Evening Stops

Just wanted to drop a few links this evening for your browsing pleasure. The Best of 2009 lists are popping up all over the place and, until I finish trimming mine down, I wanted to highlight just a few of my favorites thus far.
Be sure to check out Michelle's list over at See Michelle Read. Her categories are great, including Best Throwback, Best Author Discovery, and Best YA...Period. Unsurprisingly, I'm with her in every particular.
Pamela over at The Discriminating Fangirl has posted her Top Ten of 2009 list and it's solid. Some I've read, some I haven't, a shout out to the new Star Trek movie *love*, and even a Shallow Honorable Mention category. Hehe.
Amy of My Friend Amy has put together a rather fun, awfully sweet list entitled 2009--Blogs I Have Loved, in which she highlights bloggers who have touched, challenged, and entertained her this year. Definitely give it a read-through.

And last but certainly not least, if you haven't dropped by Ilona Andrews' site in the last few days, you really should. As a Christmas gift to their readers, Ilona and Gordon posted Part 2 of the cage scene from Magic Strikes from Curran's point of view. As you might expect, it's a little slice of awesome. Gordon rocks.
Have a lovely evening!

  1. Thanks for the linkage Angie! And for the heads up about the snippet from Ilona Andrews - love, love anything that is from Curran's POV *sigh* He rocks my furry world.

  2. Yup, guilty as charged! I didn't do one on books, but I covered movies and music this week.
    Thanks for the links!

  3. Thanks for the link! I couldn't decide what to do with Wolverine otherwise, because it wasn't exactly a great film, but I had to make mention of the pretty! :D

  4. Michelle, my pleasure. I loved your list. Have you read the Curran POV yet?! *waits*

    Diane, I love all the lists. Will check out yours.

    TDF, you bet. Gotta give the pretty the credit it deserves. ;)

  5. Just read the story and am grinning like a silly idiot. Curran, Curran... how can I wait for Magic Bleeds?!? Also, I want Julie to get older (fast) so something can happen between her and Derek. They both deserve a little HEA. *sigh* so happy...

  6. Michelle, *nods* that was my response exactly. Curran...he's just sort of the best. Got my fingers crossed for Julie & Derek, too.

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…
