Five Things for Friday

Welcome to Friday, and Good Friday as well, if you celebrate Easter. Have a blessed weekend and may all your eggs be chocolate.

In the meantime, here a Five Things to start off your weekend with a smile and a bit of joy.

One

Have you seen these Miniature Book Nooks? I had no idea they were a thing until Susanna Kearsley starting making one and asked me order a painting for her because the maker would not ship to Canada.

Imagine me listening to her, “yes, yes, you want me to order a tiny painting for your character’s … Read more »

Five Things for Friday

One

Do you like rooting for the little guy? Here is the video for you. In Penguin v. the Orcas, our hero is a plunky little penguin who finds itself being chased all over by a band of orcas, and finds a way to escape that is a delight. Enjoy.

Two

When new shows arrive, I always get excited because I love good mystery shows but not police dramas. Shows like, Person of Interest, or The Pretender. The Equalizer, with Queen Latifah in the starring role checks all the boxes. Cool, savvy heroine? Check. Nerdy tech? Check. People … Read more »

Five Things For Friday + A Live Event Today

So, I’ve been absent for a bit. From my heart, I’ve missed all of you.

First it was the holidays, and then it was January. And then I had foot surgery. And now, I am finally walking again–hurrah!!–and ready to get back to sending out newsletters once more.

And thank you to everyone who has written in the meantime to politely ask me to get going again. And a special thanks to those who nagged. You know who you are and you are loved. ;)

Coming back here is also out of a sense that we are all struggling as we … Read more »

Release Day Read: The Huntress

I got the privilege of reading an advanced copy of Kate Quinn’s exquisite new historical fiction, The Huntress. You might recall, I raved about her previous book, The Alice Network in a December post about incredible books to give as gifts.

Now I get to rave about The Huntress.

The story revolves around a pair (soon to be trio) of Nazi hunters chasing after a murderess who has disappeared into the ether after committing heinous crimes in the waning days of WWII. The trio of stories weave together a thrilling and poignant story of war, loss, and finding … Read more »

July Reading Roundup

I’ve been on a reading binge–anything and everything. As you’ve probably noticed, I don’t read just one type of book, I read all over the place. I always have. And my July reads were no different as evidenced by these four very unique stories.

Looking for something new? Have you read:

Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews

How is it that I missed this series the first time around? I should be pointing fingers at all my friends who didn’t insist that I READ the Kate Daniels series, starting with the first book, Magic Bites, but apparently now is my turn … Read more »

Friday Reads: Read and TBR

This week I finally got the time to sit down and read. My reading time is so precious, and I don’t get enough of it. Sadly, I hear this lament from many writers. But no complaints this week, because I scored the perfect book.

Bellewether

Susanna Kearsley’s new book, Bellewether, is all that and more. It helped that I was in Canada last week and was able to pick up a hard copy of the book–Sorry, US readers, our edition doesn’t come out until August 7th.

I’ve come to the realization that I am not an ebook person. I … Read more »
