Because the thought of compiling of a gift guide brings on feelings of panic, I’ve decided to create a book list of recommended reading that could potentially help you over the festive season when free time is more plentiful.
These are not all new books, but rather a selection of some of the books I have read and liked this year. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt was by far my favourite. I wish I had held out more when I was reading, I devoured it in single weekend. Find the links below:
The Goldfinch – Donna Tartt | Vampires in the Lemon Grove and Other Stories – Karen Russell | Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage – Haruki Murakami | Not That Kind of Girl – Lena Dunham | The Children Act – Ian McEwan | The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood | Border Crossing – Pat Barker | Carthage – Joyce Carol Oates
