Historical Romance. I don’t usually seek out romance novels, but on occasion, I come across them at second hand stores… and somehow end up walking out with them.
And when I say historical romance, I mean bad, cheesy, historical romance.
I mean full-on gothic, bodice-ripping, cigarette-ads-in-the-middle, 1970s penny-book historical romance.
I mean… Kentucky-Fried historical romance…
Bloggers You Should Check Out Today:
Rag Tag Magpie is doing a Nursery Rhyme Challenge for November, today’s features a young woman pining for her sailor-love in a rhyme that was apparently later co-opted as a campaign jingle. I really love her doodle and crafting style. It just gives off that really neat indie coffee house and knitting club vibe and I don’t know how else to describe it.
Carrie’s Book Reviews is doing a book giveaway for some romance called “Montana Mistletoe”. That’s something I would never pick up. Any romance involving “Montana” or any Christmas reference is a big, fat NOPE from me. I really hate anything with a Christmas theme. It’s my least favorite holiday by far. Also I grew up in Montana and most of those books are written by A. People who have never been to Montana or B. People who have never left Montana and honestly I can’t handle either. But if it’s your thing, hey go sign up. Definitely check out her other reviews esp. if you are into mostly YA, romance, mystery or other light reading.

Terrible progress… although I’ve already gotten farther than I did last year and there’s still quite a bit of the month left. I’ll keep plugging along for the time being. Hoping you all are getting where you want to be on it.
