Better late than never – right??
I thought I would pop by to tell you what I read in November – October seemed to be a bit of a lull in reading and I didn’t really read anything at all. November got me back on track though, so here we go;
First up was the gorgeous The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking. This was delightful – beautifully presented with some wonderful ideas to put into practice to make your like a little more hygge. I can’t wait for Christmas, as I think it will be easier to be a little more hygge then than at any other time of the year. I am looking forward to hunkering down with some good books, films, food and (hopefully) no internet for a while. Bliss.
Next I dipped into Accused: British Witches Throughout History by Willow Winsham which was fairly interesting. I did find the style a little disjointed and confusing at times, but a lot of the cases discussed were really absorbing. I knew very little about any of them, and I was so interested to see such recent cases – going right up to the 1940s. Well worth a dip into if witches are your thing.
After that, I fancied a little lighthearted murder! So I picked up the first in a series, Murder at the Brightwell by Ashley Weaver. I enjoyed this one a lot – it is a lighthearted murder mystery set in the 1930s. It was very fluffy and there were lots of small descriptions of dresses (which I found slightly annoying after a while) and some fun characters. I would recommend it for light escapism, and I would certainly read the next in the series if I came across it on my travels.
December might see me reading Christmassy things – including my annual rereads of A Christmas Carol by Dickens and Letters from Father Christmas by J.R.R. Tolkien. I am hoping that I can fit in some more wintery feel good reads too – what they will be, only time will tell!
