Not Enough Bookshelves: Five Books!

Five Books!

I saw this meme over at Angieville and then again at InkCrush and thought it looked fun. So here we go.

1) Book I am currently reading

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

Ah this book, this book! I adore it. I am forcing myself to go slowly because I just can’t bare to rush such gorgeous  evocative writing, but I am also desperate to get to the end to see what happeneds (and seriously what is going to happen? I have no idea). The perfect combination, right?

2) Last book I finished.

Liesl and Po by Lauren Oliver

A lovely, sweet, sad ghost story.

3) Next book I want to read

Tie between The Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor and Crossed by Ally Condie

4) Last book I bought

Katie in London by James Mayhew

Following a trip up to London my son became obsessed with Big Ben and the London Eye. It’s surprisingly hard to find book featuring them. This one is gorgeous though and involves one of the Trafalgar Square lions coming to life (now there’s an idea NaNoers!)

5) Last book I was given

My lovely Mum gave me the deluxe penguin edition of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. It’s so pretty.

If you take part let me know, I’d love to see what you’re reading.


  1. Oh, that Jane Eyre cover is SO pretty.

    Raindrop Reflections


  2. I am so happy you're savoring THE SCORPIO RACES. I felt exactly the same way. It's breathtaking is what it is.

    And what a great edition of JANE EYRE. Nice Mommy you have. 🙂


  3. Rida – I know I love the Penguin classic editions. I am now longing for the Secret Garden one.

    Angie – I am loving it, I was a bit worried as I was so attached to Grace and Sam, but I do think this is her best book so far. Amazing.

    I do 🙂


  4. Oh my goodness, that Jane Eyre is beautiful! And I need to be reading The Scorpio Races, clearly!


  5. that jane eyre cover is beyond gorgeous. genius. your mum sounds awesome, getting you books 🙂


I adore comments, so thanks so much for taking the time. I'll try and return the favour 😀
