There is nothing better than a hot cuppa tea and good book (and a pair of fingerless gloves) on a cold winters day. And I must say, I am tired of the snow and ice and more ice although it has offered the perfect opportunity to curl up with a few good books and catch up on my reading. (It wasn’t like I was going anywhere)
I finally finished The Phantom of Pemberley by Regina Jeffers (review to come) as well as a rereading of Darcy and Fitzwilliam by Karen V. Wasylowski. Both books were definitely unique takes on P&P and I had immense fun exploring the worlds they created. I had intended to start Sons and Daughters, the follow up to Darcy and Fitzwilliam, although I forgot to pack the book. (They need to make a suitcase just for books, if they already have one I need to find it.)
I did manage to bring along The Journey by Jane Hahn (review to come), which quickly became one of my favorite P&P retellings. The Watsons has finally been checked off my tbr list as I read it for a Jane Austen course a dear friend is teaching. Sadly, that was all the Austen-inspired novels that were in my bag.
However, I did manage to make a dent in my Georgette Heyer books. I started and finished The Convenient Marriage, The Corinthian, and a rereading of Sylvester (I also listened to the audiobook read by Richard Armitage for the tenth time). And I am currently reading Cotillion. (reviews to come)
I am hoping to read through the rest of my Georgette Heyer books (I have 5 left to read as well as a biography of the author) then start North and South. I also have a few new Austen-inspired books that I received in a book gift basket.
Have you caught up on your tbr list?
