-Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
-The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
-Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
-Lady Chatterley's Lover by D. H. Lawrence
-A Dance with Jane Austen by Susannah Fullerton. My boyfriend's parents sent me this one since I love Jane Austen and I love to dance. They love sending us non-fiction Jane Austen stuff...I'm actually curious how many more books of this stripe they'll be able to find.
-Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain. I bought this for myself on my birthday because I forgot to put it on my list. I finished it the other day and it was magnificent.
Our Broke & Bookish book haul is inspired by memes like IMM & Stacking the Shelves& Mailbox Monday. This is just our very simple way of doing it collaboratively so we can participate in all of them and not have to choose one.
