The Geometry of Love: Space, Time, Mystery, and Meaning in an Ordinary Church - Margaret Visser

Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley.


                Usually when I get approved on Netgalley, I try my best to write at least 250-500 words.  I find that for this book I cannot do so.


                Simply put: This is the best book I have ever read about a church or other building.

                I collect and read Pitkin guides as if they are going out of style.  But this book blasts them all to shame.  I pre-ordered a Kindle copy after reading the digital ARC.


                In this book Margaret Visser gives a complete guide to the church of Sant’Agnese di fuori Mura (in Rome).  Along the way, she deals with church history, art history, architectural history, feminism, martyrs, and ancient history.  It is brilliant. One would think a book of this length on such subject matter would be boring. 


                It’s not.  It’s sheer poetry.


                I never heard of this church before, and Visser makes you feel as if you there, but now I want – I need – to see it.


 If you interested in any of the above topics, please read this book.


I cannot thank Open Road Media enough for re-issuing this for Kindle and for allowing me to read a digital ARC.


                It’s magnificent.

Read It and Weep - Jenn McKinlay

Not much to say about this installment in the Library Lover's Mysteries.


Usually I don't care what the outcome of a mystery is; I just want to see how it all happens. The killer was obvious at the beginning of the book. That just made the rest of the book a behind the scenes look at the making of a community theater play.


Pythagoras of Samos would be disappointed to know that his theorem has been used in such an obtuse form between Lindsey, Sully and Robbie.


There were a few things left open at the end of this book.

What's up with Charlene's dad?

Is Robbie here to stay? Oh dear, WHY?

Will we get more Ian?

Does Lindsey's library have the latest addition of Heir to the Jedi by Kevin Hearne?


Because I really like Jenn McKinlay and am willing to go along for the ride, I'm going to have to read the next book to find out.

Book, Line and Sinker - Jenn McKinlay

How appropriate that I finished this book the day before International Talk Like A Pirate Day!


I wonder how annoyed people would be if I wrote my review in Pirate Speak...


I enjoyed almost everything about this book and this series.

The book was fast paced and had me reading while at work since I was more preoccupied with it than I was with the invoices I was wrapping up for the month.

The series keeps building upon itself without making me feel like I missed something in previous books. 


My only issue with this book in particular was with the romance.

The end of the book and the scene with Sully and Lindsay made my eye twitch. Okay fine, Mary explained how her brother's mind works, but it still didn't sound right.

What the hell, Sully?

John's appearance in this book was unnecessary in the first place. But if it was a reason to bring tension to Lindsay and Sully's relationship, I call shenanigans! 


Hmm, speaking of Love Geometry...

I wonder if this book was inspiration for the Love Rhombus in Sugar and Iced?
