Day two on our #winterreads and Editorial Director Amber is sharing her Christmas reading pile…
The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern
Open - Andre Agassi
Trust Your Eyes - Linwood Barclay
The Mistletoe Bride - Kate Mosse
Siege & Storm - Leigh Bardugo
(Accessorised with some beautifully glittery Grisha inspired stags!)
As the first to depart Fierce Fiction Towers for the Christmas holidays (as of tomorrow!), snr publicity manager Nina is sharing her #winterreads pile today.
One of the few times of year where books that *are not YA or kids* creep into the reading pile, she will be losing herself in the below choices, by the fire in Suffolk, or wrapped up warm in London…
The Luminaries - Eleanor Catton (finally - it is far too big for the commute)
I Am Malala - Malala Yousafzai
Dream Songs volumes 1 & 2 - George RR Martin
Tinder - Sally Gardner & David Roberts (a winter re-read essential)
The Lover’s Dictionary - David Levithan (always re-read)
I Capture the Castle - Dodie Smith (essential Suffolk re-read)
Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares - Rachel Cohn and David Levithan (essential Christmas re-read!)
How They Met - David Levithan (I seriously think I might read anything he has ever written…)
And the cute little snowglobe on top is place holding for an essential wintery re-read - The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
(and to be honest, there may be a few more, watch this space - Nina has a whole month off and she reads super fast!)
Carey, and her little sister Janessa, are the story behind If You Find Me.
Scroll through the photos for our character profiles from the very special proof we made for If You Find Me. Looks pretty good on our bookshelves, even if we do say so ourselves.
The paperback is out in January and we cannot wait!
