Summer Reading

Some interesting books that I would like to read over the remainder of summer (in the southern hemisphere).

The Book of Lost Fragrances by MJ Rose - "... fuses history and suspense moving from Cleopatra's Egypt and the terrors of revolutionary France to Tibet's battle with China and the glamour of modern-day Paris ..."
Hawk Quest by Robert Lyndon - follows the quest of a young French knight named Vallon in search of four rare gyrfalcons in the aftermath of the Norman Conquest
The House of Silk by Anthony Horowitz - a novel of Sherlock Holmes narrated by Dr Watson 
We All Wore Stars by Theo Coster - memories of the classmates of Anne Frank
Treasure From The Attic by Mirjam Pressler - story of Anne Frank's family
Life Below Stairs by Alison Maloney - lives of Edwardian servants
Abandoned Women by Lucy Frost - Scottish women convicts exiled to Van Dieman's Land (Australia) in the early 19th century
Contested Will by James Shaprio - another "who wrote Shakespeare"
