New books! #13

Quick note- if you’re a blogger and not already participating in a meme like Letterbox Love or Showcase Sunday, would you be interested in joining this weekly one using the banner above?

I’ve been totally ecstatic about the books that I’ve received and borrowed this week! Firstly, my Dad went to the Folio Society, who sell BEAUTIFUL hardback, illustrated editions of books (go check out their website crammed with some gorgeous volumes of brilliant books, here!  http://www.foliosociety.com/), and got a copy of Miss Marple Short Stories, by Agatha Christie. It’s a really beautiful edition, with colour illustrations and I really can’t wait to start it, after reading one of her Poirot books!

Also, the lovely, lovely people at Harper Collins have sent me an ARC of The Taming Of The Tights, by Louise Rennison. I can’t even put into words how hilariously brilliant the first two books in this series were! I’ve already begun this, and I don’t think I even got to ten pages in without laughing out loud. Review of this soon!

And, finally, more lovely people, this time at Faber, sent me a copy of The Diaries of Bluebell Gadsby: After Iris! The cover is absolutely gorgeous, and this looks like a really great but emotional read. I can’t wait to see what it’s like!

  1. Yes, the cover of The Diaries of Bluebell Gadsby is definitely gorgeous! I adore Agatha Christie books, so I hope you enjoy the short stories, and I think I’m now gonna have to start Wuthering Tights – that’s the first Tallulah Casey one, isn’t it?

    1. It’s so pretty! And I’ve only read one Agatha Christie title before 🙂 what about you?
      yep, that’s the first book! Or, actually, it might by a midsummer tights dream. I’m not sure. Anyway, hope you enjoy them!
