A shorter read than I remember! I first read this when I was about 15 for my English class, and remember it as being much longer.
Anyway, I loved this book just as much the second time round. A solid 5🌟
Wow, its been a while folks 😁 I've been so busy the last few months writing my thesis. But it's all done and dusted now so I can start reading for pleasure again!
Thanks to everyone who followed me while I was away from Litsy. I look forward to seeing all your posts 💕💕
I had great plans to do some work in the garden this afternoon, but the temperature has dropped and it's started snowing! So I'm cuddlin' up with the kitty and Agatha Christie for the rest of the day 📚🐱🍵
I've been offline for so long, but I've been itching to get back to litsy. It's been a busy few weeks with exams, study and dissertation deadlines 😱 But that's all over and done with, and I have a full week off to catch up on my reading 😍😍😍
Looks like I'll *finally* get around to finishing The Tea Planter's Daughter!
Oh my! What a busy few days it's been, I've barely had time to read. I've all the presents wrapped, prepped the turkey, visited friends and relatives so now it's time to put the feet up with a book.
I'll probably be offline for the next 48 hours or so, so I'll take this opportunity to wish everyone a very merry Christmas. I hope everyone gets stacks of books! 😂📚🎆
I love, love, love this book. As a fellow nature nerd and introvert this book appealed to me in numerous ways. The solitude, the wild places, connecting with nature. Fascinating stuff.
I always loved the Hitch and his marvellous way with words. I've read most of his books and essays, and regularly return to this collection. It's a permanent feature on my side table.
Such a strong, opinionated and more than a little controversial character. Like him or loathe him you cannot deny his command of the English language. His wit and his wisdom is sorely missed.
Is there anyone that doesn't love this book? 💕
This was another recent read from the library, and the first of Du Maurier's books I've read. A very atmospheric story with some somewhat unsettling undertones. While I'll admit I disliked the main character a bit (Rebecca is spineless!), I really enjoyed the story, and it gripped me till the end.
I'm looking forward to reading more of Du Maurier's work.
Wow. I read this first when I was about 15, and while I enjoyed it I don't think I could appreciate the message that Atwood was conveying. I simply read it as a story, and missed the underlying themes.
I reread this again about a year ago, and it hit me like a tonne of bricks. An excellent but often challenging read.
Just pure pleasure. I can't put into words just how much I adore this book 😍😍 Like Wuthering Heights, a book I return to time and time again.
I was made to read this book during my final year in Secondary school (high school) for my English exam, and I loathed it.
Since then, I must have read Wuthering Heights a dozen times. Each re-read brings out something new. It has gone from a book that I despised, to a book that I return to at least once a year. I absolutely adore it.
I waited half a lifetime for this book, and I was not disappointed. It was emotional at times, especially when characters from HDM were mentioned or popped up...so many feels 😍
The last few chapters were a little bit odd, so I think this book will need to be reread to see if I can make more sense of it all.
Overall another amazing book by Pullman.
