This package showed up today...

...and I'm Just. So. Happy.


  1. I'm so, so sorry but I just have to say--

    WHAATTTTT?!??! How--what-- how is it even possible that you got the newest Marillier before it's supposed release date! Her website says first week of November! I'm stunned! Green-eyed with envy! Jealousy coursing through my veins!

    You should be happy!

  2. Lol. I was stalking the online bookstores and saw it pop up early on Barnes & Noble's. So far I'm about 50 pages in and it is so good...

  3. oh nice! I love getting those kind of parcels.

  4. What a nice little parcel! Cybele's Secret made it on to the Cybils list at the lastest minute, so I am looking forward to reading that...

  5. A Halloween treat. Parcels like this one make the world go round.

    Charlotte, I'm glad Cybele's Secret made it in. Happy reading!

  6. OMG. The new Sharon Shinn. I am so jealous. And I still need to get around to reading Marillier.

  7. Grin. I started with the Marillier and am really looking forward to the Shinn.

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.

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 …
