I can’t believe another month is almost at an end and now it’s almost 2022! It still feels like it should be 2019 but here we are.
This month I read four books by Scottish authors, I didn’t aim to have the same number as November but four seems like a good amount. Four books would usually allow for quite a selection of genres and themes but I really wanted to read Christmassy/festive reads. However, after three of these books, plus my other reads for the month which were very festively themed, I felt a bit Christmassed out. So one of my reads wasn’t a Christmas read, it was set in Russia and featured snow so I’m counting that as being wintery. I worried that I’d broken the rules then remembered that this was a challenge that I’d set for myself and that the only rule was that the books should be by Scottish authors.
In this video I round up my December Scottish Reads which include:
The Christmas Bookshop by Jenny Colgan
Christmas at Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan
Miss Blaine’s Prefect and the Golden Samovar by Olga Wojtas
Snow Kissed Proposals – The Christmas Runaway by Jenni Fletcher
This month I learned that I really shouldn’t focus on reading just one genre of book for an entire month because that got old really quickly. Next month I aim to read more of a variety of Scottish reads- two of my Bookclub books are Scottish Reads and are very different (one is a reread so will be nice to see how I get on with it second time around).
If you have any recommendations for Scottish Reads, I’d love if you shared them!
