You May Have Been Wondering...



...where I've been this last week!

At home.

Sucking cough drops.

I was floored with a terrifically awful cold, and everything came to a grinding halt, including blogging and writing. I am so sorry to leave you all like that. I did, however, enjoy finishing Our Mutual Friend (happy sigh) and can't wait to review that soon for you all! Also, Elisabeth Grace Foley is releasing The Lost Lake House next week, and I'll be posting a review this week about this fun novella you won't want to miss. :)

There are book reviews, character letters, articles, and a new blog design all in the planning stages--and now that I'm starting to get on my feet again, we'll be going full steam ahead!

And tomorrow, we'll be having a very special guest post from Emily Hayse on writing and creativity. Be sure to stop back to check it out!

What have you been reading this week? What do you think of it? I'd love to know!

    1. It was not fun. :( But I got a lot of reading done, and now I feel like reading again--and surprisingly I feel remarkably well rested. So yay for that!

  2. I hope you feel better soon! Prayers heading your way.

    I've been steadily increasing the pile of books I'm working on. I was already reading Tolkien's THE HOBBIT and C. S. Lewis's THE WEIGHT OF GLORY when I heard about "Reading Ireland Month" (https://746books.wordpress.com/2016/02/29/readireland2016/) and decided to throw some Irish books on the stack too. I tried out CASTLE RACKRENT by Maria Edgeworth (a contemporary of Jane Austen's), but so far, it hasn't been terribly interesting. I think I might leave that one unfinished. I also started James Joyce's short story collection DUBLINERS. The jury's still out on that one. I've also been reading some books on Celtic mythology. Lady Augusta Gregory's GODS AND FIGHTING MEN has been quite interesting so far.

    1. Thank-you so much, Hanna! I'm back at 'em again and feeling grand!

      READING IRELAND MONTH. How did I miss this precious thing? I'm so sad. I'm hoping to read DUBLINERS soon too, as someone recently recommended it to me. You have excellent taste in your to read stack!

      Have you read Rosemary Sutcliff's The High Deeds of Finn MacCool? All about Irish legends, and you would love it.

    2. Well the month's not over yet, so you might have time to read a few Irish books. Maybe short ones, like some plays (Oscar Wilde's THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST is pretty hilarious).

      I have not read THE HIGH DEEDS OF FINN MACCOOL yet, although it's been on my list for a while. Actually, I haven't read anything by Rosemary Sutcliff yet, so I'm looking forward to that.

  3. Recently I finished reading King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table by Roger L Green.I enjoyed his retelling of the Arthur stories.

    Currently I'm reading Field Day-Getting Society Out of School by Matt Hern.He writes about the alternatives to the Public School system.

    1. Thank-you m'dear! I'm very glad too!

      I'm buying a design off Etsy for the present, to give me a refresh while I figure out a more permanent design. Only problem is, the shop owner went on break and when they came back, the design I wanted was gone. :/ So now I have to choose another one!
