  1. Wow, a nice selection of books. I haven’t heard of many of them, and certainly not read any, except maybe the Grimm fairy tales, in another life time.

    Hope you have fun with these books! Happy reading.


  2. I got The Weed That Strings the Hangman’s Bag for Christmas, but haven’t read it yet. I’m looking forward to it because I loved The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. I haven’t read any of the others, though Alone in Berlin has been on my wish list for ages!


  3. I do the same ..since nobody ever offers me books, I treat myself to them and I definitely have indulged (is this expression correct ?)lately…I have ordered quite a few nice pieces that I am eagerly awaiting.
    There sould be some today in my mailbox by the way, cannot wait to open it tonight when back from my office !
    I love nothing more as far as the subject is concened than the pleasurable anticipation… it feels so delicious.

    I am waiting for :

    “Dark Matter” by Michelle Paver
    “Cold Comfort Farm” by Stella Gibbons(I ordered the movie as well but will read the book before)
    “”Nightingale Wood” by Stella Gibbons as well
    “The Hiding Place” by Corrie Ten Boom and two others (before and after the Hiding place years) by same author
    “The Stone Cutter” by Camilla Lackberg (I received “the Preacher” last week)
    “Sister” by Rosamund Lupton
    “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett
    “The last Kashmiri Rose” by Barbara Cleverly and “Ragtime in Simla”
    I got a couple of Peter Robinson last week, I fell in love with the Inspertor Banks series.
    I am finishing the second book (“Lacrimae”) in the” Druon de Brévaux Mysteries” series by Andrea H Japp and of course pre-ordered the 3d “Templa Mentis”!

    “Picnic at Hanging Rock”, the movie but I have to read the book before, which I already have at home, having ordered it last year.
    “Pillars of Earth” the series because I read the book many years ago and enjoyed it a lot.
    A BBC version of Rebecca because I know only the Hitchcock Movie.

    Sister carrie is on my TBR pileS as well as a Jo Nesbo because I had read a very mouthwatering review right here (The Snowman).

    Have a nice day Boof:-D


  4. Ooh lovely books. I notice that you also have Madame Bovary in your stash but not in your list (which incidentally is the only one I’ve read). Very interesting book (although I didn’t really like Mrs B myself. Look forward to your thoughts!


  5. Oh of course, I want the alan Bradley , I have “the Sweetness…” at home but have not read it yet, I find these titles very appealing.
    I love Mrs Bovary because it takes place in my birthplace area but I admit she is not a very likeable character.


  6. Wow, the books you get sent for review! I am jealous of every single one (except Madame Bovary which I own already). Especially the Lark Rise book, it looks so pretty and I have been meaning to read it for forever!


  7. The only one I have read is the Alan Bradley and I loved it, but I love the series full stop.

    I am most jealous of your arrivals, since I have moved I have had one book come through the post box. Apparently there are lots of them at my old address which should be being redirected by Royal Mail… and arent!


  8. Very nice selection! How exciting! It’s always so interesting for me to see what your editions look like.

    I too have Bradley’s second one to read; it’s a purple trade paperback. I loved The Sweetness so I’ve been looking forward to this for some time. Hey, if you guys end up vacationing in Malta, as so many Brits do, look him up and ask him to sign your copies! 🙂
