Can you recommend a good book or series of books to read while on holiday?? I loved Outlander as novels and would like something similar ie mixture of romance with drama action etc.

anonymous asked: Hi! What are some good books that you would recommend? I’m an avid reader and am always looking for new suggestions. Thanks!

Oh, so many recommendations!

I know that a lot of Outlander fans love the Bronze Horseman series by Paullina Simons. I believe there are 3 books with a good mix of history, romance, angst, and action.

And Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati - a great historical novel with a healthy dose of romance and action. With a cameo by Claire Fraser (really!). I believe there are three or four books in the series.

If you want a good mix of time travel, and adventure, I highly highly recommend Time and Again by Jack Finney.

Some other books I’ve read recently that I’ve really enjoyed:

  • In The Heart Of The Sea by Nathaniel Philbrick
  • The Alienist by Caleb Carr
  • Icefields by Thomas Wharton
  • To Have and Have Not by Ernest Hemingway
  • The Big Sky by A. B. Guthrie, Jr.
  • Anthem by Ayn Rand

Readers - any other suggestions?

With much love,

Gotham

When you die, you’ll be wearing your white dress with red roses, and your hair will be long and falling around your shoulders. When they shoot you, up on your damn roof or walking alone on the street, your blood will look like another red rose on your dress, and no one will notice, not even you when you bleed out for Mother Russia.”   - The Bronze Horseman

The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons

Soldier! Let me cradle your head and caress your face, let me kiss your dear sweet lips and cry across the seas and whisper through the icy Russian grass how I feel for you … Luga, Ladoga, Leningrad, Lazarevo … Alexander, once you carried me, and now I carry you. Into my eternity, now I carry you.

Through Finland, through Sweden, to America, hand outstretched, I stand and limp forward, the galloping steed black and riderless in my wake. Your heart, your rifle, they will comfort me, they’ll be my cradle and my grave.

Lazarevo drips you into my soul, dawn drop by moonlight drop from the river Kama. When you look for me, look for me there, because that’s where I will be all the days of my life. (Tatiana)
