Friday Giggles: Condensed Version

For your Friday Giggles I present you with the hilarious Book-A-Minute Classics and Book-A-Minute SF/F sites, with their "Ultra-Condensed Books" lists. Browse about at will. But make sure you take a peek at the particularly giggle-worthy ultra-condensed versions of A Tale of Two Cities, Pride & Prejudice, The Fionavar Tapestry, and my personal favorite--The Book of Three. What the heck, let's throw Twilight in there for good measure. Enjoy.

Cover Reveal + Q&A: A Season of Daring Greatly by Ellen Emerson White

As longtime readers of the blog know, I am a full-fledged Ellen Emerson White fangirl and have been for something going on time immemorial. What this means is that a few years ago, having just finished reading my local library's copy of The Road Homefor the second time in as many days, I sat on the couch, brandished the book at my newlywed husband, and told him I was seriously considering never returning it (my conscience did eventually kick in and I meekly returned the library copy—after managing to procure a copy of my own, naturally). 
What this means is I went on to purchase an obscene number of out of print copies of the same title(before it was available as an e-book) and proceeded to send them winging their way across the globe to homes where I knew they were needed.

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.
