I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.
I am hating this book. It's the kind of book that kept me away from historical fiction for years and years. It's entirely too raw and too vulgar for my tastes.
And I can't stop reading it. Even as the descriptive prose makes my skin crawl, I'm compulsively turning the pages. I bet my face as I read this looks like I'm sucking a lemon, and yet I read on...
I chose this book as my Square #2 / Guy Fawkes themed book:
Any book about the English monarchy (any genre), political treason, political thrillers, or where fire is a major theme, or fire is on the cover.
This book has all of the above. But I'm still not sure I won't screw up the fortitude to DNF the thing.
