    Regarding the link to the Room of One’s Own list of “Top ten authors I wished would have written a second book” — I see Jillain mentions Charlotte and Anne Bronte. I just read an amazing book “Becoming Jane Eyre” by Sheila Kohler. It follows the Bronte sisters from the years 1846 through 1854. It is a fictional biography – true to the major milestones in their lives but fictionalized as to their day to day lives/conversations etc.. Great read for Bronte fans.

    1. Oooooh definitely gonna remember that title! Thanks Valerie! Are you attending the Madison conference again?

        I hope to, but I haven’t decided yet. It would make a lot of sense if I have finished my middle-grade novel by then.

  3. I love the BBC Being Human- I need to find season 2!

    1. I couldn’t get into that one, and then what do you suppose I got caught up watching a mini marathon of last night….

  4. Great lineup, Jess! I’ve got to get over to Catie’s! Thanks for the shout out, but it was your’s and Patrcia’s posts that made the celebration! I can’t wait to hear how you like Angelology. I thought about reading it at one time, but then forgot about it.

    1. Thank you again for honoring me and Patricia at your blog, Marcia. You really are the hostess with the mostest!

      Angelology is starting to pick up now that I’m 100 pages in and have had more than 10 minutes to sit down and read at a time! Be sharing soon.

  5. Thanks for the shout out, Jess! I’m honored to be listed among such fabulous links.

    (Can’t believe I missed Marcia’s Woman’s Day post! Whew, thanks for saving me… ;))

    1. Loving the new trends you’ve set up for your blog, August! Keep em comin!

  6. Hey Jess, shameless self-promotion is what we writers do! Thanks for mentioning our appearance on Marcia’s fab blog – so much fun getting to know you there.

    1. Loved being paired with you Patricia! Let’s do it again soon!

  7. GREAT list, Jess! And thank you so much for including my Being Human blog post. I hope you do give it another go. SyFy is airing it marathon-style today in preparation for the season two premiere tonight. I have it on in the other room…

    1. You were right, I got sucked in. Get it, sucked…. LOL. Ok, I’m done.

  8. Excellent list. I see more than one great looking post that I’ve missed reading. Now I have my rewards for break times today.

    1. Ooh that’s a great idea, I’ll keep that in mind. You are so disciplined.

  9. Cool list, Jess. Thanks for the link love, glad you enjoyed the post 🙂
