Special Feature: OUTLANDER Returning to STARZ

For those of you who have followed this blog for a lengthy time, you will know how much I LOVE the Outlander series! It is one of the best series I’ve read and I recommend it to almost everyone I meet who like historic fiction.

So it goes without saying that I have been glued to my TV every Saturday night watching the Starz Outlander series which is based on the books.

Like me, one of my friends, Spencer Blohm, has been eagerly awaiting the return of the series and in anticipation of Outlander’s return, he wrote a wonderful article to get us all excited about Outlander! So sassenachs please enjoy!

Special Feature: Series Review STARZ OUTLANDER

Dinna fash Outlander and Lit Bitch fans, I am posting my review of the series for you!

I toyed with the idea of reviewing each episode in great detail but then decided that a collective review would be better suited to my writing style.

So here you have it, after eight weeks I feel as though I have seen enough to write a review of the series.

Outlander has hands down been one of the most satisfying book series that I have read. And many of you know that I have hosted the Outlander Reading Challenge for a couple of years now…..though I did take this year off I will be bringing it back for the 2015 reading challenge season so be watching!

The first book in the series, Outlander, is hands down a classic. It’s steamy, sexy, historic, reflective, philosophical, romantic, adventurous, and thrilling. There were many many things I loved. So naturally I had high expectations for the STARZ series.

Special Feature: Guest Outlander Review

For those of you who have followed this blog for a lengthy time, you will know how much I LOVE the Outlander series! It is one of the best series I’ve read and I recommend it to almost everyone I meet who like historic fiction.

So it goes without saying that I have been glued to my TV every Saturday night watching the Starz Outlander series which is based on the books. I have been meaning to write a review of the series for quite some time.

I originally planned on writing a review for reach episode, but decided that might be too ambitious for this season….so I think I will write my own review at the end of the season. However for now, one of my friends, Spencer Blohm, asked if I would like to run his review on my blog in the mean time which I clearly agreed to. So sassenachs please enjoy Spencer’s review of the series here!  (more…)

Review: Written in My Own Heart’s Blood (Outlander #8) by Diana Gabaldon

Four long years is how long I’ve been waiting for the latest Outlander installment, Written in My Own Heart’s Blood (MOHB).

The last book (AEITB), left some MAJOR cliff hangers and I was actually pretty upset about the way AEITB ended for at least a week after finishing it.

MOHB picks up right where AEITB ended, literally. I am not going to get too much into the back-story or other books as I am assuming if you are reading this review, you have already read the series up until this point.

I will admit, I should have re-read AEITB before I started this one. I was literally so lost for the first part of the novel.

You can be as active or non active in this challenge as you want to be. The discussion questions will be a new way to keep people actively interested, thinking about, and reading the series.
