I thoroughly enjoyed these two recent reads. My Sister's Intended by Rachael Anderson is an engaging Regency Romance that didn't make me roll my eyes once. And The Thin Woman by Dorothy Cannell is both a treasure hunt and a mystery all in one. Both of these books are light-hearted, humorous reads by authors I look forward to reading again.
Another John Atkinson 'summing up' that totally made me laugh!
His Stephen King spoilers are equally funny:
(And now you don't have to read the books!)
Another thing I love? This....
Need I say more?
:) A lovely fantasy scene, interesting books, and fun spoilers!ReplyDelete
I would definitely explore that location and those spoiler - Awesome. The King ones hit the nail on the head!ReplyDelete
Aren't those King spoilers great? They totally made me laugh.Delete
Love the abandoned, overgrown library! A regency romance that didn’t make you roll your eyes? Wow. I read tons of these as a teen and loved them but there was always eye rolling. I’ll have to check it out.ReplyDelete
The library is awesome, isn't it? And I liked that the Regency romance had a lot of humor in it, and that it wasn't super long, and so didn't have time to get stupid.Delete
I enjoyed The Thin Woman too. The library is mystical, is that a photo or a painting? If a photo, I hope someone has rescued those books. Can you tell I am a librarian?ReplyDelete
I think it's a painting/diorama. Not a photo. But you can check out the artist's website to be sure.Delete
Love the book picture, and yes I wish it was real! The spoilers are pretty funny! I guess those authors do stick to a general formula. :)ReplyDelete
It's funny how many of their books have that same plot. :DDelete
Ooooh, if that place were real I would never want to leave.ReplyDelete
Right? I feel the same way! :)Delete
That place looks amazing! Wow! And I loved those spoilers - spot on!ReplyDelete
Aren't they great?Delete
LOL. Those SK spoilers are funny. I haven't read Cujo so I guess I don't have to read it? ;pReplyDelete
;D Guess not.Delete
I love that scene, I would definitely hang out there! Especially in its heyday- looks like maybe an elven library in Middle- earth or something. :)ReplyDelete
I love those spoiler boxes, especially the King one!
It does look like an Elven library in Middle-earth! How cool would it be to spend a day there?Delete
That neglected library looks kind of sad! The Dickens thing sums up my issues with classics-poor guy gets rich or woman marries man after problems!ReplyDelete
Ha! You always make me laugh. :)Delete
My Sister's Intended has been on my TBR since it came out. It sounds like a great read and that cover is gorgeous. I've read quite a few of Rachael Anderson's books and loved them all, so I don't know why I haven't read this one yet, lol. Hopefully I will soon!ReplyDelete
You'll like My Sister's Intended. It's very fun and humorous.Delete
That picture kind of could be a representation of The Cemetery of Forgotten Books in the Carlos Ruiz Zafon series.ReplyDelete
Those cartoons are classic (and so true...but for lovers of either author, I think that is exactly why we read them! :D)
I love The Cemetery of Forgotten Books! (Especially because if you go there you get to leave with a book.) :DDelete
Love, love love the photograph. Very unusual but beautiful.ReplyDelete
And the summaries are great, they made me laugh so loud!
They made me laugh, too. :)Delete
I love that picture! To read among not only books but trees as well . . . Heaven. I love the comics. Dickens and King don't vary their plot very often in those books, do they? HahaReplyDelete
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, Lark!
Thank you so much! :)Delete
Oooh, that place is intriguing! I would very much like to explore all those nooks and crannies as well.ReplyDelete
I like Regency romances that don't make me roll my eyes :) I'll have to check out the one you mentioned plus the treasure hunt/mystery -- both sound like entertaining reads.
They were both fun. :)Delete
I came across a whole series of photos of miniature abandoned libraries and other buildings once. I think this one was part of it. It was so cool; I would love to find it again!ReplyDelete
I read The Thin Woman decades ago, and it was indeed a fun light mystery. And the comics summarizing Dickens and King books are hilarious.
Atkinson's comics are so funny. I love them. :)Delete
Haha... Those spoilers are awesome! Love the library in ruins. Just imagine what treasures you'd find!ReplyDelete
Isn't it the coolest?Delete
