The heroines who most informed her were smart, creative, independent thinkers like Anne Shirley, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Nancy Drew, and Cherry Ames. Nancy proved that being a girl detective might just be the coolest career ever, but Cherry taught her that nursing was more practical. Carre compromised by becoming a nurse and marrying a sleuth.

Do you ever come across an old list and have almost no memory of the events connected to it? Maybe you’re skimming through a notebook, and you find the jotted-down menu you were planning for Thanksgiving dinner, 2006. Or you find an old, much-scribbled-on Christmas list, and ask yourself, “Did I really get my husband a socket set that year?” The older I get, the more events seem to slip into on...

The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
"I try to be fairly judicious with my five-star ratings, but this little autobiographical sketch of one woman's journey from her place in life as a lesbian, radical-feminist English professor to a stay-at-home-Psalm-singing-homeschooling-foster-mom..." Read more of this review »
The Playboy Sheikh's Virgin Stable-Girl by Sharon Kendrick
"This book is amazing...ly hilarious in its awfulness. Which means, OF COURSE, that you should read it immediately so we can snark together about the "highly sexed" sheikh and his "little lizard" stable girl. "
Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild
" Book Girl--Maybe 6-12? And their mothers, of course. :) "

Probably the most slowly-paced of the Mitford books. The letters exchanged between Father Tim and Cynthia get a little tedious, but otherwise it's pure balm for the soul, as life in Mitford always is.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
"You know how some books inspire you -- to live with courage and humor, to stand up to the bad guys, to love the people around you, to make the world a better place? Yeah, this book was not remotely like that. This book was just depressing.

“Daily I walk a high wire, always in danger of losing my balance. The essence of my life is supernatural, which I must respect if I am to make the best use of my gift.
