message 1: by Bettie (new)

Bettie I thought I had ordered The Dante Club but I received The Vesuvius Club - it looks good.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) There are a few books on this list that either don't deal with authors at all (e.g., Plaidy's Light on Lucrezia, which is about Lucrezia Borgia) or not with real-life authors (e.g., Possession -- the book's actual protagonists are NOT real life authors, albeit modelled on Robert Browning and Christina Rossetti).

Jessica: Do you want any books to be removed, or are you OK with these additions?

Booklovinglady I've read Girl with a Pearl Earring (#8) but I can't remember it being about a real-life author....? Painter yes, but not an author, as far as I can remember. Help me out here, someone?

Apart from the fact that I don't see it as historical fiction, I can't remember Pride and Prejudice (#54) being about a real-life author either.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I doubt whether most of the books on this Listopia fit the description given, being Works of historical fiction about REAL-life authors. Or am I just reading this wrong? Which is always possible, of course.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Possession is indeed about authors, but they're both fictional.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Jessica - do you want this list weeded?
