Booking Ahead is an opportunity to 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.
My TBR pile remains massive, and I’ve just picked up another pile of books from the library, so here’s a small selection that may be keeping me busy throughout the coming month…
Bone China by Laura Purcell – I’ve enjoyed both of Laura Purcell’s previous novels so I’m really looking forward to another gothic tale, this time set in Cornwall.
Full Throttle by Joe Hill – A short story collection, one of which, Into the Tall Grass, has been adapted into a film. I don’t usually read short stories, but I enjoyed Joe Hill’s Strange Weather and The Fireman so thought I’d give this new collection a try.
The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg – That cover!! You shouldn’t choose a book for the cover, I know, but I saw a brand new copy on the shelf at the library and I couldn’t resist picking it up. It sounds like this might have a Westworld type theme? We’ll see…
Books from the Backlist
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson – I’m actually reading this one at the moment. I started it during Readers Imbibing Peril but didn’t manage to finish it before the event ended.
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.
