The Year In Books 2016

I have been inspired by another blogging pal to join in with The Year In Books 2016 which is hosted by Laura from

At the start of each month we blog about the book that we are intending to read, and, if we want to, write a few words (thoughts/comments) about the previous month's book.

So the book I have chosen for January is 'In Falling Snow' by Mary-Rose MacColl. I will let you know how I get on with it next month. 

I usually get through more than one book in a month but thought I would just stick with this one for a first go and see how I get on, if I manage to read more I will blog about them when I publish my February post.

Although I hadn't officially joined The Year In Books in December I thought I would tell you about one of the books I read in the lead up to Christmas.

Having heard about this book on a couple of friend's blogs I decided to try it and found it to be a delightful read. It is set in Moss's home village on the Somerset levels where he takes us through the year describing the flora and fauna that is found on his patch. A fascinating insight into the nature that surrounds his everyday life.

Until next time ... HAPPY READING.


  1. It's great to see another person joining in with the year in books! I'm still doing it but changing my posting to the end of the month this time as I prefer to do it that way. I read Wild Hares and Hummingbirds a couple of months ago and I also described it as delightful - I loved it!

  2. Enjoy your reading! I will enjoy your reviews. Happy New Year! xx

  3. I have left a comment on your previous post but looked up that book 'In Falling Snow' and have bought it! I should join the year in books as I am an avid reader and read 73 last year but more in 2014, 90! I read all the time. Happy reading!Thank you for listing that book.

    1. Chris, you should join in. I love reading but also love to see what others are reading. I find it is a great way to be inspired and reading something different that you wouldn't necessarily have chosen otherwise. xx

  4. I hope that you enjoy your reading Jan, I'm afraid it takes me a very long time to finish a book so it would be pointless me joining in with something like this, thank you for visiting my blog and I'm so pleased that you are joining in with the stash busting this year. :)
