While I normally review my books in the order I read them, given how topical it is, I figured I'd bump it up. So, today... I review Harper Lee's second (or first) book (whoa, never thought I'd be writing that sentence). I have a little something to tell you. I know it's going to come as a shock. But... Santa Claus isn't real I'll give you a few moments to digest that. Okay, now that you know the truth... this is exactly how I feel about Atticus Finch's character change fro
Two friends gave me belated Christmas gifts yesterday, and they were both book-related. And TOTALLY AWESOME! The first is a book sculpture- a copy of Jane Eyre where the pages are folded (not cut, so it doesn't seem so painful) in a way to write out the word "Read". This will likely become the focal piece my library is eventually designed around (I have a library... it's just currently very dark and lots o' paneling).

It's a beautiful name and I love the literary connection, however it'll be hilarious to see a kindergarten classroom with 12 Harpers in 2019. Sorry Posh Spice! #tokillamockingbird #harperlee
My friend Lauren just sent me the below Amazon link saying "You should get this after Lorelai is here". Tequila Mockingbird- Cocktails with a Literary Twist Now I want this book soooooo badly. Almost as badly as I want ALL THE DRINKS! This long, sober 9 months reminded me of the below exchange between Sookie and Lorelai from might be, arguably, my favorite Gilmore girls episode ever "They Shoot Gilmores, Don't They?" (aka The Dance Marathon- s 3: e 7).
Sookie: All of a s
