Booking Ahead: November 2016

Booking Ahead is a new feature here on Pages and Tea where I glance through my never-ending TBR list/pile and select a few potential reads for the coming month. If I’m not reading books I love talking about books I’d like to read, so this post is a perfect excuse to do just that.

The beginning of a new month can only mean one thing… It’s time to talk about the books I hope to read during November. I really need to put more time into reading for these last couple of months of the year if I’m ever going to meet my (tiny) Goodreads target. Here’s hoping some of these choices are totally addictive reads.

The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking – The longer, darker nights of Autumn and Winter are upon us, so I thought I’d check out this lovely looking little book in the hope of finding ways to make the most of this time of year. Also, I don’t tend to read non-fiction so it makes a change for me.

Golden Hill by Francis Spufford – This book came with such a glowing recommendation from the bookseller that I’m really looking forward to giving it a try.  Glancing at the back of the book, it doesn’t give much away, which just adds to the mystery and intrigue.

The Trees by Ali Shaw – The cover caught my eye through the book shop window and the rest is history. The tale sounds good, featuring a world that becomes engulfed by a forest overnight.

The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead

And, making a return appearance on Booking Ahead…

Precious and Grace by Alexander McCall Smith – My reading was so slow last month I never managed to get started on this one.

What are you planning to read this month? Have you read any of my choices and if so which would you recommend?
