This is a great book. It amazes me that Orwell wrote this in 1948, since it is still a threat in our day. It is crazy what fear will bring people to d ...more

I'm SO suprised I have never read a Gaskell novel. I was a little leary in the beginning because it seemed a Pride and Predjudice re-telling. Don't fe ...more

Murder at the Vicarage (Miss Marple, #1)
3.99
In an effort to diversify I read this mystery. Fun, light reading. Agatha Christie is witty and clever. I will probably read more in the future.

The Blue Sword (Damar, #2)
4.24
These are such fun books. I'm going to go against popular opinion and say I liked the Hero and the Crown a bit more. Still, a really really fun read.

Cotillion

Not for feminists. Good thing I have outgrown my feminism phase. The heroine is utterly flawed at doing anything for herself! But, I really liked it.

Belle Weather: Mostly Sunny with a Chance of Scattered Hissy Fits
3.85
Fun - reminds me of my mom and aunt. Crass southern women with the use of well-placed cuss words. Think Weezer on Steel Magnolias.

Fun to read this one again. Every once in a while I like to read Newberry Award winners. It makes me feel young again!

Oh, if men were just like they are in books . . . of course those books ARE written by women.

Angels & Demons  (Robert Langdon, #1)

This was a fun page-turner. One thing is obvious - Mr. Brown has an ego the size of Texas.
