Reading is my absolute favourite hobby.
Getting so immeresed into a story, it’s characters and plot, to the extent that when you put it down (it you can!!) then you are just itching for the next time you can pick it up, is truly something wonderful.
& there are some brilliant books out there.
I feel like I don’t make enough time for reading and I want to change this in 2019 so, I thought I would set myself a little reading challenge.
It’s not going to be too structured as I find a rigid scheme often takes the fun out of the reading, I don’t want to read a particular book list or anything like that, I will just be keeping it simple.
2 books a month.
(Obviosuly two is my minimum, often during months with school holidays I will get through more.)
So, for January I currently have my two books on the go.
I wouldn’t normally read two at once but this is just how it has gone this time as I had already started one when I discovered one I couldn’t resist starting too. Plus, I’ve read Goodnight Mr Tom before and watched the film loads of times, so it’s much easier to follow as I know the story well.
Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian
Its the story of young Willie Beech, evacuated to the country as Britain stands on the brink of the Second World War. A sad, deprived child, he slowly begins to flourish under the care of old Tom Oakley – but his new-found happiness is shattered by a summons from his mother back in London. As time goes by Tom begins to worry when Willie doesn’t answer his letters, so he goes to London to find him, and and there he makes a terrible discovery.re .
The face behind the mask: The Annie Graham series (Book 6) by Helen Phifer.
‘The greatest show on earth may pose the greatest danger…
1950: Tufty the clown is a circus favourite, drawing fans from miles around. But behind the painted white face, the upturned red lips and bouncy wig, there lurks something far more sinister…
Present Day: When Walter discovers an old clown suit, he finds himself inexplicably drawn to it. Putting on the suit feels electric, but that’s when the voices in his head get louder, and suddenly, he finds himself acting in ways he never would have imagined.‘
Let me know what books you are looking forward to reading this year!!
** Happy Reading **
Until next time,
