Top Ten Tuesdays is a fun meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we share our excitement for books – either upcoming books or as this week, books we have resolved to reading soon, because we own them already or because they’re part of a series and we just can’t wait. So without further ado: the Top Ten books I have resolved to read in 2013:

Review: A Most Scandalous Proposal – Ashlyn Macnamara

Review: A Most Scandalous Proposal – Ashlyn Macnamara

*I received a free ARC of this book from Random House Publishing via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* A Most Scandalous Proposal is a debut novel, and it is quite well done! I loved that Julia is a strong woman, even while dealing with the ton and everything that women have to be careful about while navigating society. Sophia starts out like the typical woman in a historical romance novel, always trying to follow the rules, while being in love with the ton’s golden boy, and not knowing what to do about it – because in order to be a proper young lady, there really isn’t much she can do, now, is there? Julia has decided that love […]

Exam revisions – no reviews

Exam revisions – no reviews

This week will be spent mainly on revising for my big Old English exam this Thursday. I have to be able to do a translation from Old English to modern English, decline verbs and nouns correctly in their paradigms (don’t worry, I had no idea what a paradigm was before I started this class!) and recognize vowel and consonant changes, as well as knowing the historical and literary background for a lot of medieval texts. I had thought that I would be able to prepare some reviews in advance, but Christmas preparations, family stuff and other real life things happened, so there won’t be any reviews this week. I hope that won’t mean I will be blogging only for myself […]

Top Ten Tuesday (#3) – Top ten new-to-me-authors read in 2012

We are fast approaching the end of the year 2012 (and who knows – maybe even the end of the world :O)  Top Ten Tuesdays is a fun meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we share our excitement for books – either upcoming books or as this week, favorite books I’ve read by authors whose books I hadn’t read before. So without further ado: the Top Ten books by authors that were new to me and that I was most impressed by in 2012:
