Most Anticipated Releases for Late 2016

This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic is Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases For the Second Half of the Year. I'm not very good at keeping up with new releases so there are a lot fewer than ten books this week, but there are a few coming out later this year that I want to read, so I've decided to participate anyway.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling (releases July 31)

I haven't been following this particularly closely, and I do have a few doubts about it. Buuuut it's a new Harry Potter book, so of course I'm going to read it. :)
 

The Archers of Isca by Caroline Lawrence (releases October 6)

This is book #2 in the Roman Quests series. I read the first one last month and really enjoyed it, so I'm looking forward to reading this one when it comes out.
 

A Portrait of Emily Price by Katherine Reay (releases November 1)

I quite enjoyed Dear Mr Knightley and Lizzy and Jane, perhaps not quite as much as lots of other people seem to have done, but enough to make me want to read more of the Katherine Reay's books. I probably won't be rushing to get it when it comes out (I haven't got around to The Brontë Plot yet) but I do intend to read it at some point.

  1. I am so excited for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! Sadly the bookstore I work for is not doing a Midnight Release party (we're downtown and there's too many restaurant bars in the area to make it a place people with children would like to travel) but I plan on going to one at a B&N with my nieces.

    1. That sounds cool! I'll probably get more excited about it closer to the release date :)

My Spring TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is Ten Books on My Spring TBR. I'm very much of a mood reader and usually not very good at sticking to lists, so there is a good chance my reading over the next few months will be completely different to what I've listed below! That said, I really do intend to read most of them soon - we'll see!

The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis (my Classics Club Spin book) Death on the Cherwell by Mavis Doriel Hay The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien (after I finish The Two Towers, which will hopefully be this week) Jane of Lantern Hill by L.M. Montgomery (for the Old School Kidlit reading challenge) Once by various authors A Man of Some Repute by Elizabeth Edmondson The Sound of Diamonds by Rachelle Rea A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L'Engle Thalia by Frances Faviell The Oxford Inklings by Colin Duriez Have you read any of these? If so, what did you think of them? And what are you looking fo…

I Love Austen Week Tag!

Hamlette at Hamlette's Soliloquy is hosting I Love Austen Week this week - a week dedicated to all things Jane Austen! Be sure to check out the festivities here if you feel so inclined. Here are my answers to the week's tag. 1.  Which did you experience first, a Jane Austen book or a movie based on one? My first proper experience with Jane Austen was the 2005 Pride & Prejudice film. I didn't know much about the story beforehand and wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I LOVED it. So I quickly started searching out other film adaptations, and of course the books themselves. I think I had seen at least one film version of each book before reading it.
2.  What is your favourite Austen book? Until a few days ago I would have said Sense & Sensibility, but I've recently started rereading Pride & Prejudice and suspect that it is about to take over. There are just so many good bits that I'd forgotten! 3.  Favourite heroine?  Why do you like her best? This is…

Classics Club Spin #15

It's time for another Classics Club Spin! I've quite enjoyed participating in these so far, and it's definitely a good incentive to get another book crossed off my list. The idea is that I list twenty unread books from my Classics Club list, and then on Friday a number will be announced, which is the book I have to read and post about by May 1st.
