I did it again! I missed last week’s phobia. I’ll blame it on how much driving I’ve been doing, and no one will be the wiser, eh?

No, last week was just incredibly busy. Just expect two POW’s this week, and I’ll get back on track soon!

Tapinophobia: This phobia refers to the fear of being contagious.

Awww, that would be so sweet…if it wasn’t so weird.

Please stop by It’s a Wonderful Fiction for a review on the book To Die For: A Novel of Anne Boleyn.

To Die For is the story of Meg Wyatt; trusted confidante and childhood friend to the infamous Anne Boleyn. As Anne rises to power, she makes Meg the mistress of her wardrobe. However, Meg is about to be charged with caring for far more than just clothes: she may become the caretaker of Anne’s very life. In the cruel and fickle court of King Henry the VIII, Meg soon learns the cost of loyalty may come at a higher price than anyone ever imagined.

Add to that an impossible romance fraught with rich but unloved suitors, and you have on your hands a terrific story.

It was a tremendous read, and is now one of my personal favorites. If you love historical fiction, you won’t want to miss this one!
