The Tsar's Escort: A Romanov Appreciation Book Club
« on: June 02, 2014, 03:53:04 PM »
Hello everyone! I didn't know where to post this so I thought I'd start on here (aha). Ive started a Romanov book club on goodreads (membership free and very easy):

In the words of author Sarah Miller, the Romanovs embody everything that captures people's attention: "celebrity, royalty, beauty, youth, power, wealth — and, of course, tragedy. One or two items on that list are enough to grab most people. The Romanovs can boast all seven."

The book club is dedicated to creating an active, respectful, safe community for Romanov fans to discuss and share their love for Romanov biographies and historical fiction novels related, but not limited to, Tsar Nicholas II.



Though all reads will be picked via choice, as our inaugural read, I would like to propose "Four Sisters" / "The Romanovs Sisters" by Helen Rappaport. It is the first book of its kind, and will be released early June and is already out in UK. Please let me know if this is problem! Thank you!

A Romanov or more like a NAOTMAA book club?
Берёзы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

(Афанасий Фет: «Ивы и берёзы», 1843 / 1856)

Other Romanovs besides NII could be AOTMAA.
