Christmas Reading List 2020 Update

Hello!

I thought a little update was required. I have now read 3 of my Christmas books on my list and I have ordered more which was very naughty of me but I just couldn’t help myself.

So here are the books I have read and I will be honest I absolutely loved and they have really helped me get into the festive spirit.

A Wedding in December by Sarah Morgan

A Perfect Cornish Christmas by Phillipa Ashley

A Midwinter Promise by Lulu Taylor

Here are the books I have left to read and I know I will never get through them all but I live in hope and my Goodreads challenge is falling behind so I am hoping my Christmas reading will help me catch up.

So there is my current Christmas Reading list. Please drop me a comment if you want to chat about any of these books.

Happy Reading

Happy Sunday!

I hope everyone has had a good weekend so far. I must admit I am thoroughly enjoying my Christmas reading list so far and it is a welcome relief from the ancient death rituals I am currently studying for my course. I will be honest it isn’t the cheeriest of subjects to be studying on the run up to Christmas.

Anyway, here is what I have been up to in the world of blogging…

Christmas Reading List 2020

Hello!

So today we ordered our Christmas tree, we usually have a real Christmas tree but this year due to my husband and myself both actually been allergic to Christmas trees we have gone for an artificial one. I can’t wait for it to arrive!

We also watched the Christmas light switch on of our town online and drank mulled wine today, so I thought it is high time I got my Christmas reading list sorted. I usually get my Christmas books from Waterstones when we go to our annual Birmingham German Market trip but that is cancelled this year so I have had to do my Christmas book shopping online which is really not the same.

Anyway, in no particular order here is my list.

Ten books in total and knowing me I might add more. I know I won’t get around to reading them all but I do like having a variety to choose from. I’m particularly looking forward to my new version of The Nutcracker as I read a new version every year. I have had a sneaky look at the illustrations already and it does look very pretty.

Please let me know your thoughts if you have read any of these Christmas books and please feel free to recommend some more Christmas reads to me. The more the merrier!

Happy Reading!

The Willoughby Book Club #2

Hello!

So we have had our first day of lockdown, I will be honest it hasn’t been much different to my normal days. Studying with a little bit of online teaching thrown into the mix. However, I did have something which doesn’t happen everyday and that was my wonderful Willoughby Book Club delivery! I have been so excited about this delivery! I am so grateful to my amazing friend who got it for my birthday as it really is something to look forward to each month.

Here is my lovely book!

I’ve never come across this author or even seen this book before so I am rather excited to read it.

I think the thing I love most about getting a surprise book each month is the fact that I am getting to discover lots of new books and authors. It makes me leave my comfort zone and I think that is definitely a good thing.

Please drop me a message if you have read this book as I would love to hear your thoughts.

Happy Reading!

The Willoughby Book Club

I have some exciting news!

My friend bought me a three month subscription to The Willoughby Book Club. I have always wanted to be part of a book subscription service and now I am. I can’t wait to get my next box with a beautifully wrapped book inside. It will be the perfect present at the beginning of the month.

I have had my first book box and I must admit I was jumping around with glee. It arrived way before my birthday so my husband hid it from me as I was so desperate to open the box and see what my new book was.

I will keep you all posted on my future book box arrivals!

Please let me know if you have a favourite book box subscription or if you are a fellow member of The Willoughby Book Club.

Happy Reading
