Good morning! The first week of February has come and gone and I am completely in shock that I'm 3 books ahead of schedule for my reading goal on goodreads.com. I know a lot of you participate in that challenge, but how lofty are your goals and do you usually meet them? I have to admit I usually fall short of mine, but thanks to my increasing cushion, I am sure I can reach my goal this time. We thankfully got a bit of rain the other day, but I fear we've already started another dry spell. For any of you who are on the east coast and facing the wrath of Nemo, I pray you and your loved ones are warm and safe. 

An Announcement: 
For those of you who know my pursuits in life you are well aware that I am an aspiring author. Over the past few years I have been meddling in different genres and eras of history, but it wasn't until recently I became more vocal about my passion for writing. I did not want to mix my personal ramblings on writing with my historical fiction blog, so a couple of weeks ago I created a separate blog and twitter account that will be dedicated to my writing journey. If you are interested in writing, or just curious about what I am up to, I would love to have you stop by; the blog is titled The Pen and Plume, and my twitter handle is @SveaLove. Now, I assure you, The Muse in the Fog Book Review is not going to be set aside in the slightest, bringing you the latest and greatest in historical fiction is, along with writing, my passion! 


This week I reviewed:

Other Posts:

I just finished The Aviator's Wife by Melanie Benjamin and should have that post up on Wednesday, followed by a review of The Second Empress by Michelle Moran on Friday.

I'm currently reading Mistress of my Fate by Hallie Rubenhold, and Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel.



Have a great week and happy reading!

Good luck to you as you pursue your writing dreams. I enjoy writing, but find that when I have free time I turn to reading instead. I really need to devote time to writing, as penning a novel is a dream of mine. I'll definitely check out your new blog.

The Suddenly Sunday linky doesn't appear to be accepting links, so here is my Suddenly Sunday post: http://confessionsavidreader.blogspot.ca/2013/02/suddenly-sunday_10.html

Congrats on your writing goals =) I haven't quite gotten there yet, but I have some fun ideas going around in my head for when I'm ready! Good luck with yours!

I will definitely check out your writing blog and follow. I've had a separate writing blog for a while now. I've already started my novel (historical fiction set in 14th century Italy) and I'm hoping to get it written this year, at least the first draft. From one aspiring author to another, I wish you much success in your writing endeavors!
