Hello! This is my first try at properly cataloguing and reviewing the books I've read. I have a LibraryThing, but I've decided not to try to import it here - this will just be a record of books I have read and/or reviewed from November 2013 on.

 

I just finished Alison Weir's new book on Elizabeth of York and am planning to write about it here; I'm in the middle of The National Uncanny, a 1998 academic book on the spectralisation of Native Americans in American literature.

 

I really like the setup of Booklikes and I'm looking forward to having a good place to talk about books with book people.
