My November Book Selection at Hertford Library


Good Morning Lovelies, 

With the colder months definitely now settling in, it is the most perfect time to head to the library and grab a book to snuggle up with.

This month I have chosen the following ones to be displayed in Hertford Library, so pop down there if you can to pick one up. If you aren’t local though, I hope you can find them in your local one because they are fantastic. My November choices are…

Calm Christmas and a Happy New Year: A Little Book of Festive Joy by Beth Kempton: With a podcast to go with this great book, Kempton has made a fantastic non-fiction guide to get ready for Christmas weeks ahead of the big day. It’s so effective that I’m already feeling a lot more relaxed about the celebrations this year. 

The Pumpkin Spice Cafe by Laura Gilmore: With Christmas still a few weeks away, there is still time to grab a PSL and enjoy this cosy autumn book. Romance feels the pages of this very You’ve Got Mail type novel. 

How The Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss: Get ready for Christmas with this incredible children’s book. The Grinch is a character we all know and love, even in his loathing ways. 

The Arctic Curry Club by Dani Redd: Autumn and winter is the perfect time to get cooking. Be inspired by this brilliant story about self discovery, adventure and an arctic romance. 

The Museum of Ordinary People by Mike Gayle: Telling human stories in fictional realms, Gayle has brought together two characters who not only discover their real purpose in life but also those of others. Beautifully written in every way. 

Days at the Morisaki Bookshop by Satoshi Yagisawa: When she inherits a bookshop, the main character in this book discovers more amongst the pages inside than she could have imagined. Especially when they reflect her own story back to her. 

The Keeper of Stories by Sally Page: How long do you keep a story someone has told you in your memory? For the main character in The Keeper of Stories, she stores them forever. Safe in the hands of her mind. Revisiting them whenever she can, the book tells of the effortless nature that she goes on to help others recall what has happened to them as well. 

Skipping Christmas by John Grisham: Ever seen the film, Christmas With The Kranks, starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Tim Allen? Well, this novel is what it is based on. Grisham is often know for his crime fiction, yet, this is a heartwarming story from the author instead. 

Weirdo by Sara Pascoe: The debut novel from comedian Pascoe tells the story of love but in a different way. Given a second chance at romance, Pascoe’s leading lady is not like anything you may have read before. Funny, sensitive and heart-warming in every way. 

Kala by Colin Walsh: If you love a thriller then this is the book for you. When three friends reunite in their Irish set hometown, they begin to recall the events of the day that changed their lives. Gripping throughout, you will honestly not be able to put this one down.

Book of the Month: Swimming For Beginners by Nicola Gill: Filled with humour but also raw and honest conversations, this is set to be one of the biggest books of the year. And I can see why! With a great job, perfect relationship and a set idea of never having kids, Loretta is shocked when she is left with a child in an airport. Turning both their worlds upside down, the book flows through the highs and the lows, leading to laughs one minute and tears the next. A perfect heart warming read for those cold November days.
