The Sunday Salon 03.07.10

Happy Sunday!

I've been feeling particularly unmotivated lately. I'm not really in a reading slump, but I'm not particularly excited to read anything. I haven't read anything in a while that has made me think, "Holy crap! This was so good!" It's not a good feeling. I hope it ends soon.

I got a few reviews up last week: Romancing Mister Bridgerton, which is book four in the Bridgerton series by Julia Quinn. This installment is my favorite, thus far. There are four more in the series, but I'm taking a bit of a break as to not have the end of the series come as quickly. I also read a very stunning non fiction account of the happenings of insane asylums in the 19th century: Ten Days in a Mad House by Nellie Bly. It's free to download online. Read it; it will blow your mind.

Speaking of Nellie Bly, I kicked off Women's History Month by doing a profile about her here. I'm doing these profiles every Wednesday this month and I'm really excited about the other fascinating ladies I've got lined up. Stay tuned!

I finished reading The Duke by Gaelen Foley today. I didn't mean to start reading it when I did, but I found myself reading the first few pages and couldn't stop. I enjoyed it and will get a review up about it this week. I also reread Persuasion by Jane Austen. I read it for the first time a few years ago and I think I actually loved it more reading it the second time around.

Oh, and if you didn't catch it, I - after nine months - have properly introduced myself here.

Have a good week!

I keep promising myself to delve into Jane Austen again, since it's been eons!
