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.

Garden Spells - Sarah Addison Allen I liked this book. A lot. As in, when I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about reading it, which to me is the sign of a good book.

The southern setting--North Carolina, to be exact--is rendered lushly if a bit idyllically, and the story was well crafted. The magical realism--not usually my thing--was done masterfully.

I'll be revisiting this one at some point.

ETA: Yep, reread it. Possibly loved it more the second time.
