Vellichor Afternoons

I like trip-hop, anachronism, cats, both coffee and tea, the sound of rain on a tin roof, antique keys, pop culture as a substitute for religion, theatre, photography, Oxford commas, and, of course, reading.

The Spellman Files (Spellman Files Series #1)

The Spellman Files  - Lisa Lutz I ADORED this book.

It's a mystery, but saying that seems so reductive. It's really a story about family, the kind you both love, despise, and blackmail, though good-naturedly.

It's also a story of a very snarky young woman, one whose voice is so clear and so darkly comic that I found myself laughing aloud repeatedly. Isabel Spellman, middle child and PI at Spellman Investigations, is irreverent, clever, and slightly insane. Which is to say--I adore her.

Can't wait to rip through the other books in this series. GOD, I love a series.
