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!
