Considering I only managed to finish 2 books, this post is really, really late.

39: Unseen Academicals Terry Pratchett

The only way I am ever going to like a book about football is make it Discworld football ... But this was about more than just football, and absolutely brilliant with it.

40: Sunset Oasis
Bahaa Taher

I am not sure how I feel about this. I found the multiple 'voices' in the book to be rather disjointed, and never really warmed to any of them.

1: A Christmas Carol Charles Dickens
(librivox audio book)

It was ages since I had read this, so I treated myself to a listen over Christmas and New Year. This remains one of my favourite Dickens' novels - and not just because it is short!

2: The Little Endless Storybook Jill Thompson

This may be short, but it has words, and a plot, so it counts! A pleasant way to pace the time while waiting for a face mask to set.

3: Tell it to the Skies Erica James

This was really well written, and although the story is superficially happy, there is a very sad backstory to it.

4: The Other Queen Philippa Gregory

I loved the way this was told through 3 perspectives, and I thought the way Bess of Hardwick was written - I must go and read more on her.

5: Remembrance Day Leah Fleming

Mum picked this up on offer in Tesco, and it was brilliant. Fascinating story of love and class and how the world changed. Definitely to be recommended (mostly WWI [ profile] dozydormouse , so don't know if it is quite for you)

6: The Whaleboat House Mark Mills

This is a very good mystery, one of those books where you desperately want to know what happens, but that you also don't want to stop. There was a bit of jumping about in time, that was confusing until I got used to it. I must read Mark Mills' other books.
