How can it be December already? Where did the year I started as a M.A student and finished as a PhD candidate go? How can it be possible? Well, it may be true that time goes faster as you grow older, because although I have achieved more than I could think of this year, it really seems like it was yesterday when I published the first review of 2014! For the last month of 2014 I have great plans, some of them already accomplished.
I wanted to read The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell only if and when I had free time to spend as many hours reading as I wanted. I managed it during the first week of December. Needless to say, it was awesome. I would wake up and know that anything and everything I had to do was read a good book. Pure joy!
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins had been sitting on my TBR pile for too long. I was one of the lucky people to get a physical review copy last August, and everyone on Twitter insisted so much on how addictive this book was, that I knew I had to wait. It took me 3 sittings last weekend to read it.
Dying for Christmas by Tammy Cohen seems the perfect novel to read before Christmas. I know most people prefer a cozy, moral tale, but how can I give up my favourite literary genre on my favourite time of the year? Not possible, I tell you.
This year I had the pleasure to discover Liane Moriarty’s Little Lies and it was so good that I requested the publishers a review copy of her first novel, The Husband’s Secret. I have been saving it for a special time, because I loved Little Lies so much that I don’t think I can look at my TBR pile and not see a Moriarty there. It means comfort reading, it means a great novel! But, wouldn’t I be happier if I just read it? I have long thought this will be my last book of 2014.
How are you thinking of spending December? Book-wise and not! The Christmas enthusiast in me would love to hear your plans because only two weeks til Christmas Eve!
