House of Trelawney | Hannah Rothschild

Calling it now. This will be a BBC comedy miniseries. An aged minor princess (not a main character) reminisces about splendid country house parties of her youth en route to Trelawney Castle. #arc #netgalley #anglophilesoflitsy

Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret are evacuated to a country house in Ireland during the blitz. Despite this thrilling premise, not much happens for three fourths of the book, when it abruptly tries to become a thriller. The plot focuses primarily on the flat and dull characters in charge of guarding the princesses. I received an advanced readers copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. #arc #Netgalley #anglophilesoflitsy

What‘s sweeter than honey? A Pettigrew #persephone #persephonebooks #anglophilesoflitsy

Aimeesue Oooh, Miss Pettigrew! I have the Persephone edition with the picture on the cover. Did those have the dove grey dust jackets too? Mine doesn't. Great find at a super price! (edited) 2mo
jillrhudy @Aimeesue It does have the jacket! And it was a gift from a colleague. She knows me well. 2mo

sudi The cover is so cute 💜 3mo
jillrhudy @Aimeesue Great article by the way 3mo
Aimeesue @jillrhudy There‘s a great piece by Sarah Dillon on BBC 4‘s Open Book where she does a close read of the porridge scene. (Sorry, but she also does a piece on … Raymond Chandler‘s The Big Sleep. He continues to stalk you!) http://drsarahdillon.com/radio/bbc-radio-4-open-book-close-reading-series/ 3mo

Jolted out of my book slump by this delicious novel of black humor set in the London blitz, as poignant as it is hilarious. Thanks for the recommendation @Aimeesue 💕 #anglophilesoflitsy

Aimeesue Any time! This really is a great book. 3mo

Refining Felicity | M.C. Beaton

A little very light fluff between other books. First in the School of Manners series. Initially published under the author‘s real name, Marion Chesney. #regency #romance #anglophilesoflitsy

Surely I haven‘t read 13 of these?!? But I‘ve read every one, so indeed I have. I gobbled it up like a hot hors d‘oevre but could not help feeling that it didn‘t quite meet my expectations. Bowen placing Georgiana and Darcy among the Happy Valley set should have been much more intriguing somehow. She‘s trying to do too much in too few pages and I missed Queenie. Wotcher, miss! #mystery #series #anglophilesoflitsy

My 4th read of this book is a listen. Reader Jane Entwhistle has a gift for making overt wit and even subtext twinkle with glee. And Pym is the queen of subtext. #pymphomania #pym #barbarapym #humor #anglophilesoflitsy #audiobook #libby

Aimeesue Subtext? Like Everard Bone? 😂😂😂 4mo
jillrhudy That‘s not all that subtle, I‘ll grant you. 😂 4mo
