  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.

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.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…

Update | Real Life

I felt like it might be worth writing a very brief real life update here. If just because it's occupied so much of my mental space recently. And, of course, because whatever is currently occupying large swaths of your mental space plays a not insignificant role in your reading life and which book you reach for at the end of any given day. So.

I have worked at the same job since four months after this blog began. Until a week ago, that is, when I packed up my bags and left to start a brand new job. I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around that bare fact. First and foremost, I am incredibly grateful and pleased to have this new job. It was time. In fact, all throughout my job search, that exquisite quote from the wonderful Mo Willems ran on repeat through my head,
If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave. The position I had served its purpose very well. It was what I and my family needed for that period in our lives. But at this new point in my life, it had b…
