Hello Everyone!

Post by HistoricallyObsessed » Tue August 4th, 2009, 7:58 am

Just joined and I am still getting a feel for around here. I really like what I have seen so far. I am really excited to meet other people who like the things I like.

My nickname is Lizzy I started my blog in March of this year because I began obsessively read historical fiction novels. I really wanted to be able to share what I thought about my readings. I got tired of my husband acting like he was listening to me, but hey at least he tries.

I tend to keep my book reviews within England and France but will throw in a few random books that are appealing. I defiantly do not have a certain time period. I like to write about "Today in History" and feature a piece of art every Sunday on "Sunday's Art". I am also an artist and I have been posting my art work on my blog lately, Lettice Knolly's, Joan of Kent, and Nefertiti.

If you want to come and check me out here is my blog it has everything my list of reviews, favorite books, upcoming releases, & my first contest will be coming up in September Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran.
