THROWBACK THURSDAY PICK OF THE WEEK

throwbackthursday

I began this Throwback Thursday meme as a way to share some of my old favorites as well as sharing books that I’m FINALLY getting around to reading that were published months or years ago. You know, the ones waiting patiently on my TBR list while I continue to pile more titles on top of them:)! I like that these older books are usually much easier than new releases to get a hold of at libraries and elsewhere.

My PICK this week is one I HAVEN’T read….

17899948

 

First Published in 1938, Rebecca has NEVER went out of print! 

Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again . . .

The novel begins in Monte Carlo, where our heroine is swept off her feet by the dashing widower Maxim de Winter and his sudden proposal of marriage. Orphaned and working as a lady’s maid, she can barely believe her luck. It is only when they arrive at his massive country estate that she realizes how large a shadow his late wife will cast over their lives–presenting her with a lingering evil that threatens to destroy their marriage from beyond the grave.

So, hear me out friends! This week’s post is all about a read that’s quite possibly been on my tbr the longest…am I the only one out there who hasn’t EVER read Rebecca?? I hope not because I thought it might be fun to open this pick up to a future discussion post with all of YOU! Anyone who’s interested in reading Rebecca and joining in on the discussion post would be welcome…you don’t have to be a blogger, you just have to be a reader:) I’m thinking a tentative date to have this read and my discussion post up will be Thursday, April 12th. I can’t wait to FINALLY read this and no longer feel left out. Looking forward to (hopefully) chatting with you all!

HAPPY READING!

  1. I’ve been wanting to read Rebecca forever and it recently got back on my radar from some Modern Mrs. Darcy list.

    I doubt I’ll be able to get it done by mid-April b/c I’m focusing on possible books for my Summer Reading Guide right now, but will probably read it later.

  2. Nice! I recently had Rebecca on my list of books I’ve never read. It was my number one book on that list that I’d like to read. I’d love to be part of a discussion post, but doubt I’ll get to it for April, either. Summer would be better for me.

    1. I’d love for you to participate…I can’t believe how many people haven’t read it, here I thought I’d be all alone:) I’ll adjust the date as it seems like most everyone who commented about wanting to read it can’t participate until later…that’s no problem for me!

  3. Quite possibly one of my most favorite books! 😍 I can’t tell you how many times I’ve reread it since I 1st read it when I was 14 although a reread is needed since it’s been a while! So glad you’re reading it!! 😊 Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

      1. I’d love to! I’ll have to look for the date and check my calendar! Mid-April till the beginning of May is always crazy for me because it’s final exam time, end of year, and final grades, etc so I’m like a chicken with it’s head cut off, lol. But I probably don’t need to reread it to join in even though I’d like to!
