The December choice of
Skipping Christmas by John Grisham was a suitable short read for the busy month leading up to Christmas. Most people enjoyed the book but had different opinions of the Krank family who, by booking a cruise, had tried to get away from the madness of Christmas. Of course it didn’t quite work out the way they had planned but perhaps the rather irritating, baa-humbug Mr Krank redeemed himself in the end. Not a typical John Grisham at all, but a quick light read.
A diverse lot of books we have read this last year and it’s so good to be introduced to different authors and books, some of which one wouldn’t necessarily choose oneself.
Looking forward to another stimulating year of reading and wishing you all a Happy New Year and healthy 2014.
