Edge of Eternity by Ken Follett

I am currently reading Fall of Giants, the first book in the Century Trilogy, an historical fiction that takes place during World War I, and it’s turning out to be an incredible read. Book 2, Winter of the World, covers the Spanish Civil War, World War II and the beginning of the Cold War. Book 3, Edge of Eternity, starts in the 1960s and ends in the 1980s.

Release Date: 16 September 2014

The King’s Curse by Philippa Gregory

I’m a big fan of Philippa Gregory. I discovered her with the Wideacre Trilogy, and I think I have read pretty much all her books. This new release tells the story of Margaret Pole, a lady-in-waiting at the court of Henry VIII.

A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James

Marlon James’ previous novel, The Book of Night Women, was very well received when it came out in 2009. His new book begins on 3 December 1976, two days before a general election in Jamaica, when gunmen attempted to kill Bob Marley in Kingston. The story then spans three decades and is a fictional account of these troubled times.

Written by Cecile

Cécile Sune was born in Lyon, France, and her obsession with books started when she was 14. Her grandparents had lent her Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell, and she spent part of the summer indoors reading. Needless to say, her tan didn't really improve that year! It was also around that time that Cécile fell in love with the English language. Several years later, in 1999, Cécile moved to Toronto, Canada, with her cat and 5 suitcases. Her love of reading greatly increased when she discovered that English books were much cheaper than French novels. In 2013, she decided to start a blog to share her passion. Cécile now lives in Ottawa, Canada, with her husband and their daughter, and works as a freelance translator (CS Revision).
