I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

I liked this classic. It's been on my 'to read' shelf for years and for one reason or another I kept passing it by but finally after hearing 'Mrs. Danvers' referred to multiple times in other unrelated literary discussions- my curiosity got the best of me and I had to find out just what was so compelling about the good Mrs. Danvers. After reading all about her I'm a little anxious for Mr. Danvers... What happened to that poor man I wonder...? At any rate, I enjoyed the story but this isn't one I'll hang on to for a re-read some time down the line. I am impressed by the raw criminality and laciviousness hinted at in the book. I imagine for 1938 this was pretty racy and raw suspense. I like it. Good stuff.
