Hana | 7 comments Thank you Ange for inviting me to the group. This is going to be a very nice push as I was not planning to read any Daphne de Maurier’s books any time soon. I’m looking forward to reading all the books with you and I love how you made a list of the books. This will allow me to get the books beforehand. But unfortunately I might not read the first but book with you because I just ordered it and it won’t be delivered in less than two weeks time :(

Raluca Ferrari Hello there! I am so curious about this new project. I only read Rebecca and My Cousin Rachel. I have just downloaded My loving Spirit. I am starting this week, on Wednesday (I know I am late).


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

I’ve also only read Rebecca (several times- I love it!) and My Cousin Rachel, so I’m excited to read all her other works!

I've recently read Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier , My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier and last week, I finished Jamaica Inn by Daphne du Maurier , so I was planning to read more soon.

message 10: by Katie (new)

Katie Lumsden (katie-booksandthings) What a great project Ange! I will probably join in here and there rather than every month, but I'm excited to read more Daphne Du Maurier :)


message 11: by Jessica (new)

Jessica (jessamaral) Thanks for the invite! I've only read Rebecca, can't wait to read her other books! :)

Thank you for starting this group. It will give me a chance to re-visit some old favourites and read others that have been on my TBR for a bit.


message 14: by Leigh (new)

Leigh I'm looking forward to reading along with other Du Maurier fans!


message 15: by A.G. Lake (new)

A.G. Lake I am exactly reading Loving Spirit so I am in!


message 16: by Dianna (new)

Dianna Just requested July's book through ILL since my library doesn't have it. Thanks for being all organized with a schedule and everything.


message 17: by Kinga (new)

Kinga | 1 comments My copy of The Loving Spirit came much later than I anticipated so I'll be reading it in July right before I'll never be young again.


message 18: by Quirkyreader (new)

Quirkyreader | 17 comments A book that everyone might be interested in reading is Neverland: J.M. Barrie, the Du Mauriers, and the Dark Side of Peter Pan Neverland J.M. Barrie, the Du Mauriers, and the Dark Side of Peter Pan by Piers Dudgeon

It shows how J.M. Barrie was around influencing the Du Maurier family. And Barrie spent plenty of time with Daphne and her parents.

Hi Alexandra,

Happy to hear that you will be joining us in October for Rebecca. We each read it at our own pace over the month and then discuss it on a chat I create here on this group.

Ange :)

message 37: by Karen (new)

Karen Ange said on her YouTube channel that she has postponed this read-along for a while.Not sure when she's starting it back up


message 38: by Quirkyreader (new)

Quirkyreader | 17 comments I’m sad to hear that it is postponed. But on the plus side it will provide a catch up time, give more people a chance to join in, but most of all give us a chance to gather all the tittles.

Quirkyreader | 17 comments Today I actually found a copy of what was supposed to be the October 2019 read Castle Dor by Arthur Quiller-Couch Castle Dor
