13 Historical Romances

13 Nov

that are coming out in December. I know that lately I tend to push paranormal books, but for the next couple of weeks I’m going to find book releases that aren’t paranormal. So here are historical books. My personal favorite are medieval or Scottish. Go figure.

13 lines from Babylon Babies by Maurice G. Dantec

20 Mar

I haven’t read the book yet, but I’m going to post the first sentence from the first 13 chapters of Babylon Babies.

  • So living was an incredible experience, where the most beautiful day of your entire existence could be your last, where sleeping with death guaranteed seeing the next morning, and where a few golden rules were constant.
  • Night was the best time to kill.
  •  It was fucking hot.
  • The Wallabies were roughing up the Springboks on her screen, and Marie Zorn didn’t give a fuck.
  • Things had gotten worse on the other side of the Tekes River.
  • Romanenko’s eyes stayed fixed on Toorop whose eyes were fixed on him in return.
  • Marie Zorn watched the storm break over the city nestled beneath the window in the metal-framed rocking chair.
  • Marie got up because some strange lights were igniting the sky.
  • The event was configured in the entity called Joe-Jane’s memory in the shape of a brutal variation of internal flows.
  • The moon was red about Mont-Royal.
  • Rebecca went into the bathroom and got into the tub.
  • Romanenko didn’t stop staring at the screen.
  • “Quite frankly, Mister Gorsky, there’s no cause for alarm.”

I’ve been reading since I was 4. I began reading my mom’s romance novels at 10. By the time I was a pre-teen I was ravenous for literature, almost anything. During that time, I read 13 of the following:

  1. Nancy Drew Files by Carolyn Keene (It was my goal in life to have all of them at one point.)
  2. White Squaw by E.J. Hunter (I only read a few of these.)
  3. White Indian by Donald C. Porter (See a theme starting here?)
  4. Wagons West by Dana F. Ross (Read all of them at one time.)
  5. Everything written by Victoria Holt
  6. The Hardy Boys by Franklin Dixon
  7. Little House on the Prairie
  8. Apache by William James
  9. The books were the teens are dying or their parents have died.
  10. Chose your own Adventure
  11. Stagecoach by Hank Mitchum
  12. The Gunsmith by J.R. Roberts
  13. S.E. Hinton’s books: especially the Outsiders
