Full Moon
Full Moon: (Blandings Castle) | P.G. Wodehouse
17 posts | 10 read | 9 to read
A Blandings novel When the moon is full at Blandings, strange things happen: among them the commissioning of a portrait of The Empress, twice in succession winner in the Fat Pigs Class at the Shropshire Agricultural Show. What better choice of artist, in Lord Emsworth's opinion, than Landseer. The renowned painter of The Stag at Bay may have been dead for decades, but that doesn't prevent Galahad Threepwood from introducing him to the castle - or rather introducing Bill Lister, Gally's godson, so desperately in love with Prudence that he's determined to enter Blandings in yet another imposture. Add a gaggle of fearsome aunts, uncles and millionaires, mix in Freddie Threepwood, Beach the Butler and the gardener McAllister, and the moon is full indeed.

Nobody writes like Wodehouse! A fluffy, madcap romp filled with silly antics and irreverent dialogue. Totally enjoyable. #6 in the Blandings series. I had not read the first 5, and it didn‘t matter.
Great pick to finish out #Round16 of #LMPBC for #GroupH, @TheAromaofBooks !

TheAromaofBooks A lot of people don't enjoy the Blandings Castle books as much, but I have such a huge soft spot for Lord Emsworth. I would also like to putter about in my garden at home and spend time contemplating the beauty of a pig 😂 3w
julieclair @TheAromaofBooks 🐷😂 I like Lord Emsworth, too! But I must admit he has not spawned a desire in me to become a pig-gazer. 😂 But of course, you have read more of these books than I have, so perhaps as I continue reading the series I will evolve. 😉 3w

Another delightful romp of silliness and shenanigans. What more could one ask for when one needs a brief respite from the world? Perfect choice for #lmpbc

mabell Wodehouse is always good for goofy time! 2mo
julieclair Yay! Looking forward to it! 2mo
Ruthiella Wodehouse is the best at silliness and shenanigans! ❤️😂 2mo

Bell and I enjoyed a little quiet girl time while I finished my #LMPBC book this afternoon. ❤️

A fun, goofy mess, of course! To preserve your sanity, steer clear of Blandings and its inmates 🤣 Freddie and Uncle Gally steal the show!

I love these full moon blessing that remind me to use intention in a meaningful way 🖤🖤🖤
1. Trying to release fear of what I can‘t control. This month has been difficult and challenging and scary with multiple ongoing crisis occurring in my home. I know we will be ok but it is easy to forget to just breathe.
Today I am wishing blessings on all of the Litsy community. Please accept and share these blessings in any way that is meaningful to you!

KarouBlue Agreed! 3y
Meaw_catlady Sending so much support and love your way love! I‘m sorry it‘s been so tough! Love and light !! 🌕🖤❤️ 3y
Hulksmashish Thank you for sharing I use this the other day during the full moon it was so beautiful and bright and I got to release my fears thank you 3y

1. No -- but we've had a lot of rain lately ☔️
2. Stacks of BOOKS automatically make me feel warm and cozy. No particular genre or book

There‘s nothing scary about this full moon. Unless you find cocktails and tea on the lawn frightening.

Caroline2 I tried reading the first book of this series and couldn‘t get into it. Either it was too daft or I wasn‘t in the mood for that kinda comedy at the time. 🤷‍♀️ 3y

The usual goings-on going on at Blandings. What more could you ask for?

A combo of drinks on covers and drinks in the title. Wodehouse is always good for beverage references. Wodehouse characters are always having cocktails or tea out on the lawn.

RidgewayGirl Beautiful editions of the Wodehouse books! 6y
VioletBramble @RidgewayGirl They're The Collector's Wodehouse from Overlook Press. 6y

Book mail! (I really should stop ordering from Book Depository, especially when they have sales).

LauraBrook Hah, I tell myself that every time I place an order. But screw it, YAY #BOOKMAIL!!! 6y
mllemay It's impossible to resist on a normal day, so when they have sales...there's just no point pretending we have any self-control lol 6y
Karkar I just ordered from them for the first time yesterday. They had the cool versions of Harry Potter and then I found some other books that I liked the U.K. Cover better that the US one. 6y

Sue @LauraBrook Bookmail is the best mail!! @mllemay True enough! @karkar I really like them because not only are they cheap, but I can get books that haven't been released here yet 😁 @Lizpixie That should totally be a thing! @Libby1 @BiancaMarais I just love Wodehouse - they were on special!!! I couldn't leave them there! 6y
