What's ahead in 2014?  This year it's going to be primarily about romance, and rereading some favourite stories.  I'm not going to give specific clues, but this year I'm hoping to read romances about:

Early feminist activists
More pirates!
...and an Arctic explorer!

Here's hoping I have more chances to read, read, read and review!
