am was a prolific reader. Until last year. I don't know why, I just got out of it. (Too many great blogs?!) I used to stick my nose into a book for hours at a time as a child. Then, as a mother of two, snatch just a few moments here and there to indulge, pure escapism. A good book is a wonderful thing, something to share, discuss with friends, swap, ponder. There's nothing better than hunkering down, a hot chocolate or a glass of something, preferably red by your side!
I follow the wonderful blog Circle of Pine Trees, written by Laura, whose writing I adore. She does a regular post called The Year In Books. I have loved seeing her's and others choices and often bought books based on recommendations - on my bookshelf gathering dust......hmmmm, moving on....
So this year I am going to join the fun! I started off with my book for January by reading The Au Pair by Janey Fraser. A nice easy read which brought me into 2015 at a slow leisurely pace! Good book to encourage me back to reading. I finished it!! So that's a start!
Moving on to February's book! I'm off skiing tomorrow so have chosen The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. I've heard great reviews so have high hope for this Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. I love that it has snow in the title! This will be enjoyed with hot chocolate and marshmallows by my side I'm sure!!
