* Glory Over Everything: Beyond the Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom (4/16; historical fiction)
* Everyone Brave Is Forgiven by Chris Cleave (5/16; historical fiction)
* I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh (5/16; contemporary police procedural)
* _The Gene: An Intimate History_ by Siddhartha Mukherjee (5/16)

So last night I actually bought a book where one of my book groups meets: Margaret the First by Danielle Dutton. It's a novel about Margaret Cavendish, an early English writer.

I actually own the Broadview Press editions of Paper Bodies and Bell in Campo and the Sociable Companions, both written by the subject of the novel. And I own a biography of the writer: Mad Madge : the extraordinary life of Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle by Katie Whitaker.

Today I also picked up 3 ARCs:

* Prayers the Devil Answers by Sharyn McCrumb (pub date 5/16; historical fiction; her short story collection Foggy Mountain Breakdown is awesome)

* _When We Meet Again_ by Kristin Harmel (6/16; contemporary fiction with an historical tie)

* _Start Here: Master the Lifelong Habit of Wellbeing_ by Eric Langshur & Nate Klemp (5/16)

If it's March, there must be a new (historical) Sebastian St. Cyr mystery out from C.S. Harris. And there is, and now I own all 11 so far in hardcover: When Falcons Fall.

A little bit of money came my way and I bought a book by Hannah Mather Crocker, _Observations on the Real Rights of Women and Other Writings_.

And another ARC, which apparently won a Richard & Judy contest. It's historical fiction, due to be published here in June: Amy Snow: A Novel by Tracy Rees.
