Books In


Taking part in Nonfiction November encouraged me to seek out some non-fiction books to spend my birthday vouchers on this month. You may have noticed I’ve read some of these already and some of the reviews are already up on the blog. Which makes me sound all organised and efficient but I am anything but at the moment! It’s good to sometimes buy a book and just read it straight away though.

I’m looking forward to the third Invisible Library book and whilst I know Ben Fogle’s Labrador isn’t meant to be the best book in the world, I think it will still be interesting to read now we have one.

    I loved The Shepherd's Life — I'd like to read A Yorkshire Shepherdess as well.

    Wonderful additions to your shelves. There are some that are on my own list. I am not familiar with the ones that you got for review, but upon looking them up I see that a couple of them are 2-3 books in the series. You Will Not Have My Hate looks intriguing.

    I've had One Summer to read for AGES. I really want to read it but, and I know this is a stupid reason not to read it, it's way too heavy to put in my bag and carry around! I can't wait to read your review so I can feel inspired πŸ˜›

      Hah it is quite chunky, I can only imagine what the hardback is like! I will probably try and read it over the holidays so I don't have to carry it around.
