Christmas Wallpapers5

…December. So that’s it, the year is done, 2019 will be here in the morning! I hope you’ve all had a fabulous Christmas and managed to have some time with friends and/or family. I’ve got to admit 2018 hasn’t been my favourite but it’s had its highlights and A Knight’s Reads is definitely one of them.

It’s been a whirlwind first 11 months since I hit that publish button on Thursday 1 February with my review of Graham Smith’s Past Echoes. So I just want to say thank you everyone for all your support, shares, comments and just reading what I’ve got to say 💖💖💖

What Have I Read?

It’s been a slow month reading wise what with social events, Christmas shopping and secret wrapping (my boys still believe! 🎅🏼🎅🏼).

As well as these four, I’ve beta read another exciting novel which I believe is out in the summer. I loved it to say the least!!

I also gave you a brace of Christmas reading suggestions – part 1 and part 2. Did you treat yourself to any of them? And I shared another in my sporadic bookish small screen viewing series!

Whats more, I brought you two fantastic cover reveals – the first for my #mamapossum Noelle Holten’s debut novel Dead Insideand the second for Leeds author Andrew Barrett for the launch of The Lock, an Eddie Collins novella.

And finally yesterday, I gave you a selection of the brilliant reads I’ve come across over the past twelve months!

What’s Coming Up?

Yet again, I’ve promised myself that I’d reduce the number of blog tours I’d commit to….that didn’t work for January now did it?!

But to kick the new year off, tomorrow I’ve got some of the upcoming reads that I’m looking forward to!

What am I Planning To Read?

What does 2019 hold?

Well there is definitely more fantastic books to come! Leeds is holding its first Lit Fest which I’m hoping to get to in March.  There’s the annual pilgrimage to Harrogate and the Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival and I am planning to get to Newcastle Noir in May.  Not to mention the other fab book launches and bookish events…

I hope you’ll join me for more fun and games!!

Happy New Year everyone!!! Here’s to 2019!!

  1. Oh, the Chestnut Man was soooo goood! ❤
    I just got a copy of Changeling two days ago. Still need to read book 2, but it's looking like such a good series.

    Happy new year!
