It's Friday, which means it's time for Link Love, where I share some of my favorite bookish articles and blogs from the past week. There are quite a few links I found interesting and worth sharing this week. I hope you find something here you enjoy.
Stylist has rounded up some new books to get excited about in February! The Familiars by Stacey Halls sounds intriguing, though I might be swayed by it's beautiful cover...
Using a real person, especially a famous and/or well-loved author as a character in a work of fiction can be hit or miss, but BookRiot has found a few books with just this premise which do sound rather intriguing! Have you read any of them? The only one I know on this list is The Paris Wife.
I enjoyed this article on CrimeReads, discussing the pleasures found in reading scandalous crime fiction!
Finally, if you're a fellow fan of podcasts and need some book recommendations, or just enjoy bookish chat, here are a few podcasts for you. I listen to Reading Women and would also add The Guardian Book Podcast to the list.
