One Book, Two Book, Three Book Meme

I’ve really enjoyed reading various bloggers’ responses to this meme (I think it was started by Simon at Stuck in a Book) over the past few weeks so decided to have a go at it myself.

1. The book I’m currently reading:

The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton. I read The House of Mirth and Summer when I was a teen, but somehow never got to this. It is marvelously written and I am very much enjoying reading about New York in the Gilded Age.

 

 

 

 

 

2. The last book I finished:

Faith by Jennifer Haigh. It is a superior piece of contemporary women’s fiction.

 

 

 

 

 

3. The next book I want to read:

The Odd Women by George Gissing. I’ve already started this book and I soon want to return to the story of two spinsters and their struggle for survival in Victorian England.

 

 

 

 

4. The last book I bought:

The Slaves of Solitude by Patrick Hamilton. All of the glowing reviews around the blogosphere persuaded me that I must read this.

 

 

 

 

 

5. The last book I was given:

Sadly, I haven’t received any books for gifts in ages! My family prefers to give me gift cards as they are not readers and don’t care to shop for books. I did win The Lake Shore Limited by Sue Miller from Vintage/Anchor books today so I’ll count that as a gift.
