1) Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher
Read: 1 December 2008 - 10 January 2009
One of my all-time favourites. A feel-good book, perfect for snuggling up with a blanket on a cold winter day.
2) The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman
Read: 11 - 27 January
Last book in the His Dark Materials trilogy (a name I'm still not sure I understand). Not as good as the second, but a satisfactory, if somewhat tragic, conclusion.
