TBR Bookshelf

This is my personal list of books that I have on my bookshelf at home that need to be read. As you can see I have a bit of a problem with buying books even though I still have a TON to read.

  1. I loved Sandra Gulland's Josephine trilogy and Michelle Moran's Madame Tussaud; they were both fascinating women to read about. I've added so many books to my TBR shelf just from looking at your list. :) Thank you!

  2. I have been looking for a historical romance for the last 25 years but cannot find it. Could you recommend sites where I could search. Libraries and amazon databases don't have it. Any help would be much appreciated. The novel is called Henry of Navarre but all books with that title are not the one I'm searching for.
