Mary Tudor, Bloody Mary

Mary Tudor: Courageous Queen Or Bloody Mary?

I'll start this review by saying that I highly recommend Mary Tudor: Courageous Queen or Bloody Mary? by Jane Buchanan.
Denise MIna

Garnethill Trilogy

While we're on the subject of mysteries, I see the latest book by Scottish crime writer Denise Mina, just hit the shelves
Emile Zola

The Masterpiece

The Masterpiece set off a few shockwaves, not just among literary critics who loved to grouse about Zola's gritty and extreme approach to realism

From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

We all agree that E. L. Konigsburg's From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler is a brilliant read, no matter what your age.
Janet Fitch

Paint it Black

Janet Fitch's Paint It Black is aptly named. Josie's is one of the hardest drinking and drugging women I've met in fiction in a while.
E. M. Forster

Reads on Writing

Arnold Lobel

The Adventures of Frog and Toad

Arnold Lobel's Frog and Toad Are Friends, published in 1970, is the first in a series of four books about these two famous friends
Agatha Christie

I can recommend two intriguing adult treatments of Agatha Christie's mysterious disappearance from Styles, her real-life home, in Sunningdale, Berkshire.
Elizabeth Taylor, author

William Shakespeare

Antony & Cleopatra

Antony & Cleopatra is fast-paced, almost suspenseful (even though, it being a Shakespearean tragedy, we know how the major players will meet their end).
Jan Pienkowski

The Fairy Tales

The Fairy Tales are also appropriate, despite their darker elements, for children who have perhaps overindulged on the sugar-coated Disney versions
Arnold Lobel

The Adventures of Frog and Toad

Arnold Lobel's Frog and Toad Are Friends, published in 1970, is the first in a series of four books about these two famous friends
Wilkie Collins

The Moonstone

The Moonstone is a very long tale about a precious gem stolen from the brow of a Hindu deity that wreaks havoc on an English family
Elizabeth Taylor, author

Blaming

BlamingĀ by Elizabeth Taylor is the story of an unlikely friendship that forms between Amy, an Englishwoman, and Martha, an American
