Happy July reading everyone!!! I am enjoying July and hope you are too!!! At the moment I am in Cyprus for my Brother in law's wedding and am sitting by the pool as I write this.
|My Brother in law's Villa|
It was my birthday in June and I visited Jane Austen's house in Chawton, look out for a post with some pictures. On the 21st July I am doing a post on my Austenesque birthday gifts, which will include a giveaway!!! As you can imagine when people buy a Janeite gifts, eventually you get doubles, so I thought it would be fun to do a giveaway, plus I picked up some extra gifts at Jane Austen's house:)
In June I signed up to an eight week course run by the University of Sheffield, called Literature of the English Country House, which I have been struggling to fit it into my busy lifestyle!!!
A brief description of the course....
"A journey through the literature of English country houses from the time of Thomas More to OscarWilde"
So far I have only completed the Jane Austen week ha ha.
I have two reviews left to post from June which I have been unable to post due to them being on my PC in England!!! (I admit I could have done a scheduled post, but ran out of time, seriously who knew blogging was so time consuming? I hear you shout "probably every decent blogger out there!")
This month I will be reviewing Mr Darcy's Forbidden Love by Brenda Webb, Whoa!! A novel of epic proportions & A Matter of Chance by L.L.Diamond which is my first modern JAFF.
My Invite to the ball this month is non-Austenesque book Falling for Chloe by Diane Farr. A recommendation from my Goodreads friends.
I have been a busy bee, recently buying lots of books, but to a die hard bookaholic my purchases are apparently minimal, as I was soon to find out! "Mother guess how many books I have purchased this month?" " fifty?" Wow, talk about anti climax "No forty" obviously I am out of my league!!!
I hope you have some great reads lined up too!! Happy reading everyone:)
