I don’t about everywhere else in the world, but…THE NICE WEATHER IS FINALLY HERE! (At least for now.)
Ahem, anyway, let’s talk books.
GUESS WHAT?! Go on, GUESS! Give up? OK, I’ll tell you. If you follow me on twitter then you may already know this.
I won my first ever book giveaway!! I could not believe it when I got the message on twitter! I’m so excited to read this!
In other news…
I recently read Pride and prejudice, which I loved, but you can read the review here. (Spoiler free!) I am going to get that beautiful clothbound version of the novel eventually!
And so, I’m now on a Jane Austen binge and recently got Emma from the library. I also ordered the Pride and prejudice TV series and the film which also comes with Emma. It may come tomorrow! Fingers crossed!
I think I’m going to write a list of classics I want to read. (What even counts as a classic?!) So, let me know your favourite classics so I can check them out!! \o/
(I also need to re-organize my to read list because I don’t even know what’s on there. It’s getting out of hand. D:)
Speaking of the library, I also got two other books while there. I would have got a few more classics, but they didn’t have the ones that I was looking for. 😦
1. The eye of minds by James Dashner. I’m unsure about this book. I’ve read The maze runner trilogy, (did not read the sequel), and I was left disappointed by it, but, I did enjoy parts of his writing and the blurb of this book was interesting so I decided to take a chance.
2. The kraken wakes by John Wyndham. I’ve read Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham after my Dad recommended it to me and I quite liked it, (although I found it a little long), so I wanted to try another of his books. I’m already 30 odd pages in and so far so good!
I plan to read the rest of the Narnia books too. Next up will be The lion, the witch and the wardrobe which is probably the one most people are familiar with. (At least, by title.)
(Do you know how many books that are on my shelf that I want to read?! I need more eyeballs!)
