My reading list for the month.
- An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge by Ambrose Bierce.
This author and this story have been on my reading list for a while. I finally got my hands on a copy of this book. An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge by Ambrose Bierce is a short story set during the American Civil War. The story is about Peyton Farquhar, a civilian, who is a wealthy planter and slave owner, as he is being prepared for execution by hanging from an Alabama bridge, that is seized by the Union Army.
2. The Hemlock Cure by Joanne Burn.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. The Hemlock Cure by Joanne Burn is a historical fiction novel. It is set in 1665, Eyam, England. The backdrop of this story is set against the Bubonic plague. It has a very promising premise, and I am excited to read it. Because it is set during the plague, it kept me away from this book for a bit, especially given what’s going around us. But, I am finally going to start reading it.
3. Who’s Afraid of Mr. Wolfe? by Hazel Osmond.
I haven’t read any other works by Hazel Osmond before, so it’s a completely new author for me. I liked the blurb of this novel, and it seems like a perfect read for a weekend. Who’s Afraid of Mr. Wolfe? follows Ellie Somerset. She is happy with her copywriting job at an advertising agency and her workaholic boyfriend, Sam. When her new boss Jack, enters the picture; her life as she knows it changes.
