I have a new template, with new header. I couldn’t resist and it’s all this guys fault:
He made me do it. And I am immensely pleased. I mean, he is just, so, ME. Sweat and all.
I finished with The Doctor’s Wife by Mary Elizabeth Braddon late Sunday night. It was…. everything I expect from ME Braddon. I loved loved loved the salaciousness of Lady Audley’s (wicked) Secret and TDW more than lives up to the promise of LAS. Y’all, I might have to put her up there with Wilkie Collins. Seriously. I know, I can’t believe I said that either. But witness this quote:
“…No wise man or woman was ever the worse for reading novels. Novels are only dangerous for those poor foolish girls who read noting else, and think that their lives are to be paraphrases of their favourite books. That girl yonder wouldn’t look at a decent young fellow in a Government office with three hundred a year and the chance of advancement,” said Mr. Smith, pointing to Isabel Sleaford with a backward jerk of his thumb. “SHE’S waiting for a melancholy creature, with a murder on his mind.”
Yes. I hope to post more of my thoughts later this week. I just have to gather them first.
I have the new John Green! Eek! This is why I want to finish TDW. Although, I have always had a hard time with books where someone has cancer, so there is that. Yet, John Green. So.
I’m trying to think how to fit in a weekly (or bi-weekly) post on my crafts. Right now I’m making myself (yes, me) a blanket and I want to show off. Where to put it though…. maybe Sunday?
I just placed my yearly order with BookCloseouts.com for my birthday books. Want to know what I got?
That is all.
