Hello from House of Plague!
With two poor little ones hit hard by Influenza A, I’ve mostly been reading the dosage guidelines on the sides of the Children’s Motrin bottles. But when I’ve been able to get away from sponging brows and wiping noses, I’ve been reading M.L. Longworth’s Death at the Chateau Bremont. I adored the new tv series based on the books, and I’ve been fascinated by the way the two diverge– it’s a master class on how a book can be adapted and changed while still keeping its character. Maybe it’s just France and all the food descriptions, but this reminds me a fair bit of Martin Walker’s Bruno books, which I also found reliable reads when I was otherwise distracted.
And now it’s time for book tour! I have my Kindle loaded with ARCs to read on all the upcoming plane and train rides (and just possibly a Jenny Colgan or two, since I always read Jenny Colgan on book tour– it’s a personal tradition.)
What have you been reading this week?
