Novel Insights January Review

The first month of the new decade is almost over! It has been a cold and snowy month, which made me want to settle down with a couple of chunky novels alongside some shorter reads.

In no particular order, my top three reads in January were:

The Shuttle by Frances Hodgson Burnett – read review

Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee – read review

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows – read review

I also read and enjoyed these books:

Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf – read review
Death in Venice by Thomas Mann – read review
Symposium by Muriel Spark – read review
The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins – read review

What were your favourite reads in January?

  1. My favourite read from the month of January has got to be Her Fearful Symmetry. It was written by the author of Time Traveller’s Wife, whose name I can never get right so I’m not going to attempt it. If you liked Time Traveller’s Wife, you will love this. Brilliant!! 🙂

  2. Hoorah for The Shuttle and The Guernsey one too… I must read Disgrace soon.
