I know it may be a little early but there are so many amazing books, amazing editions of books, coming out this season and I want to share with you the ones I’m most looking forward to (and some oldies I would just really like for Christmas)!
1. The new special-edition hardback Agatha Christies
Harper Collins released a special edition hardcover of Murder on the Orient Express last year, and they’re following it with The ABC Murders (my fave Christie), 4:50 From Paddington and the Mystery of the Blue Train. They are beautiful.
2. The Boy – Oliver Jeffers
Containing three stories and a load of sketches from the making of those stories, The Boy is a kind of behind-the-scenes look at how Jeffers works and that is very exciting to me!
3. Feminists Don’t Wear Pink and Other Lies – edited by Scarlett Curtis
This contemporary collection of feminist essays seems really interesting and definitely like a book worth owning!
4. Vegan Christmas – Gaz Oakley
Because I don’t own a Christmas cookbook and this one seems great! I only had a quick flick through it so far but it doesn’t look like it uses any weird/expensive ingredients and I’m all for more food inspo. One does get to the point where one lives off pasta and bourbon biscuits occasionally… But that won’t do at Christmas!
5. Hercule Poirot’s Christmas – Agatha Christie (2006 Facsimile Edition)
An old edition, but I do love the facsimile editions of Christie’s books Harper Collins released in 2005/2006. Who doesn’t want a festive Poirot story?
6. The One Hundred Nights of Hero – Isabel Greenberg
Published in 2016, so not a release this year but still one I’m interested in owning, the One Hundred Nights of Hero is a gorgeous hardback “feminist fairytale” and I do love Greenberg’s illustrations!
If you’re interested in any of these books, I would recommend ordering them from your local indie bookshop – most will take orders over the phone and post your order to you if you’re not close enough to pop in!
Thanks for reading,
