Unusual Historicals: Best Bets for Dec. 2018

I’ve been a collection development librarian long enough to tell you that publishing in December is traditionally a dead zone.  You’d think that would have changed somewhat with the mainstreaming of self-publishing, but not really. Things still seem to bunch up around the fall and spring months of the calendar.  But I can always count on my old friend Harlequin Historical and there’s two westerns this month that are prodding me to take a closer look.

I love the ease of digital reading and online shopping, but when it comes to browsing I still struggle with missing the experience that brick and mortar retailers provide.  Case in point, looking for historical romances published in November 2018 on The ‘Zon netted me a bunch of books with half naked women on the covers with “Daddy” in the title.  Um, not what I’m looking for - thanks for that Amazon. Anyway, in between the combination of averting and rolling my eyes, I did uncover some intriguing sounding historicals - none of which had “Daddy” in the title.

I can hardly believe it, but this month I surpassed my reading totals from 2017.  Don’t ask me how, because I feel like I’m currently mired in a hopeless slump. If it weren’t for audiobooks keeping me engaged during my daily commute I’d be in an even sadder state.  And that’s just, well, sad.  But even with the slump that still hasn’t kept me from browsing for new off-the-beaten path historicals.  Something other than Regency and Almack’s horrible lemonade.

Unusual Historicals: Best Bets for Sept. 2018

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.

Unusual Historicals: Best Bets for August 2018

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!
