It's Good to Be Back

Phew, I'm back. Vegas was hot and windy, but the wedding we attended was lovely. Lots of yummy, yummy Thai food at the reception and many good people to visit with. A much-needed getaway.

I just wanted to put up a reminder that Laurie R. King, author of the most wonderful if-you-haven't-read-them-yet-you-must Mary Russell series, will be guest blogging here on Wednesday. Laurie is promoting her latest and greatest Mary Russell--The Language of Bees. You're in for a treat so don't miss it!

I've also got several good reviews on their way up this week. Look out for my review of Fragile Eternity (much to say on that one), Dead and Gone (Sookie rules), and of course The Language of Bees.

  1. It's great to have you back! :)

    I had the pleasure of hearing Laurie R King speak this past week - about the Russell books, writing, the mystery genre in general. And I got my copy of The Language of Bees signed - super excited about that. Now I can't wait to dig in!

  2. it just came in at the library.....ahhhh I can't wait to see what Russell and Holmes do this time.......I'm also excited to see what Miss King has to say on your blog....so cool! Anyway, I'll be in Idaho starting mid June just in time for Becky's shower and then I'll stay until the end of July....the exact date depends on a certain wedding that isn't quite official yet but has been much talked about.....I'm anxious to meet this chica that has got Jeff so head over heels. So, I hope that between the shower, the 4th, and the ?wedding?, we'll be able to see each other AT LEAST once. Even better....quit your job and hang out in Malad for the summer just for good old times.....my parents just got new couches....we'll share!!! I promise not to kick! laters

  4. Chelle, thanks! And you actually got to hear her speak? Score!

    Liz, I'm deep into THE LANGUAGE OF BEES now and you will not be disappointed! Given the time you'll be in Malad, I'm sure we'll be able to hook up. New couches?!?! They must be broken in properly...

    Amy, I promise to share my many thoughts. Seth...sigh.

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.

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. 
What this means is that I refer to Ms. White's characters by their first names in casual conversation (pretty much on a daily basis) with friends and family members, and they automatically know exactly wh…
