Hope y’all are having a great weekend, folks! (I’ve been thinking about my autumnal trip to America, if that’s any excuse for that sentence – although ‘autumnal’ has rather scuppered that line of thought.)
It’s getting rather too hot again, so I shall collapse in a heap – before I do so, here’s a book, a blog post, and a link, as per.
1.) The book – Janet Todd wrote a fantastic book called Death and the Maidens a few years ago, and the Shelleys and Wollstonecrafts (read my review here) – I’ve heard that she’s now got a novel out reimagining Jane Austen’s Lady Susan. It’s only available as an ebook, so I can’t read it (and I haven’t even read Lady Susan yet, as I want to save something by Austen) – but perhaps you can. Find out more here.
2.) The blog post – Hurrah and hurray for Vintage Books reprinting Stella Gibbons! When I think I know about her output, still more appear – I’m currently reading Here Be Dragons, but for today, go and read Jane/Fleur Fisher’s fantastic and enticing review of The Rich House.
3.) The link – Nanny Net sent me a link to their 10 Nanny Themed Summer Reading Books… as target audiences go, this is up there with the person who emailed me recently saying they’d like to feature me on their TV show as ‘a book lover and mother of two’, but perhaps some of you will be intrigued!
