I’ve been chugging away on the 1927 book this week, interspersed with hanging out at the That Summer Read Along, so there hasn’t been that much leisure reading this week. But I have dipped into:
— Laurie King’s Pirate King, the eleventh in her Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes series. (As you can imagine, I’m feeling particularly warm and fuzzy about eleventh books in series just now.) This one is set around a 1924 film production about a production of The Pirates of Penzance. And that’s not a typo. It’s a story in a story in a story.
If you haven’t read these yet, you might want to go way back to the beginning and start at The Beekeeper’s Apprentice.
— Elsie Lee’s Season of Evil, because when I’m in lockdown work mode, there’s nothing like one of Elsie Lee’s sassy, fast-paced, 1960’s-set romantic suspense novels.
And for the same reason….
— Elsie Lee’s The Spy at the Villa Miranda, one of my Elsie Lee favorites, in which the recently divorced heroine goes on a tour of Greece with a retired college professor and finds herself plunged into Intrigue with a capital I.
What have you been reading this week?
