Wednesday Giggles: Princess Version


Once I read this story in The New York Times, I knew there was no way I wasn't going to post a link to it on the blog. I've chosen it for my Giggles feature this week but I must give you fair warning that, while it made me giggle several times, it also made me cry. In the best possible way. Trust me, you do not want to miss this single dad's account of raising his 4-year-old little girl.

Enjoy.

(Thanks so much to Gina for the link!)

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I'm just going to start off by saying I cannot stop thinking about this book. I finished it weeks ago, but this lovely Beauty and the Beast adaptation will not leave my mind. This is the first book I've really read by Meagan Spooner. I gave These Broken Stars a bit of a go awhile back, but we sort of drifted apart halfway through. Not the case here. The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

For the past couple of days I have been somewhat swallowed up in Eva Ibbotson's The Morning Gift. This was the one Ibbotson historical I'd somehow missed. I'm going to finish it tonight, so a review will be forthcoming. But until then, please have this—Christopher Plummer's unparalleled recitation of "Brown Penny" by W.B. Yeats.
