Historical:

  1. https://rosieamber.wordpress.com/2018/05/05/rosies-bookreview-team-rbrt-tudor-histfic-mary-tudor-princess-by-tonyriches/ He keeps enough information in the story line so we understand the period and the political tensions of the time. Historical fiction is a wonderful way to learn more about a period without labouring through text books and I felt better informed about Mary Tudor after reading MARY. It was easy to read and thoroughly enjoyable.

  3. http://litworldinterviews.com/2018/05/02/ftthum-bookreview-the-amorous-heart-by-marilyn-yalom/ As the title suggests, this is a book about the history of love, and so much more.

 

Scary:

  3. https://michellemuto.wordpress.com/2018/05/03/witches-night-book-promo-and-a-list-of-shows-and-books-with-witches/ So with my love for witches, it’s no surprise that I’ve written a book—my first, actually—that is about witches. THE BOOK OF LOST SOULS is available for a free download for a VERY short time as part of a promo.
