The first Pre-Reads of 2017 are here! With all the excitement of my new pupper and his Instagram account, I am rushing to finish this post on time. The process was made more lengthy (in a pleasant way) because the list of new 19th century books debuting this month was incredibly large; over 20 for non-fiction (almost unheard of) and almost 40 for fiction! Lots of sifting was needed. So you best believe the list below is the crème de la crème of the pile! We are talking superbly reviewed tomes to add to your To Read List. –I do wonder how much the PBS series Victoria is influencing publications, not that I am against it in any way. –More people to share the love with!
Below are sixteen titles, eight fiction, eight non-fiction books pertaining to the 19th century in some way. They come highly reviewed with Kirkus Review, Library Journal, Publisher’s Weekly, Amazon, and Baker and Taylor recommendations. Summaries and reviews provided are lifted straight from these sources. Each book was released just this month (for the first time ever, there are not any reprints that I am are of! Astounding!) Likewise, because these publications are hot off the press, I have not personally read any of them, but some are making their way on to my own To Read List. What books are you adding to your list? I would love to hear your preference in the comment section below as well as any reviews after reading them.
