Literate Housewife is Taking on The Stand

Last October I revisited my first ever Stephen King novel, Pet Semetary, as part of Jenn’s Bookshelves First Book to Terrify Me feature.

Fingersmith Read-a-Long

I’ve loved Sarah Waters’ Tipping the Velvet and really enjoyed The Little Stranger.

Bloggers Recommend ~ September Recommendations

In an attempt to keep at least somewhat current, I’m going to talk a little about my September 2014 picks for the Bloggers Recommend newsletter while that newsletter is hot off the presses (instead of four or eight months later). More often that I expect, things that I read either converge with something unrelated in […]

BooktopiaAVL ~ Zelda and Guests on Earth

This past Thursday I left work after lunch and drove to gorgeous Asheville, North Carolina. You really don’t need an excuse to take a long weekend to spend there, but I did anyway.
