About the Book Blog

     Hello, and welcome to my blog!

      Most of history is told from a male's perspective. My intent of this blog is to show history from a different perspective, a woman's. These books that I am going to review are about women in historical eras. These are both nonfiction and fiction and can fit into any genre: historical, YA, mystery, fantasy, etc.


     It took me a week to create this blog. I would like to thank my parents for helping me and for their encouragement.


     I would also like to thank my friend and computer wiz, Allen, for putting this blog up on the website. Without his help, this blog would most likely not be up right now for I do not understand computer software. I greatly appreciate his availability and kindness to help me.


     Last, but not least, I would like to thank those who visited my website. So enjoy my blog! I'll be updating consistently! :)

  5. Hello. My name is Cheryl Potts and I write historical fiction (yet to be published). As part of my platform, I am working on a blog, basically about my process and how it ties in with the research I need to do. Going to blogs about history, HF, and the craft of writing take up a lot of my time. I love your blog and would like to cite it. Not simply list it, but why I like it. Do not know if you need to know this, or if this is just a heads-up.

The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post by Allison Pataki: A Book Review

The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post Author: Allison Pataki Genre: Historical Fiction Publisher: Ballantine Release Date: February 15, 2022 Pages: 381 Source: Netgalley/Publisher in exchange for an honest review. Synopsis: Mrs. Post, the President and First Lady are here to see you. . . . So begins another average evening for Marjorie Merriweather Post. Presidents have come and gone, but she has hosted them all. Growing up in the modest farmlands of Battle Creek, Michigan, Marjorie was inspired by a few simple rules: always think for yourself, never take success for granted, and work hard—even when deemed American royalty, even while covered in imperial diamonds. Marjorie had an insatiable drive to live and love and to give more than she got. From crawling through Moscow warehouses to rescue the Tsar’s treasures to outrunning the Nazis in London, from serving the homeless of the Great Depression to entertaining Roosevelts, Kennedys, and Hollywood’s biggest stars, Marjorie Merriweath

Interview with Ezra Harker Shaw

     Today, I have the pleasure of interviewing Ezra Harker Shaw. Ezra Harker Shaw is the author of the upcoming novel, The Aziola's Cry , which will be released on May 7, 2024.   Ezra Harker Shaw gives us insights into the lives of two legendary figures, Percy and Mary Shelley. These two lovers lived a life of literature and love while being on the run from a world that has often misunderstood them! Thank you, Ezra Harker Shaw! What drew your interest in the love story of Mary and Percy Shelley? When I was about sixteen years old, I lived in Dublin. I'd dropped out of school and I was drifting without any real direction in my life. I used to wander down Nassau street in the mornings on my way to the internet cafe where I would write to my friends and work on stories. There was a lovely little bookshop I often used to pop into, and one day, quite on a whim, I bought a thin Dover Thrift edition of Percy Shelley's poems for 2€.  Over the years I kept dipping into it: I
