Good books (2.5 to 3.5)

One must tell the Bees, by J. Lawrence Matthews

3.5 out of 5 stars. A great Holmes novel with a really bad pacing problem. And way too much details.

Top Tier (4 to 5 stars)

North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell

Who doesn’t love to watch Richard Armitage raise his eyebrow and give you THAT LOOK!?!
