One of the things that I love the most about the holidays is that I can read all day without feeling guilty. Maybe I start in bed: I usually wake up before my boyfriend so I have two hours for me and I spend one of those hours reading. Then I get out of bed and the rest of the morning goes by with things to do around the house, buy some food, ecc. But the afternoon is all for reading! Of course I don't spend all my holidays like this: after a day I start to feel anxious if I don't knit something, I'm also working on a new thing I want to have as hobby as a way to calm down the anxiety, but this is another story for another time. So, today I wanted to do a super simple post with my reading list for the holidays: Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi. I'm almost done with it and I'm liking it so far. Essex County by Jeff Lemire. I read half of it on one evening and I finished it the day after and, oh my, it was so good. The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black. I had this book on my reading list for quite a while and I think that Christmas holidays call for this kind of books. The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman. The third and last part of the His Dark Materials trilogy. I'm reading it as an audiobook while I'm working and I can't wait to finish this amazing series. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. C. and I read about this book long time ago, we found it in a charity shop when we were in London two years ago, he finally finished it the other day (C. has this habit to read many books at a time and sometimes it can take him quite a while to finish a book), so I can put it as the first reading for the new year, yehhh! Storie, Internazionale. It's a weekly Italian magazine that usually collects various newspaper articles from around the world, but in the last issue of the year and the August one they publish a collection of stories and this week it's all about Japanese writers. What are you reading right now? Have you received any good book as Christmas present?
