Happy Mother's Day! From the library this week I took out a Mother's Day themed book: The Mother-Daughter Book Club by Heather Vogel Frederick. I've already read the most recent books in the series, Pies & Prejudice and Home for the Holidays. I also took out Matilda by Roald Dahl, which I read ages ago. My biggest bookish regret is giving away my Roald Dahl paperbacks when I bought the Roald Dahl treasury when I was a kid. The treasury is super cool, but it only has excerpts of the books. Matilda is the source of one of my greatest fears: the Chokey. I actually read somewhere that Roald Dahl wrote Chitty Chitty Bang Bang which means that he created another one of my fears: the child catcher.
More Roald Dahl! From my library bookshop I bought The BFG, which I have read but it was ages ago. I think there was a cartoon as well? I remember the basic plot and something to do with the Queen? I also bought The Secret Order of the Gumm Street Girls by Elisa Primavera because it looked strange in the best way possible.
What new books did you receive this week?
