One Book, Two Book, Three Book, Four… and Five (again!)

A while ago I made up a quick little meme which enabled bloggers to run through recent books of interest – and it rather caught on, with dozens of bloggers (including, rewardingly, many I’d never heard of) following suit.   It was such fun seeing snapshots of different people’s reading and buying – and a nice easy post for bloggers to write!

So, guess what?  I fancy doing it again.  Do have a go yourself, if you like – whether or not you did it last time.  And if you do, pop a note in the comments so I can go over and have a gander!

1.) The book I’m currently reading:

The Rector’s Daughter by F.M. Mayor – everyone and her husband seem to have read and loved this, so I thought I’d give it a whirl.  Will you all hate me if I say I’m not bowled over yet?

2.) The last book I finished:

Two is Lonely by Lynne Reid Banks – I re-read all three of the L-Shaped Room trilogy recently, in fact.  The first one is still brilliant – the other two not quite as good as I remembered.

3.) The next book I want to read:

Cold Light by Jenn Ashworth – to be honest, it’s been my ‘next book’ for months, but somehow other things always slip in front of it.  That doesn’t diminish how excited I am about reading Jenn’s novel!

4.) The last book I bought:

Gentleman into Goose by Christopher Ward – yes, believe it or not Lady into Fox by David Garnett led to a spoof version!  Not many copies around, so had to get this shipped over from the US of A.

5.) The last book I was given:

The Magnificent Spinster by May Sarton – came courtesy of lovely Rachel/Book Snob, accompanied by threats if I didn’t read it quick-smart.  And I didn’t.  But I will…
