The ABCs of Yoga for Kids (NetGalley copy supplied by the publisher), 3 stars
Feathered (ARC supplied by the publisher), 4 stars

Dear Daughter Once again, 2.5 stars, forced to round up to 3
First Comes Love (ARC supplied by the publisher), 4 stars
Eeny Meeny, 2.5 stars, rounded up to 3, blah blah blah

Received 10 author/publisher supplied ARCs – physical copies, not eReader versions.
Discovered how much I enjoy what I’m dubbing “history’s mysteries”, specifically, mysteries that takes place inside a historical fiction novel — particularly those set in Victorian England. Haven’t quite taken the plunge to the Sherlock Holmes side of that sub-genre, but maybe soon? You never know as, previously, the idea of reading a mystery where modern forensics and DNA were nonexistent was a nonstarter in my mind.
Many thanks to all the publishers/authors who supplied copies of their books for review! Interested in me reviewing your book, on either here or Goodreads or both? Get in touch with me at shelfishbehavior at gmail dot com, send me a brief synopsis (or link to the book on Goodreads/Amazon), and I’ll see if your title looks like something in my wheelhouse.
