New books!

Last week i bought two more books to my collection. I'm no time to read now, but when i finish my exames i get it! LOL

- The birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant (O nascimento de Vênus): Talks a lot about art and especially on the Italy Renaissance. The protagonist is Alessandra Cecchi, a girl with fifteen years old when her dad brings a young painter back from europe to decorate to chapel walls in the family's Florentine palazzo. Alessandra is intoxicated by the painter’s abilities.

But their burgeoning relationship is interrupted when Alessandra’s parents arrange her marriage to a wealthy, much older man. Meanwhile, Florence is changing, increasingly subject to the growing suppression imposed by the fundamentalist monk Savonarola, who is seizing religious and political control. Alessandra and her native city are caught between the Medici state, with its love of luxury, learning, and dazzling art, and the hellfire preaching and increasing violence of Savonarola’s reactionary followers. Played out against this turbulent backdrop, Alessandra’s married life is a misery, except for the surprising freedom it allows her to pursue her powerful attraction to the young painter and his art.

-  Death in Berlin by Pierre Frei (Morte em Berlim): Is about a serial killer that attacking german girls after the second world war, the terror continues. 

Good Read (:
