WWW Wednesday, January 27

Well, my Green Bay Packers did not play their best in the NFC Championship Game this past Sunday, so no trip to the Super Bowl for them. But they had a much better season than I had anticipated, so hats off to them for the season they had. My Super Bowl party with just the family this year will be the usual: finger foods and eating in front of the TV, which I never normally allow.

It’s also WWW Wednesday, so let’s get to it:

What are you currently reading?

Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid (Amazon) I’m almost done with this one, I’m glad it’s a quick read as I feel like I’m behind on my reading and reviewing.

A gripping novel about the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer, revealing the mystery behind their infamous break up.

Hemingway’s Girl ($1.99 on Kindle right now) I just started this one on audio book and so far it’s a little slow. We’ll see if that picks up.

In Depression-era Key West, Mariella Bennet, the daughter of an American fisherman and a Cuban woman, knows hunger. Her struggle to support her family following her father’s death leads her to a bar and bordello, where she bets on a risky boxing match…and attracts the interest of two men: world-famous writer, Ernest Hemingway, and Gavin Murray, one of the WWI veterans who are laboring to build the Overseas Highway.

The Royal Nanny by Karen Harper ($2.99 on Kindle right now) Another audio book I’m listening to, this one has my attention because it’s about the King Edward VIII and King George VI when they were younger, as well as their younger siblings, especially John, the youngest, whom no one ever hears about because he died young.

April, 1897: A young nanny arrives at Sandringham, ancestral estate of the Duke and Duchess of York. She is excited, exhausted—and about to meet royalty. . . .

So begins the unforgettable story of Charlotte Bill, who would care for a generation of royals as their parents never could. Neither Charlotte—LaLa, as her charges dub her—nor anyone else can predict that eldest sons David and Bertie will each one day be king. LaLa knows only that these children, and the four who swiftly follow, need her steadfast loyalty and unconditional affection.

But the greatest impact on Charlotte’s life is made by a mere bud on the family tree: a misunderstood soul who will one day be known as the Lost Prince. Young Prince John needs all of Lala’s love—the kind of love his parents won’t…or can’t…show him.

The Sign in the Smoke (Nancy Drew Diaries #12) (Amazon),

The Romanov Empress: A Novel of Tsarina Maria Feodorovna (Amazon)

Barely nineteen, Minnie knows that her station in life as a Danish princess is to leave her family and enter into a royal marriage—as her older sister Alix has done, moving to  England to wed Queen Victoria’s eldest son. The winds of fortune bring Minnie to Russia, where she marries the Romanov heir, Alexander, and once he ascends the throne, becomes empress. When resistance to his reign strikes at the heart of her family and the tsar sets out to crush all who oppose him, Minnie—now called Maria—must tread a perilous path of compromise in a country she has come to love.

Her husband’s death leaves their son Nicholas as the inexperienced ruler of a deeply divided and crumbling empire. Determined to guide him to reforms that will bring Russia into the modern age, Maria faces implacable opposition from Nicholas’s strong-willed wife, Alexandra, whose fervor has led her into a disturbing relationship with a mystic named Rasputin. As the unstoppable wave of revolution rises anew to engulf Russia, Maria will face her most dangerous challenge and her greatest heartache.
