It's Follow Friday! #9 and Blog Hop #6

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and the question of the week is:
Do you have an under-noticed author that you think we should all know about?

So, as you may (or might not) know, I'm really big on historical fiction and I love mysteries with a female lead. Because of this, I'd have to say that if you don't know about Deanna Raybourn's Lady Julia Grey series (mystery) or The Dead Travel Fast (not a part of the Lady Julia Grey series), you might want to check them out. Another mystery/Victorian era writer is Tasha Alexander with her Lady Emily series.

Book Blogger Hop

Blog Hop is hosted by Crazy for Books and the question of the week is:
What is the thing you like most about reading book blogs? Is it the reviews, author guest posts, articles, giveaways, or something else entirely?
If I'm perfectly honest, it's a combination of everything mentioned above as well as the voice/writing style of the book blogger. I love the variety of opinions as well as author interviews, giveaways, and other book related news.

In other news, my ALA Midwinter registration badge came in the mail this week! :) If you happen to be going, I shall--hopefully--see you there in January!


  1. I will definitely consider Deanna if I'm ever in the mood for a mystery, or if someone asks me for a mystery recommendation heh~~
