Day 14: Read at School
Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
I'm a big believer of getting kids to read classics at school. From memory, all the boys complained about reading Pride & Prejudice, while all the girls simultaneously fell in love with Mr Darcy. How could you not fall in love with a real man like that?
Day 15: Favourite colour cover
The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
I LOVE this cover! I'd been thinking about buying this book as it sounded like a great read, but when Waterstones brought out a special edition of it after it was named their book of the year, I had to get a copy. It's just stunning to look at.
Day 17: A funny read
Bleakly Hall by Elaine di Rollo
I found this book in a discount book shop and consider it to be one of the best discoveries of the year. It is odd, eccentric and a total romp! I loved the characters and found myself both shaking my head at how bonkers they were, but also maybe feeling a bit mad myself.
Day 18: A massive tome
The King's Curse by Philippa Gregory
My sister gave me this book for my birthday in September and I haven't got around to reading it yet as I was feeling a little intimidated as to how big it actually is. The last time I read a Philippa Gregory book, I couldn't put it down so I've been saving this beauty for my blissful Christmas break.
Day 19: Travelling home, reading this....
Over the Rainbow by Paul Pickering
This book reminds me of flying home from my last sunny beach holiday. I don't usually read on a plane (cue travel sickness immediately), but I couldn't help myself with this book- I had to read how it ended! It was simply a brilliant read and perfect for a lazy beach holiday.
