Weekly Reading Round-Up

I don’t have anything fun to share this week, since I’ve mostly been living in the seventeenth century, reading up on the reign of Charles I, daily life in Stuart England, and Stuart court culture.  Not that that isn’t fun– I do adore the absurdity of life, and the seventeenth century was very good at absurdity.  But it’s not much in light reading.


I’ve promised myself some fiction time next week!

What have you been reading this week?

p.s. in other news, I’ll be posting the annual Pinkorama contest rules next week!  Stay tuned….

    I just started Deanna Raybourn’s A Dangerous Collaboration. This past week it was Back to You by Jessica Scott; she writes realistic books about our soldiers and how they cope. A Daring Arrangement by Joanna Shupe. Hot Winter Nights by Jill Shalvis. Someone to Trust by Mary Balogh; her stories have so much feeling and introspection. Arsenice With Austen: a new series from Katherine Bolger Hyde. And The Good Ones from Jenn McKinlay.

    I finished up my fun read of the new Robert Galbraith, yeah Lethal White! Though Career of Evil is still a favorite, this one was wonderful in that it shifted to be a very Inspector Morse like story by the end. Now I’m reading a selection for book club, it’s so bad I won’t mention it…

    Susan Dennard’s Bloodwitch, the fourth in the Witchlands series. So good!

    Finally got to Jennifer Robson’s The Gown. It’s an absolutely interesting read perfect for history nuts or fashion lovers( & The Crown Fans) Also rereading Geekerella by Ashley Poston. A must for all nerds! PS: You really ought to watch Yorgos Lanthimos’s The Favourite. Absurdity, court drama, & never ending wit through & through!
