Happy World Book Day!

I completely forgot that it was today until I logged onto Twitter and discovered hundreds of tweets about it! Oops! I have been very busy lately though, as I started a new job last week and I’ve been doing a lot of training!

So I’ve not read anything for a few days, since I finished “The Goldfinch” at the weekend – I will write a review for that when I have more time!

You may have seen in my Weekly Bookish Round-up from last week that I was lusting after a full set of the Narnia books after seeing them in The Works for £7.99. Well, I went back today after work and bought it! Yay!

"The Chronicles of Narnia" by CS Lewis

“The Chronicles of Narnia” by CS Lewis

Beautiful illustrations!

It’s exactly the same design as the one I (stupidly) got rid of when I was a teenager, so I was desperate to own it again. It brings back fond memories of a childhood holiday during which I first discovered the series when I was given the books by my parents. I can’t wait to re-read the series and to see how different it is reading them as an adult!

    Sometimes you just have to track down the same copy of a beloved book! I finally got another copy of my high school edition of Wuthering Heights and i couldn’t be happier 😀

    • Yeah I know! I did the same with “Z for Zachariah” which I studied at school. I think I’m just trying to rebuild my childhood/teenage library again!
