Today, I am introducing another new thing to the blog: a spotlight book. Every few days or so, the featured book will be changed. Perhaps the spotlight book will be what I am currently reading, a book I just reviewed, or an old favorite.
I will have it as the background of my blog.
The first spotlight book is The Book of Madness and Cures by Regina O’Melveny. Set in the late 16th-century, the novel is about Dr. Gabriella Mondini, a 30-year-old woman from Venetia, who challenges the gender roles set for women. Her father has disappeared ten years after he set out on a mysterious journey. Gabriella embarks on a quest to find her father and to find herself.
If you have read this novel, I would love to hear your thoughts. If I have intrigued you, please read along with me. Let’s be fellow readers together. We can discuss the novel here.
