    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.

  9. When I found this clip on tumblr, my heart did a happy dance but it's even better as a youtube video with that photo montage. *emits a big, happy sigh* His voice is so lovely.

  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!

Angie's Best Books of 2016

Let's just lay our cards on the table, shall we, and agree that, on the whole, 2016 was an abysmal year.
And I'd just like to personally invite it not to let the door hit it on the way out.
This is me being as charitable as I can possibly be at this point. 
That said, I want to send a glorious shout out to the wonderful books that have come out this past year, and to all the authors (and readers) who have not given in to the anxiety, depression, anger, and fear that I know so many of us have felt throughout the past twelve months (or more). It is the last day of the year, and I have poured all of my gratitude (and hope for a better one to come) into my annual list of my favorite reads of the year. Just 17 this year. Fewer than the past few years, which indicates a healthy dose of necessary rereading in this year that has been what it was, as well as the fact that I just didn't get to as many new releases.

My Year of Georgette Heyer | Book the First: The Convenient Marriage

This is not a drill. I repeat, THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I believe I am, in fact, upon the brink of accomplishing something that I have been meaning to do for years. I want you all to be the first to know that I just read my first very Georgette Heyer. That's right. I actually did it. After years of promising myself and countless others (many of you) that I would do it, I finally managed it! And I can tell that I'm about to dive headlong into a full-fledged binge.

After consulting all of your past comments on which Heyers are your favorites and why (and after some serious counsel from Beth and a well-timed trip to our local Barnes & Noble), I chose to start with The Convenient Marriage. I had no idea it would turn out to contain, without question, one of my favorite proposal scenes ever. The kind of proposal scene that makes you feel like nothing could ever go wrong after it. It takes place very early on, and it made me laugh and sigh repeatedly with delight. I know I will be …

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'…
