Weekly Reading Round-Up

Happy Friday, all! As the onslaught of pediatric plague continues (this week it was both kids home sick with cough, sore throat, and fever– I’ve really lost count of how many plagues we’ve had at this point), I took refuge in the third book in Elly Griffiths’s Harbinder Kaur series, Bleeding Heart Yard. In this…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

Happy Friday, all! Confession: I’m having trouble remembering what I’ve read recently.  I’ve been joking with friends that our long-running serial House of Plague has been going on for so long now that we’ve run out of new content and been reduced to reruns.  This week was “Norovirus: the Return!” otherwise known as “On the…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

Happy Friday, all! I started out the week with an oldie but goodie, Helen MacInnes’s The Venetian Affair, a Cold War thriller in which ordinary people find themselves swept up in startling conspiracies with repercussions for the fate of the free world.  This might possibly be my favorite MacInnes yet. I’m on double deadline right…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

In an unbroken streak of illness, my family is now on our seventh (7th!!) virus in seven weeks– and this time it’s Covid.  So I’ve turned heavily to the comfort reads as I’ve tried to parent while also not breathing on my kids, who miraculously seem not to have gotten it yet. A while ago,…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

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…
