I’m linking up again with Tina @ Reading Between the Pages to look ahead at the books I’d like to read in January. My TBR won’t be as ambitious this month as I’ve got an exam I need to revise for and two pieces of coursework I really need to make a start on. Also I’m reading a massive King book, so massive it, in my opinion, counts as three books! Anyway, here’s the hopefuls that may finally make the move from the unread shelf to the read.
Under the Dome by Stephen King
In UNDER THE DOME, King has produced another riveting masterpiece. The end of every chapter hooks you into the next, drawing you inside a psychological drama that is so rich, you don’t read it, you live it.
It is the story of the small town of Chester’s Mill, Maine which is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. No one can get in and no one can get out.
The normal rules of society are suddenly changed and when food, electricity and water run short, the community begins to crumble. As a new and more sinister social order develops, Dale Barbara, Iraq veteran, teams up with a handful of intrepid citizens to fight against the corruption that is sweeping through the town and to try to discover the source of the Dome before it is too late . . .

Hey bookish friends, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and the bookish fairies brought you all the books on your wishlist. The time has come for the last book haul of 2017. I’ve received some truly amazing books this year from publishers, authors and friends, all of which I’m truly grateful for. I’ve also treated myself to many, many books and I have started using my local library again, in an attempt to cut down on buying books. For the last time this year, here’s a look at all the books I’ve received this month, including a special Christmas gifts section.

Before we get to today’s post, I just want to let you all know about my Twitter hiatus – I’m currently in “Twitter Jail.” Basically, Twitter thinks my account is a spam account due to the number of posts I’ve shared featuring links, so to combat this problem – I won’t be sharing any posts to Twitter for a while, until my account is back to normal.
Now that all my reviews for books read in November have been published, I’m linking up with Tina @ Reading Between the Pages to Look Ahead at the books I hope to read in December. This is a new monthly meme showcasing your monthly TBR and if you head over to Tina’s blog, you can submit your blog post link and see what others are reading and discover new blogs/books.
Reviews for The Foster Child by Jenny Blackhurst, The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor and Anatomy of a Scandal by Sarah Vaughan will be up on the blog this week.

Do I even need to introduce this post any more? I think it’s enough to say: it’s book haul time!

You know what time it is – it’s book haul time! A rather modest haul this month, compared to previous months but I won some amazing giveaways, which I’ll feature. I signed up to a 60 day Kindle Unlimited trial, so I think that curbed my hauling as some books I was going to buy were available there, whether I’ll read them before the trial is up is anybody’s guess. I also got my first auto-approve on Netgalley from Bookouture, which blew my mind (I mean come on, they published the Erika Foster series!)
