Literary Whiplash

Promptly upon completing #SOL17 I binge read two novels. It’s been a while since I’ve done that and frankly I’m feeling out of sorts – out of time and sync with present day. I’ve devoured two separate worlds in a short time frame. 

Both books are historical fiction. The Chosen Maiden is about Bronislava Nijinska, famed Russian dancer of the early 20th century. The novel is rich in artistic details. 


The Valiant is a Young Adult novel about a Celtic princess captured in the time of Julius Ceasar, sent to Rome as a slave and becomes a gladiator. 


While reading the books I became completely immersed in another era. Landing back in the here and now is a shock. I’m experiencing literary whiplash.
