A Work in Progress



Adventures in (mostly) reading, and (sometimes) needlework and other artsy endeavors...

Stay With Me by Ayobami Adebayo

2017-04-26T09:00:00-05:00

Shortlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction, Ayobami Adebayo's Stay With Me reads almost like a thriller with its twists and turns which is a little unexpected in a story of domestic drama and discord. It works, though; it...



Teaser Tuesday: The War

2017-04-25T08:00:00-05:00

I'm coming at this a bit late (knowing how slowly I seem to be moving through books these days I won't finish by the end of the month), but I will still read along in spirit. The War: A Memoir...



Reading Notes: Can't Say No Edition

2017-04-21T08:00:00-05:00

I bet you are not going to be surprised to hear that I am a total and complete pushover when it comes to books. And I am very much an equal opportunity booklover--I don't discriminate when it comes to buying...



Am I Not Discerning Enough?

2017-04-19T08:00:00-05:00

Just curious. Maybe I am not discerning enough. I am probably not a very critical reader and am prone to like stories more than not. I keep coming back to this question over and over in my uncertainty. I know...



Teaser Tuesday: Their Finest Hour & a Half

2017-04-18T08:00:00-05:00

I loved Lissa Evans's novel Crooked Hearts when I read it a couple of years ago. And I have owned a copy of her earlier, Orange Prize longlisted novel Their Finest Hour and a Half (or, as the book has...



First Love by Gwendoline Riley

2017-04-17T08:00:00-05:00

Have you ever been with a married couple, maybe a sibling and their spouse or a pair of friends and things become tense, a disagreement or argument breaks out. You feel like you should politely absent yourself, maybe go wash...



April 14: Weekend Reading Notes

2017-04-14T16:00:00-05:00

I don't know about you, but I am ready for the weekend! (I bet you are, too). It has been crazy busy for me at work and I am ready for a little mindlessness and time to wind down. I...



Rosemary's Baby by Ira Levin

2017-04-13T21:58:33-05:00

Is it weird to admit that I really 'enjoyed' reading Ira Levin's 1967 novel Rosemary's Baby? I mean it may well be one of my favorite reads of the year come next December. It's not exactly the content/story but a...



A Poem for a Wednesday: Dover Beach

2017-04-12T16:00:00-05:00

I can see where reading a poem or two can be a happy, calming experience and one where on a busy, hectic day makes a person feel like she has had a nice literary/bookish moment in amongst all the crazy...



Teaser Tuesday: Christopher and Columbus

2017-04-11T07:30:00-05:00

Do you hear that rustling noise in the background? Shh. If you listen closely you'll hear books shifting. That would be the sound of my current reads pile being shuffled about. It tends to lean and groan and threaten to...
