This is a weekly meme hosted by Kathryn at BOOK DATE!

Post the books completed last week, the books you are currently reading, and the books you hope to finish this week.

Books Completed The Last Three Weeks:

JAMAICA INN by Daphen Du Maurier

I didn't know Ms. Du Maurier had written this book.  I only knew of REBECCA.  Did you know?

Wonder where I have been since 1936?  :)  

My review is the book's title.

A terrific read.  Gothic and dark with wonderful description.

Have you read JAMAICA INN?

Absolutely LOVED this book.

Review and Giveaway scheduled for December 8.

********************

The books below are not necessarily in the order I have planned to read them.  

I normally read in order of publication or tour date.

And....these are not for reading in the upcoming week.  :)  They are books into and including all of 2015 and 2016.

The "list" is a means of keeping me organized.

A visual display helps a lot for organization along with my Excel list. 

   
 
How was your reading week?

  6. I love how you have a visible list of books to read at some point...

    I loved Jamaica Inn, but it was years ago that I read it...I do have a copy waiting for my reread, along with Rebecca.

    I also hope to read The Things We Keep and The Swans of Fifth Avenue in the next few weeks.

    Enjoy! Thanks for visiting my blog.

  7. I am indeed enjoying The Seafront Tearooms. It is very good on audio - English narrator I think and she does the French very well. I want tea and scones now!

  9. I read Jamaica Inn as a teenager long ago and loved it. I love it still. As for what I am reading now, I'm just starting Magna Carta: The Birth of Liberty, Dan Jones' latest popular history. I very much enjoy his writing and am looking forward to reading this one.

  12. I did read Jamaica Inn years ago, as I did with Rebecca, and also saw the movie on tv long ago. You've reminded me that these are good ones :) Some of your other titles are jumping out at me-- a good list with a nice mix of genres, Elizabeth.

  13. It has been years but I do recall reading Jamaica Inn by DuMaurier. I had a strong love of Gothic back in the '70s. Sounds like you have been enjoying your reading. And you have some good sounding books coming up. Isn't that a good thing?! I hope enjoying continues for you.
