It has been a hectic last couple of weeks so I haven’t until now had a chance to sit down and go through the new issue of Shiny New Books. And what an excellent issue it is, full of an amazing variety of excellent reviews and interesting bookish articles.
I am also delighted by the issue because it marks my first – but hopefully not last – involvement with SNB. I reviewed three newly reissued Angela Thirkell novels and one of Christopher Milne’s memoirs, The Path Through the Trees. Two of my passions as a book blogger are introducing other readers to Angela Thirkell and discussing anything A.A. Milne related, so I’m tickled that this is how I was able to launch myself on SNB readers!
If you haven’t yet had a chance to sift through the new issue, do check it out! You could start by looking at a few of the reviews that caught my eye:
A.A. Milne: His Life by Ann Thwaite
Domestic Manners of the Americans by Frances Trollope
Women of the World by Helen McCarthy
An Island Odyssey by Hamish Haswell Smith
The Disinherited by Robert Sackville-West
Meeting the English by Kate Clanchy
Beatrice and Benedick by Marina Fiorato
