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. Happy reading!
Let's start this week's round-up with a list. Vulture features a number of new releases set in place sealed off from the outside world. This is always an inherently creepy premise and I'm very curious to read a few of the books on the list, in particular The Hunting Party and No Exit.
Locked-Room Mysteries Are Back
A favorite author of historical mysteries, Rhys Owen, has contributed a piece to CrimeReads, discussing fiction of World War I. As someone who has read a lot about this time and whose own books are set in the war's aftermath, I felt this was an engaging read with some great recommendations.
The Fictions of World War I
For the literary traveler, The Lit Hub has rounded up a list of some of the best specialty bookstores worth visiting. Don't Artazart, The Mysterious Bookshop and The Second Shelf sound inviting? I would add Daunt in London as well!
