Mount TBR - Book 1

The Stockholm Octavo - Karen Engelmann

The Stockholm Octavo, Karen Englemann

 

So the Mount TBR challenge has started, and the first book from my list is The Stockholm Octavo by Karen Englemann. I'm reading this as a buddy read with a Goodreads group, and so far it's a winner.

 

I am galloping through this at an alarming speed. It's got everything I love in a book. Intrigue, a hint of magic, well-drawn characters, 18th century fashions, lovely prose, exotic locations, and a great story that I have no idea where it's going end, but I'm loving the journey. 

 

And I've finished it. And what a cracking read it was.  With the added bonus of learning a little about Scandinavian history.
