The Girl in Red* by Christina Henry

The Girl in Red by Christina Henry

I adored Melissa de la Cruz's Blue Bloods series when I was younger and for whatever reason haven't picked any of her other works up. Contemporary or fantasy! I've had this one of my general TBR for a little while and if I'm honest used a random number generator to help me choose this one. I highly reccommend the method if you haven't a clue what to read next.

If You Find me by Emily Murdoch

If You Find me by Emily Murdoch

I consider this one me giving into peer pressure a little bit. Two of the ladies I work with have been thrusting Good Omens into my hand for at least a year now and with the new show having recently aired I figured I'd better do it soon. It looks like the kind of show I'd love, my family would love and Sam would love. So, of course, you have to read the book before you watch the show. Basically, the antichrist has been misplaced and an Angel and a Demon must work together to find him. Why I haven't picked it up sooner I don't know.

The Sisters of the Winterwood* by Rena Rossner

The Sisters of the Winterwood by Rena Rossner

Another dissertation pick. I feel like I've kind cheated the system because I get to read YA and fantasy for my topic. This has been on my TBR for ages and now I actually get to analyse it. Inspired by the Little Red Riding Hood fairytale but seems like it has a real-life of its own. I have a feeling I'm going to love this.

Number one on the holiday TBR, not that I intend to read them in any specific order, is one I'm reading for my dissertation. The topic I chose to explore is how is gender presented in fairytales, specifically Red Riding Hood. I was so excited when I found out that Christina Henry was doing her own rendition of this story. A massive thank you to Titan for sending a copy over.

Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz

Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz

I'll be frank, this one was also chosen via my random number generator and I have completely forgotten what the premise is. I remember being super excited about it when I picked it up all those....years (eeeep) ago. I think that just shows you the state of my TBR. It seems like a thriller/romance and I'm here for it.

Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

I've had my eye on this for ages and when I got a message from Little Brown about reading it for review purposes I squealed. Much to the delight of everyone that was around me at the time. I got Bear and the Nightingale vibes from the cover and the synopsis, which was one of my favourite books when I read them. I was devastated when that series ended so hopefully this can fill that gap for me.
