Can’t Wait Wednesday: A Catalogue of Catastrophe by Jodi Taylor

Science fiction, adventure, time travel, history, good characters, good story telling

Can’t Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months. So I have a while to wait!

I love finding out about books set to publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog.

A Catalogue of Catastrophe

by Jodi Taylor

Series: The Chronicles of St. Mary’s #13

Published by Headline

Publishing date: April 14

Genre: Science Fiction, Time Travel, Historical Fiction

416 pages

Synopsis: When all is lost. When everything is ending. When there’s no hope. When you can’t win. That’s when you attack.

Punching well above their weight, Max and Markham set out to bring down a sinister organisation whose roots might be firmly embedded in the future but whose focus is the past.

Max’s focus is staying alive long enough to reunite with Leon and Matthew – alternately helped and hindered by St Mary’s. Who aren’t always the blessing they like to think they are.

And that’s not all. Are the effects of constantly leaping around the timeline beginning to make themselves felt? Is Max going mad? Or are the ghosts of the past finally catching up with her?

………………………………..

This series is one of my favorites though I’m several books behind. I hope to read a few more of the books this year.

If you haven’t read any books in this series you should start with book 1, because lots has happened since that first book!

Sunday Post: Birthday

Connecting with others to talk about books plus a little about our personal lives

Sunday-Post

Kimberly hosts the Sunday Post each week. I like to take part because it gives me an opportunity to look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also love to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading.

Personal life

My kids are all here to celebrate my February birthday. What a treat and birthday present that is! So fun to be together. I went to the doctor earlier in the week and the doctor removed my stitches. I got a new bandage for my hand so more of my fingers are out of the bandage.

Blog

I have orders to use my fingers more so I hope to get more posts done and do more blog visiting.

Sunday Post: Cold, snow and sun

Personal life

We got a big snow storm towards the end of this week. I think we got a little more than eight inches of snow. However, it was hard to get an accurate measurement since the wind was blowing hard during the storm and there was lots of drifting snow. After the snow stopped, it turned very cold with temperatures near zero each night and bright clear cold sunny days.

An accident

I did not post last week because I tripped and fell resulting in a black eye, broken glasses, a bruised face and two broken bones in my dominant right hand. I had surgery on Tuesday to put 3 pins in the bones on my right hand (held in place by a cast). I am already tired of having this cast, but will probably have it for the next 6 to 8 weeks (which will limit my ability to post each week). My face is still bruised and turning different colors!

A thank you

Thank you to my husband for typing a lot of this post for me and for all he’s doing now: cooking, grocery shopping, feeding the cats, cleaning the litter box and so much more!

Television

Since there are a number of things I can’t do at the moment I’ve watched more TV than usual. We’re watching David Tennant in Around the World in 80 Days. So far we’ve watched four episodes and we’re enjoying it. We have Acorn TV and are watching several shows we’re enjoying: Kingdom, Murdoch, Madame Blanc and Dalgliesh. We’ve also watched some of the Olympics.

Blog

I won’t do many posts the next few weeks or comment on many blogs since typing with my left hand doesn’t work so well! My left hand and arm are already sore at being used so much
