Things that just make my day...

1. Finding out that Robin McKinley has a new book coming out in September (the 20th to be exact). It's been four long years since Sunshine came out and I realize I've developed a twitch, which I assume will not go away until I get my hands on this book. This Dragonhaven. *twitch*

2. Finding out that not only does Ellen Emerson White have a new book coming out in October (the 30th to be exact), but Susan McCallister (from Friends for Life) is a major character in it. And, Beverly Johnson (from Life Without Friends) makes an "off-screen" appearance. How much do I love it when authors cross over their characters? So. Much.

3. Finding out that Juliet Marillier's next book is going to be a Sevenwaters book. Yep, you heard me right Liza. It follows one of Sean and Aisling's daughters, Clodagh I believe. Too much to hope for glimpses of Liadan and Bran? I think not. And now a moment of silence for the awesomeness of a new Sevenwaters book. ----- The anticipation may actually kill me, but it will be a sweet death.

4. Finding all three of these things out in the space of a week? Priceless.

Angie's Best Books of 2020

 It is the last day of the year. Of this year specifically. "Well done," is all have to say if you're reading this. Well done, you. It's been quiet for awhile now around these parts. For obvious reasons. But I've been reading continuously and ever so gratefully. I have felt such a profound sense of gratitude this year for all of the creators in this world who have been tirelessly and so lovingly creating art for all of us. We have needed it so much. I have needed it so much. And this year of all years, the creation of art has felt like such a fierce act of love. So thank you. And so here I leave my best books of the year. My list stands at fourteen titles. And that feels just right. photo by @aamith (in the order in which I read them) A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane Slippery Creatures by K.J.

Review | To Sir Phillip, With Love by Julia Quinn

The first book to make it onto my best books I've read so far this year list was actually a surprise. Thanks to Bridgerton's massive success, Julia Quinn's name is everywhere these days. And I'm chuffed about the whole thing. That said, my Quinn reading up to this point has been sporadic at best. And I'd only read two novels in the actual Bridgerton series. So I decided to rectify that at the beginning of the year by starting with Eloise's story (the fifth in the series) because she is my uncontested favorite of the siblings. I had no idea what her story held, but I knew she would be a compelling lead. I also love the title and the role that letters play in the story.   Eloise Bridgerton is tired of everything. She is tired of the endless inane whirl of life among the ton. She is tired of being paraded around and forced to dance and converse with all the wrong men. But most of all she is tired of being suddenly and unexpectedly alone after her best friend Penelo
