  1. How did you like City of Dark Magic? I’m remember being intrigued because I love Prague, but I don’t remember much other than that when I first came across it

  2. What a lovely selection of book, Loreen:) I have to confess to only having read the Harry Potter series – but Sorcerer to the Crown and City of Dark Magic are on my To Get list. Thank you for sharing.

  3. This is such a wonderful list. I loved The Shadow of the Wind and also a huge fan of Sarah Waters’ writing. Nice variety of settings, I’ll have to check some of these out. 🙂

    1. Crazy Rich Asians is such a good, light, fluffy summer read. It’s a story about crazy rich people in Hong Kong which is a place I haven’t read a lot about.


  4. I love this topic and what an intriguing list of books. In a Dark, Dark Wood and In the Shadow of the Wind have been on my radar for a while – nice to be reminded of them!
