Introducing my very monochrome Christmas list! Above are some of the things I'm lusting over at the moment moving into the festive period, who knew I was so... dull?! Clearly muted tones are a thing for me at the moment, maybe its the cold weather. 

The books are just a couple I'm interested in reading; I could do a whole post solely on future reads (maybe I will!) but these are my top two. The Lost Child of Philomena Lee is based on the new film Philomena with Judi Dench - I've not seen it but my Mum said its a great story, which hopefully will be portrayed in the book...

"When she fell pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to the convent of Roscrea, Co. Limerick, to be looked after as a ‘fallen woman’ and at the age of three her baby was whisked away and ‘sold’ to America for adoption. Coerced into signing a document promising ‘Never to Seek to Know’ what the Church did with him, she never saw him again. She would spend the next fifty years searching for her son, unaware that he spent his life searching for her."

Have I missed anything from my list?

  2. I've just finished reading The Girl you Left Behind. It's completely unrelated to Me Without You, but just as beautiful in its own way. It's a really good book, I hope you enjoy it!
