An Everlasting Feast by Tamar Adler

An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace by Tamar Adler My rating: 3 of 5 stars I noticed this book popping up in various spots and have been waiting for the library to cycle through others who requested it before me.

Elements of Faith Book Club – 2013 Reading List

I’ve gotta love a faith-based book club that includes Jane Eyre, Unholy Night, and The Hobbit on their reading list. And I want to point out that these were not all my idea. This is a Catholic women’s book club filled with wildly diverse readers so we get a sprinkling of all sorts of different [Read More...]

My Sisters the Saints

Recently I received a review copy of My Sisters the Saints, a “spiritual memoir” by Colleen Carroll Campbell, and I confess I stayed up late to finish it. In this book Campbell shares her life with us, both the good and the bad, and along the way she tells about particular saints who helped her [Read More...]

Return of the Thin Man

I am a long time fan of the Thin Man movies which starred William Powell and Myrna Loy as Nick and Nora Charles.  They were really the prototype of the married detectives and this first incarnation of this genre remains one of the best.  So often we have detectives that are purposely single so that they can pursue love interests [Read More...]

Soul of Fire

Soul of Fire is the second novel in Sarah Hoyt’s “Magical British Empire” trilogy, and it’s rather better than Heart of Light, its predecessor—though not devoid of problems. I am most unusually going to indulge in spoilers in this review; be warned. It seems that there are two magic rubies, the Heart of Light and [Read More...]

I Left My Brains in San Francisco: More than Just Zombies

I Left My Brains in San Francisco cover

Lately, I’ve caught myself reading books with zombies in it. I don’t really like horror. I read enough of it in my youth to stock me up in nightmares for years to come. But zombie books are…well, I guess they’re horror. Right? Even so, I can’t help but recommend I Left My Brains in San Francisco, the [Read More...]

The Prestige by Christopher Preist

The Prestige by Christopher Priest

The Prestige by Christopher Priest It’s difficult to say how long it’s been since I’ve been as enthralled with an audiobook as I was with this unabridged version of the World Fantasy Award-winning The Prestige (Blackstone Audio). Simon Vance narrated, and since the story is primarily told through journal entries of the two main characters, [Read More...]
