Hooked on Bliss
Bliss Series Boxed Set: The Whole Damn Harem - BJ Harvey

What an incredible boxset, each story from BJ Harvey's "Bliss" series. I hadn't read any of these books prior too starting this, but once I started reading book 1... well I was HOOKED! I loved how I was able to see the journey to true love for each of the characters. I'm not going to ruin all the juicy details in between, I'll leave that to when your able to read them (plus I don't do spoilers). I loved being told the different POV's from the leading female & male characters, especially when the next book gave you another view of the previous couples journey & then their own. The high's, lows, history... the steamy scenes.... were freaking HOT... & definitely not repetative kept me riveted from start to finish.

The Harem Master
The Harem Master - Megan Derr Is this one generation away from Sandstorm? Meaning, is Shahjahan Ikham's son? Is Ikram one of Emre's people and why wasn't it mentioned if he stayed? Did Emre stay to become a part of Altan's harem? Ehhh, so many questions.

Review: Harem
Harem: The World Behind the Veil - Alev Lytle Croutier

Harem: The World Behind the Veil was originally published twenty-five years ago. It is now being republished with an introduction bringing in more current events in Turkey and the world, bringing to light the differences and similarities between now and a time where hstems were commonplace. As a family and cultural history, the details of the book are still relevant today, and it's interesting to see the author weave her own personal story into that of sultans and sultanas of the past, letting us see that what seems so foreign to most is recent history - or current events - for others.

 

The author does a great job at bringing her own voice into the retelling of the past, explaining in a way that modern readers will find interesting. From explaining the origins of the harem, clearing up Western modifications, to explaining in detail the rituals to castrate a eunuch, I was at times perplexed, horrified, amused, and curious. 

 

This isn't a perfect book... At times I was bored but some sight repetition, but overall I think this is a good book. It has survived the past twenty-five years well, continuing to be interesting and informative both, and is a book that I would certainly recommend to anyone interested in the Middle East, Turkey, Islam, or even just a fragment of history that we know so little of.

 

Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
