february-08-purchases.jpgI seem to have been concentrating more on movies and music this month but there have been one or two small purchases of a bookish nature:

Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn – Lady Julia Grey seeks the truth about the death of her husband in 1880s London; looks like great fun, and Deanna’s blog is well worth a read too;

Henry VIII’s Last Victim by Jesse Childs – award-winning biography of  Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey, executed in 1547;

The Professor’s Daughter by Joann Sfar & Emmanuel Guibert – graphic novel about love between the daughter of an Egyptologist and a mummy, Imhotep IV – beautifully drawn;

Going Out and Bright Young Things by Scarlett Thomas – had to get a hold of these second hand but well worth the search, I’m sure.
