Reviews of historical fiction and its sub-genres and other news with a historical focus.
I am an avid reader of historical fiction and its sub-genres spanning the times of William the Conqueror and World War II. My favourite eras in history are World War I, World War II, the Napoleonic wars, the English Civil War and the Restoration. I started this blog mainly to keep track and record my thoughts on the books I read, but I also participate in reading challenges and memes.
I challenged myself to read 50 new-to-me books in 2010 and keep a record of what I read and what I thought. My reviews were taking over my personal blog so I decided to start one solely dedicated to books. I review everything I read and I’ll read pretty much anything recommended to me!
I am an avid reader and have quite an eclectic taste in reading. I recently started my own blog to record my Book Reviews which also get posted to Goodreads.
Book Reviews & News
I’m a reader, a book-lover, a former bookseller, a librarian and a writing student (at Swinburne Uni). I’ve been working in the Australian book industry for close to ten years, currently as a book selector for libraries. The impulse to start this site came from a desire to join the conversation, and to hopefully start new ones. I read widely, and my interests are many and varied, though I tend to mostly read contemporary & literary fiction, short stories & essays, narrative non-fiction (history, science, current affairs, natural history) and biographies.
A book blog dedicated to reading challenges and book reviews. It also features libraries around Sydney and library themed resources, such as podcasts and journals.

Carpe Librum: Seize the Book – A blog containing book reviews, giveaways and author interviews
Confessions From Romaholics is run by a group of ladies who love to read. We are all about the romance, young adult, new adult and more. Created in August 2012, we aim to bring fresh reviews about the books we love, interviews from our favourite authors and more.
I enjoy a variety of genre and read based on mood. I enjoy unique, bizarre reads but I also like literary, horror, fantasy and other “usual” genre. I love working with indie authors to promote their work.
Love reading and wanted to start writing about it
The title Knowledge Lost was adapted from the title Paradise Lost by John Milton. I decided on this title to symbolise the fact that there is so much to learn and so much knowledge out there that previously was lost to me. As I discover and learn new things, I realise there are so much more to learn so this blog keeps growing and growing. A few years ago I started Literary Exploration as a dedicated book blog, I did this because my passion was always book blogging and I felt it would be a good idea to have this blog separate to the rest of my blogging.

My Reading List: A Bookcrosser’s Love of Reading … And Other Book-Related Things.
This is what the title says, and normally, it’s pretty much what I do. I talk about books and reading, bookstores and other book-related things that go along with just about anyone’s reading list… to make my reading list yours. It’s very much a nice read and I ask my public questions to keep them with me – to encourage them to comment, but I don’t get many who do. I guess I have a shy crowd. My Reading List is also translatable… making it easier for anyone in the world to plug into it.
Blogging about parenting, current affairs, humour and book reviews.
Hi! I’m Shannon Jade: world creator and cat appreciator. I think stories are pretty amazing, so I read, review, and tell as many as I can! I’m a proud Hufflepuff and tea connoisseur. I write picture books, middle grade, and young adult fiction. I hope to create stories that are as magical to readers as the stories I read are to me.
