Well well well. Haven't done one of these in awhile! Of course, there are now more and more reviews on Amazon and Goodreads and Librarything to be explored. But for those coming from blogs all across the interwebs, it's nice to have a place where one can browse them all. So here are a bunch of recent reviews, divided by subject:
Women's Historical Fiction gave a Top Pick review of The Master Of Verona here.
The impressive Historical Novel Review has a great one here.
And the wonderfully-titled site Bookish Whimsy has a review of it here.
AmoXcalli has the first review of Colossus up here.
The most fun and delightful reviews have been for this one, which fits as I had the most fun writing it!
Stewartry's is the best, warming the cockles of my cold cold heart. It's here, and includes the line:
"I have to say, this is possibly my favorite fictional version of any person, taking into account every scant aspect of the historical Shakespeare I could think of and a few more, and fabricating a character who … works. He lives and breathes and laughs and loves, and he is utterly believable."
Here's another lovely review at MyShelf.
And here's another favorite review of mine, though it's entirely unfavorable - she says "True to Shakespeare's plays, this tale was filled with crude humor and references." Excellent.
I'll do a round-up of guest posts soon!
