Rice Chex

My parents’ house, which will always feel like home
My lovely hometown library and bookstore


Things I am looking forward to about coming back to the UK:

Jasmine is on page 100 of 272 of The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher: "Finally Frog shouted, "I'm going to throw up all over Eli unless someone tells me what's wrong with Lucy RIGHT NOW."
Once again, the room fell silent. Frog had been able to vomit on command since he was three and had refused to try fish. No one doubted his word."

“I was twelve years of age when I cut my hair short, became a highwayman, and captured husbands for both of my sisters.

I could hardly wait to find out what would happen next.”

I made it almost to the end of my front garden.”
Stephanie Burgis, Kat, Incorrigible

“For me, Mama's cabinet had been full of mysteries and secrets to be puzzled out, like an adventure. For them it had been full of memories. And I had broken all of them.”

Thank you! I've added them. I'm surprised it's taken me so long to read her, as I've heard so many good things about her writing for years. So much to read, so little time!

Oh, I'm so glad you enjoyed Kat, Incorrigible!

My personal favorite Heyer novels (each of them quite different from each other) are The Talisman Ring (my top favorite!), Devil's Cub, and Faro's Daughter. The nice thing is, there was so much variety in her writing, if you try different novels of hers, you're almost sure to find at least one that clicks!

Mary Really enjoyed Kat, Incorrigible, Stephanie! I can't wait to read book two! I'm so glad Sara recommended it to me. If you have any Georgette Heyer recs, I'd love to know where to start!

US people, A Most Improper Magick is a book you should get next year, I highly recommend it!

Stephanie Good to see you too, Liz! I've gotten so addicted to Goodreads... ;)
