Books I Took to München!

One of the things that I wanted to do before 2016 ended was to visit München for the Christmas Markets and I'll be putting up my post showing some of the photos I took in a couple days. But first, The books I took. It ended up being very similar to the books I took to Germany last Christmas. Two Deavers: Check! A Christmas story: Check! Something a little fantasy: Check! A murder mystery: Check! Completely unintentional, but obviously says something about my reading habits...



I've been meaning to start a new Deaver series for a while now, since I got up to date with his Katherine Dance one over Winter last year and there's no new book in sight. So why not his most famous series, the Lincoln Rhyme series? I tried over Summer too. I didn't actually get around to starting them but with my grandpa sending me home with some of the books missing from my collection, I'm all the more ready to dive in.

This was a book that I had started pre-putting it on my Winter TBR so it's been a 'current read' for a while now. I was hoping to finish it while I was away so I could do a little giveaway with my extra copies but that might have to wait until next year now. I just haven't had the urge to continue reading it.
I just wanted to read...

The Curse of the Gloamglozer by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell
I finally started my re-read of The Edge Chronicles. Are you amazed? I'm amazed. I wanted to start it in Summer, then Autumn, then Winter. But I finally started it while I was away and it was nice to revisit that world. The Quint Trilogy wasn't one that I re-read over and over as a kid so it was relatively fresh too.

Lastly, another from my Winter TBR and no surprise to anybody. I made it all the way to December without reading this even though I started the Shakespeare series back in October. I'm currently reading this and loving it. So far there's none of the issues I've had with the series so far, like slut-shaming, and the Christmas aspect is added without being shoehorned into every sentence.

What do you think of my choices?
