National Read A Book Day

Evening Bookworms

Did you know that Wednesday was National Read A Book Day?  I celebrated by visiting the mobile library (which happened to be in the village on the same day) and collected a small haul of books.

Here is my b ;

Yes I'm one of the millions enjoying Game of Thrones.  I haven't read the books by George R R Martin but when I spotted a graphic novel version I just had to borrow it.  I got into Graphic Novels about 2 years ago, so I'm always on the lookout. 

I'm a bit of an M R James fan.  I love a good ghost or spooky story have a few of his collection on my shelves.  This book as recommend to me at an M R James Evening where the host read 2 stories by M R James and then gave a short history talk about the author.  The family lived locally so I'm expecting this to be very interesting. 

Anyone who knows me well, knows my obssession with Scotland so this book will come as no surprise!  It follows Anne Cholawo who leaves London and moves to Isle of Soay.  For someone who dreams of moving to Scotland I'm very excited about reading this. 

I picked A Wolf called Romeo for two reasons, firstly wolves are one of my favourite animals and because I recently saw this youtube video.  It depicts such a beautiful scene. 

A Change is Gonna Come would not be a book I would normally pick up but I follow Bookaholic Confessions and Holly the blog author wrote a very compelling review so I thought I would give it a go.  It's a collection of stories and poetry.

Aunt Dimity and the Duke is the second novel in this series, you can see my review of the first one here.

I came across Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill on a friend's list on Goodreads website. This is the first on in the Chicagoland Vampires series.  It's been a while since I read a Vampire novel so I'm looking forward to this.

I also picked up these 4 creative books.  I shall pick some projects and them share them on my crafting blog.
