Catie's Recent Updates

Resistance is Futile by Jenny Colgan
"Originally posted on Paris Baker's Book Nook.

I’ve been a huge fan of Jenny Colgan’s beautiful romantic comedies for years, but I’ve also always loved the fact that Jenny has a nerd-side and is a Whovian, much like myself. Therefore, when I first..." Read more of this review »
Resistance is Futile by Jenny Colgan
""Resistance is Futile" is both fun and carries a few surprises, especially for those that were expecting something more along the lines of Colgan's earlier novels - which are more standard feelgood-romances (excluding the Dr Who ones, of course)...." Read more of this review »

Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho
"Copy provided by NetGalley

There have been a plethora of fantasy-romances-in-the-Regency of late, not surprising considering there's a good chance that a lot of these authors grew up reading Georgette Heyer, and possibly Jane Austen. Except for Sus..." Read more of this review »

On the one hand, the window into the world of the Sherry families in Spain in the early twentieth century was fascinating and gripping in it's own right.
On the other, the people side of the story felt oddly skew-whiff throughout. I never felt a great

“The best reason for a knitter to marry is that you can't teach the cat to be impressed when you finish a lace scarf.”
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

Connie Willis
“Cats, as you know, are quite impervious to threats.”
Connie Willis, To Say Nothing of the Dog

Kate Atkinson
“Why do cats sleep so much? Perhaps they've been trusted with some major cosmic task, an essential law of physics - such as: if there are less than 5 million cats sleeping at any one time the world will stop spinning. So that when you look at them and think, "what a lazy, good-for-nothing animal," they are, in fact, working very, very hard.”
Kate Atkinson

“I agree that it's a shame some books have to suffer ratings that clearly are invalid. However I can't think of a way to prevent it, and I didn't see any ideas in the thread either (I did skim though).

I hope you'll appreciate that if we just start deleting ratings whenever we feel like it, that we've gone down a censorship road that doesn't take us to a good place.”
Otis Y. Chandler

“Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either.”
Elizabeth Zimmermann
