Hello my fellow bookworms, here’s what goodies I have managed to add to my bookshelf and Kindle recently:
Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
Agnes Grey by Anne Brontë
The Collected Works of Charles Dickens
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
The Journey by John A Heldt
A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Named of the Dragon by Susanna Kearsley
Kim by Rudyard Kipling
Added to my Kindle this month are 7 novels, and a large collection of novels and short stories. Mansfield Park, Agnes Grey, North and South, A Little Princess, Kim and several Dickens novels are on my Classics Club list. I technically already have a Charles Dickens collection, but this new one is more extensive. Whilst I decided to download The Journey (Northwest Passage Book 2) after I read The Mine (Northwest Passage Book 1) last year and enjoyed it. All these I picked up for free from Amazon (UK). Then finally I received a copy of Named of the Dragon through Netgalley; I love Kearsley’s books so couldn’t resist this.
Frenchman’s Creek by Daphne du Maurier
Going Postal by Terry Pratchett
Hogfather by Terry Pratchett
Then I added modern classic Frenchman’s Creek, and comical fantasies Going Postal and Hogfather to my bookshelf after a visit to my favourite charity bookshop. I love Daphne du Maurier and Terry Pratchett, and it is a personal goal of mine to read all of their books.
Have you read any of these? What new books are you excited about?
