My Christmas To-Be-Read list

I’ve shared my favourite Christmas reads, but today I want to share the books that are on my Christmas To-Be-Read List. Basically, the books I want to read before the end of 2020.

Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh

A classic I’ve never read but intended too. I’ve finally gotten around to getting a copy of the book so I can enjoy it, before I watch the famous ITV series.

Insatiable by Daisy Buchanan

I’ve read Daisy Buchanan’s previous non-fiction book How to Be a Grown Upso I was excited to hear that she was writing a fiction novel. One of my Avon authors read an early copy and raved about it, so much so I’ve had my eyes on getting my hands on it for a while. I was lucky enough to receive a copy via NetGalley and have already started to read it. But I’ll put most of my focus on it over December.

The Summer Job by Lizzy Dent

A summer debut for 2021. There’s a been a lot of buzz online for this novel, and the publicist was lovely enough to send me a proof copy to read. It’s set in Scotland and follows a woman who ‘steals’ the life of her friend as an award winning sommelier, only to realise it’s not as simple as it sounds. And a romance with – I think a Chef? – ensues!

Boy Parts by Eliza Clark

My friend recommended this book to me ages ago, and I’ve had it on my wish list for an age. When it was finally dropped to just 99p on Kindle I jumped at the chance to download it. I’m saving it for my Christmas break.

84 Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff

And finally, another book I’ve been meaning to read for ages. I love books about books, and this is effectively that. Back when you could mail-order books from booksellers, Helene Hanff did just that from America. She writes to Foyles, in London, and developed a book-loving relationship with a bookseller that lasted several years. This book documents their letters back and forth to each other.

I also plan on reading my Christmas favouritesThe Night Before Christmas and A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.

What books are you planning on reading this Christmas? Let me know in the comments below.
