Over the past few days I've been putting together an analysis of the historical novels for adults covered in the last year's worth of the Historical Novels Review -- which is 911 titles in all. The magazine organizes its reviews primarily by century. Which centuries and eras were the most popular? Jump on over to the Historical Novel Society website to see the results... they may surprise you. Do the time periods that publishers are offering reflect what you like to read?
Also, as more fall catalogs appear, I've been adding titles to the HNS's list of forthcoming books for 2013.
It's going to be a slow weekend here, which is fine by me. I'm halfway through Tanis Rideout's Above All Things and hope to have a review up soon. Other than that, I'm working on getting an entry ready for my campus's annual Edible Book Festival on Monday. I'm not convinced it will win a prize, but it's worth a shot!
