What I'm Reading Wednesday

Happy Wednesday to you all!

I considered following in the footsteps of some of my fellow bloggers in doing a 'Wordless Wednesday' photo post, but we all know that silence is not my style. With another review heading your way tomorrow (on one of the best YA books I have read in recent memory), I thought I would use today to review what I'm currently reading.

Now, full disclosure, I have tried many times to rein myself in and read just one book at a time. While I've managed to significantly reduce the number of books I juggle (mainly because the pile next to my bed was becoming a safety hazard), I still can't bring myself to commit to working my way through one at a time. 

So, true to form, here are my current reads:


You will likely remember this one from my previous post and subsequent raving about the magic of the Waterstones '3 for the price of 2' sale. I cannot begin to express how much I dislike film/TV adaptation book covers. I'm a purist that way. But the recent Channel 4 adaptation of 'Labyrinth' meant that my desperate search for a copy without this obnoxious cover was doomed to failure. So I gave in. But it's proving an interesting read so far and there will absolutely be a review coming within the next week or so. Having stayed clear of the TV series, I'm interested to hear the thoughts of anyone who caught it (particularly if you have also had a chance to read the book).


Yes, sir. Finally jumping on the bandwagon with this one. I've been admittedly reluctant to give it a go since I am a massive Pride and Prejudice fan (if the constant references to Colin Firth didn't already give me away). It's seemingly difficult to enter a bookshop without being faced with a preponderance of Pride and Prejudice spin-offs. And every one eats away at my soul a little. But I've heard really good things about 'Death Comes To Pemberley' and, as a big mystery fan, I'm hoping that it'll be a winner. So far, so good!

And finally...


Yippee for Amazon deliveries! I've actually read 'The Eyre Affair' before and absolutely loved it. When I set out to start this blog, I decided that I wanted to combine reviews of new-to-me books with old favourites as a means of guiding other bibliophiles to some great reads. 'The Eyre Affair' was high up on my list of top reads and I sought out a £1(!) used copy from Amazon so that I could give it a re-read before review. Hardly a problem since it is such a brilliant book and definitely one that I can't wait to review for you all.

So that's what's going on with me right now. Lots of good reviews to come. Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday - not long until the weekend!
