Attention all UK book bloggers: Tesco have a mega book sale on at the moment, with books starting from 25p! Surprisingly enough, there are actually some decent titles to be had, I picked up these two for £1 altogether.
Brideshead Revisited - Evelyn Waugh
"Charles Ryder, a lonely student at Oxford, is captivated by the outrageous and decadent Sebastian Flyte. Invited to Brideshead, Sebastian's magnificent family home, Charles welcomes the attentions of its eccentric, artistic inhabitants the Marchmains, becoming infatuated with them and the life of privilege they inhabit- in particular, with Sebastian's remote sister, Julia.
But, as duty and desire, faith and happiness come into conflict, and the Marchmains struggle to find their place in a changing world, Charles eventually comes to recognise his spiritual and social distance from them."
The King's Mistress - Gillian Bagwell
"As a nobleman's daughter, Jane Lane longs for a life outside the privileged walls of her family home. Her quiet world is shattered when Royalists arrive one night, pleading for help.
They have been hiding the King, but Cromwell's forces are close behind them, baying for Charles II's blood- and anyone who helps him.
Putting herself in mortal danger, Jane must help the King escape by disguising him as her manservant. With the shadow of the gallows following their every step, Jane finds herself falling for the gallant young Charles. But will she surrender to a passion that could change her life - and the course of history?"
