Email ALL REVIEW REQUESTS & QUESTIONS to:
When sending me a book review request, PLEASE put something like, Review Request & "Book Title", or something similar to that in the email subject. Don't just put the title of the book, or "Book Review", or something equally simple in the subject or it may get deleted. I get a lot of mail from many different book blogs, so a ton of my mail has subject headings about books!!
Also, in your request email, PLEASE send me:
- a blurb about the book
- the book information if available (page numbers, publisher, etc.)
- the book cover if it is available
- I prefer to read historical fiction, which is why I created a blog named Historical Fiction Obsession! :) I WILL occasionally read books that are not historical fiction, but it really has to catch my eye and does not happen often.
- The era of history that I enjoy the most when reading historical fiction is pretty wide. I LOVE, Love, love books that are related to or have something to do with England's Royalty or those surrounding the royals from the time of King Henry II and Queen Eleanor to King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn...and I suppose the other wives, and Queen Elizabeth as well--and all of the different scandals and affairs of the royals. Books about the common people during those times are great as well. I also like books about Romans, Egyptians, Celts, the Borgia's, Robert the Bruce, The Black Douglas, William Wallace, Scotland's fight for freedom from England, the Wars of the Roses. I'm also interested in books about France's royalty, like the Sun King, Marie Antoinette, the French Revolution, etc. I am not very knowledgeable about Germany, Spain, and some of the other countries, but if the book is before the mid 1800's and looks interesting, I'm willing to give it a try.
- With books that take place in America, I prefer to read mostly about the Civil War. I also like to read about the south and how it was prior to the Civil War, when there were slaves and southern belles. I do not read very many historical fiction novels about the US, but when I do, it's usually about the Civil War, or the south before the civil war began.
- One thing that REALLY draws my attention to a historical fiction novel, and will almost always get me to read it, is if there is some type of romance. Doesn't have to be steamy sex, but I'm a girl, and I like a little romance in my novels.
