Bookish Gold...

Looking for some bookish gold? 
Try one (or more!) of these eight "gilded" reads:


1. The Gilded Lily by Helen Argers
(Think Edith Wharton but with a happier ending!)

2. A Gilded Grave by Shelley Freydont
(This is a very fun mystery set among the moneyed elite of Newport, Rhode Island.)

3. The Gilded Cage by Lucinda Gray
(Set in 1871, this YA gothic revolves around two American siblings 
and the grand estate they unexpectedly inherit in England.)

4.  The Gilded Years by Karin Tanabe
(Anita Hemmings must pass as white in order to attend Vassar College
in this well-researched historical fiction novel.)

5.  The Gilded Shroud by Elizabeth Bailey
(This is the first book in Bailey's 'Lady Fan' mystery series.)

6.  In a Gilded Cage by Rhys Bowen
(Spunky Molly Murphy is back to solve another mystery.)

7.  Gilded by Christina Farley
(This YA fantasy is set in modern-day South Korea and has 
an engaging heroine named Jae Hwa Lee.)

8.  The Gilded Age by Mark Twain
(No one makes fun of America and Americans like Twain!)


Happy Reading!

  1. I haven't read any of these, although I've read excerpts from Twain's The Gilded Age! I remember being interested in The Gilded Cage when you reviewed it, so thanks for the reminder!

    1. I think you'd like that one, and A Gilded Grave as well. They're both fun historical mysteries. :)

  3. Whoa! There's a lot of books with "gilded" in the title. I haven't read any of these but I feel like I've read something with "gilded" in the title.

    1. There's a lot more out there that I didn't include on this list. I mean, who knew gilded was such a popular word in book titles anyway? :)

  4. What a fun list! I read The Gilded Age back in college, and I remember almost nothing from it. Maybe I'll try a different gilding this time :)

  5. What a great idea for a list :) I haven't read any of those, but I did read Gilded Splendour by Rosalind Laker last year.

    1. Yay, another gilded read! Did you like it? Should I read it?

  6. How refreshing to see a bunch of books with something other than "Girl" in the title. "Gilded" sounds especially fun and different. I don't know anything about Korean mythology so I'd love delve into that.

    1. Being introduced to some of Korea's folklore and myths was what I liked best about that book. Plus, the main character was a lot of fun. :)
