Just One Damned Thing After Another
Just One Damned Thing After Another | Jodi Taylor
History is just one damned thing after another - Arnold Toynbee A madcap new slant on history that seems to be everyone's cup of tea... Behind the seemingly innocuous faade of St Mary's, a different kind of historical research is taking place. They don't do 'time-travel' - they 'investigate major historical events in contemporary time'. Maintaining the appearance of harmless eccentrics is not always within their power - especially given their propensity for causing loud explosions when things get too quiet. Meet the disaster-magnets of St Mary's Institute of Historical Research as they ricochet around History. Their aim is to observe and document - to try and find the answers to many of History's unanswered questions...and not to die in the process. But one wrong move and History will fight back - to the death. And, as they soon discover - it's not just History they're fighting. Follow the catastrophe curve from eleventh-century London to World War I, and from the Cretaceous Period to the destruction of the Great Library at Alexandria. For wherever Historians go, chaos is sure to follow in their wake ...

My first finish for #20in4

Wow! I absolutely adored this book and can‘t wait to go on more adventures with Max and the rest of the St. Mary‘s gang. Thanks @julesG for putting this on my radar.

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 I need to read this. 1mo
Texreader Her books are awesome! Every Christmas on Christmas Day she releases a short story in this series and I always look forward to it. 1mo
Mollyanna @Andrew65 Thank you! You should bump this up your TBR. It was soooo good. 1mo

Mollyanna @Texreader I loved this book and can‘t wait to read more in the series. Thanks for letting me know about the short stories, I will keep an eye out for this year‘s 😍. 1mo
Texreader Actually I‘m embarrassed to say after reading all the short stories up to whatever year it was, I asked for her whole series for Christmas and I got it! But I‘ve only read book 1 plus all the short stories. Now there are new books in the series I‘ll eventually have to get to keep up with the series! 1mo
Mollyanna @Texreader 😊. You can savor the series then…. I‘ll definitely have to check out the short stories. 1mo
julesG @Texreader If you only read the short stories, you'll have read lots of spoilers for the books. I'd read the books and shorts in order. 1mo

I blame @BarbaraJean about 90% for this and other Litsy readers the rest 🤪 The rest of the series isn't exactly as dirt cheap as the first one - what have I done?? I now know why this is so popular and I want more! Sometimes it's just a tiny, tiny bit too cute, but mostly I love her writing and cleverness. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

BarbaraJean Yaaaaay! I‘m so glad you enjoyed it—these books are such a delight. And you have so many to look forward to! (Sorry to hear the price goes up… I guess they know how it goes, once you get hooked…😆) 5mo

GarethSouthwell I've had an eye on the Jodi Taylor. Is it good? 8mo
julesG @GarethSouthwell If you like time travel and history, quirky British characters, sarcasm, Terry Pratchett, Ben Aaronovitch, Benedict Jacka, then this is for you. I bought the first book when JT self-published it back in the day and then had it lying around for ages. When I eventually picked it up, I was hooked, despite some repetitiveness. I've read all 12 books twice already. It's exactly my kind of jam. 😁 8mo
GarethSouthwell @julesG 12 books! Twice! They must be enjoyable, then. I'll give one a go, as I like at least some of those things you mention. :) 8mo
See All 15 Comments
julesG @GarethSouthwell I've gushed about the books on my blog. Here's my very enthusiastic post about the first book. https://scepticalreading.com/2021/07/armchair-time-travelling-with-st-marys/ mind you, the first book was self published and could have benefited from a little more editing. But, compared to a lot of other self published works, it's a gem. 8mo
GarethSouthwell @julesG Nice review. (What about Welsh ancestry, I wonder...?) I shall add it - thank you. Self-publishing can be quite an expensive thing, so I understand when authors decide to skip professional editing. I'd gladly pay for it if I could afford it, but I have to make do with the help of friends and the kindness of strangers! 8mo
julesG @GarethSouthwell Thank you! Welsh ancestry? I'm not following. Should you ever need someone else to beta-read your work, I love getting the red crayons out. 😂😂 Honestly, I'm good at spotting inconsistencies. And I have a black belt in checking grammar - English is not my mother tongue and so I keep looking up phrases and grammar that looks funny to my second language speaker's eyes. 8mo
GarethSouthwell @julesG I meant about how to tell which British people have Norman or Saxon ancestry. Some may have neither - Welsh, Scottish, etc - though most people have a mixed background these days, of course. And that's a very kind offer - I'll honestly bear that in mind. It would be unpaid, I'm afraid! Though obviously you'd get a mention in the published book. Currently working on another short story and two novels, so there'll be opportunities! :) 8mo
GarethSouthwell @julesG May I ask what your first language is? 8mo
julesG @GarethSouthwell Ah! I have no idea about how to tell Welsh ancestry. But now I'm curious. That's probably a Google black hole though. - - - I'm fine with doing it for the glory. Just give me a shout. 8mo
julesG @GarethSouthwell My first language is German. Grew up in a dialect rich area, which is probably why I have a keen ear for languages. I had to learn early that even German isn't always spoken the way you spell it. 😜 8mo
GarethSouthwell @julesG I will shout! :) Generally, the Welsh people are descended from earlier settles who came from Northern Spain, so are shorter and have a darker complexion (as opposed to the fairer skinned Scandinavians, and later the French). 8mo
GarethSouthwell @julesG All the Germans I've known seem to have better English than I do! :) 8mo
GarethSouthwell @julesG By the way, Jules, if you did want to be contacted about beta reading, there's a newsletter on my website you can sign up to, which I use to put out calls for beta readers. You don't have to, just a thought in case I forget to ask you. 8mo

3.25⭐ This book was a bit clunky and disjointed at times and probably could have done with another round of edits, but what it lacks in finesse, it makes up for with humor and excitement. It is a fun twist on the typical time traveling story, and Taylor's sharp dialogue and wit is enjoyable to read and highly quotable. I'll definitely be checking out more of The St. Mary's Chronicles.

julesG I agree. Re: editing, this book was originally a self-published book. When Taylor finally got a publisher, she already had a huge following. Guess editing/re-vamping this first novel just wouldn't have worked. 8mo
Nelnjali @julesG Oh, good to know. Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed the book, but I really wish I could see what it could be with a bit more polishing. 8mo

About historians who time travel - but you didn‘t hear it and I never said it, or the consequences to us could be dire. They go only to observe and document (thus avoiding paradoxes - or History will take her own action) those points in history we all wonder about, like what happened to the Princes in the Tower. I‘m 1/3 of the way in; based on UK/ European history.
Don‘t miss the amusing cast list at the beginning.
Liking it so far

humouress Oh dear! Ch 6 ends with ‘if I had, would it all have been different?‘ 9mo
humouress ... and the next chapter has ‘I took it at face value‘. But I‘m not getting a sense of doom and gloom from the writing. Max, the main character (written in first person POV) has gone back in time to a very interesting period. 9mo

The first in a series about the "tea-soaked disaster magnets" of St Mary's where historians investigate major events in "contemporary time" (the term time travel is frowned upon).
Headstrong but ingenious ancient historian Madeleine Maxwell joins the team at St Mary's and finds herself investigating all manner of events, including a stay in the Cretaceous that ends up going even more haywire than usual...

Definitely a pick. It could use some editing to smooth the transitions from one moment to another. It was choppy at times. Did anyone watch Loki on Disney +? I saw similarities in going back to points in time with major destruction and chaos so the time travelers could come and go without being noticed or impacting the timeline.

What a wild and crazy ride, I mean read! The cast of characters at St. Mary's are delightful, zany and full of disastrous successes. Max leads the way as the main person in the story. She is recruited to join as a historian in the secret society of St. Mary's. Under the auspices of Thrisk University, the undertake exploring other times and centuries, observing and recording. But never interfering in history.⬇️
