Weekly Reading Round-Up

Happy Friday, all!

Don’t you hate it when you finish a really brilliant series (or what there currently is of it) and then you have to decide whether you want to immediately re-read it or slink off to read something else?

I finished The Last Graduate, Book II in Naomi Novik’s incredibly immersive Scholomance series, and now there are months– months, I tell you!– until the third and final book.

So I’ve been sulkily reading old Charlotte MacLeod novels, which is what I tend to do these days when I don’t know what to read.  Her Sarah Kelling and Janet Rhys books are old friends, but I’ve discovered, in our age of old books being available on Kindle and not just scrounged in used bookshops, that she wrote many, many other books I never knew about.  So I tried the first in her Grub & Stakers series, The Grub and Stakers Move a Mountain, about a rather idiosyncratic town where everyone has archery experience, and found it unexpectedly charming.  I also tried her stand alone, The Terrible Tide, which I had been looking forward to since it sounded so old school Barbara Michaels-ish, and found it unexpectedly not charming.

I think I’ve hit that point where comfort reads become more annoying than comforting (it happens), and it’s time to turn to pastures new– but first I have to re-read The Lure of the Moonflower for next week’s read along!

What have you been reading this week?

    I finished Eloisa James’s “My American Duchess” which was much fun and am now in the land of Lisa Kleypas’s Wallflowers. Also on the docket, “The Lure of the Moonflower!”
