Suddenly Sunday

Since The Sunday Salon is closed to new members, I have created own weekly event of Suddenly Sunday! Feel free to join in the fun, just link back to this blog :)

Another week has flown by, but at least I feel that I have accomplished a lot in my reading this past week! I was able to post two reviews this week:

There are so many exciting historical fiction novels just recently released and coming up in the next couple weeks; and I'm happy to be able to review a lot of them for you! I have just finished reading The Secret of the Glass by Donna Russo Morin and The Scarlet Lion by Elizabeth Chadwick; their reviews should be up sometime this week. Now, after waiting for what seems like forever, I am starting The Stolen Crown by Susan Higginbotham :)

Be sure to watch or set your DVR to record "The 39 Steps" on Masterpiece Classic tonight (2/28) at 9:00 PM! Here is the Synopsis from Masterpiece Classic:
Newly returned to England on the eve of World War I, Richard Hannay's (Rupert Penry-Jones, Persuasion) listless London life is about to spiral out of control. When a neighbor bursts in with a top-secret notebook full of cryptic codes and a frantic story of an impending assassination, unlikely patriot Hannay is soon on the run to save himself and his country. He bumps into feisty suffragette Victoria Sinclair (Lydia Leonard), and while their fates may be intertwined, their personalities aren't. But like it or not, they'll together navigate murder, betrayal and near death in order to untangle a plot of national importance, and understand the charms and challenges of human nature. A bracing and romantic thriller,The 39 Steps is based on the novel by John Buchan. (One episode; 90 minutes.

I have really been enjoying HFBRT's week long event for The Secret of the Glass by Donna Russo Morin; they have had some great creative posts and interviews!
