January Reading/Blogging Wrap-up

2016 is not starting out very well for my reading habits. I only managed to read 1 book in January! I’ve been distracted by a bunch of other things, so I guess it’s understandable, but it’s a little disheartening. Hopefully February will be better.

What I Read:

Licence to Quill by Jacopo della Quercia – This is a book I missed out on last year but then was lucky enough to snag an ARC from one of my sources at the beginning of the month. I just had to promise to send them a short review with some suggestions for related reading. Who knows… this book could end up in bookstore displays all across Canada because of me!

Synopsis: A page-turning James Bond-esque spy thriller starring William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe during history’s real life Gunpowder Plot. The story follows the fascinating golden age of English espionage, the tumultuous cold war gripping post-Reformation Europe, the cloak-and-dagger politics of Shakespeare’s England, and lastly, the mysterious origins of the Bard’s most haunting play: Macbeth.

What I Blogged About:

Since I wasn’t reading, you might be surprised to know that I managed to blog about a lot of stuff…
