November 2017: #WrapUp

Tomorrow marks the start of the festive period so I’ll be putting up my Christmas tree and stocking up on Ferraro Rochers – but before I get all festive, let’s officially wrap up November by taking a look at all my bookish activity. A very mixed reading month, this month, some books I absolutely loved and some just weren’t to my liking – I guess you can’t love ’em all! I read a total of 16 books this month.

December’s book is Abandon by Blake Crouch

Abandon - Blake Crouch

On Christmas Day in 1893, every man, woman, and child in a remote gold-mining town disappeared, belongings forsaken, meals left to freeze in vacant cabins—and not a single bone was ever found.

One hundred sixteen years later, two backcountry guides are hired by a history professor and his journalist daughter to lead them to the abandoned mining town so they can learn what happened. Recently, a similar party had also attempted to explore the town and was never heard from again. Now the area is believed to be haunted. This crew is about to discover, twenty miles from civilization with a blizzard bearing down, that they are not alone, and the past is very much alive.

And that’s a wrap, folks, I wish you all a festive and bookish December!
