Weekly Reading Round-Up

Happy Friday, all!  I hope everyone had a wonderful, safe, and happy holiday. A chance re-encounter with a Victoria Holt novel last week set me off on a mad Victoria Holt kick, and ever since then I’ve been wallowing in all the 6th grade feels with plucky schoolmistresses, brooding hero/villains, and wonderfully improbable plots.  I…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

Happy weekend, all!  Apologies for being a bit late with the round up this week– I’m on deadline for the Cuba book and back in quarantine with one of the small people.  Which I suppose is strangely appropriate since the heroine of the Cuba book is also currently in quarantine?  At least we don’t have…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

Happy Friday, all!  We’ve suddenly gone from rain to sun in New York, and it’s starting to feel like it might actually be May after all.  (Which is shocking.  How is it May already?  I need at least a month back….) In the meantime, this has been an excellent reading week, with a mix of…

This week, I continued my Miss Silver marathon, with the rather disappointing The Vanishing Point, but made up…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

Happy Friday, all! So many thanks to everyone who zoomed in with me this week with Cary Memorial Library and Warren Newport Public Library— it was lovely seeing you! In reading news, I’ve been binge-reading Jodi Taylor’s St. Mary’s series about tea-sodden, disaster prone, time traveling historians.  This week has been books two and three,…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

Hello from the train to DC!  I’m headed to historical fiction nirvana: the Historical Novel Society Conference where well over a hundred historical fiction authors are gathering to talk shop and share their favorite gossip from centuries past. It only seems appropriate to read some historical fiction on the way to HNS, so I’m currently…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

This week, I had two sick kids at home, so I decided to save my shiny new ARCs of The Golden Hour and Milady for when I have sufficient brain cells to enjoy them, and, instead, resorted to my exceedingly well-worn copy of Dorothy Sayers’s Busman’s Honeymoon, in which Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane…
