  1. It sounds like you’ve had a good bookish week! I can’t believe I’ve not heard of the Samantha Ellis book about Anne Bronte – Anne is my favourite of the Bronte sisters so this is definitely a book I need to get soon. I’m so pleased you mentioned it in your post. 🙂 I hope you get to 80% ratio on NetGalley soon. It took me ages to get above 80% but once I got there it’s made me focus on not letting it ever get below that again.
    My weekly wrap-up post is here:
