You could never mistake the sound of grief, once you had felt it yourself. It made the mettle of the soul ring in sympathy, like one bell softly chiming whenever its neighbor was struck.

It’s Tuesday, and here’s what I’m currently reading:
The Duchess War by Courtney Milan
Blurb: A bespectacled wallflower meets a Duke and figures out what he’s up to. Has the Duke met his match?
I just started reading The Duchess War today. (Despite holiday obligations with family, I still plan to read as much as I can.)
This is my first book by Courtney Milan, a romance author beloved by many readers. It certainly won’t be my last!
The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics by Olivia Waite
Blurb: As Lucy Muchelney watches her ex-lover’s sham of a wedding, she wishes herself anywhere else. It isn’t until she finds a letter from the Countess of Moth, looking for someone to translate a groundbreaking French astronomy text, that she knows where to go. Showing up at the Countess’ London home, she hoped to find a challenge, not a woman who takes her breath away.
I was super excited about The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics when I first heard about it. Historical romance novels featuring female/female pairings are fairly rare in my experience. An f/f historical romance featuring an astronomer heroine? Count me in.
Happy holidays to those who celebrate! What are you currently reading?
