Weekly Reading Round-Up

It’s been a very seasonal week for me. I finished up a re-read of Trisha Ashley’s A Winter’s Tale, skipped spring, and went straight on to Jamie Brenner’s The Forever Summer, a multi-stranded narrative set in a B&B in Cape Cod about finding family and oneself. Because sometimes you just need a little summer in the middle of winter….

But mostly I’ve been running around signing copies of The English Wife!

I’m so grateful to everyone who came out for the launch of The English Wife at the Corner Bookstore in New York this past week, and to the lovely people at all the New York Barnes & Nobles.

You can find me tomorrow (Saturday) in Georgia at FoxTale Book Shoppe with Karen White; on Sunday in Scottsdale at the Poisoned Pen Bookstore with Tasha Alexander and Deanna Raybourn; and on Wednesday in Houston at Murder by the Book with Tasha and Deanna (Charlie’s Angels are together again!).

If you would like a signed copy, but can’t make it to any of the tour stops, the good folks at FoxTale, the Poisoned Pen, or Murder by the Book would be more than happy to oblige. If you contact them before my appearance, they’ll have me sign your book while I’m there and then ship it out to you, whether you’re the next county away or in Timbuktu.

If you already have/ have ordered a copy, but would like it signed, just email me at willig@post.harvard.edu with “Bookplate” in the header, and I will be more than happy to pop a signed bookplate in the mail to you.

And now back to our regularly scheduled Weekly Reading Round-Up….

What have you been reading this week?

    Still reading Allison Pataki’s “Sisi: Empress on her own”…. but I have “The English Wife” arriving on Monday!! Hooray for Monday!!!

    Just started The English Wife on my lunch break…sadly I did not get to take the afternoon off so I could continue the book. Sigh.

    Reading “The Bear and the Nightingale,” which is well worthy of the hype!
    Hoping to see you at The Poisoned Pen Sunday (and purchase copy of The English Wife at the same time!)

    I’ve been in a major reading slump this week, so instead of reading I’m finally watching the newest season of Outlander.

  5. Betty Strohecker on January 13, 2018 at 11:42 am

    Still reading The Ladies of Ivy Cottage (regency) with Lynne and Suzanne and enjoying our discussion.
    Also, about to finish At the Christmas Wedding – three regency novellas written by three different authors and tied together by the same Christmas party at a snowbound castle. What’s not to like?

  6. Jean on January 13, 2018 at 12:22 pm

    Finished Beartown and started The Stolen Marriage by Diane Chamberlain.

  7. Angie on January 13, 2018 at 12:46 pm

    I just finished a charming little novel called “The Blue Moon Circus” by Michael Raleigh. It’s about a middle aged circus man who, despite a string of bad luck, sets about putting together what he thinks is his one last show. He also has to look after a little orphan boy who adores him. It will leave you with a smile.
