I really like a heroine who knows her own mind, and luckily, Regency romance provides me with a fair few young ladies with interests outside catching a husband…
Well, January seems to have gone by quickly! It’s been a great reading month for me, but that doesn’t mean I can take things easy!
Goodreads Reading Challenge
I read 47 books this month. That’s my best ever, I think! Since my goal works out to a book a day, I’ve been trying to build in a buffer on quiet days in case there are days when I can’t finish a whole book! Thus far, I’m very pleased.

You might have seen over on Twitter that I’ve been making an effort to get up-to-date with my shamefully overdue NetGalley shelves – please do come and join me with the hashtag #NonStopNetGalley if you could also do with a push to get that shelf cleared! So for the next few days, there will most likely be a couple of posts a day, so I can get my reviews done in a timely fashion…
Anyway, today is the turn of The Sisters of the Winter Wood – a historical fairy-tale that I’d been wanting to read for ages!
This is a sweet but slightly uninspiring Victorian romance with a cinnamon roll hero, a heroine fleeing her past, and an unexpected herd of alpacas!
You know I’m a sucker for a herbal, right?
