I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

Caught on Tape

Caught on Tape was a signature feature that I designed to explore how characters from the historical fiction that we all read are portrayed in TV and movies. I try to cover earlier movies to more current so we can see if the way a character is portrayed changes over time and I try to give a video clip (because quite frankly, that's what the whole idea is about).  If I have seen the movie I try to give some commentary about the character in that particular film and if I haven't I will just give my opinions based on what I see in the clip and provide some other reviewer commentary.  And of course I am always looking to hear what you have thought if you have seen any of the featured films or any others that I don't cover.

Here are all of the "episodes" of Caught of Tape - hosted here at The Maiden's Court. Be sure to check them out and I know your movie list will grow!
