With Harry

  1. I can't believe Harry Potter's ending! I'm going Sunday, and I can't wait. :)

  2. Love, love, love the quote! I was feeling very sad about it all ending, and then I remembered that I can always go back to the books and enter the story again. The same is true for the movies to some extent, but these books will always live for me. They are very special, indeed!

  3. Hey, Meg! Thanks for following. :) I can't believe it, either...

    Heidenkind, :)

    Joanna, oh, so do I. Makes me tear up every time. I was kind of broken up after the movie. Thank heavens we have the books. They are the best.

  4. Angie, I cried and cried and cried through most of the second half; I cried more in the movie than I did in the book! It was just so good! I think it's probably the best movie adaptation of the eight.

  5. I still don't believe that's the final story of Harry. J.K. Rowling will gives us more of Harry sooner or later, at least that's the hope!

  6. Joanna, oh dear. I know! I was a soppy mess. No surprise to anyone there, I'm sure...

    Jeff, interesting. I have always been pretty sure she'd never return. But you may very well be right. Never say never. And I'd be the first in line to read it! :)

  7. It won't work in reality, that's exactly what I consider.

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…

Review | The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary

All it took was hearing the basic bones of the premise of Beth O'Leary's debut novel The Flatsharefor me to determine I would absolutely be reading it as soon as I possibly could. I was so delighted to be granted access to an advanced reading copy by Flatiron Books. Even better, it became apparent from the moment I read the first few lines that this reading experience would take place in one headlong rush. No significant breaks allowed, let alone required. The Flatshare was published first in the UK and then slightly later here in the U.S. I dithered over which cover to buy as both have much to recommend them, but I finally decided on the U.S. cover (pictured here). I just love the two of them standing on either side of the same door, the tiny heart between the title and author name.

Tiffy is in a massive, massive bind. Out on her ear after breaking up with her exceptionally controlling boyfriend, she needs an inexpensive place to live and she needs it yesterday. Despite her …

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, Lend me Your Recs

Guys. We are going on a trip―a trip we have been planning for years. And it is finally happening next week! We're going to visit my parents in France, and we are taking the whole gang. Or rather, all three kids but not the dog. Who I am desperately sad about leaving and really hope he doesn't think we've up and given him to another family and proceed to forget all about us. It's just two weeks. But we've never left him that long before, and I am obviously emotional about it. Have I posted pics of Sodapop here before? I'm not sure that I ever have. Here he is on the day we got him: And here he is now in his natural habitat, which is to say in my library on laundry day: Ahem. 
The actual point of this post is to get your reading recs for the trip! I'm completely torn over which physical books to take with me. Yes, I realize most of my reading will be done on my Kindle by necessity, but I always have to have some physical copies with me. For both safety and I…
