Selma at the Abbey by E.J. Oxenham – cheesy-looking schoolgirl book that I picked up for 50 cents at a school book fair. Honestly, even if I can’t stomach the book, the 50 cents were well-spent just for blurbs at the back advertising Exciting Mystery Stories, Jennings (of the BBC) Stories, and Thrilling Western Stories.
Rilla of Ingleside and Jane of Lantern Hill by L.M. Montgomery – a lovely gift from Virago.
Summer Half, August Folly, and The Brandons by Angela Thirkell – an even lovelier gift from Virago.
Kilvert’s Diary edited by William Plomer – the public library was having a sale this weekend and I was delighted to find this there. It has been on my TBR list for ages. I do have a weakness for books by or about the clergy.
The Edwardians by Vita Sackville-West – another find at the library sale.
Mrs Miniver by Jan Struther – Can you believe I’ve never read this?
Chestnut Street by Maeve Binchy – I went shopping for Mother’s Day and instead came away with a book for myself. I read it immediately and loved every page, though it was bittersweet, knowing that Binchy is not around to write these wonderful stories any more.
Also, Little G by E.M. Channon is slowly working its way around the globe to me. It left Scotland the first week of March and I have high hopes it will arrive here eventually.
