It's Monday! A little Respite

I made it through last week's tumultuous school activities well and now I have a little bit of a break before I take on the final stretch before graduation. I was able to go to the local homeschool convention, which was amazing and buy too many books (as if there is such a thing!) from my favorite used books vendor! I had to restrain myself from buying more even though there were so many I saw that I wanted. See what I ended up buying below!

Currently Reading

  • The Valley of Vision
  • Armadale by Wilkie Collins

Finished This Week

  • Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
  • Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott (re-read)

Coming Soon

  • The Borrowers by Mary Norton 

Bought 

  • All the rest of the Anne of Green Gables series EXCEPT Anne of Green Gables as I already had it. I'm so excited about these! After re-reading them all this year I was longing to have my own copies!
  • The Chronicles of Prydain series by Lloyd Alexander (The Book of Three, The Black Cauldron, The Castle of Lyre, Taran Wanderer, High King)- A favorite fantasy series growing up and one I'm planning to re-read this year. :)
  • Waverley by Sir Walter Scott- After finishing re-reading Ivanhoe and loving it, I knew I needed more Sir Walter Scott on my bookshelf! 
  • Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier- I was already planning on reading it this year and now I have my own copy!
