In December, I read:
- Expectation by Anna Hope
- The Confession by Jessie Burton
- The Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie (Hercule Poirot #2)
- A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
- The End of Her by Shari Lapena
- Daemon Voices by Philip Pullman
I really enjoyed Expectation – a story that follows three women as they grow up from their student days into their 40s. I could really relate to the characters as they were the same age as me and it gave me lots to think about.
A Little Life is certainly not a little book. Nor is it a particularly cheerful one and I did struggle with it for that reason. It was really well-written, and I am glad I finished it, but I’m not sure I would read it again! Warning – some of the themes in this book are very dark.
I would recommend Daemon Voices to any writers out there – it is a very inspiring examination of art, literature, religion and Pullman’s own work. I didn’t always agree with him, but I thought it was a very thought-provoking and enjoyable read.
In January 2021, I am planning to read:
- The Holiday by T M Logan
- The Catch by T M Logan
- One by One by Ruth Ware
- Shed No Tears by Caz Frear
- Stone Cold Heart by Caz Frear
What are your reading plans for 2021?
