Hello friends! Happy Sunday. I hope you are having a lovely day and if you live in the South are enjoying some air conditioning. Some days I am insanely grateful that I live now and not a hundred years ago - cause this weather plus all those clothes would just be too much. No wonder they were fainting all the time! :) As for my non-Victorian outfit - simple clothes + cute sandals + statement necklace = my go to summer outfit. I got this skirt which is just adorable and comfy last year for $3 on super clearance and I swear I remember it being shorter. Hmmmm. Did I shrink? I sure hope not, cause I was short enough to begin with. I really don't need to be shorter. And the braid - friends, I have not worn my hair like this since my summer youth camp days over 15 years ago. I have to say, as much of a pain as it is to do, I remember why I did it. It is so nice to have all your hair up and away from your neck and face and still have it look 'done'.

Now, on to other things. I just finished re-reading (for at least the fifth or sixth time) a book by one of my favorite authors - All That Glitters by Linda Howard. It is awesome. She is awesome. There is nothing more to say. Really. The tension, the conflict, the romance, the dialogue, the writing, the ending - all just marvelous. Linda Howard is one of my all time favorite authors. If you haven't tried one of her books and you enjoy romance and suspense and good writing, you have to try one. Any one will do, they are all excellent. I believe that All That Glitters was her first novel, published in 1982. I'll skip the review this time, but look for reviews on my favorite titles by Linda at a later date. I need to go re-read them again now. :) Unfortunately she only publishes one book a year these days- trust me that just isn't enough! Now, go read one and let me know what you think!
Happy Reading (or not, if you prefer)!
