Q: Do you read historical fiction?
A: I do, but am picky with it. It has to be a subject I connect to like a mystery. Vampires and such do not attract me in historical books, and honestly, neither do romance. I can't enjoy reading about a heaving bosom. đŸ€·

  4. I have been wanting to read Salman Rushdie for some time now. I know some of his books are a bit controversial, which only adds to the appeal. I really like the excerpts you shared, I will have to check this one out! Are you enjoying it?

    I was so excited to get my Friday56 up that I completely forgot about the BBHOP question! I love historical fiction, especially if the book is set in and around the World Wars. Victorian historical mysteries are probably among my favorite though. I do enjoy historical romance from time to time.

    I hope you have a great weekend, Freda! Thanks again for hosting!

    1. This is the most unique piece of literature I have ever read.... I will have to let you know at the end if I 'enjoy' it. :-)

  5. I managed a bookstore when this author's book, Satanic Verses came out. Bookstores were being threatened if they sold it. I was told if I sold it, something awful would happen to me. They were bombing stores to keep the book off the shelves. Sorry, nothing to so with your book, but I think of it every time I hear his name. I'd love for you and your readers to check out mine. https://lisaksbookthoughts.blogspot.com/2019/08/its-cozy-food-friday-that-means-its.html

    1. I believe that is why this book appealed to me. Knowing how controversial he is, I wanted to know why, having not read anything previously.

  10. Hope you enjoy your new read! I have read Rushdie before, but his style doesn't do much for me--I'm not really a fan.

  11. On the book blog hop - I enjoy reading historical fiction, particularly those centered around slavery and civil rights. For example, Kindred (Octavia Butler) and The Kitchen House (Kathleen Grissom).

    On Friday 56 - The cover is intriguing and the quote makes me to find out more.

  12. I just started laughing in the best way to your explanation re: historical fiction and what doesn't work for you within the genre. " I can't enjoy reading about a heaving bosom." I AM 100% WITH YOU. It just doesn't work. It makes me want to eject myself from the planet for a few moments. (Okay, that was dramatic, but also kind of true?)

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
