Booking Ahead: March 2017

Booking Ahead is a 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.

Welcome back to Booking Ahead. Time to choose some more potential reads for the month, both from the TBR pile and from the new books that caught my eye recently. No matter how much I want to read my ‘already-have’ books I still can’t seem to keep away from the new ones. I’m still doing Beat the Backlist, so once more I’ll be dividing this post into two sections…

New Books

Hold Back the Stars by Katie Khan – This book is making a reappearance as I didn’t manage to fit it in during last month’s reading. It features people trying to survive in space, with 90 minutes of air left.

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman – This might actually be my first book by this author. I know I’ve seen the movie version of Stardust but I’m pretty sure I’ve never read any of his books. I’m looking forward to giving this a try as I’ve been watching Vikings recently, so I’m sticking with a theme here.

Books from the Backlist

Tennison by Lynda La Plante – I picked this one up in the library ages ago, and I keep seeing features about the upcoming tv series, so I have a feeling it will end up on a few request lists once the show starts; I want to give it a try before it has to go back. I don’t read much in the way of crime or police stories, even though I quite enjoy watching such shows on tv, so am looking forward to something different in my reading.

What are you hoping to read this month?
Have you read of my picks, and if so what did you think?
See you again next month for another Booking Ahead.
