Is there anything better than sitting snug by the Christmas tree with a book? I don’t think so. I enjoyed reading a wide variety of books over the Christmas period, all different but all brilliant!
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
I loved the Midnight Library, it was just what I needed to read over the gloomy days of a lockdown Christmas. I’ve read Matt Haig before but this book really stood out to me. The Midnight Library is a celebration of choices and possibilities. It shows that we are all important, no matter how small we think we are.
The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman
Richard Osman’s The Thursday Murder Club was a Christmas gift alternative to my normal Xmas Agatha Christie read. I devoured this novel alongside plenty of Quality Streets. Set in a retirement village, a group of OAPs sleuths are thrown head first into real life murder. An enjoyable murder mystery that will delight any Agatha Christie fans (like me!).
The Girl Who Reads on the Metro by Christine Feret-Fleury
The Girl Who Reads on the Metro was a gift from my mum and very lovely read. An ode to book lovers, this delightful book will make you want to go to Paris and eat croissants overlooking the Seine.
Ghosts by Dolly Alderton
I love Dolly Alderton’s podcast so I had to buy her new fiction book. A great observation on modern dating, Ghosts isn’t your average rom-com.
The Girls and Daddy by Emma Cline
How have I only just discovered Emma Cline?! An incredible writer. I particularly loved The Girls which is loosely based on the Manson Cult in the 1960s. A brilliant portrayal of teenage friendship and the potential humans have for evil, The Girls has stayed with me ever since.
