Huzzah for uninterrupted airplane reading! This week, as I flew back and forth from Team W’s retreat, I managed to get in some pure leisure reading, including:
— the latest in Lucy Parker’s London Celebrities contemporary romance series, The Austen Playbook, about a choose your own adventure Austen production gone wrong (or gone right, depending on how one looks at it), and various familial secrets that come out along the way’;
— The Sword in the Stone, in The Once and Future King, which is always a joy– how can one not love Sir Ector being an old tilting blue, claiming that the wars were won upon the playing fields of Camelot?– although the copy I have on my Kindle cuts the scene with the witch for some inexplicable reason, which is just wrong;
— and now I’m reading Jasmine Guillory’s The Wedding Date, a clever, light-hearted contemporary romance, because I have learned that when my college roommate says “you must read this”, she’s generally right. Okay, always right.
And speaking of my college roommate, I’m heading back to New Haven for my mumble-mumble college reunion this weekend! My publisher and the Yale Bookstore have teamed up to make copies of The Summer Country available– a week pre-pub! So if you’re in the area and want to get an early crack at The Summer Country, stop by the Yale Bookstore this weekend.
What have you been reading this week?
