Waiting on Wednesday (36)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine to spotlight a blogger's eagerly anticipated new books.

For this Waiting on Wednesday, I picked Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron: A Graphic Novel.

Release Date: March 22, 2022

Book Summary: "A madcap romantic adventure, Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron has appeared in several Julia Quinn novels and enthralled some of her most beloved characters. Now this delicious tale of love and peril is available for everyone to enjoy in this wonderfully unconventional graphic novel.

Born into a happy family that is tragically ravaged by smallpox, Miss Priscilla Butterworth uses her wits to survive a series of outlandish trials. Cruelly separated from her beloved mother and grandmother, the young girl is sent to live with a callous aunt who forces her to work for her keep. Eventually, the clever and tenderhearted Miss Butterworth makes her escape . . . a daring journey into the unknown that unexpectedly leads her to the “mad” baron and a lifetime of love.

Delightfully illustrated by Violet Charles, told in Julia Quinn’s playful voice, Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron is a high-spirited nineteenth-century romp that will entertain and enchant modern readers."

My Thoughts: Ah yeah! I soooo, so very excited when I learned that Julia Quinn was releasing a graphic novel. Foremost, because I am a historical romance nerd and graphic novel fangirl, so the two crossing over is the perfect combo for me. And, I feel like they rarely cross over; although there are some cute, fluffy Harlequin romance comics out there, but that's about it. Secondly, I already love Julia Quinn's sense of humor. So far, the book looks and sounds delightfully silly. Personally, I hope to see more Regency themed comics in the future. Hey, just through it out there, I would totally read a Bridgerton manga adaptation!
