  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.

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…

Angie's Best Books of 2019

It is the last day of the year. How are you doing at this point? You good to go on? I'm going to. For a number of important reasons, which are too varied (or possibly too private) to enumerate here. So how about we say we shall go on because: "Gansey. That's all there is." I find that "Because Gansey" is highly motivating when motivation is thin on the ground.

Also thin on the ground have been my posts this year. And yet, I'm still not stopping. And I still greatly enjoy arriving at this final post of the year. And so here I leave my best books of the year. It wound up being a respectable nineteen titles this year. Nineteen for 2019. That's down a fair bit from last year's whopping twenty-eight, but rather on par with previous years' lists and more than 2016 and 2017, respectively. I'm pleased. I'm pleased with every book on this list, with every one of the books you shared with me and the ones I've been able to share with you. …
