The Sunday Salon: Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia of Faeries and Rhododendron Pie

I finished two good novels last week. One is Rhododendron Pie by Margery Sharp, a novel first published in 1930. The other is Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia of Faeries by Heather Fawlett, a fantasy published a couple of weeks ago. The two books were very different stories, but they were both completely charming. 

Emily Wilde's Encyclopaedia of Faeries by Heather Fawlett (Fantasy)
Rhododendron Pie by Margery Sharp (Fiction)
George Eliot in Love by Brenda Maddox (Biography)

Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard (Nature)
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (Classic)
Daily Rituals: How Artists Work by Mason Currey (Writing)
Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt (Novel)

Last week I posted here at Readerbuzz:

Oprah selected Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole by Susan Cain as the most recent selection of her book club. I found a copy at my library, happily. In the first chapter, "What is Sadness Good For?" Cain recommends a short video produced by the Cleveland Clinic to instill empathy in its caregivers. Whew. It's heartwrenching.

I never expected the azaleas to recover from
the Christmas freeze and begin to bloom at their normal time mid-February.

I'm going to the Texas Library Association Conference this year. 
Happy day!

I'm happy you joined us here at the Sunday Salon. Sunday Salon is a place to link up and to share what we have been doing during the week. It's a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there. 

Some of the things we often talk about at the Sunday Salon:
