Book Advent Calendar – 2 December

The book that’s behind today’s Advent window is one I read last year and was one of the highlights of my reading year. Entrancing, moving and engrossing, it’s one I’ll read again.

Even the cover is beautiful. The snow may not really be ‘falling all around us’ but at least if you read this you’ll have a white Christmas of sorts πŸ™‚

You can read my review of the beautiful Life After Life by Kate Atkinson here

  3. I couldn’t get on with this. I think I must have been the only person in the world not to. It was the repetitiveness if it that made me stop reading.

      Oh I think it’s definitely a love or loathe book. I know a few people who couldn’t get on with it. I’ve tried her other books before and didn’t finish them πŸ™‚
