Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Reading progress update: I've read 65 out of 444 pages.

A Burnable Book - Bruce   Holsinger

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.
