Mary Stewart Reading Week Wrap-up


Well, friends, we’ve come to the end of Mary Stewart Reading Week. I hope you’ve all enjoyed your experiences this week reading her work and if you haven’t, I hope that you would be willing to try her again. I think we’ve seen that, like most authors, Lady Stewart wrote some outstanding suspense novels and some not so stellar, yet still enjoyable, novels. I liked both of the books I read this week and I even found my favorite of her books in Nine Coaches Waiting.

I’ve loved reading your thoughts and I truly thank you all for participating, posting and commenting during this celebration. The event was far more successful than I dreamed it would be and I was pleasantly surprised to meet new-to-me bloggers who joined the reading week when they saw it mentioned on other blogs.

I will keep an index of the reviews posted this week up at the top of the blog under ‘MSRW Posts’. If you didn’t have a chance to read all of the posts yet you can always visit at a later time to see what you missed.

If you entered the giveaway, keep on the lookout to see if you won – I’ll announce the winner in a few days.

Again, thank you so much for participating! Keep reading Mary Stewart – let’s keep her work alive!

  1. I’ve so enjoyed myself reading all the posts — I’m particularly happy that I still have a handful of her books to read, and some much better ideas now about which ones I want to tackle first. I also now want to re-read quite a few! Thank you for organizing this — a great week!


  2. Thank you for this week, Anbolyn! I regret not being able to take part as much as I had planned, but I’m going to try to at least get round to reading some more posts.


  3. It was a great week. I really enjoyed it, loved reading all the posts. I’m looking forward to read Mary Stewart books, I think I will love them. So far I have the Ivy Tree, and Airs Above the Ground and a long waiting list.


  4. Thanks for taking the trouble to do this Anbolyn. I had hoped to get The Hollow Hills finished in time too but didn’t quite make it. It’s great to see that Mary Stewart is still being appreciated.
