sunday-salon-2A much better week and quite a bit more reading done and new challenges and bookish things coming up so I am in a very good mood. For now at least ūüėÄ


My tally for the TBR Double Dog stands at thirteen books (although I have actually read sixteen in total).

I re-read (and was pleased to find it stood the test of time) Carrie¬†for the¬†King’s March¬†challenge.

And today I signed up for Once Upon a Time IX with a launch post which you can read here. That’s a long list.

Oh and I’ve decided to re-read The Voyage Out, Virginia Woolf’s first novel which celebrates the anniversary of its publication this week.

In progress

I finished the very wonderful¬†Vanessa & Her Sister¬†in plenty of time¬†for the Bloomsbury event on 24 March, and I’m also now just short¬†of halfway¬†way through¬†Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge. And I decided I would also try to squeeze another Stephen King novel in so on Saturday afternoon I started Cell which I had completely forgotten I had until it caught my eye while I was looking for something¬†else, and I’m working my way through that at a rate of knots.

The Jane Eyre Update

I have actually made a start with this and I’m three chapters in and already finding Jane herself to be a bit of a pain but I’m going to persevere, though I need to get moving.

New Books

No new books this week. I am counting the days until the embargo finishes and I can go on a wee bit of a spree.

There are a couple of lovely bookish events coming up this week so it’s all very exciting.

Bride of the Book God

Follow brideofthebook on Twitter

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence
