Is anyone else a little confused as to how Christmas is only a month away? How did that happen? I walked into work on Monday morning and the Christmas trees were glittering in the foyer! The silly season has begun!
I love Christmas – singing carols, wrapping and giving presents and eating delicious food is all part of the fun. I also believe that it’s the best time of year to give something back. Each year I love to find a charity Christmas tree and put some gifts underneath. This year, I have collected a lovely box of books but I am yet to decide which charity to give them too. Any ideas? Do you donate at Christmas time?
Speaking of presents, there is so much choice at this time of year! The publishers keep their best books for Christmas (for obvious reasons) but it means that there is an overwhelming amount of options for gifts! So… I am going to upload a post on Monday the 1st of December where you can ask for help in buying the perfect bookish gift! Hopefully I can help. There is nothing better than opening up a package of books on Christmas day!
In book related news, I achieved a milestone with my blog this week. My review of All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven received some wonderful feedback and even the author had some lovely things to say about it! It is a beautiful book and I am glad I was able to convey that through my review.
I have also read some excellent books – Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson was a highly enjoyable start to a fantasy new series! Even though it’s technically an adult series it would be a perfect book for younger readers looking for something new to read. It’s a little like a Marvel movie in book form – awesome! I also read an exciting manuscript to be published next year and a delightful romance book in a series I am really enjoying! Don’t forget, the next book club book is Wool by Hugh Howey that I will be reviewing next Monday as well! I hope to see you there!
Over to you – what have you been reading?
