Happy Friday, all! And happy April!
March was a jam-packed whirl of events, and while I loved every minute of it, I’m enjoying the chance to take a deep breath, clear my head a bit, get back to work on the new book– and do some fun reading!
A chance remark in a conversation with Kate Quinn made me think of Jodi Taylor’s One Damned Thing After Another, and the next thing I knew, I was deep in a Chronicles of St. Mary’s readathon, starting with Book IV, A Trail Through Time, and segueing right into Book V, No Time Like the Past.
For those who haven’t encountered the St. Mary’s books before, they chronicle the adventures of a group of tea-sodden disaster magnets (aka historians) as they careen up and down the timeline trying to observe historical events but generally getting sucked into them in various disastrous ways. They are such fun. The first book, One Damned Thing After Another, is particularly brilliant. And, of course, they’re the answer to every historian who has ever thought to herself, “If only I could go back in time and see what REALLY happened….”
What have you been reading this week?
p.s. for anyone who was wondering, I’ll be posting the Pink Carnation Month Three Read Along materials later today (The Deception of the Emerald Ring!). Apologies for the delay. I’m a bit behind on everything due to book tour, but I’m catching up, I promise!
