Booking Ahead is a feature 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 to another Booking Ahead.
Time for the monthly glance at my book pile/list to decide what I’m going to read next. I have a feeling I won’t be reading a massive number of books this month as I have a couple of huge reads on my list which I’m really looking forward to.
Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King – Have you seen this book yet? It’s definitely one that would catch your eye. Such a lovely cover, and I like the novelty of the inside covers being embossed with an animal too. The tiger or fox are probably the ones I like best.
Look at me, so engrossed with the cover, which we all know shouldn’t be the main concern.
And it isn’t, really, it’s just an added bonus.
The story sounds like something I’m really going to enjoy. I just hope I’ve not ended up over-hyped, because this has been known to happen before. We’ll see…
Books from the Backlist
Needful Things by Stephen King – Looks like I’m having a King-themed month of reading! I’d already started this book at the end of last month, and it’s LONG. Over 900 pages long. I think things in Castle Rock, Maine are about to become very interesting for all those visiting the new shop in town, Needful Things. There’s something for everything, at a price they can just about afford, or can they?
The High Lord by Trudi Canavan – This one appeared on last month’s list too, but hopefully I’ll definitely get around to reading it and finishing the Black Magician trilogy this month.
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.
