Welcome to This Week in Books, where we share what we’ve been up to in bookland this week and look ahead to next.
Happy Wednesday, Blog Friends!
I missed last week for who knows what reason…life? Y’know. But at least that means I have a good amount of books to share with you today. Hurrah!
As is tradition, the moment Halloween is over I start feeling festive, and I’ve started to pick up some trashy festive romance books. I use the word trashy in the best possible way! I love trash!
Here’s what I’ve been up to…
NOW: I’ve just started Christmas by Accident by Camron Wright. Literally, just started, so nothing to report yet.
I also started listening to the audio version of Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire. I love the book, but it’s not a quick read, so I thought I’d give the audio a go. Enjoying it so far!
THEN: Last night I finished Starry Night by Debbie Macomber. According to Goodreads I’ve now read this book 3 times…really? I thought I’d only read it once, LOL. That does explain the lovely familiar feeling I got whilst reading it. It’s a quick, cute, romance set in Seattle and Alaska in which a journalist goes looking for a reclusive best-selling author.
Before that, I finished The Bookshop Book by Jen Campbell. I loved reading about all the amazing indie bookshops throughout Britain and beyond. I now have a list of about a million places I need to visit though.
NEXT: I might give How to Fracture a Fairy Tale by Jane Yolen a go, although I have some reservations about it. I also need to read our book group book for work which is The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan. Tough Job, innit! 😉

I love reading fluffy, festive books at this time of year! I love reading longer fantasy and dark historical fiction in the winter, but it’s always nice to have something a bit lighter on the go, too.
Definitely. They’re perfect for a cosy night in! 🙂
I can imagine that Interview with the Vampire on audio would be great!

Yeah it’s weirdly nice to fall asleep to. LOL.
The Keeper of Lost Things is such a gorgeous book, I adored it so I hope you enjoy it as much when you read. I like the sound of Starry Nights and have that on my TBR so I might bump that up the stacks in the coming weeks. Happy reading 🙂

Thanks Hayley. Looking forward to starting it this weekend. 🙂
Starry Nights does sound good! 🙂 I’m pleased you enjoyed it for the third time!
haha thanks. It’s quite worrying that I only remembered reading it the once. Must be getting old. LOL!
