Series Saturday – September

Hello bookworms!

I have decided to start a new monthly feature on my blog called Series Saturday. I was amazed at how many book series I had on my shelf and thought it was about time I shared them with you all. Each month I will choose one series to feature. This may be a series I have read and loved or am yet to read. This month I have decided to share a duology that I have recently read and adored….

I was introduced to this series by my lovely friend Novel Natters. After hearing how much she loved it I decided to give it a go and found the first one on audio. I loved it so much that I then went straight on to the sequel which I now have a signed copy of, thanks to my lovey friend mentioned above. For those not familiar with this duology here is the synopsis of The Miseducation of Evie Epworth…

July, 1962
Sixteen year-old Evie Epworth stands on the cusp of womanhood. But what kind of a woman will she become?
The fastest milk bottle-delivery girl in East Yorkshire, Evie is tall as a tree and hot as the desert sand. She dreams of an independent life lived under the bright lights of London (or Leeds). The two posters of Adam Faith on her bedroom wall (‘brooding Adam’ and ‘sophisticated Adam’) offer wise counsel about a future beyond rural East Yorkshire. Her role models are Charlotte Bronte, Shirley MacLaine and the Queen. But, before she can decide on a career, she must first deal with the malign presence of her future step-mother, the manipulative and money-grubbing Christine.
If Evie can rescue her bereaved father, Arthur, from Christine’s pink and over-perfumed clutches, and save the farmhouse from being sold off then maybe she can move on with her own life and finally work out exactly who it is she is meant to be.  
Moving, inventive and richly comic, The Miseducation of Evie Epworth is the most joyful debut novel of the year and the best thing to have come out of Yorkshire since Wensleydale cheese.   

What do I love about this series?

Theses books are the perfect throwbacks to the 60’s and 70’s, with nods to the different pop culture and current events, the flamboyant styles and scrumptious food are in abundance. Full of hilarious moments and a main character you can’t help but adore Evie Epworth is guaranteed to steal your heart, these books made me smile and they made me cry. In the first book we get a real sense of community and meet many lovable characters. We laugh at Evie and Mrs Scott-Pym’s scheming and shed a tear or two at her mother’s story. In the second book we follow Evie as she finds her way in the adult world and embarks on a new career in London. With the help of a few familiar and new faces we watch Evie embrace the awesome, fierce woman she is. I really hope this becomes a trilogy as Evie has stolen a piece of my heart and I need to know what is next for her.

Have you this series? Which was your favourite?
