Odds & Ends: April 16
- At NPR: Have A Spring Fling With These 3 April Romances. I am HERE for all three of these books, though the cover on the Sabrina Jeffries book is... not ideal. (MAKE HIM STOP STARING AT ME, OMG.)
- For the last few years, my co-worker and I have set Annual Reading Challenges for ourselves and each other. This year, she has tasked me with reading fifty romance novels in ten different categories—I did the same for her, but with fantasy—and I feel that it's time to dig into the Highlander Romance subgenre. I'll probably start with The Highlander's Princess Bride because it's on sale, but if you have recommendations, let me know!
- Then again, maybe I'll back-burner the Scots yet again in favor of another historical romance about a Lady Publisher. Or one about a Regency Detective? Ugh, snow days are so dangerous for my wallet.
- At Stacked: YA Hardback-to-Paperback Cover Makeovers: 5 To Consider. Slap a new cover on Jane, Unlimited, and suddenly I want to read it? Funny how that works.
- At Melville House: 2019 will be a big year for works entering the public domain. "And so when the clock strikes midnight, we’ll all be able to get our grubby little hands on, and even repackage and resell, material like Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway in Bond Street, some of P.G. Wodehouse’s finest work, and, as Ferro points out, “Robert Frost’s New Hampshire, which includes the poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” — a poem that, despite its popularity, has been strictly controlled by his estate up to this point.”"
- At The Booklist Reader: Sisters in Crime Seeks Emerging Writers of Color.
