For the Love of Reading | October 2019

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld: This was a reread from my bookshelf and it’s a title I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned before. The premise of this story is quite simple – it’s Pride and Prejudice re-imagined for the 21st Century and it is utterly brilliant!

Sittenfeld also wrote the excellent American Wife and Prep.

The Outlander Series (Books 1-3) by Diana Gabaldon: Claire and Jamie are set to return to the small screen in February 2020, so I decided to attempt a complete re-read of all eight books before then. (Book nine is also due at some point next year). This fantasy series sees Claire Randall with a husband in one century and a lover in another.  At times, the Highlands of Scotland in the time of the Risings threaten to steal the show from Claire’s romp across history with the delicious Jamie. I’m not a reader of the fantasy genre ordinarily, but for Jamie, I make an exception.

One thought on “For the Love of Reading | October 2019

  1. Always appreciate book referrals. I’ve tried both the books & the TV series of Outlander, but I must be the only one, but just not a series that engaged me. I’ll see if the library has Eligible as I am a big fan of P&P … oh Mr Darcy (Coline Firth)!
