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!
It's my own 'solo book club' where I write long, rambling and thoughtful reviews about the books I read and the authors I love.
I love reading, but more and more I listen to audiobooks. Whereas once I loved to read psychological thrillers, gory murders, poetry and academic articles, (not forgetting those Serious Literary Works) one day I just didn't want to any more.
I still read murder and mysteries, but of the Cozy/Cosy kind, and most of my reviews are of this category.
I began posting reviews on Goodreads, then found I could get free audiobooks simply by writing reviews, Who knew? Now I also post on Audible and Amazon Books, and am starting this little review blog - with no great expectations of anything, but it's something to do, and a new skill for me.
a great place for reviews and information
A place for me to discuss all things bookish such as book reviews, author interviews, book tours, guest posts and giveaways.
Hi, I'm Bec! I have recently re-discovered the joys of reading and I've made this blog to review the books I read as well as get ideas for new books! After I read the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy, then the Crossfire Trilogy I was hooked on romance/chicklit/bad boy/alpha male books. I just love to get lost in the book and I can easily sit outside and read a book in an afternoon or two. I have a lot of books to read and my library card, my local bookstore and my ipad kindle are all seeing me a lot! I hope I can help others to find some intense guys to swoon over!
Personal blog of Marxist Horror Writer, Benjamin Solah with thoughts and discussion on literature, publishing, horror, Australian and world politics, and culture
I like to post my thoughts as I am reading. There are also links to my reading lists, and my book club newsletters. I've also challenged myself to include 25 books a year from the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You die in my reading selection.
Editor, book reviewer, writer, mother-of-three. Adventures ensue.
A project of love, a blogging obession, and a voracious appetite for books - add them all to gether and you get BOOK BITES! Discussion, reviews, new releases, memes, covers, and other fun items I come across online.
Book Couture: Tina-speak for high-end book fashion, where one Aussie teenage booklover is sharing her thoughts on books she loves, books she doesn't love, and everything in between. On a happy day, Tina will read until the pages blur, and then unleash all the juicy new gossip on Book Couture, a blog that is quickly becoming less of a hobby, and more of a passion. Beware: Tina loves all sorts of books, and reads everything she can get her hands on. She is prone to squealing and hyperventilating when anything distinctly book-like is placed in front of her. Tina would love to hear from you at email@example.com ------------------------------------- To blog admin: I was wondering if you could use this header graphic?

Book to the Future is more than just a blog: it's a journey through time. For the next two-and-a-bit years, I'll be reading and reviewing one book every week, risking life and limb to read great works of literature in the year they were first published. My journey began in the year 1900 - every week since, I move forward one year in the future, reviewing a book that first hit the shelves in that year. Confusing? Possibly. But if you like reading, time travel and nice, hot cups of tea, you'll love Book to the Future.
I read and review a wide range of fiction genre from literature and the classics through to mystery thrillers and chick lit. I host the Aussie Author Reading Challenge.
