This is a blog about books, with a focus on my main areas of interest: writing for older children and young adults, books from the first half of the twentieth century, particularly by women, Canadian literature, crime novels and fantasy. On my other blog, Cat Musings, there are still - very occasional - reviews of books to do with the countryside and gardens, and off-topic mutterings on life's little ironies.
Books for review are welcome, but please email me first. I will occasionally agree to host guest posts or author interviews. I don't review self-help books.
Hurlyburlybuss is a new project looking at children's books from 1800 to the present, mainly, but by no means exclusively, fantasy for older children. If it catches my attention, I'll review it! The review policy is the same as for GeraniumCat's Bookshelf.
