Six for Sunday

The August theme for Six for Sunday, hosted by A Little But a Lot is Let’s Celebrate Colour and today’s prompt is for Wintery Colours.  I’ve decided to go for books on my TBR that I’ve had for a while, but just haven’t managed to read yet as I have SO many books to read! I really, really do intend to read them before the end of the year, and they’s all make brilliant winter reads.

    1. I can’t believe I’ve had these for so long and still haven’t read them! I’m aiming to read them before the end of the year. It’s not like there’s lots of books publishing in the next few months that I’ll want! 😂
