Booking Ahead: December 2018

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.
December, already?!? Next thing you know it will be Christmas. With that in mind I’ve added at least one festive looking cover to my potential reading selection for this month. Here are a few books I hope to sample over the next few weeks…

New Books

Someone Like Me by M. R. Carey – I’ve read Carey’s previous novels and enjoyed them all, and I’ve seen some great, non-spoilerish reviews for this latest which have all made me quite excited to get started on the book.

The Lingering by SJI Holliday – Another book that I keep seeing everywhere at the moment. It sounds really creepy, set in an old asylum now used as a community dwelling, but I can’t wait to start it. Am intrigued about the bath bit, because I’ve seen that mentioned in quite a few reviews already.

The Christmas Lights by Karen Swan – It’s that time of year again folks! The arrival of December usually sees me reaching for the latest from Karen Swan.

Books from the Backlist

I’m not sure I’ll manage anything from the Backlist this month. I requested so many new books from the library and as usual they’ve all arrived at the same time. I have no idea how I’ll get through them all before the loans expire but I’m going to give it a good go.


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.

      Definitely a law of some kind – I’ll have books on order weeks/months in advance, and they’ll all have different release dates, yet you can guarantee there’ll be nothing at the library for ages and then before you know I have a pile of books almost as tall as me 😀
