Sorry this is a week late but as you can imagine at this time of year, I run out of hours in the day, days in the week!!!! Anyway this book has to appear here for December as it is one of my favourites which I read every year, like Pride & Prejudice.
You will all know the story of Ebenezer Scrooge from films and TV programmes so I don’t need to give you a synopsis. It is, in my opinion, the best Dickens book as it is a story of hope and no mater how many times you read it, you can’t help but be uplifted by Scrooge’s change of heart after being visited by the three Ghosts.
I also think that the sentiment of keeping the spirit of Christmas in your heart all year is something we should all strive for.
I also have a second book this month;
Nigella’s cook books are written with a sense of fun and she shares bits of her life in her writing around the recipes, so you can actually read her cook books, not just use them. I use her Christmas cookbook a lot at this time of year but also have used several of the recipes during the course of the year too. The recipes are very easy to follow and if you do not like a particular ingredient you can change it and the recipe still turns out very well.
I have really enjoyed my Friday Book Club, once a month, and hope you have enjoyed my suggestions. I will be carrying on with this next year and have a whole bookshelf full of books to read which is one thing I will be doing over the Christmas holidays.
I hope you get lots of books in your Christmas stockings (Books are always on my Christmas list!). Happy Christmas Reading.
Hugs, Susie xx
