Goodreads Monday – 13/01/2020

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme that was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. The meme is pretty easy to follow, to participate simply choose a random book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it!

This week’s book:

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark


At the staid Marcia Blaine School for Girls in Edinburgh, Scotland, teacher extraordinaire Miss Jean Brodie is unmistakably, and outspokenly, in her prime.

She is passionate in the application of her unorthodox teaching methods and strives to bring out the best in each one of her students.

Determined to instill in them independence, passion, and ambition, Miss Brodie advises them, “Safety does not come first. Goodness, Truth, and Beauty come first. Follow me.”

And they do — but one of them will betray her. 

Why I Want to Read This

Because it is a modern classic first published in the 1960s and I’ve seen it on many must read lists. Anytime I see a book on a must read list it gets added to my TBR lol!

Has anyone else read this book yet? Let’s chat in the comments below.

    1. Yup! I am a very regular library user. Typically going once every two weeks with 12 loans each time (for the moodiness you see! 😂😂😂) I’m very lucky because here in Ireland we have the most amazing library catalogue of books and I can request books from pretty much any public library in the country and have them delivered to my local branch for free.
      I do also buy a fair few books but my library reads far outweigh books I own.


      1. That’s amazing… I don’t even remember the last time I went to my local library, and I would love to use it but they rarely have English books (it’s Portugal after all). Maybe libraries in Lisbon and Porto do have a wider selection of books in foreign languages but not here.
        Oh well, there are always ebooks 👍😀
