This one's a memmior about the author's experience attending Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. Basically a foodie book (with recipes!) set in Paris sounds like a perfect book for me.
The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs
I've been seeing this book around for a while now. I couldn't tell you completely what it's about, but I have a feeling it'll be similar to The Christmas Cookie Club which I really enjoyed.
The Time in Between by Maria Duenas
This is a historical fiction that takes place in Spain during World War II. It's supposed to be somewhat similar to Casablanca. Ever since I've heard about this being published, I've been wanting to read it, so I'm excited to now have the chance.
Belong to Me by Marisa de los Santos
This is another one I've had my eye on ever since I heard about it, although I couldn't tell you exactly what it's about, I'm still thinking I'll enjoy it.
The Perfect Royal Mistress by Diane Haeger
I've actually read one of Diane Haeger's books before although it has been a while. This book is about Nell Gwynne, who I've read about recently. This time period (the reign of Charles II) has become one of my favorites lately, so I'm always up for new books from it.
Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky
This is actually a historical novel written by a France Jew. However before she was able to finish writing it, she was deported to Auschwitz where she died. I think the story behind this book is awfully interesting, and can't beleive I hadn't heard of it before now.
Wither & Fever by Lauren Desefano
I'm SOOO excited to read this. I've been obsessed with Wither ever since I heard of it, and just hope it lives up to my expectations.
A Foreign Affair & A Dangerous Affair by Caro Peacock
I hadn't heard about this before, but the fact they're historical fiction that takes place in Victorian England makes me think they're just the thing for me.
Now that you've seen the books I've picked up, you might be wondering where they're from. Well they're actually from a blogger meet-up!
Did you find any great books this week? And have you ever been to a blogger meet-up?
