Favourite Things Friday
These are my all time favourite books. I hated reading when I was at school but once I left I devoured lots and lots of books at first it was all Sci-fi/Fantasy then I went to Historical Novels, now I just about anything. About 10 years ago maybe more I decided that I might start reading some classics which are well represented in my all time favourite books, ones that I go back to again and again.
I am not really a romantic person and don't go in for sentimentality but these are all love stories so go figure.
Persuasion by Jane Austen love it and I watch the Amanda Root/Ciaran Hinds Version often (stay away from that horrible recent adaption it was a bit of a joke).
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte about time the BBC did a remake if they haven't already.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte my all time favourite of the Bronte sisters novels, my copy is well worn.
The Guernsey Literacy & Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer, this was the author's first and last novel and it is a delight from cover to cover. I don't think I have even leant this out to the girls to read.
Now join in Mrs P Favourite Things Friday.
