My library books

I had been doing fairly well with concentrating on reading my own books – until recently. At the moment I have quite a few out and I’m waiting for one to turn up. I need to read The Chalk Pit by Elly Griffiths before going on to read the one that comes after that in her Dr Ruth Galloway series which is – The Dark Angel by Elly Griffiths.

Today I just picked up The Grave’s a Fine and Private Place by Alan Bradley, I’m really looking forward to that one.

I borrowed The Fair Maid of Perth by Sir Walter Scott, I have an ancient hardback edition of it but the print is teeny and this new Edinburgh edition has loads of explanatory notes which I’m reliably informed are really interesting.

The Great War Diaries of Georgina Lee – Home Fires Burning shouted at me from a display in the library so I couldn’t leave the place without it.

Christmas at Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan is one that I hope will help out with getting me into the Christmas spirit.

Sew Your Own Vintage Keepsakes by Lucinda Ganderton has a wide variety of things to make in it but it’s the pattern of the wee rag doll which interests me. I’ve always liked the look of rag dolls so I plan to get around to making one – if I have enough time.

The Last one is a book that I’ve already finished. The Sealwoman’s Gift by Sally Magnusson. It was a great read and I hope that she writes some more books. I’ll write about it in another blogpost.

That lot should keep me busy although I’ll have to renew some of them as there’s no way I’ll get them all read within three weeks. But in 2019 I’m definitely concentrating on reading my own books – honest!

Have you read any of these ones?

  1. I’ve read all of the Elly Griffths / Ruth Galloway books and all of the Alan Bradley / Flavia de Luce. I love domestic war diaries, so I’m off on the hunt for Home Fires Burning. But, first, I AM finishing Don Quixote and Travels of William Bartram, both of which are interesting but from which I’m easily distracted. I’m coming down the home stretch with both.

    • Joan,
      I bet you feel a real sense of achievement when you get to the end of those books! I just realised that I was falling behind with the Flavia books, I think he’s writing them too fast for me to cope with.

  2. I hope you enjoy the Flavia de Luce book. I thought it was better than the previous two, but in general I preferred the earlier books in the series. I’ll look forward to your thoughts on The Sealwoman’s Gift – I liked that one too.

    • Sandra,
      I think she must do a Christmas book every year, that one is last year’s book I think. When I borrowed it I thought it was set in Scotland – but Cornwall will be almost as good!!
