The Alice Network by Kate Quinn
The Alice Network - Kate Quinn

Best book I have read all year and quite possibly my favorite Quinn novel yet. This book proves Quinn can bring any era to life with characters who you will find yourself crying over when it is all said and done. Seriously, I need to go find a corner to curl up in now. I just don't know what to do with myself now that there is no more. Maybe if I go to bed early enough I will dream of Finn *sigh*

The Queen's Accomplice (A Maggie Hope Mystery)- Susan Elia MacNeal
The Queen's Accomplice: A Maggie Hope Mystery - Susan Elia MacNeal

On the heels of millions of women world wide, coming together to protest the fact that women are still treated like some sort of inferior species of unknown descent, I picked up this novel. I adore Maggie Hope. She may be a little anachronistic at times but I'm will to let it slide. Partially because she's a redhead and us redheads have to stick together. Mainly I let it slide because of events like yesterday. A fictional Maggie Hope was fighting nearly 80 years ago to be given rights many women still don't have today. All I can think of is the various images of women carrying signs that read "It's 2017 and I can't believe I'm still protesting this shit." Hopefully I won't have to see pictures of my eldest daughter, ten years from now at the tender age of 18, wearing a va-jay-jay hat carrying the same sign. 

 

By the way, I thought this book was excellent.

Reading progress update: I've read 20 out of 368 pages.
The Queen's Accomplice: A Maggie Hope Mystery - Susan Elia MacNeal

I'm 20 pages in and already Maggie Hope is standing up to her male superiors by demanding to know why women aren't treated the same as the men. After all, aren't the female British spies fighting for the same thing as the men? Are women dying for the country like men? It is complete coincidence that I picked up this book on the heels of yesterdays wondrous, global events. It's sad that even after everything, we are still fighting the same fight all these years later.
