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)!

Review | All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

I thought today would be the perfect day to review this unicorn of a book. It is All Saints' Day—a fitting day to revisit all the crooked ones, no? It is also the first day of November and so, today, . . . well, you know the rest. What I'm saying is, today is kind of the perfect day to do all the Maggie Stiefvater-related things! Which is, of course, why I'll be attending her signing event later this evening at my local indie, key in hand. I know. I win today. I do. What I do not do is take it for granted. My good fortune or this book. This beautiful, beautiful book. But before we get into my reaction, I want to make a brief request. If you haven't yet had a chance to read Maggie's post on how this book came about and what it was originally going to be and what it actually became, I straight up implore you to do so. It is one of my favorite things I've read this year and it is something I needed to read this year. My favorite line? "I discovered that I wa…

Forget You by Jennifer Echols

I am having difficulty believing it was almost a year ago that I read Going Too Far. It was a solid swallow-in-a-single-gulp read and, I have often thought of Meg's "I am full of fear" mantra and smiled. I'm happy it's received the welcome attention it has in the blogosphere and I knew her next romantic drama would meet with a host of eager readers. When I first read the synopsis for Jennifer Echols' Forget You, I admit I was completely sucked in by the amnesia angle and the whole waking up to find you have a different boyfriend from the boyfriend you thought you had bit. I mean, who's not up for that? So many great possibilities when the protagonist herself doesn't know exactly what's going on. Plus, I enjoyed Ms. Echols' writing quite a bit in Going Too Far. And nearing the end of July as we are, this book was fast starting to sound like the perfect summer read to me and I looked forward to it with a high degree of anticipation.
