Sunday Salon

Bonjour! Welcome to the Sunday Salon! I hope this Sunday finds everyone well. It's a gorgeous day here in Atlanta, my chores are done and I'm watching some hockey! Lil' Passages has her bff over, so that makes two tweens in one house...thank the Lord for Wii and headphones!!

I did some updating this week on the blog: added shortcuts to reviews and interviews, added some really wonderful blogs to the blogroll...if you see one you don't know, do yourself a favor and click on won't be sorry. I also added more HF authors that you should check out. I just surpassed 10,000 page views and am really stoked about that! I'd like to thank all of you that visit and comment...I never thought this would be so much fun and it wouldn't be without you all!

At the moment I am reading I, Elizabeth by Rosalind Miles and enjoying it very much! Could very well be the best novel I've read on her, although I haven't gotten my hands on the infamous Legacy by Susan Kay yet, which I've heard is THE book to read on Elizabeth I.

I've got some really cool interviews coming up here at Passages that I'm pretty excited about! C.W. Gortner, Vanora Bennett, Jules Watson, Elizabeth Chadwick and maybe Sandra Gulland.

There are some giveaways in the future: C.W. Gortner's The Last Queen and Sandra Gulland's Mistress of the Sun.

And last, but not least, here are some of the book reviews that are in the pipeline: Daphne DuMaurier's Frenchman's Creek and My Cousin Rachel, Gulland's Mistress of the Sun, Christine Blevin's The Tory Widow, Margaret Campbell Barnes' The King's Fool, Susan Higginbotham's The Traitor's Wife and Vanora Bennett's Figures in Silk.

Here's your funny for the week! Enjoy!

More Sunday Salon.


  1. I really didn't care for Miles' I, Elizabeth. But then I didn't like the first book in her series on Guinevere either. There must just be something about her writing style that turns me off.

  2. I, Elizabeth sounds good and so does Legacy. I'll have to give both books a try as I'm reading more historical fiction lately. Thanks!

  3. Thanks for the updates, and the new look is great ;) I am looking forward to the interviews, and the Review on Figures in Silk.. I need to get that one too..

  4. I like your new look, too. That poster is great!

  5. I read another Vanora Bennett last year, it was the story of Thomas More's stepdaughter, I can't remember the title but it was good.
    Love the kitty pic.

  6. Amy, I always enjoy your posts! I'm planning on reading Elizabeth also...
    Have a wonderful week!

  7. Both I, Elizabeth and Legacy sounds great. Can't wait to read your interviews.

  8. I've been wanting to read I, Elizabeth so I'm glad to hear it's good. I haven't even heard of Legacy, so I'm adding it to my TBR list!

  9. I can't wait to read your review of I, Elizabeth to see if it's something I might like.

    Regarding the cat and dog photo at the end - my yellow lab has always been terrified of our cat, even when the cat was a kitten. It's pretty funny to watch our cat chase the dog around the house. :)
