Mabe you noticed that I didn´t loot anything from the library last week. I felt quite proud because of that and then this week I had to celebrate by going to the library! I decided to try to get some oldies but goodies that so many of you seemed to like, and it´s so fun that the editions my uni library had even look old and respectable 😉 It´s even better when there´s no title on the book and people on the train are craning their necks to find out what I´m reading!
Here´s what I got:
Stich ins Wespennest/ Miss Buncle´s Book (D.E. Stevenson)
Could only find the German version but I´m hoping that it won´t matter too much. Or is the writing style the best thing about it?
A Very Great Profession. The Woman´s Novel 1914-39 (Nicola Beauman)
Reading about literature, can it get any better? I took one look at the table of contents and decided to save it for a lazy weekend.
Mrs Harris Goes to New York (Paul Gallico)
I´m so jealous of everyone who´s already enjoyed the Bloomsbury Group books, they look and sound fantastic.
Young Anne (Dorothy Whipple)
Is there anyone who´s read Dorothy Whipple and not gushed about her? My library had this one, apparently her first or any early work, and I´m excited to see what the fuss is about.
Excellent Women (Barbara Pym)
Read this one today, I just wanted to read a few lines to get an impression of the story, but somehow I had suddenly arrived at the last page!
Death of a Gentle Lady (M.C. Beaton)
Kind of a detour from the other books, but since I enjoyed Beaton´s Agatha Raisin series I thought I should try the hamish macbeth series as well (since the main character has such a great name).
Have you read any of these books, what did you think? And what did you loot from the library this week?
