It’s Monday What are you Reading is a weekly blog event hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It’s a chance for us to share the books we’ve enjoyed this week as well as any reviews and to plan the book we want to read over the next week. Here I like to share some of my favourite vintage themed books and books being read by The Vintage Book Group.
This week I have finished The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald, The Pursuit of Love by Nancy Mitford and Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote. I loved all these books and the way they capture a picture of the time which they were written. The 20s, 30s and 40s are all covered here, so it was a great week for vintage reads.
Next week I plan to read Jane and Prudence by Barbara Pym, The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris by Jenny Colgan and Don’t Tell Alfred by Nancy Mitford.
This week I reviewed Style Me Vintage Weddings by Annabel Beeforth, it’s a wonderful book packed with beautiful wedding ideas.
This week I watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which is very different from Capote’s novella and Lagerfeld Confidential. I find Karl Lagerfeld completely fascinating and loved this documentary film which shows so much of the man behind the suit and dark specs. I could have watched hours more footage.
Have a great reading week. What are you reading?
