I have recently come into possession of five new books, thanks to my boyfriend’s parents, who gave me a very generous gift card to Barnes and Noble! I went out today and got three Stephen King novels (The Stand, The Regulators, and Desperation), Villette by Charlotte Brontë, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë. I’m currently about 75 pages into The Stand. It’s been AGES since I’ve read it—a friend borrowed it from me my junior or senior year of high school, and I haven’t seen it since. So I’m really excited to be reading it again!
I had been hoping to get Fanny Burney’s three major works, Cecilia, Camilla, and Evelina (I’m pretty sure I sold back the copy that I read for class last year because it had a lot of extra stuff that I wasn’t at all interested in) but the store had zero Fanny Burney. Any suggestions for a nice boxed set of her novels? I haven’t found anything in my limited search so far.
Anyway, I have a bunch of posts from 2011 that I’ve written but haven’t posted, so those will (hopefully) keep y’all busy while I tackle the 1400+ pages of The Stand. And those of you who have read Villette, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, The Regulators, or Desperation: Feel free to tell me what you thought! I know nothing about any of them aside from the little blurbs on the back covers, so I can use all the help I can get. 🙂
P.S.: I think I have finally settled on a posting schedule that will keep me from going insane: I will be posting pretty much on Mondays ONLY, except for special occasions. I wish I had the time to post more often, but it’s just not feasible with such a super-busy job. It’s less the posting time, actually, and more the reading time, of which there is very little. Thus, I will hopefully be able to finish books weekly-ish, write about them over weekends, and post on Mondays. Thanks so much for reading, I so enjoy seeing your comments and having discussions!
P.P.S: Sorry, changed my mind. I decided I wanted to do a regular feature on Tuesdays–Top Ten Tuesdays, a la The Broke and the Bookish. So to keep things even(ish) I’ll be posting my regular entries on Fridays. Sorry for being annoying. But this seems to be what will work best, though I have no doubt I’ll be taking hiatuses (announced and unannounced) in the future, for sure. Thanks for your patience, and as always, thanks for reading. 🙂by
