  9. Pretties! I'm so glad I went to BEA too or I'd be sooooo envious! I really like how this picture has a border around it. How do you get that? It's cool.

  12. Janssen, next year...next year...repeat it like a mantra. :)

    Jennie, I think I grabbed a copy of everything I could. It was like a feast.

    Mandi, grin. I understand. I have a hard time believing it myself!

    Kath, those were the three I was most excited about I think! I just finished FIRE last night and cannot wait to review it. Really looking forward to FOREST BORN and CATCHING FIRE.

    mjmbecky, lol. I will enjoy. And I will be giving away some of them, too. So stay tuned!

    Liza, I know. *sigh* The stacks are multiplying and migrating throughout the house!

    Harmony, they are all galleys I picked up at BEA (Book Expo America).

    Janice, I'm so glad you went too! The secret to my border is a Photoshopping husband. ;)

    Liviana, thanks! I think fun is in the cards this time.

    Kay, it really is serious. I'm gonna have to come up with some sort of system for deciding which one to read next.

    I'm so glad you got a copy of Soulless. I meant to ask you if you knew about it when we were waiting on the Ballad line. It looks very interesting!

    I also took pictures of my books even though I don't plan to post them anywhere. I was just so pleased with everything I picked up, I wanted a picture.

  18. Karen, I'm really looking forward to SOULLESS. She seemed very nice and offered me tea and cookies after signing my book. :) And I would love to see your picture of your haul!

    Chelle, I plan on plowing through the stack.

    Rachel, *ducks*. Sorry!

Review | If I Never Met You by Mhairi McFarlane

It's been years since I picked up a Mhairi McFarlane novel, and I'm not really sure why that is. I liked It's Not Me, It's Youwell enough (it's obvious she's quite a witty writer), but something about the execution felt off and I think I let that keep me from diving deeper into her backlist. Then came an offer to review her upcoming title If I Never Met You, and something about this one seemed to call out to me. As though it was time. As though Laurie and Jamie might be the ones. Spoiler alert: It was and they were. It was the perfect read for a couple of dreary, grey January days. While not perhaps as bubbly as I've Got Your Number, I would definitely recommend it to readers who enjoyed that novel. They share a business setting, two individuals who are more than they know themselves to be, and a wonderfully slow burn romance. Readers who love Sarra Manning and Beth O'Leary's The Flatshareshould also take note.
Comedy was tragedy plus time, but the…

Angie’s Best Books of the Decade

I am winded, you guys. Winded from laboring over this list. This is the first time I've attempted to cobble together a Best Books of the Decade list, and I can't say I'll be up to it for another ten years or so. But my, I couldn't resist the challenge (or profound pleasure, if we're being honest). I kept trying to winnow it down, kept forcing myself to be ruthless. Like somehow I could (or should) keep it to a top ten (flat impossible) or at least a top twenty-five (who are we kidding?). But after bidding those constraints good riddance, I really did press myself to take a hard, clear look at what hurts (to mangle my favorite Hemingway quote). Because these novels hurt in the best way. Each entry on this list is a five-star book in my books. Which means I wouldn't change a single thing about a single one of them. They are the ones I call perfect when I recommend them to friends and strangers. They are the ones I have read and reread over the past ten years and…

In the Beginning, or the First Ten Books I Reviewed on the Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl
It's been awhile, but this topic was too good to pass up. When I thought about it, I genuinely could not recall which were the first ten books I actually reviewed here on the blog. So then, of course, I had to know. The thing is, I originally started the whole thing simply posting a once a month list of my favorite reads and rereads of the month. That went on for some time until lo and behold I went ahead and wrote and posted my first review on November 9, 2007. In hindsight, I probably should have known exactly which book pushed me over the edge into full fledged reviews. So this was a rather delightful journey back in time. Do you remember the first book you ever reviewed (in any forum) or what made you take the plunge? Here are my first ten (and I have to say, looking at this snapshot from the past, these remain some of my absolute favorite authors and a pretty spot-on array of the genres I read and love tod…
