The Dawn of a To-morrow

by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Such a lovely story, with typical Burnett descriptions of lesser-class people, and a lovely twist ending! Thoroughly enjoyable - Glad I took the time to read it.

Ragged Dick

by Horatio Alger

Lots of "street" action, very tame by today's standards, but a wonderful snapshot of what life must have been like at the time. Maybe a little preachy but I was willing to put up with it. This book was written with "young boys" as the target audience, and I'm sure if they understood New York City in the 1860's, it would be enjoyed. I loved it - my first Horatio Alger book.

T. Tembarom

by Frances Hodgson Burnett

A lesser-known Frances Hodgson Burnett book, written for adults, which was a "bestseller" of both 1913 and 1914. A wonderfully interesting story of a New Yorker who is transported into an English country life, with many twists and turns. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!

The Mucker

by Edgar Rice Burroughs

A lot of fun, with everything from street slums to pirate ships, to tropical islands filled with head-hunting natives, and back to New York City high life. A wonderful, now campy, read that had me considering reading ahead - it was that good!

Author of the Day

Angela Roquet
Angela Roquet loves everything macabre - with a dash of comedy. She is also fascinated by world religions, the afterlife and mythology. This clearly shows in her work, where mythological characters tend to make an appearance, showing off their more mundane sides. Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
