Lenoire "
I learned so much from this, looking back, but at the time it didn't feel like that. At one point I did a Google check and found out that almost all of the characters were indeed real people from the history books. Shafak breathed so much life into these characters while telling their stories. Seeing their like-nesses pop up on Wikipedia had me holding back years, as if I was reading an obituary of someone I once knew long ago."

I love it when I am reading something and then I Google something and then I fall into this rabbit hole of knowledge. I am reading this "historical romance" that fictionizes Anne Boleyn and it's interesting reading another POV of something. I have another book that's a retelling of Robin Hood but, I just haven't gotten into it...yet....it's like 500+ pages with super tinnnyyyyy font

Yes, I love those kind of rabbit holes!! If I am "supposed" to be learning something (like in school) my brain is like "meh"; but learning history and other subjects through historical and other kinds of fiction is the best!!! That sounds like a big book. The one I just started (My Lady Jane) is almost 500 pages, but sometimes I feel like I read longer books faster???

Anyway, thank you for your comment! <3

Yes,..."



I really wish there was a "like" a comment button. lol

Really? I always get discouraged when I see a book is 450+ pages. Sometimes, I don't mind if it's a really good book though. The last few books I read that was "long" were dragging a bit.
