Ok. So the countdown to Christmas continues! We have rounded up the top four books to read this winter. Why not bring them on your winter break with you? Sometimes a good book is the best thing to bring on holiday. We’ve combined some old classics with some new releases to help inspire you this Christmas!
1) The Edge of the Fall by Kate Williams – Set in the aftermath of World War One. Celia De Witt wanders the dirty corridors of Stoneythorpe Hall, her parents still reeling at the loss of their youngest son. She wanders aimlessly, making attempts to befriend her orphaned cousin, Louisa. But when Celia moves to London, events unfold that may whisk her away from the thoughts of the future.
2) The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien – Bilbo Baggins is a respectable hobbit, thank you very much, and he has no intention of ever leaving the Shire. Unfortunately, a meddling wizard and a band of Dwarrows makes that statement impossible to follow. So of course, he goes to steal from a dragon. Why not?
3) Humble Pie by Gordon Ramsay – In this autobiography, Gordon Ramsay explores his origins in football and the dramatic shift in career. He also speaks about his father, their rocky relationship, and the impact it had on his life. Not to mention describes the love of cooking that developed in his teens.
4) The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle – With BBC’s Sherlock gracing our screens again soon, it’s definitely worthwhile entering the intrigues of Doyle’s world again. When a man dies on the moor, it is thought that he has been chased by a demonic hound. Will Sherlock and Watson get to the bottom of this mystery before the hound strikes once more.
