Thanks, Janet! I wish there was more to tell about this particular crush but it remains an unanswered question.

He let me wear his coat during class that day. It was brown corduroy lined with cream shearling. It was too big even for him but such was fashion in the 90s. Swaths of fabric pooled around my body. I pushed the thick sleeves back whenever I needed to take... Continue reading

I can only imagine how agonizing it was to watch that game! I winced while reading about it. I've added One Shot At Forever to my To Read list. Love that it's set in Illinois! Thanks for the recommendation.
I did know but I'd forgotten about it. Thank you!
A word regarding Ashley and Thorne's books: they are romance novels and there are sexy times so if you're looking for more of an implied romance a la Hallmark, best to keep going. I just don't want anyone to be shocked! I did listen to Mystery Show and liked a couple of the episodes. It wasn't really my thing. I don't think I've heard of anything similar either but it might be worth seeing what other shows Gimlet Media has up its sleeves. I don't listen to any food podcasts so I'm not any help there either! Sorry.
I feel like that's the only possible way anyone could read Heartless! It was literally breaking my heart.

Thanks for linking up, Alyssa! So glad you're as fascinated by that episode as I am.
I haven't read anything else by Maas so it's interesting to hear it's a regular plot device. Hoping to catch up on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend when I'm back in town next week!
Glad you appreciated it. :)
Sutro Baths, San Francisco What a mixed bag January has been. I'm trying to focus on the positive: time with good friends, banding together for the Women's March, and getting to go back to San Francisco for a few days. It rained most of my trip but there were a... Continue reading
