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.
Welcome to another edition of Booking Ahead, a chance to showcase a few of the books that are catching my eye at the moment. I have a feeling this month it’s going to be another month of bookish musings rather than definite reading plans, so, on to the books…
The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – Described as ‘a charming tale of love and betrayal, and the struggle between conformity and passion, set in a world where scandal is a razor-sharp weapon’, I like the sound of this tale of magic amongst Loisail’s most notable socialites. It sounds like a romance with added magic.
The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn – This is the second book in the Bridgertons series, and has mostly caught my eye because of the arrival of the latest tv series which I’ll probably end up watching at some point. I never got around to reading the first book, but I think this story features different main characters so I’m hoping that won’t matter too much.
The Lamplighters by Emma Stonex – Centres around a group of lighthouse keepers who went missing without any explanation. It sounds so mysterious, moving between the last weeks at the lighthouse and, two decades later, the people left behind, not knowing what happened to their loved ones.
The Kingdoms by Natasha Pulley – I’ve read a few of Natasha Pulley’s books in the past and always enjoyed them. This one follows Joe, a man with amnesia who, after finding a century-old postcard signed by someone known only as ‘M’, decides he must find this person, in the hope that he will also find out more about himself.
So, there are a few of the books that may feature in my reading this month. There’s also the chance that something completely unexpected will catch my eye…
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.
