Over the last few months, I've had a couple of people request a place for book reviews. Feel free to post any books as you review. Fiction and Non-fiction are welcome. Even if it doesn't necessarily suit the group theme, there are many of us here who read across all genres and are always looking for suggestions. You can post full reviews, or link to your review. If you blog, or bookstagram review, feel free to link to that as well.

I copied all my reviews here: My historical fiction shelf . I also have historical romance and Regency Romance shelves. You won't find any of the New York Times Bestselling Regency Romances on the list though, mainly the old ones and a few contemporary "sweet" Regencies.

I'm on the waiting list for Jane and the Waterloo Map at the library. I enjoyed the previous books in the series.

Tom Maentz | 2 comments The Reign in Spain Fall & Rise of the Spanish Monarchy by W. Kristjan Arnold
Check out a fascinating new historical novel entitled 'The Reign in Spain' by Galician author W. Kristjan Arnold. A very entertaining and educational piece of history about 20th century Spain. Anyone interested in Spain, history, politics, or royalty will enjoy!

Christoph Fromm | 1 comments If you are not faint-hearted I would recommend my historical fiction novel "Stalingrad - The lonliest death".

Throughout the crucial fight for Stalingrad, a battle which claimed two million victims, human tolerance is tested beyond all limits. There is trench warfare, hand-to-hand combat for every single building, hunger and cold. Madness becomes the last place of refuge before death…
In these conditions, young Leutnant von Wetzland is forced to accept he cannot possibly keep up even the most basic of moral standards. And that applies to himself, as well as his men.

If you would like to review it, feel free to contact me - I would love to send you a free review copy!

Mario Johns (Conscious-Mind) | 1 comments Recently finished 17th century spiritual fiction book. A real beauty! Gave it 5 stars!

Natasa Pantovic Nuit

A-Ma Alchemy of Love

Deep profound reading. Fallowing a very interesting story set in the 16th century of Alchemy, magic, Chinese I Jing. The dance of Yin and Yang, rational and intuitive is very obvious within the chapters of the book. A female dreamy approach to life versus a male, an energetic and scientific approach. Ama lives during the scientific revolution of Age of Reason, during the time when missionaries tried to convert Chinese to Christianity finding a rich, advanced, intriguing culture, and philosophical approach to Life and God that is amazingly different from our Western one.

Charles Roberts | 3 comments Hi All,

My name is Charles Roberts and I am the author of the historical fiction "Eden's Gates" a "novel both beautiful and devastating, brutal and uplifting; an honest look at the Civil War-era south that equally presents the horrors of slavery".

I am looking for someone available to make a honest review of my book. Please write me in private if you are interested.

I also invite you to enter Eden's Gates Giveaway here: https://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/sh...

Best regards,
Charles Roberts
