I was encouraged to hear from my mom, who gave me this book as a birthday gift, that Sweetness was Alan Bradley’s first novel, published when he was 70 years old. Good fiction writing is so much more difficult than it seems like it would be, and so p ...more

This was a fun, non-demanding read that, while engaging and artful in some ways, left me cold in others. Admittedly, after being introduced to the Anthony Andrews, Jane Seymour, Ian McKellan film in a high school world history class, I immediately be ...more

Re-read 5/16. Just as good!

My bedtime reading having been rather heavy of late, I decided to pull out this refreshingly quirky book full of the perfectly dry yet ridiculous humor of Wodehouse. He is so evocative, I cannot help giggling (even with a s

I've been indulging myself a bit in the reading department over the past few weeks. I think a Wodehouse by the bedside might be the maxed-out brain's equivalent to a cup of chicken soup for an ailing body. This book is half Blandings Castle and the E ...more

L.M. Montgomery
“Marilla felt more embarrassed than ever. She had intended to teach Anne the childish classic, "Now I lay me down to sleep." But she had, as I have told you, the glimmerings of a sense of humor--which is simply another name for a sense of the fitness of things; and it suddenly occurred to her that simple little prayer, sacred to the white-robed childhood lisping at motherly knees, was entirely unsuited to this freckled witch of a girl who knew and cared nothing about God's love, since she had never had it translated to her through the medium of human love.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Evelyn Underhill
“On every level of life, from housework to heights of prayer, in all judgment and efforts to get things done, hurry and impatience are sure marks of the amateur.”
Evelyn Underhill

L.M. Montgomery
“There was no mistaking her sincerity--it breathed in every tone of her voice. Both Marilla and Mrs. Lynde recognized its unmistakable ring. But the former understood in dismay that Anne was actually enjoying her valley of humiliation--was reveling in the thoroughness of her abasement. Where was the wholesome punishment upon which she, Marilla, had plumed herself? Anne had turned it into a species of positive pleasure.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Edmund Spenser
“Aye me, how many perils do enfold
The righteous man, to make him daily fall?
Were not, that heavenly grace doth him uphold,
And steadfast truth acquite him out of all.”
Edmund Spenser, Fierce Wars and Faithful Loves

C.S. Lewis
“I was with book, as a woman is with child.”
C.S. Lewis, Till We Have Faces
