Year in Books

Hello......... Over the next few days I'm going to be doing some 2014 review posts. First up is The year in books, where I joined in with Laura over at Circle of Pines to read a book each month of the year. 

So there they all are above. I had planned on arranging them nicely on s shelf for a end of year photo shoot, but I'm still recovering from a busy Christmas, which has not been so kind to my ME/Lyme disease, so the mosaic will just to do.....

As for my December read,  'The Great Christmas knit off' by Alexandra Brown. I have to say I really enjoyed this light heart romp full of yarn and knitting, a perfect read for over Christmas,  jammed packed full of feel good factor.

Plus it has the bonus of a cute little knitting pattern at the back of the book, yes you can knit you're own Christmas Pudding. Such a sweet little additions, not sure if my knitting skills are up to it though, I might have a go at making one for next year, although the world of knitting is a bit of a mystery, to me, give me a crochet hook and I'm fine but add in two knitting sticks  I mean needles and things start to go wrong.

Wishing all a wonderful New Years Eve how ever you are celebrating.

See you next Year....

  3. By the way I prefer the mosaic style than all books at once :)

  5. Great ideas for books. I had not heard of the Great Christmas Knit Off, I think I will download it tonight. I need a light hearted read to start the New Year,

    Happy New Year Clare,

  6. I'm really taken with the idea of a book a month - what a marvellous idea! You have inspired me! Another reason to love blogland! Lil xxx
