I am looking forward to a glorious two whole weeks off over Christmas this year, the first half near London with my in-laws and the second half with my family in Yorkshire. One of the things I’ve been enjoying recently is the building of, and the anticipation of, my Christmas reading list. I fully intend on spending as many hours as I can get away with cuddled up with my books!
Here is what I’m taking with me:
1. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
A current sensation. I loved The Secret History, am currently reading The Little Friend and so it seemed rude not to take this with me for Christmas.
I was going to wait for this to come out in paperback, but I cracked!
I saw this in Covent Garden Waterstone’s this afternoon whilst browsing on my lunch break and was intrigued. I haven’t heard much about it, but on returning to my desk, I googled it and much praise appeared…I’m even more intrigued! (Here is one of the articles I read)
Continuing my recent trip down memory lane, I’m taking a children’s series with me. Somehow, I missed Emily of New Moon whilst I was growing up, but I’m very excited to get acquainted with her soon.
What are you reading this Christmas?
