#NPTPast Round-up

Despite the competition of Britain’s Got Talent, our faithful tweeters were still ready for this months twitter chat. So what historically flavoured gems were you all reading this month?

Fiction

In the Green Tree by Alun Lewis

Enlightenment by Roy Porter

Enigma by Robert Harris

Projekt Saucer series by WA Harbinson

The Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger

 

Other Authors

Dickens

Stephanie Laurens

Julia Quinn

Lisa Kleypas

Elizabeth Hoyt

In Cold Blood

 

Non – Fiction

The Suspicions of Mr Whicher by Kate Summerscale

Historical biographies on Emma Hamilton and Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire

Horrible Histories series

Blackadder: The Whole Damn Dynasty by Richard Curtis

This month’s chat didn’t produce a ‘Marmite book’ (what an agreeable bunch we are!) however, we did discover that whilst people did enjoy a variety of books, anything set in WW1 or 2 caused the most excitement in discussions.

Next months theme is all about sporty books #NPTPlay

Before we sign off, here’s a brief history lesson….

Horrible Histories RAF Song

See on the last Tuesday in June for our next twitter chat

Happy Reading

Sharon
