Friday Finds: Mary Anne

Mary Anne by Daphne Du Maurier

Friday Finds is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Here’s the blurb from the publisher:

An ambitious, stunning, and seductive young woman, Mary Anne finds the single most rewarding way to rise above her miserable cockney world: she will become the mistress to a royal duke. In doing so, she provokes a scandal that rocks Regency England. Mary Anne glitters with sex, scandal, corruption, and the privileged world of high society.

Based on the true story of one of du Maurier’s own distant relatives, Mary Anne’s love of money and the men who spend it embroil her in risks that threaten her very existence.

How can I go wrong with this one? I love the new cover too.

She Liked It, Then She Told a Friend and so on and so on…

Today’s Book Blogger Appreciation Week topic has to do with books. Books that you heard about on another blog, read and then loved! Well, way back in April, Raych over at Books I Done Read reviewed My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier and based on her review alone, I knew that I had to read the book.

She included a lot of CAPS in her review which told me that I must drop everything and read it now. She also stretched her words out reallyyyyy longgggg to get her point across. When Raych does that, my ears perk up. I can’t help it.

So I read it and I LOVED it and now I am using CAPS to describe my OVERALL EXCITEMENT OVER IT. It hasn’t stayed on my shelf since I’ve read it. I have been lending out to everyone I know!

What great books have you discovered?
