Greetings to you all, my fellow bookworms, on this sunny Bank Holiday weekend! Today I am pleased to share that the lovely Ali, over at Heavenali, is again hosting her brilliant Daphne du Maurier reading event on their shared birthday week: 10th-16th May 2021 🎁
All you have to do to take part is to read one (or more) of Daphne du Maurier’s wonderful gothic novels; her celebrated, historical non-fictions; or any of her numerous short stories and collections. And once you finish, share what you read on your blog and/or social media, then link it up at Ali’s dedicated review page. Last year was my first year taking part and I thoroughly enjoyed myself: reading the new-to-me The Loving Spirit and indulging in a re-read of Rebecca.
Now for the really important bit: what am I going to read?! Well unfortunately I don’t have any of her books on my to-be-read shelf, however I do have four other novels and two short story collections ripe for a re-read, on my bookcase. I am most tempted to go back to re-visit The Birds & Other Stories, a classic collection of alienation and horror stories – immortalised by Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic film of the title story. 🦅📽
Now in the comments let me know: What do you think of my reading plans? Are you tempted to take part in this event, too? If so what are you planning to read?
