Hello! Just thought I would share another unboxing with you all – as I know how nosey we all are as bookish folk!
I’ve recently signed up for 3 months with Bookishly for their Classics & A Cuppa subscription package. So each month for 3 months you are sent 3 books from the Penguin’s Little Black Classics books, alongside a fabulous bookmark and a packet of yummy tea or coffee to suit your needs! I’ve found this to be a fabulous way of adding to my bookshelves and discovering some new classics that I’ve shamefully not heard of or read!!
They arrive beautifully packaged up so you can pretend it’s your birthday when they arrive!!
And here’s what books I received this month…
Stancliffe’s Hotel by Charlotte Bronte
‘Reader, if you’re ready, so am I.’
These witty vignettes, set in Charlotte Brontë’s imaginary world of Angria, feature debauched aristocrats, high-society courtesans and the rakish, brooding hero Zamorna, and offer a fascinating insight into Brontë’s early writing.
One of 46 new books in the bestselling Little Black Classics series, to celebrate the first ever Penguin Classic in 1946. Each book gives readers a taste of the Classics’ huge range and diversity, with works from around the world and across the centuries – including fables, decadence, heartbreak, tall tales, satire, ghosts, battles and elephants.
Matilda by Mary Shelley
‘I gained his secret and we were both lost for ever’.
Mary Shelley’s dark story of a bereaved man’s disturbing passion for his daughter was suppressed by her own father, and not published for over a century.
The Beautiful Cassandra by Jane Austen
‘She has many rare and charming qualities, but Sobriety is not one of them.’
A selection of Austen’s dark and hilarious early writings – featuring murder, drunkenness, perjury, theft, poisoning, women breaking out of prison, men forging wills and babies biting off their mothers’ fingers…
And from Jenier World of Teas there is a sample of..
Fruit & Blossoms Rooibos in pyramid tea bags is a great way to enjoy this refreshing mix of luxury Rooibos tea, fruits and herbs including rosehips, dried red and black currants, lavender and rose petals. The taste is fruity and flavoursome with wonderful floral notes.
Very happy again this month with the books, tea and bookmark I received! Roll on next month!!
