Have you come across The Captive Reader website?  Try http://thecaptivereader.com/about/ .  It contains book reviews by Claire who is “an avid reader from Vancouver, Canada who loves mid-20th Century middlebrow fiction, domestic Victorian novels, volumes of correspondence, gossipy diaries, and almost anything having to do with Jane Austen.”

I went to it because I was looking for reviews of ‘Letters from England’ by Karel  Čapek, a classic piece of travel writing by a great Czech writer visiting Britain in 1924.  Claire reviewed it affectionately at http://thecaptivereader.com/2013/12/01/letters-from-england-karel-capek/

There a several links to other interesting blogs.  Well worth a visit.
