Reading list

As the days get colder, I take comfort in having a big pile of books on hand to cuddle up on the couch with and dive into. Actually, it doesn't matter what time of year it is, I get panicky if I am on my last book and don't have something lined up to read after that. So here is my current hoard, it's a mix of library and bought books.

Some garden inspiration, some fantasy escapism, a favourite from childhood, and a new Better Homes and Gardens magazine...

Oh, and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? Someone told me there was a book with that name, and I thought, that can't be true, but oh - it is! It is the origninal Pride and Prejudice story, but with the added bonus of hordes of zombies (AKA unmentionables, or dreadfuls). And Elizabeth the Zombie Slayer. Fortunately Mr Darcy quite likes a lady with fair features and some uncommon skill with a blade.

And, I thought this was rather interesting - the cover of Trickster with a bookmark I made back in 2003.


  1. I have a similar stack of books, plus 2 shelves. Clearly, my eyes are bigger than the time I have to read.

    I just loved Pride & Prejudice and Zombies. I even made my husband watch the Colin Firth version of P&P, so he'd have a better idea of context when he read the book. Well, that and revenge for his ongoing refusal to watch girly movies while I agree to watch (and usually enjoy) his movies (samurais, superheroes and robots).

  2. Be sure to let us know if there are any 'must reads' in there, I always need recommendations.
