I had a really bad month, I started well but then got completely side tracked by needing stuff my tired brain could cope with. Which meant that I bought and romped through all the Chronicles of St Mary’s short stories and then I read Grey Sister which got it off the TBR list but then I bought the last book in the trilogy and romped through that.
I’ve also been on another Kindle TBR purge, if I wasn’t interested in after I’d read 10% of it, off it went. The TBR is now at Kindle 46, books 29 for a total of 75. Which feels more realistic…
So the St Mary’s books. They are lovely and easy without making me feel stupid and they make me laugh out loud..
The Steam Pump Jump – Jodi Taylor
My Name is Markam – Jodi Taylor
And Now For Something Completely Different – Jodi Taylor
Ships and Stings and Wedding Rings – Jodi Taylor
Christmas Present – Jodi Taylor
I really enjoyed both of them. I like the way she comes to terms with who, what and how she is. I also like that it solves the big issue but doesn’t save the world, the things that are wrong with the world are still wrong. But Nona is a changed person and she stopped a war.
Ok this has most of the things that I don’t like about Singh, but also all of the things I do like about her particular version of book crack. It also has adoption, diversity and is really sweet.
Yay for 40 something heroines. She’s also plus size but that matters less to me than her age. I really enjoyed this.
The Austen Playbook – Lucy Parker
This felt more British than the last two did which made me happy, it was fun, I like everyone in this world…
Both re-reads, both as fun as ever..
