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.

  2. I know! I was afraid she was done with that world for good. I am SO glad she's returning to it.

Angie's Best Books of 2016

Let's just lay our cards on the table, shall we, and agree that, on the whole, 2016 was an abysmal year.
And I'd just like to personally invite it not to let the door hit it on the way out.
This is me being as charitable as I can possibly be at this point. 
That said, I want to send a glorious shout out to the wonderful books that have come out this past year, and to all the authors (and readers) who have not given in to the anxiety, depression, anger, and fear that I know so many of us have felt throughout the past twelve months (or more). It is the last day of the year, and I have poured all of my gratitude (and hope for a better one to come) into my annual list of my favorite reads of the year. Just 17 this year. Fewer than the past few years, which indicates a healthy dose of necessary rereading in this year that has been what it was, as well as the fact that I just didn't get to as many new releases.

My Year of Georgette Heyer | Book the First: The Convenient Marriage

This is not a drill. I repeat, THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I believe I am, in fact, upon the brink of accomplishing something that I have been meaning to do for years. I want you all to be the first to know that I just read my first very Georgette Heyer. That's right. I actually did it. After years of promising myself and countless others (many of you) that I would do it, I finally managed it! And I can tell that I'm about to dive headlong into a full-fledged binge.

After consulting all of your past comments on which Heyers are your favorites and why (and after some serious counsel from Beth and a well-timed trip to our local Barnes & Noble), I chose to start with The Convenient Marriage. I had no idea it would turn out to contain, without question, one of my favorite proposal scenes ever. The kind of proposal scene that makes you feel like nothing could ever go wrong after it. It takes place very early on, and it made me laugh and sigh repeatedly with delight. I know I will be …
