Book Meme

cuz why not? :-P

My buddy Sprite does this meme from time to time and I have to agree with her – It's one you can do a few times a year and have remarkably diverse answers every time.

The Book(s) I Am Currently Reading
I am currently reading “The American Heiress” about a young woman who travels to Britain in the 1880s in search of a titled husband. Cora Cash eventually finds a husband, the Duke of Wareham. It flatly says on the cover that this is the perfect book for folks going through Downton Abbey withdrawal and is it ever correct! Although set earlier than the show, this story is similar to the Countess of Grantham. She came to Britian and married an Earl. This book has, obviously a very similar premise but I don't the Duke and the Duchess are nearly as happy as the Granthams though. :-(

The Book I Finished Last

A Monstrous Regiment of Women by Laurie King. This is the second book of the Mary Russell series. The book I finished before this one was the first book of the series–The Beekeeper's Apprentice. This is a mystery series centered on Mary Russell, an Oxford graduate in the early twentieth century and her companion Sherlock Holmes. King wonderfully picks up where Doyle left off with his novels and the two characters play off each other I such interesting ways!

The Next Book I Want to Read
Rules of Civility by Amor Towles or perhaps something a little farther back in time??? Hmmmmm. While not all that further back in history, I'm quite interested in The Yellow House. I know very very little about the Irish Revolution.

Random Note

I'm writing this using a new app for my iPad. Please pardon grammatical errors. I'm usually pretty good at catching them but that doesn't mean a few won't slide by.
