It's in His Kiss by Julia Quinn

A very enjoyable read, but I felt like it lost a little steam about 3/4 of the way through. It was still a treat, though!

To Sir Phillip, With Love by Julia Quinn

It was different from the previous Bridgerton novels, but part of what I enjoy so much about these books is that the stories don't follow the same formula, one after another. I liked how the story treated serious issues, like depression and abuse, in ...more

Evil Under the Sun by Agatha Christie

An intriguing, engaging read. I couldn't put it down! And of course, no matter how hard I tried to think carefully on the clues and the suspects, the end was still a shock to me.
Katie liked a quote
'Tis Herself by Maureen O'Hara
“Being an Irishwoman means many things to me. An Irishwoman is strong and feisty. She has guts and stands up for what she believes in. She believes she is the best at whatever she does and proceeds through life with that knowledge. She can face any hazard that life throws her way and stay with it until she wins. She is loyal to her kinsmen and accepting of others. She's not above a sock in the jaw if you have it coming.”

Walt Disney Imagineering by The Imagineers

A super fun read about the work that goes into making Disney magic! I really enjoyed that the book didn't just focus on the American parks, but went into detail about Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Tokyo Disney. It was especially interes ...more

A Fashionable Indulgence by K.J. Charles

Clear rating
An entertaining read. At times I found the number of side characters confusing, especially as sometimes the same person might be referred to by his last name, his first name, or a nickname. I enjoyed the internal conflict Harry had of letting go of h ...more

The Confession of Fitzwilliam Darcy by Mary Street
Rate this book
Clear rating
I have a weakness for sequels or retellings of Jane Austen novels, but I'm also very particular about them. I can't stand ones that completely change the tone of the original, or who portray Darcy as a hypersexed playboy. This, therefore, was a charm ...more

“Look at that sea, girls--all silver and shadow and vision of things not seen. We couldn't enjoy its loveliness any more if we had millions of dollars and ropes of diamonds.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

C.S. Lewis
“I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once.”
C.S. Lewis

Meg Cabot
“Write the kind of story you would like to read. People will give you all sorts of advice about writing, but if you are not writing something you like, no one else will like it either.”
Meg Cabot

Sarah Dessen
“Some things don't last forever, but some things do. Like a good song, or a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold in your darkest times, pressing down on the corners and peering in close, hoping you still recognize the person you see there.”
Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby

Tamora Pierce
“I believe that sanitizing this aspect of the modern and ancient world is at the root of our troubles as a culture now. We're bred to be smug about how peaceful we are, so we can watch television and feel safely distant from violence, when it is part of our makeup. That smugness means we don't feel we have to do anything about the violence we see, because it's obviously committed by people who aren't as educated or civilized as we are. By holding ourselves aloof from global and historical violence, we allow it to continue. If we are ever to survive as a species, we need to admit we are violent and find ways to ease the plight of the victims of violence worldwide. (No, invading a violent country and bombing it will not inspire its people to give violence up. Go figure.) We must face who we are and what creates violence: helplessness, envy, rage, even the drive to grab the good things of the world that are flaunted in the faces of the poor. We must take responsibility and protect each other from violence.”
Tamora Pierce
