Shoot That Book combines my passion for books and my tendency to become trigger happy with a camera. My lack of photography skills is compensated by my enthusiasm. Basically, I like taking pictures of books.
I love Eva Ibbotson’s romantic historical fiction novels and I realized that I don’t get to feature them that often here on the blog so I thought I’d post pictures of my copies for this week’s Shoot That Book:
I can’t remember where I heard it but I believe these titles weren’t originally published as young adult and were only repackaged as such when the genre started to become popular. I guess that’s a good thing because I discovered her work when A Countess Below Stairs caught my eye in the YA section of a local bookstore. I thought the premise looked interesting so I went ahead and grabbed a copy. Even though I don’t picture the girls in the covers as the characters in the books, I still think these editions look pretty. They sort of have a fairy tale feel to them, right?
Have you read Eva Ibbotson’s novels? What’s your favorite? My favorites are A Countess Below Stairs and The Reluctant Heiress. If you have recommendations similar to her work, I’d love to hear them.
