Today is the release day for the gorgeous The Ten Thousand Doors of January, and I’m still mulling over how best to put into words the utter heartfelt beauty of this wonderful book…
Though it may seem as though I tend more heavily to the fantastic or romantic in my reading tastes, I also very much enjoy a well-drawn historical novel that focuses on the history itself, so I’m excited to be helping to open the blog tour for Rachel Halliburton’s The Optickal Illusion!
You know I jump at the chance to review Mills and Boon/Harlequin’s historical romance, so I was intrigued by Reclaimed by her Rebel Knight, as I don’t think I’ve read one set in the 13th century before! It turned out to be a lovely character-driven read that showcases a far more gentle and caring relationship than the title might suggest…
Okay, so this ticks two of my major reading boxes – Regency romance with magic, and Garth Nix! I’ve been a fan since Sabriel, so this was a must-read for me, and it more than lived up to my expectations!
Ah, Mills and Boon are back with another extremely literal title! This is a really great example of a Regency romance with a marriage of convenience – it really impressed me with its depth of character and sweetness.
How could you resist that title?! We all know I’m a sucker for a Regency romance, especially if it involves Scotsmen, so this was a must-read for me!
Living in Oxford, you can’t help but be beset by CS Lewis facts and stories all the time. Somehow, though, I didn’t know anything about the woman that became his wife, the poet Joy Davidman, and so I was very intrigued to read her story – but I wasn’t expecting this book to have so much of an impact on me!
