Gaudy Night (Lord Peter Wimsey, #12)Gaudy Night by Dorothy L. Sayers


I am not sure how many times I have read this book but it never gets old. It is the first book to introduce me to Oxford in such glorious detail. I have been hungry for more info ever since, that was a long time ago. I didn’t get to visit Oxford when I went to the UK, I had little time but I wish I did.

It also finally gives me the ending I wanted between Peter and Harriet, yes there was a tangle of a mystery that they had to solve and it was a mind bender of chore. But the romance really was tested in this one, and I enjoyed both the emotion and the intellect involved in it.

In fact I think it is fascinating that we are still facing this question of how a woman should be in the 21st century. It is such a strange thing, no one questions if a man can be both heart and mind, even though it is just as much a battle (sometimes more so) for a man as it is for a woman. It poses some questions that still ring true today.

As usual Dorothy Sayers pulls your brain apart in several different directions and throws in languages that most people don’t know like Latin and Greek. At least I understood the French. The world has changed I remember the first time I went to the library to get the translations and now I just plug them into Google.

Sayers challenges you but she gives you the pleasure of a good hunt, with some lovely romance thrown in. Very much worth it, especially with the world as it is right now.

But it was so personal and special I decided to do it on Sherri’s Playhouse. It is a very short re-imagining of the founding of my family in the US. It will be broadcast on Sept 29th at 8pm pt.

Reviews for latest reads;

Partners in Crime (Tommy and Tuppence #2)Partners in Crime by Agatha Christie

I do not have an accurate count of how many times I have read this wonderful romp. It is my go to book for a troubled heart. I really defy anyone who is down in the mouth, to read one of the short stories in this and not to be touched or smiling at the antics of Tuppence and Tommy. One of my favorites.

 

I, Samantha, Take This Mortal, DarrinI, Samantha, Take This Mortal, Darrin by Adam-Michael James

I really enjoyed this thoughtful closing to a wonderful series. The author who has been a guest on my show and is truly an expert on Bewitched and describes the universe of Samantha and Darrin beautifully. He has created a wonderful two-part ending of the series. He brings back a lot of favorites and delightfully explains anything that the fans might have had questions on through the years of the show. I have loved Bewitched since I was a tiny little girl and I still love it, it’s a definite must for any Bewitched fan.
