I love this time of year! Cold crisp mornings, long rides on my horse followed by cosy evenings in by the fire with a good book! And I had the most exciting packages arrive this week!
I went a bit overboard on the books this week, and spent a lot of Christmas money. However, I am sure it is money well spent, as I cannot wait to get stuck in to these books, hopefully my reading slump is soon to be over!
Cress by Marissa Meyer
We Were Liars by E Lockhart
The Blue Book By A.L. Kennedy
Brick Lane by Monica Ali
London Fields by Martin Amis
The Electric Michelangelo by Sarah Hall
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
The Book of Life (All Souls Trilogy 3) by Deborah Harkness. I absolutely loved the first two in this series, but I was trying to wait for this to come out in paperback. However, I reached a stage of such desperation, I thought I would use my Christmas money!
Girl Defective by Simone Howell. I read the first three chapters on Pulseit as an extended excerpt, and I loved it so much I new I would have to buy it!
Dreams of Gods and Monsters (Daughter of Smoke and Bone Trilogy) by Laini Taylor
Broken by Dean Murray
And a preorder arrived today…Fake (The Scarab Beetle Series) by C.L. Stone on my Kindle
I am so excited to read this, sleep might be an optional tonight!
I also ordered a new creative writing book called Back to Creative Writing School by Bridget Whelan.
