At the moment it would be Sleuth on Skates by Clémentine Beauvais because I’d love to run around Cambridge solving mysteries, but without there being any real danger.
Do you mean the one in my 25 Books for Book Lovers post? You probably the UK edition if it’s in English! It’s the original UK cover (but there’s also a different YA cover).
On my Kindle I also read: Never Fall Down by Patricia McCormick, The Worlds We Make by Megan Crewe (ARC), Ajax Penumbra 1969 by Robin Sloan and Perfect Lies by Kiersten White (ARC)
The Bad Beginning, The Philosopher’s Stone and The Chamber of Secrets were all re-reads
My book from the Tumblr Secret Santa arrived today, and it already got a place on my shelf. I’ve heard so many good things about Tell the Wolves I’m Home, I can’t wait to read it! Thank you to my Secret Santa for giving me this beautiful book!
Books that remind me of each other.
I finally picked out some books to get with my Christmas giftcard!
Ghost Stories by Charles Dickens

For more elegant, witty writing from a hundred years ago, try these…
Zuleika Dobson by Max Beerbohm for a hilarious fantasy novel about all the men in Oxford killing themselves out of love for one beautiful woman
Antic Hay by Aldous Huxley for an incredibly intelligent book about inflatable underpants
Decline and Fall by Evelyn Waugh for adventures of an innocent man in a deliciously sinful world
