It’s the weekend!
Whilst I won’t have lots of time this weekend for reading as I’m hard at work on TP&HS: Book 2, when I do get some spare time in between staring at a blank screen/crying in frustration/laughing at my own stupid jokes, I’m going to be reading My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier and Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery.
I’m not *loving* Anne of Avonlea as much as I’d hoped because it feels like a regurgitation of the same scenes from Anne of Green Gables. Which is a shame, but it does mean I’m looking forward to the next book, Anne of the Island, a little bit more because I know that her writing can be so much more exciting! I still love Anne and think she’s amazing, but this isn’t quite doing it for me.
On the other hand, My Cousin Rachel is SO GOOD. I’m only a few chapters in but it’s already so gripping and atmospheric. Exactly what I’ve come to know and love with her books!
What are you hoping to read this weekend?

    Have a lovely weekend Lucy! ❤️ I'm yet to read anything by Daphne du Maurier but I've had Rebecca and My Cousin Rachel on my list for quite some time now! 😊 I'm not planning on reading anything this weekend as I'm busy working on a uni essay, but hopefully I'll have time to pick up a book again soon 😊

    I just got My Cousin Rachel and was hoping it would be like this! ❤️

    I felt the same way about Anne of Avonlea. Anne of the Island is so much better—especially toward the end. Anne’s House of Dreams is the most complex, in my opinion. I’m reading Open Road Summer this weekend and I’ve just ordered Shirley! I’ve only read Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre, but after watching “To Walk Invisible” and stumbling upon your Bronte vlogs while researching the sisters, I’m excited to dive back into their work! Plus, all your Shirley posts have me so intrigued to read it, now. 📚 Good luck writing this weekend!

    Perfect reads 😍

  • @lu_mierl 15 March, 2019

    I have the same edition of My Cousin Rachel and am quite excited to start it! The only thing holding me back is the binding of the book, it‘s so hard to keep the pages open! 😂

  • @ginnykestel 15 March, 2019

    Shirley! Your favorite book of all time!

  • @rebeccaivyhawes 15 March, 2019

    I’m currently reading my cousin Rachel. It’s very atmospheric. Love that edition 😍

  • @girlsreadthis 15 March, 2019

    It was my choice for book group this month so have gone for Cold Comfort Farm. Only a few pages in but reminding me a bit of Wilde. I have high hopes!

  • @reese.stephanie 15 March, 2019

    Anne of the Island is fantastic! Keep pushing through!

  • @iamnaythmoore 15 March, 2019

    I’ve added the Anne of Green Gables to my TBR this year. Have you watched the Netflix series Anne with an E?

  • @etcrafts 15 March, 2019

    I tried My cousin Rachel but couldn't get on with it.

  • @lydiammassiah 15 March, 2019

    Oh YES! I think My Cousin Rachel is possibly better than Rebecca. Absolutely superb. And the ending is 😍😍😍
