  1. As always, thanks for the list! I’m drowning in unread books right now (right metaphor? Anyway, you get the idea) but Mongrel does look interesting . . .

  2. I also loved Blessings (and that stunning cover!). I’ve got Winter Animals, but like Marina Sofia, the comparison to Secret History is not a selling point for me so may skip it.

    1. It’s worth reading as long as you don’t expect too much, Cathy. I didn’t think it was a match for The Secret History. Amazing that comparison is still made in blurbs so many years after publication.

      1. I have a friend who has a son at Uni and she says that he and his peer group are all obsessed with The Secret History! That whole ‘dark academia’ still has real appeal.

  3. Blessings and Pity grab my attention, although it doesn’t look like Pity, at the moment, is scheduled for U.S. publication. Still, I’m going to keep my eye out for it. Thanks for this look-ahead to next month!

  4. I actually have Mongrel waiting on mt TBR (I meant to write my, but the typo isn’t wrong :D) picked up via NetGalley on its description–yet to start though. The Lodgers sounds very intriguing too.

  5. We had snow flurries on Monday; did you get any? When it’s this cold I do like to have some snow. Strangely for me, I’ve been in the mood for doorstoppers and have six on the go at the moment. Hunkering down with big books seems like a wintry activity, I suppose. I’ll look out for your reviews of these selections to see which tempt me.

    1. No snow at our level but there was tiniest dusting on the hill above our house, just a few metres higher. Definitely a doorstopper time of year. Is one of your six the Nathan Hill?
