    1. Omg I’m so happy to hear that you love it too, Rachel!! You’re right that The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets is rarely mentioned anywhere (which is such a shame). It’s so charming and one of my favorite comfort reads.

      Have you read the semi-sequel The Misinterpretation of Tara Jupp? I recently finished it and really enjoyed it, although not quite as much as Lost Art.

      1. I read it a couple of times when I was a teenager but I really want to read it again at some point as an adult, it is just such a delight of a book. I didn’t even know there was a semi-sequel though! I’ll have to look that up. Is it the same characters?

      2. There are a bunch of new characters- including a new protagonist- but several characters from Lost Art have quick cameos. Inigo (Penelope’s younger brother) is a main character/love interest as well.

  1. Have you read Circe yet? I’ve seen it around so much and I do have it on my TBR pile but somehow it never finds its way to the top.
    Romantic Outlaws sounds good too. I keep saying I want to try a bit more non-fiction.
    Thanks for linking back 🙂

    1. Yes, and I absolutely loved and devoured it! I hope you’ll enjoy it just as much when you do get to it.

      Romantic Outlaws is a VERY readable nonfiction book. It’s so dramatic and gripping and reads like a novel. I highly, highly recommend it.

  2. Romantic Outlaws: The Extraordinary Lives of Mary Wollstonecraft & Mary Shelley sounds really really intriguing, and I love swimming so I’ve always had my eye on the Lido ever since it came out.

    1. Yay! I’m always so excited when I find someone who’s read and loved it too. The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets is one of my favorite comfort reads, and it doesn’t get nearly as much attention as I think it deserves.
      Have you read Rice’s semi-sequel: The Misinterpretation of Tara Jupp? Several characters from Lost Art make an appearance and it is adorable.

  3. No, I haven’t read anything else by her. I think it’s partially a sort of ‘guilty secret’ because of the cover. The friend who passed it on to me was almost embarrassed to be doing so!

    1. There were things I liked about How to Stop Time, but ultimately I was pretty disappointed in it as a novel. I think I may stick with Matt Haig’s nonfiction in the future. That said, it may be worth reading if you are able to borrow it, but I wouldn’t spend money on it.
