The Fort by Bernard Cornwell

Today, I’m linking up with Davida @ The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog for another Throwback Thursday.

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of being the first stop on a Blog Tour for Man of War, the fourth book of T.J. London's American Revolutionary War series, The Rebels and Red Coats Saga.

With this fresh in my mind, it was easy to select which old review to promote today. For this post I'm going back to 2014 when I reviewed Bernard Cornwell's Revolutionary War novel, The Fort.

The story relates the events of The Penobscot Expedition of 1779, when an American armada

Man of War by T.J. London
Guest Post - Blog Tour - Giveaway (US only)

Today, I have the pleasure of being the first stop on the blog tour for T.J. London's recently released novel, Man of War. The author has kindly provided a guest post in which she shares her research into the two main settings of the novel: a Royal Navy warship and the city of New York. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to read Man of War for the blog tour, but after reading about the research that went into it, especially of life on board a Royal Navy man of war, I'm more excited than ever to pick up this book. I hope you enjoy reading the guest post as much as I did.

SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION: From Stasiland to The Pearl of York, Treason and Plot

The first Saturday of the month is time to play Six Degrees of Separation. This meme is hosted by Kate of Books Are My Favourite and Best. The aim is to link six books to each other from the starting point.

This month it is Stasiland by Anna Funder. Once again, I've not read the book we're starting with, but I have read Funder's debut novel All That I Am. It details the rise of Hitler and the Nazis as witnessed by a group of exiled activists which included real life figures, Ernst Toller and Dora Fabian.

My next link takes me to a recent release that I've just finished reading, which also involves the rise of Hitler

THROWBACK THURSDAY: The Unknown Ajax by Georgette Heyer

Today, I’m linking up with Davida @ The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog for Throwback Thursday.

I'm not sure what format my posts will take. Initially, I intend to feature some of my old reviews, but as I have a number of draft reviews going back a few years this may be the ideal opportunity to tweak and finally publish them.

Currently on Twitter there is a Georgette Heyer Readalong featuring The Unknown Ajax, with discussions held on Sundays and Wednesdays. Unfortunately these take place at 7.00 pm UK time which converts to about 5.00 am in my part of Australia. Way too early for me to participate, but I
