It’s Monday What are you Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey, it’s a chance to share and plan our reading week.
I’ve been so busy this last fortnight, working hard on the house and the kids so had hardly any time for books at all. I didn’t have time to do a post last week but in case you missed my post from a couple of weeks ago, I shared some pictures from outside Jane Austen’s house in Bath, I know many of you are fans of Jane Austen and over in the US so if you would like to see where she lived you can here.
On the subject of Jane Austen I finished re-reading Persuasion this week. I have read it a few times and I absolutely love this book. It’s great having been to Bath a few weeks ago as I can picture all the places described in the book.
I also finished reading Before I Met You by Lisa Jewell, this was a great book set in both 1995 and 1920 and it tells the story of a women discovering the past of her grandmother. I really loved this book and the picture it paints of early 1920s London. This one comes highly recommended.
I have started reading The Island by Victoria Hislop, after it was recommended to me by several members of The Vintage Book Group.
The TBR list is the same as it has been for a few weeks now. I need to make a dent in it rather than picking up new books!
I also wrote a review of Handmade Wedding Crafts by the lovely Betty Bee see the review here.
I hope everyone has a great week, what are you reading?
