I've had a look back at my journal to see what I was reading around this time in January of years past and I've chosen a few of the best books.
(Links lead mostly to posts.)
The Secret Intensity of Everyday Life by William Nicholson
The Hare with Amber Eyes by Edmund de Waal
The Cunning Man by Robertson Davies
An Equal Stillness by Francesca Kay
The Wild Places by Robert Macfarlane
The Blue Flower by Penelope Fitzgerald
Just by the way, there's a biography of Molly Keane by her daughter Sally Phipps coming out this week.
