Silent Sunday Nights

The Red Mill 1927

Since I’ve been following Turner Classic Movie channel  more lately I have found some themes that I like. Last week was Memorial Weekend so they were showing some oldie war films. Gramps and I ended up catching some of the M.A.S.H. movie to rewatch before going to bed. Tonight, Silent Sunday Nights is back with a “Fatty” Arbuckle (aka William Goodrich) film from 1926, The Red Hill. (TCM, Facebook). Looks to be a good calming night.

Here is my Silent Sunday Nights…

Throwback Thursday Reviews

A Thursday theme of mine here where I’ve been posting some of my old reviews.

This week is from a book I read and reviewed in January 2014.


Mr. Darcy Forever by Victoria Connelly

Mr Darcy Forever by Victoria Connelly

(Austen Addicts series: Book 3)

3 out of 5 stars ★

This is the third Austen Addicts book in the series. I read the previous book Dreaming of Mr. Darcy and liked it. I attempted at reading this in 2013. But I wasn’t enjoying it and decided to temporarily set it aside for later. I do have a habit of reading a chapter or two and then stopping to read something else. But I do try to get back to the book. Continue reading

So I think I’m just about out of this reading slump here. So I can finally look forward to these TBR Tuesday posts without feeling like I’m posting the same books each week.

I’ll be posting my May Wrap Up and June Preview posts soon! I did read 3 books this month so I’m really happy about that. But in the meantime, here’s something to ponder…

Friday 56

This has been a fun bookish meme where we find a quote from page 56, and the books I’ve chosen have all been my current reads (or such). This is a Friday meme started by Freda @Freda’s Voice.


Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling

Throwback Thursday Reviews: Carol Snow

A Thursday theme of mine here where I’ve been posting some of my old reviews.

This week is from a book I read and reviewed back in February 2014.


Getting Warmer by Carol Snow

Getting Warmer by Carol Snow

Getting Warmer in Arizona 4 out of 5 stars ★

Natalie Quakenbush is a quirky character. Even her last name is odd and is even picked on by her students behind her back (though she still knows about it). It’s a cute chick lit romance. It was just a little predictable. What I liked about this was that it centered more around the main character, Natalie. She’s 29 and fearing turning 30 (wasn’t so long ago I had those days, and my youngest sister just passed that. Made fun saying that she’s now 3 decades old). Continue reading
