British Books for Your January TBR List!

Happy New Year, dear readers! Here’s hoping for a better one. I also hope you are keeping well and that books can bring you comfort and escapism during this time.





Here’s my roundup of British books hot off the press this month, chosen because they have buzz or critical acclaim or because I find them interesting. (Descriptions are taken from online retailers.) It’s a rough time for both authors and

“Maybe Judy Blume will save us all.
Maybe *she* should be President.”
claire handscombe

“Chill," Vicky says, as if such a thing were possible. Libby has never in her life been chilled; now seems an unlikely moment to try out this new stance towards events of supreme importance.”
Claire Handscombe, Unscripted

“She saw him first. Twenty years first. Yes, yes: very junior high. But this whole thing feels very junior high. Maybe that's always how it feels when you are both grown, smart, articulate, mature women. Maybe you always feel like the other person cannot possibly love him, loves instead some fictionalised version of him.”
Claire Handscombe, Unscripted

“God loves you just as you are. Pray from where you are.”
Christina Haag, Come to the Edge

“I did not know then that there are those you love no matter how much they hurt you, no matter how many years have passed since you felt them in the morning. I did not know how long it took to get over such a love, and that even when you did, when you loved again, you would always carry a sliver of it in your stitched-together heart. I did not know that you could love them in death, and that if one day they returned to you in a dream or half sleep, you might hold up your hand as she had done, because life and time had changed you.”
Christina Haag, Come to the Edge

“Sin, in the Greek, means missing the mark. An archery term. That’s all it is. That which has kept you from God.”
Christina Haag, Come to the Edge

“How much of life could he spend aching? Aching is not a stable condition; it must resolve into something”
Arthur Phillips, The Song Is You

“I think you learn more if you're laughing at the same time.”
Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows
