Happy Friday, all!
Plague once again struck my household (fifth virus in six weeks! thank you, kids), so this is less of a round-up and more of a lone cow in the corral. In between taking temperatures and swabbing noses, I escaped to the world of the Checquy, the top secret organization responsible for supernatural matters in the United Kingdom, with the third book in Daniel O’Malley’s Rook Files series, Blitz.
This one was a little different from the first two, in that it was dual timeline: the Blitz, when the downing of a German plane over London has unpredictable and far-reaching consequences, and today, when a librarian with a husband and young child accidentally sets her kitchen on fire with lightning and finds herself plunged into the intricacies of England’s most secret of secret organizations.
I just finished Blitz this morning, and now I’m really not quite sure what to do with myself. Read the latest in Francine Mathews’s Merry Folger series? Revert to my regularly scheduled Trisha Ashley re-read? Go back and re-read The Rook? Find something I’ve forgotten about but really did mean to read in my vast TBR? Actually read one of the ARCs I’m meant to be blurbing? All suggestions welcome!
