Daphne du Maurier Reading Week

Announcement: Daphne du Maurier Reading Week May 11-17, 2020

It’s Daphne du Maurier Reading Week, hosted by HeavenAli over on her blog.

Since I’d been wanting to read more works by Daphne du Maurier anyway—and had even bought the books—I knew I wanted to participate in this when I saw the announcement on her blog.

I have to admit that my planning didn’t work out correctly (I blame the glitch on COVID-19). Here I am on Tuesday of Daphne du Maurier Reading Week, and I’m still finishing up a long book that I started late last week. Therefore, I may have to extend my reading and writing for #DDMreadingweek into next week, but I do intend to participate, though belatedly.

These are the books I intend to read:

vase of roses with 3 books by Daphne du Maurier: The Scapegoat, The House on the Strand, The Birds and Other Stories
  • The Scapegoat
  • The Birds and Other Stories
  • The House on the Strand

Thanks to HeavenAli for hosting this event.

And now, I must get back to finishing that other book . . .

The House on the Strand Is excellent. I set it for a summer school several years ago when we were looking at books that took place in more than one time period and everybody enjoyed it very much. I hope you do too.

This will be a reread for me. I read it long, long ago and remember only the time travel aspect. I’ve come to appreciate time travel more lately than I did when I was young, so I thought I’d take another look at this novel. Thanks for reading and commenting.

I hope to write about The House on the Strand before the week has passed but don’t count on it! Despite being a huge du Maurier fan, I didn’t particularly enjoy this one unlike Cafe Society and her group. I wonder what you will make of it 🙂

I thought about you, Sandra, when I discovered Daphne du Maurier Reading Week because I remember your posts about the writer. I’m looking forward to reading more of her works. And I should probably, at some point, also read a biography. So many books . . .

I'd love to hear from you!
