Happy #BookBday (12/8/15 Edition)

Happy #BookBday to two lovely historical novels on shelves now:

BEATRICE AND BENEDICK by Marina Fiorato
Set a year before the events of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, bestselling author Fiorato imagines the first youthful encounter between the famous lovers Beatrice and Benedick. “Fans of historical fiction, Gregory Maguire’s retellings of classic tales, and Geraldine Brooks’ MARCH will appreciate Fiorato’s devotion to one of classic literature’s feistiest and most enjoyable couples. Full of passion, intrigue, and wit, BEATRICE AND BENEDICK is a delight.” — Booklist, starred review

MEDICI’S DAUGHTER by Sophie Perinot
Perinot weaves a unique coming-of-age story and a forbidden love with one of the most dramatic and violent events in French history. “A riveting page-turner skillfully blending illicit liaisons and political chicanery.” — Kirkus Reviews
