Picking up where A Discovery of Witches leaves off, the second volume of the All Souls Trilogy is just as adventurous and magical as its predecessor. After travelling through time, newlyweds Diana and Matthew find themselves in Elizabethan London. Though Matthew, a vampire, remembers 1591 like it was yesterday, witch Diana is out of her element, used to technology and definitely not used to wearing a corset. She must adapt to the Queen’s England quickly because it is still up to her to protect the magical world that may or may not be a secret from humans.

The history of American prohibition has long been linked to major cities like New York and Chicago, leaving the rich story of the DC temperance movement long overlooked until now. Local historian Garrett Peck takes readers on a tour of the city, beginning at the usually forgotten Temperance Fountain and snaking a path through government buildings, spectacular mansions, and city squares that tell the story of just exactly how dry we weren’t. Many of these sights still stand today and I encourage you to grab a beer and take a step back in time to one of our nation’s most famous failed experiments.

Places where, while reading this book, my belly laugh drew attention from strangers: the E4 to Friendship Heights, Panera, the back of an Uber, the front of an Uber, the waiting room at my endocrinologist’s office. Let me tell you, dear reader, this book is funny as heck.  In this collection of essays Philpott discusses her life as a genuinely funny person; from getting married, to raising children, to analyzing the clothing choices of celebrities. This delightful and entertaining memoir also prominently features a lobsterman, a snake wedding, and an exploding dog butt. Just trust me and read this book, OK?
