Top Ten Characters I want to Check in With

Top Ten Tuesday is a wicked awesome meme brought to us all by the clever ladies at The Broke and the Bookish.

I love love love stories that end on a happy note. Sometimes life is really tough, and things don't always go the way we want, so I especially enjoy books with a happy ending for characters to whom I've become attached. But as much as I like neat little endings, I also want to know how the rest of their lives go!

Throwback Thursday #4 - The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen

The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen
Pages: 273

Publisher: Bantam
Publication Date: March 22, 2011
Genre: Magical Realism
Source: Purchased

Synopsis (from Goodreads): The New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Who Chased the Moon welcomes you to her newest locale: Walls of Water, North Carolina, where the secrets are thicker than the fog from the town’s famous waterfalls, and the stuff of superstition is just as real as you want it to be.

It’s the dubious distinction of thirty-year-old Willa Jackson to hail from a fine old Southern family of means that met with financial ruin generations ago. The Blue Ridge Madam—built by Willa’s great-great-grandfather during Walls of Water’s heyday, and once the town’s grandest home—has stood for years as a lonely monument to misfortune and scandal. And Willa herself has long strived to build a life beyond the brooding Jackson family shadow. No easy task in a town shaped by years of tradition and the well-marked boundaries of the haves and have-nots.

Waiting on Wednesday: Miss Mayhem by Rachel Hawkins

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, my grubby little hands (they're not really grubby... I wash them all the time) are itching for a copy of Miss Mayhem by Rachel Hawkins! I just finished Rebel Belle earlier this week, so I'm especially looking forward to April 7 now!
