Hi all! I’m back again with my December TRB. I haven’t picked too many books this month as I hoping to ease back into my writing and being the holiday season I might not have that much reading time. Also I might be getting books for Christmas or at the Boxing Day sales and will want to read them right away.
I haven chosen 5 books this month and I might drag over 2 from my November TRB – The Lies of Locke Lamora and Skin – as I really want to read them before the year is out
Now onto the books!
#1 His Dark Materials Trilogy ~ Philip Pullman
This month I’m taking part in the His Dark Materials Read-along hosted by Jen Campbell and Holly from Library at the Edge of the World. I am exciting because I haven’t read this series – I have only read half of the first book around the time the horrid movie adaptation came out. I love the concept of this world and I can’t wait to dive into it!
#2 Room ~ Emma Donoghue
I found this one on BookTube, I can’t remember who recommended it, but I just loved the concept of this one. It’s told from the perspective of a five-year-old named Jack. Jack and his Ma live in a locked room. Room is home to Jack, but for his Ma it’s the prison she’s been held in for 7 years. It sounds dark and creepy and the fact it’s told from a child’s point of view makes it more interesting. And I think it was short listed for the Man Booker so I’m exciting to get to this.
#3 Epitaph for Three Women ~ Jean Plaidy
I picked this one up from the library as a) historical fiction and b) about Joan of Arc. I’m fascinated by Joan of Arc and want to read more about her life. I haven’t heard about the other women mentioned in this story – Katherine de Valois and Eleanor of Gloucester. But it’s set just before the Wars of the Roses with the death of Henry V which is a favourite time period of mine. I think i should enjoy this one.
That’s all for my tiny TRB, comment down below and let me know what you’re planning to read this month.
Until next time, happy reading
