What weird weather we’ve had for the end of August / beginning of September. Lots of storms and chilly weather this week means lots of reading time! After a busy but wonderful Labor Day weekend hosting family, I always welcome a week with nothing on the calendar. Here’s what I’m reading currently!
This week’s Reading Roundup!
Work Book (for lunch time reading):
The Pemberley Chronicles by Rebecca Ann Collins – Billed as a complementary novel to Pride and Prejudice, the Pemberley Chronicles picks up the story right after Elizabeth and Jane’s wedding. As much as I love these characters, I’m finding this book sickeningly sweet. The two women constantly rave about their amazing husbands and perfect life. None of the flaws and conflicts that made the original worth reading are present here.
A Separate Peace by John Knowles – After about a month of reading, I finally finished this book. The plot is fairly slow moving, which typically makes me reluctant to keep reading. At least it is a different perspective about how World War II influenced American lives.
Emily of New Moon by L.M. Montgomery – From the author of Anne of Green Gables comes another unique tale about a young orphan. One of my favorite book bloggers, Modern Mrs Darcy, consistently recommends this title. I’m only a few chapters in, but I can tell I’m going to love this character and all her adventures.
From Around the Web:
British Food Souvenirs – Next time we hop over the pond I’m keeping an eye out for most of these! The only one I brought home from my last trip to London was Cadbury chocolate (of course).
DIY Outdoor Decor Projects for Fall – For those who are more crafty than I am, some of these ideas are adorable and seem fairly easy! Mom! (I hope you’re reading) I want you to make me some of these 🙂
