Last week I was too exhausted to put together my Friday Finds so this week I've got more to share. :)
Here are the books added to my TBR list recently:
- Tiger Burning Bright, by Theodora DuBois - This novel is set during the 1857 Sepoy Rebellion in India, and it sounds fascinating. I heard about this from Puss Reboots - go check out her review for more info.
- The Conqueror: A Novel of William the Conqueror, the Bastard Son Who Overpowered a Kingdom and the Woman Who Melted His Heart, by Georgette Heyer- According to S. Krishna, this is definitely NOT one of Heyer's regency romance novels. Rather, it reads more like a textbook. That's ok with me though, as I've always wanted to learn more about William.
- one of the many books by Steven Pressfield - In this post Lezlie talks about his skill at writing battle scenes. That's something I raved about in a recent review of Bernard Cornwell's books. Most of Pressman's book are set in ancient Greece so I'm VERY intrigued. Here are some of the titles in case you want to check them out: Tides of War, Gates of Fire, The Virtues of War, The Afghan Campaign, The Last of the Amazons.
Here are the books I thought Kiddo might enjoy:
- The Mystery of the Haunted Lighthouse, by Elspeth Campbell Murphy - Bookish Ruth says: "This book is part of an excellent Christian fiction series for children. Each book has a theme based on Biblical principles. The Mystery of the Haunted Lighthouse's theme is faithfulness. Spooky but not scary, this is an entertaining read." This is book 7 in the series.
- The Usborne Book of Science Activities - I'm sure we can find fun things to do over summer vacation in this book. She Is Too Fond of Books posted pictures of her daughter doing some of the experiments - what fun!
- Lawrence of Arabia - Yes, I AM talking about the "old" movie. I've never seen it and this post reminded me of all the wonderful things I've heard about it.
Have you read/seen any of these? What did you think of them?
You can find more Friday Finds over at MizB's.
