Bout of Books 31 Starts Today!

Hello Lovelies and Happy Monday!


Bout of Books 31 starts today and I’m so excited to dive into my book pile.


I’m aiming for 6-7 books—I’ve selected 5 that I definitely want to finish this week and I’m hoping I’ll manage to pick up two romances but I’m not sure which ones I’ll be in the mood to read.


I’ll be updating daily on Instagram @simplyangelarenee and I’ll have updates on the blog Thursday the 13th  then the final recap post will be on Tuesday the 18th

Here’s the 5 books I’m reading this week


The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey—originally published in 1951 this is about a recuperating inspector looking into whether or not Richard III murdered his nephews. Seeing as this is from 1951—long before finding Richard’s remains was even a thought—I’m expecting this to be dated but I’m still eager to see what it contains.


Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys—originally published in 1966, this is a prequel to Jane Eyre that tells the story of Bertha—the wife in the attic. I’m a massive Jane Eyre fan and I’ve been eager to see how Rhys portrayed Bertha.


The Bones of a King: Richard III Rediscoverd –this was composed by the Greyfriars Research Team and I’m eager to see what insights this sheds on the dig and the discovery of Richard III.


The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner—dual timelines, a tale of poison and revenge…that’s all I need to know for this to pique my interest.


Every Vow You Break by Peter Swanson—I have no idea what this mystery/thriller is about but the cover has me curious.
