Merry, merry, all!
We’ve had cracked tooth drama with my rambunctious toddler, so reading time has been scarce (do you think Santa can deliver reading time? Also possibly a toddler front tooth, while he’s at it), but I did manage to steal a few hours with Zen Cho’s The True Queen, which is just as compulsively readable as her first book, Sorcerer to the Crown. Think Georgette Heyer with magic, or Patricia Wrede’s Mairelon the Magician, in an alternate Regency England where the knee breeches are just as de riguer for Almack’s, but there’s also a vigorous (and very snobby) magical community dead set against young ladies practicing magic.
Right now, I’ve just started Allison Pearson’s I Don’t Know How She Does It, which I am loving with an insane love.
In an otherwise rather stressful week, one bright spot has been seeing Mistletoe popping up all over the place! No, not that kind of mistletoe. The Mischief of the Mistletoe! It warms my heart to see Turnip still out and about after all these years, and I owe such thanks to, among others, Watertown Regional Library, the Book Faries of Ottowa, Kat Reads Kissing Books, and the Lit B*tch for making the week so festive and bright.
What have you been reading this week?
