Title: Written in My Own Heart’s Blood
Author: Diana Gabaldon
Published: June 2014, by Delacorte
Genre: This is tricky. Historical Fiction, Suspense, Romance
Okay, so this is book eight of my all time favorite series, ever. If you haven’t read Outlander (book 1), go read it. It does take some people a little bit to get into, but once I read the first two books there was no going back. Hi, I’m Pam, and I’m addicted to Outlander. I even ordered Starz so I could watch the series.
Anyways, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood. Kind of a gross title, but eh, what are you gonna do? I recently wrote a review about another favorite series of mine, and I was glad that it was finally ending on book eight. This series however, I don’t want it to end. Ever. I love the characters and Mrs. Gabaldon is just an amazing writer.
My one wish would be that it would go to two POVs, Claire’s and Brianna’s. I like novels with singular POVs and that’s how Outlander started out. I get that Mrs. Gabaldon wants to tell the stories of other important characters, but Claire is my favorite, and I felt like this book was lacking a bit in the Claire and Jamie department. I wanted more!
But I’m sure I’ll get more….in the next book.
So if you haven’t picked up Outlander, and you like historical fiction, what are you waiting for?
And if you’ve read it and don’t like it? I don’t even want to talk to you.
Just kidding. A little.
