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 forward to reading soon?

  1. The Screwtape Letters is on my TBR list, though not the one I made for TTT this week (which is here). And I actually have The Two Towers on my list, as I need to finish FOTR and start in on it.

    I haven't read Jane of Lantern Hill yet, but I want to!

    And I read Once back in December and really enjoyed it!

    1. I'm enjoying it, but taking a long time to read it :)

  3. I'm not sure how I've avoided the LOTR this long. I have never read or seen anything to do with it. I couldn't even tell you what it's about.... I would love to read it, someday, but the sheer size of the books and movies are frightened!
    The next book on my TBR is The Sky is Everywhere. But like you i usually choose depending on my mood.

    1. Yes, I'm enjoying LOTR but it's taking me a long time to read! I find it less intimidating thinking of it as three books - individually each of them is a lot more manageable.
      I've not heard of The Sky is Everywhere, but hope you enjoy it!

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. The Watsons by Jane AustenLorna Doone by R.D. BlackmoreAgnes Grey by Anne BrontëMy Antonia by Willa CatherThe Wisdom of Father Brown by G.K. ChestertonA Tale of Two Cities by Charles DickensThe Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan DoyleSylvia's Lovers by Elizabeth GaskellThe Little White Horse by Elizabeth GoudgeCotillion by Georgette HeyerElizabeth Captive Princess by Margaret IrwinThe Screwtape Letters by C.S.

Top Ten Tuesday: Forgotten Classics

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today's theme is Ten Hidden Gem Books in X Genre. I've decided go for classics, so I'm listing ten older books that have been mostly forgotten or that I think should be better known:
A Cathedral Courtshipby Kate Douglas Wiggin A sweet romantic tale combined with a tour of English cathedrals
The Heir of Redclyffe by Charlotte Mary Yonge A tragic Victorian bestseller
White Boots by Noel Streatfeild A story about family, friendship, and ice skating
The Story of the Treasure Seekers by E. Nesbit Six children determine to restore their family's fortunes - but things don't really go according to plan
Seven Sisters at Queen Anne's by Evelyn Smith Seven sisters go off to school for the first time,
Half Magic by Edward Eager A magic coin that only grants half of what you wish for - what could possibly go wrong?
Jane of Lantern Hillby L.M. Montgomery I've reviewed this recently here.
Young Bess by Margar…
