πŸ“š New Books I Got My Paws On in February, March & April 2022

Hello friends and fellow bookworms, today I will be sharing with you the new-to-me books I have managed to get my paws on over the months of February, March and April this year.

First, in February, I enjoyed a rummage through a new, free bookshop that has recently popped up in my home town, where I found these gems from one of my favourite authors:

πŸ“— The Carpet People by Terry Pratchett (1971) – The debut humorous fantasy novel, that tells the tale of two tribes of tiny people living in the carpet! Before there was Discworld there was The Carpet People… so I look forward to seeing where his writing all began.

πŸ“— The Science of Discworld by Terry Pratchett, Ian Stewart & Jack Cohen (1999) – Another humorous fantasy novel, which is an off-shoot from the Discworld series, that looks into a pocket universe accidentally created by the wizards of Unseen University, which sounds fun.

Then in March, I was happily approved on NetGalley for an ARC of this:

πŸ“± Elizabeth of York: The Last White Rose by Alison Weir (May 2022) – This historical-fiction is to be the first in a new trilogy, from the bestselling author of the ambitious Six Tudor Queens series, that will span three generations of history’s most iconic family, the Tudors. Very excited about this one!

Finally, at the very beginning of April, I received three vintage book boxes from the Teatime Bookshop altogether, which contained these:

πŸ“• Elizabethan Lover by Barbara Cartland (1953) β€“ A historical-romance set at sea with pirates, sounds right up my street, even if romance is not my usual reading choice. I have also never read anything by Cartland, who is one of the queens of romance, so this should be interesting experiment for me.

πŸ“• Joy and Josephine by Monica Dickens (1958) β€“ A family drama about an orphan looking for her β€˜real’ parents from the granddaughter of the celebrated Charles Dickens. Reviews are mixed for this one, however this is an author I have long wanted to read.

πŸ“• Sue Barton – Senior Nurse by Helen Doye Boylston (1937) β€“ The second book that follows a young woman training to become a nurse, written by a former nurse herself. Shame it wasn’t the first book, but if I enjoy this I will just have to go hunting for the rest of the series.

  1. I’m drawn to the first three! They remind me that I still have Discworld books I want to read as well as some Tudor novels.

  2. I’ve been wanting to try Discworld for a while! What a fun haul!

    Happy reading and hope you have a great weekend.

    1. I know, how amazing is a free bookshop, Cindy?! 😁 I felt so odd picking up book and like… just walking out with them lol! I believe it run by a charity that wants to get more people reading and all the books are second hand/thrown out ones.

  3. I haven’t read any of these, but I’ve also received the Alison Weir book from NetGalley. I hope we both enjoy it!
