J is for James, Syrie
The latest installment (the letter J) of The Alphabet in Historical Fiction which is hosted by the lovely ladies over at Historical Tapestry, I'm going to revisit two of my favorites reads of 2009 written by Syrie James.
I read both the author's books in October of last year, it was a great month. The first one I read was The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte and I was instantly in love in the time period and my not being a fan of Bronte I was amazed on how much I enjoyed her character in the book. I then went on a search for the author's first novel, The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen, although I enjoyed very much I felt that the book wasn't as gripping as The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte. But both books have that quality that I'm always looking for, entertainment. They were so good that I eventually both copies of my own, so whenever the mood strikes I can go and visit Charlotte and Jane.
You can find my thoughts on The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte,here. And my thoughts on The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen, here.
I'm looking forward on the author's upcoming book, Dracula My Love: The Secret Journals of Mina Harker.
