Book Titles, Jazz, and the Circus!

Book Titles, Jazz, and the Circus!

So, Christian fiction fans got some very exciting news yesterday. One of my favourite authors, Kristy Cambron, revealed the title of her next book along with the inspiration board from Pinterest. The title is- "The Ringmaster's Wife". The moment I read the title I was immediately intrigued and became uber excited for it's release, which is June 2016!! The story is set in the Jazz Age and in honour of the title release I want to share some of my favourite things from the Jazz Era.


First of all, Jazz is one of my favourite musical genres and below are a few of favourite songs and artists from that period.

The Boswell Sisters were a very well known singing group in the 1920's and 1930's. The song is one of my favourites, "It Don't Mean A Thing".

This song, "Basin Street Blues" is a duet by Connie Boswell, who was a former member of the above group "The Boswell Sisters", and the ever wonderful Bing Crosby. FUN FACT: Bing Crosby loved working with Connie because she was such a sweet and lovely girl.

Another favourite tune is "Lullaby of the Leaves" also by Connie Boswell. Can you tell I'm a fan of Connie Boswell?!


Who doesn't love the fashion from the Jazz Age!? Personally, I am quite biased towards these dresses, but I do love the outfit in the last photo. The top and pants combo is really cute!

Well, this is all I have for you guys today. I really enjoyed creating this post and quite possibly making this a series here on my blog. What do you guys think? Should I continue this as a series? Let me know in the comments below.
