If you missed my last week of #SeasonsReadings, you can catch up here:
Day 20: A book set in your current city
Sunshine on Scotland Street by Alexander McCall Smith
Ask any Edinburgh local to name a book set in Edinburgh and they will all probably all answer with a 44 Scotland Street title. Alexander McCall Smith is a legend in the city, and his novels sum up the Edinburgh way of life perfectly.
Day 21: To be read
The Italian Chapel by Philip Paris
I picked this book up at the Edinburgh International Book Festival and its in my pile of books to read. The story follows the lives of the Italian POW's that were sent to Orkney in World War II and while there they built a beautiful chapel which is still standing today.
I'd love to visit the Chapel in person once I've read the history behind it.
Day 23: the best present
Poirot & Me by David Suchet
Last year, my boyfriend gave me the greatest gift ever for Christmas. As you might have guessed already, I am a huge Agatha Christie fan, and David Suchet played her Belgian Detective Hercule Poirot perfectly in the TV series. So my brilliant boyfriend gifted me with a signed copy of his book 'Poirot & Me'- BEST PRESENT EVER!
Day 24: For Father Christmas
Tequila Mockingbird by Tim Federle
I think the most appropriate gift for Santa nowadays is an alcoholic drink. After a busy night delivering millions of presents to demanding children across the world, I think the the big guy in the red suit could use a drink- and what better drink then a literary themed cocktail. Genius.
Day 25: Under the tree
Jamie's Comfort Food by Jamie Oliver
My twin was so stressed in the lead up to Christmas worrying that no one would get her Jamie's new cook book for Christmas. She dropped multiple hints in the lead up to Christmas, but she needn't have bothered- I'd already bought it and wrapped it long before she'd had to ask. Now its my turn to drop hints for her to make me some yummy dinners from the book.
