Bibliovore (great name) at Confessions of a Bibliovore noted that Donna Freitas, visiting professor of religion at Boston U. and YA author, published a lovely article in the School Library Journal highlighting her favorite “sweet, sexy romances” for the YA reader. While some of her choices I don’t agree with, she singles out some books I missed that are so interesting, I may have to go shopping asap.
Speaking of awesome, the American Library Association has released the 2009 Reading List. Tops of the list in romance: The Spymaster’s Lady’, a book I enjoyed a hell of a lot. [Thanks to SonomaLass for the link.]
Illustrator Joanne Renaud, who contributed some fab pictures to Beyond Heaving Bosoms, wrote an article – and did the cover art! – for Astonishing Adventures magazine. Her article, on “Toga Porn,” or Rome-set pulp novel covers. Cover art? Bring it on! The samples in the magazine are a total scream. They beg to be framed, some of them.
