Introduction

Heather, 26, USA. Hi everyone!  I started my blog, The Maiden's Court in May 2009 as a creative outlet for my reading and it has completely taken me to new places.  I love sharing my reading and the things that I learn.

On my blog you will find reviews of historical fiction books, historical movie reviews, and interesting historical content among other things. If you would like to know more about me, check out the About Me. Feel free to email me at any time at dolleygurl@hotmail.com.

Attention Authors, Publishers, Blog Tour Organizers! I would love to hear from you if you have a book that you would like for me to review. Check out my review policy and then contact me with the pitch.
