I’m back.Â I was AWOL last week because of the husband’s hospital drama.Â He’s home now and feeling a bit better but without a whole lot of answers.
Finished This Week
What Am I Reading?
I’ve been having a hard time settling into any books.Â This is doing the best job of holding my attention so far. I picked it because it was a book with a verb in the title for The Reading Quest and it was on my ipad.Â
“On her 25th birthday, Charlotte Appleby receives a most unusual gift from the Faerie godmother she never knew she had: the ability to change shape.
Penniless and orphaned, she sets off for London to make her fortune as a man. But a position as secretary to Lord Cosgrove proves unexpectedly challenging. Someone is trying to destroy Cosgrove and his life is increasingly in jeopardy.”
It is a Regency romance with faeries!
What Am I Listening To?
I picked this one to see what all the fuss was about.Â I’m loving it.
“Henry â€œMontyâ€ Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father havenâ€™t been able to curb any of his roguish passionsâ€”not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.
But as Monty embarks on his Grand Tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the familyâ€™s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.
Still it isnâ€™t in Montyâ€™s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Montyâ€™s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt that spans across Europe, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.“
