Why I'm Interested:  

I love historical fiction! I always shoved this genre to the side in favor of fantasy and paranormal, but I rekindled my love of historical fiction in 2013 and I'm hoping to continue in 2014. I also went on a buying spree and brought home a whole bunch of historical fiction books that I don't want to leave unread for years.

It's all about friendly conversation here at Small Review :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Be sure to check back again because I do make every effort to reply to your comments here.

Because I am absolutely terrible about following through with blog awards, I can't in good conscience accept any more. Thank you very much for thinking of me though!
