Every now and then, it’s nice to revisit old books as a sort of literary palette cleanser, in this case, some of my less read books by favorite authors. This week, I dipped into Georgette Heyer’s The Unknown Ajax (which was so much better than I remembered it being!) and The Toll-Gate, and then stopped by 1920s London with Lord Peter Wimsey for a spot of Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club.
The real find this week, though, was an advance copy of a book coming out in September: The Way to London by Alix Rickloff, in which a spoiled twenty-something child of privilege finds herself on the run through blitzed Britain with a London street urchin and a strangely attractive mechanic. (Once I’m done with it, I’ll put it up for grabs here on the website, since it’s too good not to share.)
In the meantime, I know what I’m going to be reading tomorrow! The manuscript of the second Three W’s book, aka The Lusitania Book, aka Someday Our Title Will Come.
Karen White, Beatriz Williams, and I will be meeting up in our latest top secret bat cave to give the book a good going over– and plot the next one! We’ll be sharing important updates from our retreat (like what we’re drinking, and who brought the most luggage– cough cough, Karen, cough cough) on our Willig, White, and Williams Facebook page.
What have you been reading this week?
