Oh, so hey - the world is on fire.  I know, it’s been on fire, but instead of singed around the edges I kind of feel like my hair has erupted into an inferno.  It’s been a struggle for me to read for a while now but I’ve hobbled along in large part thanks to audio books and finding comfort reads where I can.  Unfortunately this has not extended to historicals, my first love in the genre. I’m in a historical slump. But I’m nothing if not stubborn. I know this slump will break the minute I sink my teeth into an amazing book - which means it’s time to browse!  Here’s what’s catching my eye for September.

Normally my “sweet spot” for these posts are to find four or five books, preferably published during the month of the blog post, that feature “unusual elements.”  “Unusual” typically takes the form of non-UK settings, “nobody” main characters that aren’t titled, unique professions etc. But when I started looking for titles to feature for August?  Yeah, pickings were slim. So I did what any good librarian does - I whined on Twitter, got some suggestions, did some more investigating and now we have an August Unusual Historicals list!  Huzzah!

I have a love/hate relationship with July.  I love fireworks (well except when my idiot neighbors are still shooting them off on July 14th…), it’s my birthday month, and I’m generally able to attend the Romance Writers of American annual conference (this year held in Denver).  However, it is also my busiest, craziest month at my day job. This entails a lot of time doing math and looking at spreadsheets (yes, it’s just as glamorous as it sounds!). I come home from work mentally exhausted and looking for anyway to unwind.  Which leads us to this latest batch of unusual historicals! Who doesn’t love to unwind reading and browsing for new books?

May 2018 Best Bests: Unusual Historicals

Is there anything worse than a reading slump?  Because, that, my friends is exactly where I’m living these days.  If it weren’t for revisiting some old favorites on audio I’d literally be getting nothing read.  But one thing sure to cheer me up? Browsing for books. Even if, you know, I’m not reading them.  May is kind of quiet when it comes to not-your-usual historicals, but there’s potential all the same.
