Currently reading ‘Night Film’, and although I haven’t read enough of the book to vouch for how good the story is, the writing is excellent, and it’s interesting thus far.

I LOVED Night Film. Very suspenseful… the entire book never lets up the suspense.

Just finished up most of the comics I grabbed in Pittsburgh a couple weeks back—Lucy Knisley’s graphic memoir Relish was a lot of fun, felt very, very familiar. Debbie Drechsler’s Summer of Love made me feel nostalgically blue about teen angst; it was pretty good at vividly taking one back to those times (beautifully drawn too). And Renee French never lets me down (well I mean she does, but in a good way…I’m a huge fan of her visual style). The Ticking was definitely her usual stuff, beautiful and sad and that rare balance of spare but un-squeamish about everything.

Now I’m rereading A Song For Arbonne because I feel like comfort food in book form! I took a hot shower late last night after getting in from a harried flight to my city’s first cold weather, put on PJs, and curled up under the covers with it after drinking some Butiki Coconut Cream Pie tea, yum. Bliss.

The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri, If You Could Be Mine by Sara Farizan, Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. Tea lately has been very slapdash, just some basic Irish Breakfast or some quickly made Sencha from Peets.

Ooh, how are you liking The Lowland? It’s still on order at my library, so I’m waiting for it very impatiently.

Just started but it’s lovely. I read anything she writes, she’s amazing! I ordered it from my library as well and it was a long wait.

Rereading Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. I adore fractured fairy tales and this really makes me look differently at the whole Oz story.

I actually just finished the last one in the Wicked series. My enthusiasm for the story waned as I got further into the books, but Wicked was very special to me. Enjoy!

Finally getting around to reading “Wolf Hall” by Hilary Mantel.

What kind of tea goes with Tudor fiction?

Just started “Mooch” by Adam Palmer. (Tagline: Get the money, get the girl, get it all for free.) Light comedy, I think—but those of you who NaNoWriteMo (did I moosh that together correctly?) might be interested to know that this is a NaNo project.

Ironically – The Tea Enthusiasts Handbook. Just finished Alastair Campbell “My Name Is” and well into James Frey “A Million Little Pieces” – both books cover subjects close to my heart

“The Luminaries” by Eleanor Catto, winner of the 2013 Man Booker Prize; very well deserved in my opinion.
