As I mentioned way back in one of my #BEDM posts (here) – I come from a family that loves books! I don’t read as much as I would like to in recent years but I think I have found a solution to that – a series of classic books released by ROADS Publishing. I was lucky enough to be gifted two of the books by their PR and it was love at first sight!
There are 12 books in the series:
- The Great Gatsby
- Madame Bovary
- The Hound of the Baskervilles
- The Scarlet Letter
- To the Lighthouse
- The Picture of Dorian Grey
- Heart of Darkness
- Frankenstien, Or, The Modern Prometheus
- Wuthering Heights
- Notes from the Underground
I’m going to be honest and say I had hoped I would receive Wuthering Heights as it is one of my favourites but now that I have received the two others (Madame Bovary and the Picture of Dorian Grey) I am delighted for the opportunity to read something new!
The design on these books has been kept amazingly simple. I love the striking image that is on the front cover of each book; tying them together yet marking them out as beautifully different at the same time.
Considering they are paperbacks these books are incredibly luxurious feeling in your hands. The have a pseudo-dust cover flap on the cover which is a great addition. Each book is a different colour and I could just imagine how stunning they would look on any bookshelf.
How much do these beauties cost? A mere €12.50/£10! For a book that is such great quality they are brilliant value and I know I will be buying at least one more of them once I have finished these two. I wouldn’t be surprised if family members also got them as gifts in the next few months!
Which of these will you be buying? Please do remember though – a book is for life! 😉
