    That is one of my favorite scenes from the book (and movie), but to hear him read it? Just, wow!

  4. Love it. I adore the book and the Richard Armitage, er I mean, the TV version with Richard Armitage *cough* ;)

    I wish there was an audio version of the whole book read by him. I could listen to his voice all day...

    1. I would buy that audiobook so fast. It seems like a no-brainer to me. I can't believe they haven't done it yet.

    Thanks so much for posting this, Angie. I love North and South very much (probably more than Pride and Prejudice). It's certainly a lot more passionate. If you loved the BBC mini-series, you should read the book itself as it expands on many of the scenes. Elizabeth Gaskell describes so well how those two fell in love. I feel a re-read coming on!

    1. It does feel a bit close, now that you mention it. It really was the perfect scene to have him read,

      He greatly enhanced The Hobbit for me as well.

  16. I read this book, and wasn't a huge fan, but the miniseries is one of my favorite things ever. If he narrated an audiobook of this, I bet I'd even love the book. Oh, swoon!

    1. Oh, that's interesting Christina. I have heard people say this is one instance in which the film outshines the book. And given my love for the film, I can kind of believe it. But him narrating the audiobook? Forgetaboutit...

  17. For Christmas my sister bought me a Richard Armitage calendar - easily my favourite pressie for this year! Now I can sit here and look at Mr January and listen to this over and over and over. Sounds like a perfect Sunday morning to me!

Interview with Diana Peterfreund + Rampant Giveaway!

Ever since I fell in love with Diana Peterfreund 's Secret Society Girl series last year, I've been hoping I'd get the chance to interview her here. Tomorrow marks the release of her new novel, Rampant , and let me tell you that you have not read a book like this before. You can read my review here , but all you really need to know is that it's a story about killer unicorns and the young women who hunt them. You want to read it now, don't you? Oh, yeah, and it's YA and the first in a series! To celebrate the release, Diana graciously answered a few of my most burning questions. As she is always a delight, I know you'll enjoy them as much as I did. First things first: When did the idea for Rampant first hit you and what (if anything) did you know right off the bat? In early 2005, just after selling Secret Society Girl , I had this dream of being chased by a very dangerous unicorn. I woke up and went to go look it up to see if I could figure out the meanin

Review | To Sir Phillip, With Love by Julia Quinn

The first book to make it onto my best books I've read so far this year list was actually a surprise. Thanks to Bridgerton's massive success, Julia Quinn's name is everywhere these days. And I'm chuffed about the whole thing. That said, my Quinn reading up to this point has been sporadic at best. And I'd only read two novels in the actual Bridgerton series. So I decided to rectify that at the beginning of the year by starting with Eloise's story (the fifth in the series) because she is my uncontested favorite of the siblings. I had no idea what her story held, but I knew she would be a compelling lead. I also love the title and the role that letters play in the story.   Eloise Bridgerton is tired of everything. She is tired of the endless inane whirl of life among the ton. She is tired of being paraded around and forced to dance and converse with all the wrong men. But most of all she is tired of being suddenly and unexpectedly alone after her best friend Penelo
