I recently read The Women and really enjoyed it. I'm glad you liked it!


I loved the movie of Trainspotting, but I don't think I could read the novel. The movie managed a bit of dark humour, and I don't know if that comes across on the written page. It could be a very dark and unrelenting read.


I don't remember how I came across your blog but I am so glad I did. I love your writing and have tried several of your recipes and have loved them, especially the almond cake - YUM!!! I am so glad you mentioned about wanting to be the first to read new library books, I am the same way and don't know why either. We have the same taste in books so I also love reading your reviews. This is a long comment (sorry about that) but I usually just 'lurk' but had to comment today when I saw that you mentioned 'The Women' a book I am anxiously waiting to get from my library.


I signed up for two online reading challenges, one being the Southern Challenge, for which I'm going to read Kathryn Stockett's The Help, the letters of Flannery O'Connor, and To Kill a Mockingbird, and a classics reading challenge, for which I haven't quite made my decision yet.


I've wondered about The Women - it got some so-so reviews, so I was going to put it off. Hmmm.

I love being the first to read a library book - but I'm a librarian, and I know what patrons DO to books...


I've been reading YA fiction, some of it not too bad at all. I'm interested in The Women, though - especially since Wright had such a presence in Wisconsin. I grew up not far from Taliesen.


I have Gaskell's "Wives and Daughters" in the wings. Good tip on "The Women" - much appreciated. A trip to the library is due.

I sort of love Trainspotting...
