Thank you to Heavenali for again hosting Daphne du Maurier week. May 13 is Daphne’s birthday! I look forward to participating.
What I’ve already read
I’m not a fan of this cover, but The King’s General is my all-time favorite Du Maurier (so far). It’s currently on sale for $1.99 for Kindle in the USA.
I miss unique book covers. Branding an author can be too blah–this one clearly illustrates that. The House on the Strand is my most recently read novel by Daphne.
As tie-in covers go, this one isn’t that bad. Rebecca is, of course, an amazing read. Laurence Olivier was pretty amazing in the movie version, even though there are changes to the story. I’ve not made it through any of the more recent film versions.
My Cousin Rachel was a good read, though I, for once, predicted something that happened.
I read and reviewed this biography of Dear Old Daph: Manderley Forever by Tatiana de Rosnay
What I Will Likely Read
These are the two I own–both are languishing on my Kindle. I’ve included Loving Spirit in my list for a few Classics Club Spins, but the correct number was never called. So, it will be one of these two unless I can find an audio of another that I haven’t read. I seem to be doing best with audio at the moment but have started on Jamaica Inn too slowly to finish it for the 1936 Club week.
So many choices! I have these two lovely books above and more (see below) on my Kindle to dip into during the week as well. Below are the “extras” to choose from on my Kindle.
