When I saw that Natalie Jenner was coming out with a new book I was really excited. Her debut novel, The Jane Austen Society, was good for a first time novel, but now that she’s cut her teeth a bit in historical fiction, it’s time to see how the follow up novel is going to unfold. Finding your voice and rhythm is hard to do but I am looking forward to seeing how this sophomore novel compares to the debut.
I really like the time period—there are a lot of WWII novels in historical fiction but not that many post war novels and I think it will be a fun landscape to explore. And need I say more about the setting than it’s set in a rare bookstore?!
The cover is fantastic, the summary sounds great and I am looking forward to getting to know new characters from Jenner! Keep reading to check out all the details of this book and be sure to get it on your TBR. The only thing I am sad about is that it won’t be out until next spring! Way too long but it gives me something to look forward to this winter!

If you have followed my blog for any length of time you will notice that one genre is particularly lacking and that’s memoirs! I don’t read lot of memoirs/autobiographies/biographies/non-fiction but occasionally one of two pop up on my radar, such as this one!
I read this book in Oct 2019 and really enjoyed it! Liz Phair is the soundtrack of my teenage years so reading her book was such a treat for me and I loved giving into her world and life for a few days of reading! Now her book, Horror Stories, is out in paperback and I thought it would be fun to re-share my original review with you guys!
Liz Phair is such a talented musician and I was thrilled to see that her talents didn’t just stop at music, but crossed over into writing. If you are a fan of her music or simply candid takes on important issues, I think you will really enjoy her story! It’s out in paper back now so be sure to snag yourself a copy!

I have been in the mood for a proper Victorian romance lately! I mean the last 4-6 weeks all I have been reading are murder mysteries and horror so a romance would be a nice little break.
This romance sounds like it’s going to be charming and fun and today I have a lovely excerpt up on my blog to check out!
After reading this little blurb, I can hardly wait to read this one! Sadly I couldn’t fit it in for the upcoming tour as a review, but I am going to read it all the same and will be posting a review here soon but for now be sure to check out this lovely book!

When HBO picked up this book to turn into a series, I was thrilled! I didn’t know anything about the book or the author but I know that HBO always turns out well done series so when I saw the previews for this one, I couldn’t wait.
I also have been getting more and more into the horror genre and when I was approached to do a feature and interview with the author before the HBO series released, I was intrigued and immediately said yes.
After doing the interview and reading more about Lovecraft Country, I decided to wait and watch the HBO series in favor of reading the book first so that I could then watch the series and enjoy it without it ruining anything.

This love story is based on a true story and I couldn’t be more excited about that! I love romanced but when they are based on a true story I always have a more special connection with the characters.
The other things that caught my eye about this one were the setting, time period and the fact that one of the characters is Cherokee. All of these things together made it sounds like it was going to be a different sort of historical fiction and while I couldn’t fit it on my review schedule, I was thrilled to hear about it.
Not only does this book sound like a different love story but it has also been getting rave reviews from readers! I am so excited to share a little about this one with you guys today and I hope you check it out and let me know what you think as this one sounds wonderful!
