My wish-list for 2011 (or, part of it)

Tweet What exciting things have you all got planned for this year? Anything special you are planing to do/want to do in relation to Jane Austen (or something similar) perhaps? Events you are attending? Places you want to go to? Some sewing project you have in mind or a book that you feel it’s time to read? Or anything else fun! There are a few events that I would like to attend (actually there are more than a few, but to get them all in might be slightly difficult…). – The Jane Austen festival in Bath, obviously! – A week … Continue reading

Another big favourite of mine: Little House on the Prairie

Tweet One of the gifts I received for Christmas (thanks Gabi!) was a box with a season of the Little House on the Prairie series. I was very happy to recieve this, and though I have not had a chance to watch it yet (with four teenage boys around it’s not the easiest thing in the world… :P) I am really looking forward to doing so! I realized that I have never yet written anything on here about the Little House on the Prairie books. I can’t see why I haven’t, they’ve been great favourites with me for many years! … Continue reading

Classics goes Horror?

Tweet I think by this time everyone has heard about Pride and Predjudice and Zombies, and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. And more and more books like that make their appearences now. When I was in Bath I visited the local Waterstones (bookstore) and found this shelf there: I was quite amazed by it! Apart from the afore mentioned Pride and Predjudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters there was also: Mr Darcy Vampyre, Vampire Darcy’s Desire, Little Vampire Women, Queen Victoria Demon Hunter, Henry VIII Wolfman, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, Android Karenina and Jane Slayer. … Continue reading

A Weekend With Mr Darcy

Tweet I bought this book when I was in England. Having heard about it before it was one of the things I had planned to buy when over there. And upon arriving at the airport in England I went into one of the bookstores they have there (it has become a sort of tradition, you always have to go there when arriving!) and one of the first things I saw was this book on the shelf! However I waited to buy it until just before I was leaving to go back home, I would’t have had too much time for … Continue reading

Great Expectations

Tweet On and off during the summer I have been reading Dickens famous novel Great Expectations. I’ve read some other books at the same time, that is why it has taken such a long time, because otherwise this book is a much thinner sized one than most other Dickens. So, I just recently finished it, and even though it is not one of my favourites of his books I did like it. I like all his books that I’ve read so far! Once again Dickens shows his masterly talent in telling a story, in this case the story of Pip, … Continue reading

Some Swedish Books

Tweet I haven’t written a lot about Swedish books on here have I. The reason for that is probably mainly that I hardly ever read any Swedish books. And why? Well because when I can I prefer to read books in their original language, and I just happen to read mostly English books for some reason. There are so many more books to chose from in English! Swedish is a very small language after all. But even so we do of course have our fair share of books and classics too. A few that I thought of… Selma Lagerlöf is … Continue reading
