The Book Journey Begins...

Welcome to my first entry for this end of year! This will be a blog about all that interests me regarding historical fiction. I plan on reviewing books, sharing information, thoughts and discussing anything that's past and royal. If I could also get a book club going that would be fantastic. Let me know if you're interested, I'd love for you to join in and leave me your comments.

So, off with my first entry...Let me begin by saying that it’s only appropriate for me to give Josephine the honor of being mentioned first on this blog. After all, the blog is named after her.

I’m presently on the third of Sandra Gulland’s 'Josephine' books: “The Last Great Dance on Earth”. I’m reveling in this one very slowly as I just don’t want to finish it too quickly. The first two: “The Many Lives and Secret Sorrows of Josephine B.” and, “Tales of Passion, Tales of Woe”, were absolutely divine. Being totally enthralled by the development of events, I devoured these books too fast, only to regret that it was all over way too soon. So now, I vowed I’d take my time to savor ‘The Last Great Dance on Earth’.
I promise to write a review on this book as soon as I’m done reading it. I know that many of you may have already read it, and/or reviewed it- and don’t really need my review to tell you how good the book was, but I still want to give my personal take on it. (Warning though, I may have already passed judgment on this book based on my love for the first two)…Oh, and besides…I feel I owe it to Josephine.
