Today on Armchair BEA is interview day. Since I didn’t get signed up in time I won’t be interviewing any bloggers but I am going to take the time to highlight some awesome book blogs and give you some reasons to go and check them out!
Tanzanite’s Castle Full of Books
One of the things that I love about this blog is the Weekly Wishlist feature. This post features historical fiction and historical non-fiction that is upcoming to be released. I have added so many books to my wishlist from reading this post series. Along similar lines, she also hosts a New This Week feature that tells you books that are being release during the next week.
This is a relatively new to me book blog. This blog features a majority of historical and literary fiction but also dabbles with other genres as well. One of the things that I like about this blog is the way the reviews are formatted. They cover a little bit of everything including: one sentence summary, book cover commentary, similar authors, first line, and most importantly (in my opinion) buy, borrow or avoid. In these reviews you will likely find just the information you were looking for.
I love to read this blog when I need a dose of something a little different. If you want to know about historical costuming – this is a good stop. Rowenna frequently posts about her sewing projects (many of which are historically based) and you get to see how it all comes together. I also love hearing about the reenactments that she takes part in. Talk about living history!
Lights, Camera, History
This blog focuses on period dramas on the screen. They feature films that are being released all over the world and in various languages. This is a good place to go if you want to find out about upcoming historical releases. They frequently also have movie trailers too.
Reading the Past
You can always find something interesting here. A librarian by trade, this blogger has also written two books that are a guide to the historical fiction genre. I love to read the interviews that are hosted at this blog because the questions are always top notch. And if you have any questions about Historical Novel Society, this is one of the people to ask!
These are just a few of the blogs that I love to read. Hope you find a few that might be new to you!
