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 the first Booking Ahead of 2018.
I’ve signed up for Beat the Backlist again this year so I’m sticking with the format I used last year in my Booking Ahead posts. It’ll be a mix of the new and the old when I’m picking out my potential reads for the coming month.
The Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughan – This is one of the books I’ve seen on quite a few lists lately so I thought I’d give it a try. Here’s the synopsis, I think it’s going to be a good read.
A high-profile marriage thrust into the spotlight. A wife, determined to keep her family safe, must face a prosecutor who believes justice has been a long time coming. A scandal that will rock Westminster. And the women caught at the heart of it.
Anatomy of a Scandal centres on a high-profile marriage that begins to unravel when the husband is accused of a terrible crime. Sophie is sure her husband, James, is innocent and desperately hopes to protect her precious family from the lies which might ruin them. Kate is the barrister who will prosecute the case – she is equally certain that James is guilty and determined he will pay for his crimes.
Books from the Backlist
A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab – Back to the adventures of Kell and Lila. It’s been too long since I finished A Darker Shade of Magic, so I’m glad to get back into this magical world.
It by Stephen King – I watched the movie recently and inevitably it’s left me wanting to re-read the book. It’s so long and I have such a massive TBR pile that I don’t know whether I’ll actually end up reading it this month, but I want to mention it, just in case…
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.
