Sky Full of Stars, Lindsay Buroker, (or what to read now you have finally accepted there is no more Firefly… Le Sigh)
So Wendy, the (I am sure) almost omnipotent and (completely) awesome Super Librarian has Favourite Trope as a TBR Challenge for this month. And I have a trope that is … Continue reading Sky Full of Stars, Lindsay Buroker, (or what to read now you have finally accepted there is no more Firefly… Le Sigh)

Sara Seale (or, in support of the comfort read…)
Not that it really needs defending….but I was having a discussion/argument/wild gesticulating raised voice conversation the other day with a nice-but-snobby-reading-friend (you know you’re not destined to be kindred spirits when someone refers to Anne-with-an-e as ‘that carrot-haired girl with plaits right?’)
The Tuesday Night Club, Agatha Christie (or the only bookclub I really want to join…)
With the horror that is The Holidays (we capitalise it in our family) receding firmly into the past, I am once again ready to face the world…And this month’s TBR challenge (Bless Wendy of the Super-Librarian fame and her smart January Selection-ing) was Short Shorts.
My Short Shorts came in the form of the venerable Ms Christie’s Miss Marple Complete Short Stories
The Bird and The Sword, Amy Harmon (Or The Little Mermaid & Escapism Reading as a Coping Mechanism…)
Hello my lovelies!
Belated New Year Greetings.
My New Year was spent quietly drinking away the trauma of The Holiday Season – it was lovely. (The drinking, not the Season (!))
Emily Climbs, L M Montgomery (or Valancy is lazy + but this is also TOTALLY a historical…)
So this months TBR Challenge (from Wendy the peerless and diamond-like Librarian) was Historical.
I am behind (Like the white rabbit, sans the pocket watch, because mine died years ago..) and Emily Climbs fulfils both my I-am-going-to-read-a-montgomery-a-month, and the TBR Challenge that I have been feeling slightly desperately about.
Artistic License, Elle Pierson, (or New Magic Unicorn Author and Most Epic of Nerd Flails.)
I am just going to be completely honest here and tell you that this should be in NO way considered a thoughtful and impartial critique of a book.
Project Montgomery: Emily of New Moon (or I want a cat named Saucy Sal too…)
The framing and lens of childhood is a peculiarly unique thing. Thoughts, experiences and world views are constrained by a lack of knowing and conditioned by only a few powerful influences.
Night Magic, Midnight & Wild Orchids, Karen Robards, (or my rare-magical-unicorn-author scale…)
Everyone reads differently. Right? Some fast; some slow; some not all (and we pity those poor uninformed uni-bots masquerading as people…).
Dixie Browning, (or how Valancy blatantly, unrepentantly over-used brackets in this post…)
TBR CHALLENGE: MARCH 2016
It’s been a little while since I posted…IRL has been NUTS – and I’ve missed posting and commenting and friendly-stalking pretty blogs (or is that something only I do…?)
A Company of Swans, Eva Ibbotson (or The Archive of the Dis-Remembered…)
Isn’t funny how books slip through your memories? When you are first discovering them, reading them and subsequently being enchanted by them, you think you are NEVER going to forget … Continue reading A Company of Swans, Eva Ibbotson (or The Archive of the Dis-Remembered…)
