Desiree vs. Mr. Darcy

desiree Some time ago I blogged about the horrible “Mr. Darcy takes a wife”, a book that became one of the few DNFs in my reading life. With a heavy heart I decided to put it up on my swap site and see whether there is someone who would like to read that sorry effort.

Yep, there is! It seems like I’ll be able to swap the book AND get an old childhood favourite on top of it in the process. When I was a girl I devoured Désirée. What a fantastic book for girls and I’m pretty sure I will enjoy reading it again even now, many years later.

I had totally forgotten about Desiree, I must have lost my copy in the course of various moves and now a nice hardcover edition in the original German will come back to me! Totally made up about this!

  1. I have a book like that. It is called The Fifth Book of Peace but I called it The Fifth Book of Torture. I made it a third of the way through. Maybe I’ll do a giveaway of it because I found it on my shelves the other day.

    Glad you are getting the book you like!


  2. I’m so looking forward to reading it again. I read it when I was 12 or so, so this will be like reading it new.
