Please allow me a few moments to preen like a peacock.   I recently insisted, prodded, maybe kinda sorta forced my friend to make a Goodreads account.  When she looked at my page, she was slightly intimidated by the number of books that I have read (421).  That number includes novels, comic books, manga, audiobooks, and oh how I wished it counted fanfiction.  But yes I am very proud of that number, and I want to know if you use goodreads, or any similar site, how many books do you have recorded as being read? Or how did you keep track of the books you’ve read before using those websites (I went by memory for a few pre-computer years and then a word document)? ~E


Most Read Authors

How are you! I hope you are doing well.  I had a quick question for you?  How many of you use Goodreads?  Because I absolutely love it.  I only wished I had discovered the site sooner!  One of the features that I use is the Most read Authors.  I wanted to share my list, and please leave a reply so I can see yours.  (The list shows the top 10, or those authors who I’ve read 5 books or more)


Book 30: Penelope

23 Mar

penelopePenelope by Anya Wylde

Well first off, I gotta give props to Anya for contacting/befriending me through goodreads. She saw that I read a lot of Regency Romance and graciously decided to let me read her story for free. 🙂

And with that let me continue to blurb.

Ahaha only on the second page and I’m loving Anne’s overactive imagination in explaining Penelope’s lateness. I can see I’m going to like her already. This book was filled with such a quirky story and I loved it. It was very fluffy and I had quite a few “I’m smiling like an idiot” moments. It read like some of my favorite romcoms, plot and action wise, and had those playful scenes that make the story so comical/enjoyable. My favorite scene was the balcony scene. When Penelope “fainted” and then when Charles called her out on it and of course infuriated her. Her trying to choke him afterward. Hilarious.


“It is monstrously unfair that whenever a girl needs her wits about her, she goes and does something completely idiotic. Penelope was that sort of girl.” (8)

“It was their right to learn his past, dissect his personality and gossip about his latest attachments.” (16) ahh the duties of a Gossip Queen


“Penelope dusted her skirts and smoothed her hair. “I swooned and then attempted to murder the duke. Shall we return indoors?”” (162)
