I was delighted to get these books for Christmas:
The Midnight Line by Lee Child. I’ve never read any books by Lee Child, so I’m looking forward to reading it. Philip Pullman is quoted on the back cover – ‘I always seize the latest Lee Child with pleasure.‘ It’s no. 22 in his Jack Reacher thriller series. I wonder if this will set me off reading another series?
Codeword Puzzle Book: 300 Brain Teasing Codeword Puzzles. I’m a Codeword addict -they’re also known as Alphapuzzles – and I like to do at least two a day, so this book is ideal for me.
Night of the Lightbringer by Peter Tremayne – a signed copy of his latest Sister Fidelma mysteries! Another series to tempt me as this is the 28th medieval murder mystery, featuring Sister Fidelma, a Celtic nun and also an advocate of the ancient Irish law system. It’s set in Ireland in AD 671 on the eve of the pagan feast of Samhain.
Mythos: The Greek Myths Retold by Stephen Fry I’ve already written a First Chapter, First Paragraph post about this book. These are stories about gods, monsters and heroes – stories about Zeus, Apollo, Poseidon and Adonis and Aphrodite, for example.
