Stuck-in-a-Book's Weekend Miscellany

It's been a little while since I did one of these... and this one's going to be brief, because the painkillers I'm on for endless headaches have made me very sleepy!  (They're not especially heavy-duty painkillers, but... well, maybe I have a predisposition to sleepiness. It's been noted before.)

1.) The book - is The Matriarch by G.B. Stern, which Daunt Books sent me a day or two ago - I've been wanting to read some of her fiction for ages, and this is a great opportunity in a lovely edition.

2.) The link - oh, just Buzzfeed. I spend my life there now.

3.) The blog post - Washington Wife has put up another two hilarious posts - read 'em here and here.


  1. I've yet to read any Stern, but that Daunt cover looks lovely!

    (Hope the headaches get sorted - have you had your eyes tested recently?)

  2. I'm sorry to hear about the headaches - I suffer from those as well, and they can be so draining.

    I came across a copy of The Matriarch Chronicles at a used-bookstore, and though I've only read one of G.B. Stern's books, I couldn't resist it (the story of my life & my TBR stacks).

  3. What an extraordinarily clever cover design!

  4. I am rarely swayed by a cover but oh dear, I am so tempted by 1)

  5. I want to read The Matriarch based on the cover alone!


I've now moved to, and all my old posts are over there too - do come and say hello :)

I probably won't see your comment here, I'm afraid, but all my archive posts can also be found at
