Mushroom Basket And Book Recommendations Please

Today I'm here with a challenge and also I'm looking for recommendations for books for my Kindle, see further down for more info.  Now on with my midway creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Black, White + One' So you can use black and white then choose one other colour  for this challenge.  I chose brown as my + one colour, using this cute little Hedgie.  I kept the card simple so that my Hedgehog was the main focal point.  Matted and layered with both black card and brown card.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Woodware stamp, Sizzix. Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your animal stamps out isn't it!!!!!!

So my Husband John and my Daughter Jodie put together and bought me a Kindle Paperwhite for my Birthday. I haven't read in bed for a couple of years now as it keeps John awake, I so missed reading in bed especially 2 & 3 o'clock in the morning when I can't sleep.  I am looking for recommendations for a good read. I read historical romance, fantasy and general fiction.  My favourite Authors are Josephine Cox, Lena Kennedy, Dilly Court. Philippa Gregory and William Horwood.  I have every book that Josephine Cox and Lena Kennedy have written and currently collecting Dilly Court and Philippa Gregory.  I am a bit OCD with my books, I keep them and can't get rid of any, I can't let anyone else read them, and I can only read new books, not ones from the library or a charity shop I'm afraid.  I have to collect every book written by the Author, and read them in order of the date they are written, this is where the website Fantastic Fiction comes in handy, I use it all the time.  If I like the book I can read them more than once too.
So I'm looking at the following Authors Rita Bradshaw, Katie Flynn, Rosie Goodwin and Lyn Andrews, I haven't read any of there's yet.  So if any one has an opinion on these Authors it would be welcome.
I do read other books, I read a lot of Auschwitz survivor books too.
I'd love some feedback on this and thank you in advance.

Thank you for popping by my blog.
Happy crafting

Really lovely card and a super cute image.

I can not tell you about the Authors as they don't ring any bells with me. I have a Kindle and I go on a sight called BookBub thought I would tell you incase you haven't heard of it. You tick your preferences of the type of books you like to read then they will send you a mail everyday with at least 3 but sometimes 6 suggestions of books in that field. Some are free, some are 99p and some can be a couple of pounds. I have had some really great free books from them.

What a cutie that hedgehog is and your design shows him off so well. Super cute card!

I am not familiar with the authors you are asking about, but wanted to say my favorite historical romance novels are by Phillipa Carr (a.k.a Victoria Holt), especially her Daughters of England series. I love reading books about the medieval times and can read Phillipa Carr's over and over. Her books were written in the 70's - 80's I think, so you may be familiar with the author. If you decide to read them, get them in order, as they are about the same family tree through generations. The first one in the series is called "Miracle at St. Bruno's".
Have fun with your new Kindle. I should get one too...been reading on my Ipad mini but I think a kindle would be nicer for that purpose.

This is a great CAS design with spectacular coloring. I love the flourish with the sentiment.
