My hubby is completely to blame for my book buying this week. He won £10 on the lottery and gave it to me to spend on books. So who am I to say no!
1)Wedlock:How Georgian Britain's Worst Husband Met His Match by Wendy Moore - this is one the books that is being discussed on Channel 4's TV Book Club. From what I can gather this is a non fiction book based on the real story of Mary Eleanor Bowes, the richest heiress in eighteenth-century Britain. It tells the story of her brutal marriage to a handsome soldier called Andrew Robinson Stoney.
2) Gifted by Marilyn Kaye. I didn't buy this one, it was given to me by a friend who raved about it. She said I will love it. I don't know much about it, only that the main character has an extraordinary gift; similar to a character from Heroes.
3) Kiss of Life by Daniel Waters. A Young Adult book about zombies. I wish I had checked the reviews first though, as after looking on Amazon, I may have picked a dodo.
4) The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. With lots of talk about her new book 'The Swan Thieves', I thought I should try and read this one first.
5) and 6) The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman. I now have the whole trilogy, so I hope to get round to reading them again this year.
What books did you get this week?
