Readalong: Frenchman’s Creek

I got my reading mojo back (I gave it tea and cookies I was so happy!) thanks to P.G. Wodehouse. Stole Borrowed my dad’s kindle and downloaded the first book in the Blandings Castle series Something Fresh/New (which one is the correct title? I don’t really get why there’s any need to change it around).

Luckily, since I’ll probably finish it today and I don’t want to rush through the series, Jo of Bibliojunkie together with Bibliophile by the Sea is doing a readalong of Daphne DuMaurier’s Frenchman’s Creek. So I know what I’ll be reading the next couple of days.

Readalong starts September 1st and reviews will be posted on the 18th. So head over to Jo’s and /or Diane’s blog and let them know if you would like to join them!

  1. Funnily enough, i just recommended Frenchman’s Creek to one of my pupils yesterday. She told me she was reading Rebecca and so I said that if she wanted a very romantic read, FC was the one. Now I’m going to have to reread it. I loved it, many years ago. I hope the magic’s still there, for me and for Beth!

    Glad you’ve got over your ‘reader’s block’! 🙂

  2. Glad to know that you got your reading mojo back, Bina! Hope you enjoy the ‘Frenchman Creek’ read-along with Jo and Diane. Happy Reading!
