Tuesday Giggles: All-Time Hotties of PBS Version

Because I am stressed today and need a good grin, you get the All-Time Hottest Hunks of PBS. A few of the usual suspects are there (Cumberbatch, Branagh, Isaacs, Stevens, always a pleasure) as well as a few unexpected gems as demonstrated above (Jeremy Irons + Anthony Andrews = the whole package). Best of all, they are there for all the right reasons. Rocks a tweed. Good stubble. Broods attractively. You get the picture. Happy browsing!


  1. LOL - I saw this list a few days ago and I think it's great. I do love me some PBS. And wow! about Jeremy Irons. It almost makes me sad that I was much to young to appreaciate him back in 1982. :)
    Good luck with the stress. I hope tomorrow is better for you.

    1. Me, too, Misti! He was much older when I first ran across him. More's the pity . . .

  2. A great list!!!! Ooo la la!!!
    I hope today goes better for you and you feel less stressed.

    1. Lol! Thanks, Lin. This was a step in the right direction. ;)

  3. Thank you. Sincerely, thank you.

    (Here's for a more relaxed tomorrow)

  4. This list made my day, Angie! It's kinda the truest list ever. And I LOVE that Laurence Fox got number 1--I'm always pushing that show on everybody.

    1. Huzzah!

      I knew that #1 slot would get you. It's still on my list to get to!

  5. I love PBS. Endeavor is a good show, it seems like Inspector Lewis might be over and this one is supposed to fill the void? Also: I laughed when they described Jason Isaacs' "cute little sticky-outy ears".

    1. I haven't actually seen Endeavor, so good to hear it's good. I have a good friend who's doing her best to get me to start Inspector Lewis posthaste.

      The ears comment -- hilarious.

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: Ellie and the Harpmaker by Hazel Prior

It is a pleasure to be a part of the blog tour for Hazel Prior's debut novel Ellie and the Harpmaker. I confess it was the title that drew me in when Berkley approached me about a possible review. It sounded a bit fey, a bit on the ethereal side. The comparisons to the exquisite Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Finedecidedly did not hurt. And so I readily accepted and opened my review copy to the first page. A thought:
Some things are easier to hide than others.

A fact:
Harps come under the "others" category. So do small boys. As you know by now, I am such a sucker for a good epigraph, and this one did the trick nicely. As did the novel's opening lines: A woman came to the barn today. Her hair was the color of walnut wood. Her eyes were the color of bracken in October. Her socks were the color of cherries, which was noticeable because all the rest of her clothes were sad colors. And so we are introduced to one Dan Hollis and the particular way that he sees the world and …

In the Beginning, or the First Ten Books I Reviewed on the Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl
It's been awhile, but this topic was too good to pass up. When I thought about it, I genuinely could not recall which were the first ten books I actually reviewed here on the blog. So then, of course, I had to know. The thing is, I originally started the whole thing simply posting a once a month list of my favorite reads and rereads of the month. That went on for some time until lo and behold I went ahead and wrote and posted my first review on November 9, 2007. In hindsight, I probably should have known exactly which book pushed me over the edge into full fledged reviews. So this was a rather delightful journey back in time. Do you remember the first book you ever reviewed (in any forum) or what made you take the plunge? Here are my first ten (and I have to say, looking at this snapshot from the past, these remain some of my absolute favorite authors and a pretty spot-on array of the genres I read and love tod…

Review | The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary

All it took was hearing the basic bones of the premise of Beth O'Leary's debut novel The Flatsharefor me to determine I would absolutely be reading it as soon as I possibly could. I was so delighted to be granted access to an advanced reading copy by Flatiron Books. Even better, it became apparent from the moment I read the first few lines that this reading experience would take place in one headlong rush. No significant breaks allowed, let alone required. The Flatshare was published first in the UK and then slightly later here in the U.S. I dithered over which cover to buy as both have much to recommend them, but I finally decided on the U.S. cover (pictured here). I just love the two of them standing on either side of the same door, the tiny heart between the title and author name.

Tiffy is in a massive, massive bind. Out on her ear after breaking up with her exceptionally controlling boyfriend, she needs an inexpensive place to live and she needs it yesterday. Despite her …
