A North & South Celebration

Morning, guys! Today I'm over at Melanie's Musings helping to wrap up her fabulous North & South Celebration. Melanie (aware of my strong feelings for the series) kindly invited me to contribute a post to her two-week-long love letter to all things North & South. So I'm talking about the study in contrasts that sucked me in and made me a permanent fangirl of the series. We'd love it if you stopped in to say hi and tell us why you love it, too.


  1. I just finished reading north and south for the first time. I finally decided that after watching the movie a million times, I probably should read the book. I almost never like to see the movie before reading the book, but in this case, being able to picture Richard Armitage the entire length of the book was heavenly. sigh sigh sigh. Maybe I need to watch the movie again today because the laundry can wait but Richard can not...."Look back at me!" sigh

  2. Liz, nice job reading the book! Oh, the "Look back at me" scene. Something clamps down hard on my heart whenever I watch it.

  3. So...I added this on Netflix because since I loved and watched Downton Abbey, Netflix recommended this to me! I will go and read your post! I need to watch this show!

    1. Yup. Veeeeery good bet if you love Downton, you'll love this.

  4. Love this series! I might have to re-watch it during the long wait for Downton Abbey season 3!

    1. W.L., perfect use of that long stretch of time.

  5. I must have watched the ending of North & South 20 times!

  6. I LOVE that series!!!! I did not know that there was a celebration going on!! I will definitely be checking it out! YAY!!

    1. Meg, harooyah (as my son would say)!

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…

Retro Friday Review: Goodbye Pink Pig by C.S. Adler

Retro Fridayis a weekly meme hosted here at Angieville and focuses on reviewing books from the past. This can be an old favorite, an under-the-radar book you think deserves more attention, something woefully out of print, etc. Everyone is welcome to join in at any time! I include roundups from participating bloggers in my weekly post. You'll forgive me for indulging in what is essentially pure nostalgia this week and reviewing a book I hadn't thought of in years, but which had a profound impact on me as a young girl. I was remembering the school I attended in fifth grade the other night and mentally wandering the halls and rooms. I remembered the wonderful library it had and the kind librarian there who listened to me talk about how much I loved Lloyd Alexander and Susan Cooper and, smiling, led me over to wonderful, new authors such as Madeleine L'Engle. It was in this library that I was perusing one day when I came across Good-bye Pink Pigby C.S. Adler. I know. Can you be…
