Hello, I have returned! I have been extremely busy as a full-time work-from-home mom. I have been focusing on spending the little downtime I do have reading, with my daughter, and on my own. I honestly was struggling to think of where I wanted to go with my blog, so for a year, I posted nothing at all. But then I realized, this is my space, and it does not have to be super formal, and I do not have to write long form articles when I do not have the time to. So if you’re a reader, you’re in luck! I am going to be sharing brief reviews along with my cups of tea, of the very eclectic variety literature (and sometimes, board books) I tick of my TBR list.
The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels was unlike anything I’ve read before. In a good way. It’s a lot of fun, and they drink tons of pots of tea while getting into shenanigans fighting an evil captain who just happens to be the protagonist Cecilia’s estranged father. Lots of whimsy and great character chemistry (between Cecilia and a mysterious but caring pirate whose name might be Ned) that makes for a *swoon* romance. Cecilia’s aunt is also hilarious, and adds a lot of dimension to the story. If you love Jane Austen, but want a bit more adventure and general silliness, this historical fantasy might be your next favorite read. Five stars.
I finished this read in classic style, accompanied by a cup of earl grey, no cream or sugar.
Now, friend, tell me… what are you reading?
