Weekly Reading Round-Up

I’m a little late with the round-up today because there isn’t much to round up.

I could blame it on working on the latest Team W chapter (did I mention that Team W is hard at work on our latest collaboration?), or on the kids going on bedtime strike, but it’s really less any of that, and more general distraction of the mind.  I’ve been picking up and putting down the same mystery novel all week, reading two pages, not remembering a word of what I’ve read, rinse, lather repeat.

So I’ve decided it’s time to break out the big guns.  I have been hoarding Red, White, & Royal Blue for months now in case of reading need– and I think the time has arrived, don’t you?

I’ll let you know how it is next week!  And whether this is the book that finally manages to hold my attention after a week of distraction.

What have you been reading this week?

    The latest (final) installment of Bernard Cornwell’s Last Kingdom series, War Lord, was great (only sad it’s the last one!).
    Looking about for next read, likely will start the prequel to Mary Kingswood’s next series (the Strangers series) titled Stranger at the Parsonage (Regency romance/mystery).

    I was having concentration problems this week as well, but I legit have a mild case of COVID, so I’m blaming that. I finished Sherry Thomas’s The Art of Theft, and while I didn’t love it, I enjoyed it. I think I only didn’t love it because of the difficulty in concentration, which I will again blame on COVID brain, not the writing itself. I’ve moved on to Christmas extravaganza. I’ve started the latest Meg Langslow Christmas book…The Gift of the Magpie. Hopefully the COVID fog will lift and I’ll be in the thick of it.

    I’m reading Gideon the Ninth because I finally got it from the library, and so far not worth the hype. Intergalactic necromancers with very poor worldbuilding…

    I just finished Tracy Grant’s new novella The Carfax Intrigue. I quite liked it – they remind a bit of Pink and the spy/intrigue parts. I’ve been reading her since she started the series and I still really like it over 15 books in. I’m also rereading Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness with my husband who is reading it for the first time and really enjoying it. It’s nice to find a book that we can overlap with our interests and just in time for the upcoming release of season 2 TV adaptation in January. Between A Discovery Of Witches and Bridgerton I will have my fill of TV soon!

    Rereading In Fairleigh Field by Rhys Bowen. I really enjoy her standalones mystery/historical fiction books.
