I’ve been a busy gal this year, but I did find time for plenty of reading, from the informative to the erotic! Here I’ve gathered together my favourite reads of 2015 – if you’ve read something wonderful this year, do add it in the comments! I’m always on the lookout for new reads.

I’m planning to make my fave reads recommendations a regular page on the blog (you can see it here) so if you think there’s something missing from it that you’d like to make 2016’s list you can drop me a line! News about books is always good news. 

And where are your own books, Lavinia, I (possibly) hear you cry? They have their own home here – this section is for me to share what I’ve loved reading, rather than what I’ve been writing!



Great scholarly yet popular history of the ancient world! A must-read for classical history lovers.


Empowering erotica that I would strongly recommend for all ladies who like to be in charge. (According to Chaucer, that’s all of us, by the way).



Young Adult fantasy romance with fairies, intrigue and plenty of heat.



Truly unique mystery novel – recommended to all lovers of interesting characters and intrigue across time.




Great fun from the lovely Julie – strongly recommended!





Old English Intrigue, Sex and Scandal. Great historical novel with incredible period detail.





Accessible popular history of royal sexuality.



Salacious historical fiction featuring everyone’s (second) favourite crazy Emperor, Domitian.




Young Adult novel – I couldn’t put it down. It’s not “fun” as such, but it’s incredible writing. Not for the faint-hearted!
