January is just made for books. Firesides, cups of tea, woolly socks; all perfect for settling down with a good read. It’s that time of year when everyone is brim full of new determination to do more of what they love. And who doesn’t love to curl up with a book? Sure, I know we get distracted by screens, or the conversation at the neighbouring cafe table (no? just me?) But. I do love it when I finally sink in and get lost in another world between the covers.
I love to share good reads with other people. I’d rather know what you’re reading, than what you thought of Strictly. And if I see someone with a book on the train I usually get busted for craning my neck to spot the title. If it has a beautiful cover, I’m in love, and have to share it on Instagram. So, I’m very happy to join Laura in sharing my reads in #theyearinbooks, and I hope you will too! My head is stuck firmly in We, the Drowned at the moment. It’s a fat read to finish by the end of the month, so I better put the kettle on and put down the screen.
