I don’t normally do posts like this, as I usually only buy one or two books at a time, but this morning I struck book gold!!
Someone with great reading taste must have made a donation to the charity shop recently!!!
16 books I really want to read…..
The Secret Scripture – Sebastian Barry
I’ve been wanting to read this for a long time. I’m so pleased I finally found a copy.
Rebecca – Daphne Du Maurier
I’m almost ashamed to admit that I’ve never read this. I must rectify this situation as soon as possible!
Rabbit at Rest – John Updike (The last book of his trilogy, so I’ll need to do a bit more buying before I can read this!)
In the Beauty of the Lilies – John Updike
I have never read any books by John Updike, and don’t think these are the right ones to start with, but at least I have them for the future! Can anyone recommend a good Updike book to start with?
A Quartet in Autumn – Barbara Pym
I have heard so many good things about this book, so it is really good to finally find a copy.
The Wind-up Bird Chronicle – Haruki Murakami
I love Murakami, but for some reason I’ve never read the most famous of his books.
Faceless Killers – Henning Mankell
I have a few of his books in my TBR pile already, but now I’ve finally got hold of the first in the series I can start working my way through them!
The Red Book – Meaghan Delahunt
Has anyone read this book? I saw an amazing print review of it in a paper once, but haven’t seen anyone mention it since.
Kristin Lavansdatter – Sigrid Undset
I have been wanting to read this ever since I saw Michelle’s reviews. I am so lucky to have found the complete trilogy!
New Moon – Stephanie Meyer
Eclipse – Stephanie Meyer
I still haven’t read Twilight, but it makes sense to have the rest of the series waiting doesn’t it?!
Cloudstreet – Tim Winton
Megan recommended that I try this book, so it is great to find a copy!
Birds of a Feather – Jacqueline Winspear
Messenger of Truth – Jacqueline Winspear
I have never read a Jacqueline Winspear book, are either of these a good place to start?
A Fraction of the Whole – Steve Toltz
This was nominated for the Booker prize last year, so is a compulsory addition to my TBR mountain!
Shadow Without a Name – Ignacio Padilla
Finally, this arrived in the post this morning via bookmooch. It is Matthew’s favourite book of all time, so I’m really looking forward to reading it.
and to top it all off I also found this brand new pasta maker for only £12:
You can’t beat days like today!
