Happy Tuesday! Today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is all about platonic relationships in fiction, so I decided to talk about my favorite siblings in fiction.

Or would that be ‘reticule whomping’ in Jane Austen’s case? 😉 Today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is all about villains, and there were any number of ways I could have gone with this post. But I knew whatever I did it needed a purse whomping angle to it! Not that […]

Happy Tuesday! Today is a Back-To-School theme for Top Ten Tuesday, so I thought I’d use this space to talk about books that a) are fiction and b) still taught me something & inspired me to learn more. Because anyone who says that stories don’t teach is clearly (and sadly) […]
