Reviews done and posted on the blog

This month, my goal was to discover the subgenre of historical romance and i can say it was a success, i 've read 10books mostly in french though but my health being not well it was the best solution if i wanted to complete my goal. It's not my favorite genre but i found some great authors and series i want to follow.
I also did as small exception and read one steampunk romance to change my mind.
