Let’s start this party month with some books! I love books, I can’t have enough of them! Let’s take a look at all the books I added to my collection over the month of April!
Murder Underground by Mavis Doriel Hay
Continental Crimes edited by Martin Edwards
I absolutely adored Mavis Doriel Hay’s other book, Death on the Cherwell, and I really wanted to read more of her books! Also, look at that lady on the cover, her outfit is amazing! Continental Crimes is a short story collection that includes even Agatha Christie. I was really excited to read it, but as you will see tomorrow, it wasn’t what I expected. Nevertheless, I’m glad to have added these to my British Library Crime Classics collection!
1950s Modern: British Style and Design by Susannah Walker
Gruesome Great Houses by Terry Deary
More spoilers for tomorrow; I finished 1950s Modern as well this month! Shire Library is a must-have for anyone wanting to get to know a new interest, be it fashion, be it design, be it history, I love these! This one, however, wasn’t that special…
Gruesome Great Houses is another instalment in the Horrible Histories series, and guys, I”m so close to having ALL OF THEM. I wasn’t too thrilled about Crackin’ Castles, so I’m not sure whether I’m going to read this one or not, I”m just glad I’m so close to finishing the series, haha!
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Castle Rackrent by Maria Edgeworth
Anne of Windy Poplars by L.M. Montgomery
Oh, I love Classics! And I especially love Little Women! I don’t even have to explain this, I’ve written tons of blogposts about it. It’s my favourite book and always will be. It’s precious and it’s amazing!
Castle Rackrent is an Irish satire about the English aristocracy and I’ve started it, and it’s quite fun! I’m not really sure what to expect, because it’s older than what I usually read. I tend to read books from 1860 upwards, but this one was published in 1800! It’s a lot of fun, but I’ll report back when I”ve finished it!
Next up, is Anne of Windy Poplars, number 4 in the Anne of Green Gables series and I can’t really talk too much about it, otherwise I’ll spoil the entire series! I really loved book 3 and I can’t wait to read book 4!
the Whispering Statue by Carolyn Keene
Has a month really passed if I haven’t ordered a new Nancy Drew? I love the series but I didn’t really like this one! Nancy Drew is an amazing series for kids who want to try out detectives. They are ridiculous, but that’s the fun thing about children’s books, they are ridiculous and bonkers! I also love the retro look of them, I’m not going to lie, but unfortunately, quite a few of them have turned really 70s, while the series was written in the 30s! I really like them, they are short, but are enjoyable. I highly recommend them! Nancy Drew isn’t famous in Europe, so I’m out here spreading the Word of Nancy Drew!
That’s it for this month! What was your favourite book purchase this month?
