A weekly features celebrating unread books on our shelves! Pick a book you own but haven’t read, write a post about it (suggestions: include what it’s about, why you want to read it, and when you got it), and link up.
This is hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies.
My choice this week:
Title: Under the Greenwood Tree
Author: Thomas Hardy
"Under the Greenwood Tree" is the story of the romantic entanglement between church musician, Dick Dewey, and the attractive new school mistress, Fancy Day. A pleasant romantic tale set in the Victorian era, "Under the Greenwood Tree" is one of Thomas Hardy's most gentle and pastoral novels. -Goodreads
When/how I got it:
I've had this book in my possession for about 5 years, I'm fairly certain my mum gave it to me, but I'm not sure if it's hers, or if she bought it for me.
Why I want to read it:
I want to read more Victorian novels, and my old English teacher used to recommend Thomas Hardy novels to everyone, so I guess that's had an effect on my wanting to read it. Also a "pleasant romantic tale" sounds like an easy and nice read!
