Santa Got Lost

A quite belated catch up post (also, happy new year! So says she a mere eleven days into the new year…) on what Santa bought me over Christmas. Some were a gift to myself and the rest were picked out for myself on behalf of others who didn’t know which books to get me. :-p


The titles are:

  • Therese Raquin by Emile Zola
  • Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh
  • Emma by Jane Austen (which I’ve already broken in and halfway through)
  • Keep the Aspidistra Flying by George Orwell
  • The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole
  • The Monk by Matthew Lewis
  • Candide and Other Stories by Voltaire
  • Oxford Dictionary of Literary Terms
  • The Finkler Question by Howard Jacobson

A nice loot and something to get the year off to a strong start. I’m also seriously running out of room. And, of course, I forgive Santa for being late with the presents…


      1. LOL Mae … is this one of those situations where you put them on the bed, take them off the bed to sleep each night, and then in the morning put them on the bed again … ad infinitum. I know that story!

  1. I really loved Therese Racquin when I read it last year for Tamara and Bookbath’s Paris in July. It was very suspenseful, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. The rest of the stack looks great, too!
