A Great and Terrible Beauty, The Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray

So a while back my friend let me borrow these books. The first one is called A Great Terrible Beauty. They are by Libba Bray and they take place in Victorian England I guess you can call it.

"It’s 1895, and after the suicide of her mother, 16-year-old Gemma Doyle is shipped off from the life she knows in India to Spence, a proper boarding school in England. Lonely, guilt-ridden, and prone to visions of the future that have an uncomfortable habit of coming true, Gemma’s reception there is a chilly one. To make things worse, she’s been followed by a mysterious young Indian man- a man sent to watch her. But why? What is her destiny? And what will her entanglement with Spence’s most powerful girls—and their foray into the spiritual world—lead to?"

The second book is called Rebel Angel and the third is A Sweet Far Thing.



Sovay by Celia Rees

So this week I am reading a great book called Sovay by Celia Rees. It's a great read if you like Old England times.

"A Robin Hood –esque heroine stars in this historical masterpiece. In 1794 England, the beautiful Sovay dons a man’s cloak and holds up stagecoaches in broad daylight. Posing as a highway robber began as a lark to test a suitor’s devotion. But when she lifts the wallet of one of England’s most dangerous men, Sovay begins to unravel a web of deceit and duplicity."
