A Beautiful Ending

"'No, I don't think I do, really... I just thought I did. But he didn't believe in me. He didn't know I was innocent.' She looked at Calgary. 'You knew! I think I'd like to marry you.'
'But, Hester, I'm years older than you are. You can't really-'
'That is- if you want me,' said Hester with sudden doubt.
'Oh, I want you!' said Arthur Calgary."

(This perfect scene- which makes much more sense and is much more beautiful if one has read Ordeal By Innocence by Agatha Christie- ends a fantastic book by having dynamic characters do dynamic things, and shows that even relatives and friends being murdered can bring people together. Let us all hope it does not come to that outside of literature.)

The Good Doctor

"The Murder of Roger Achroyd", by Agatha Christie, is without a doubt the strangest mystery I have ever read. I cannot spoil the ending for my dear readers, but I do promise them that no matter how smart they believe they are, they will not guess the murderer correctly.
Best of luck,

Magic in All of Us

Even if it isn't an official recommendation, I quite enjoy Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Shall I sing?
"Hogwarts, Hogwarts, hoggy warty Hogwarts, teach us something please."

Blue Ink Again

A blue ballpoint pen, and the eclectic authoress has a fake tattoo like the protagonist's real one in "Daughter of Smoke and Bone" by Laini Taylor.

The Eclectic Authoress Recommends...

3. Sherlock, the BBC television series

Tugging My Ear = Sounds Like

This picture sounds like we're all Romans, watching some poor soul try to fight a lion in the Colosseum, doesn't it? And all the while, it's only a young adult book-turned-movie series.
