It's that time again, where I post my favourite book from a month of reading and you tell me that I made the wrong choice.
I've noticed that there's really not enough classics in these posts, so that's definitely something I need to work on for next year.
I had a few faves from this month, Annihilation is a fantastically weird sci-fi story, I haven't seen the film yet or read the sequels so I'll have to do that eventually.
I saw The Night Manager TV show a couple of years ago, and loved it, they might be more due to the amazing casting of High Laurie and Tom Hiddlestons than the quality of the story though. The plot of the book was so much more interesting and I felt that the ending was more realistic than the one in the show.
Babylon's Ashes wins the battle of the books this month because the story is just crazy. There's so much going on with the plot and it really makes suffering through the previous book worthwhile. I am praying to Jeff Bezos that the TV show lasts long enough for me to see the events of this book on screen.
I have to mention Lisey's Story here because @jobis89
would probably be mean to me if I didn't.
The story of this one is really strange and also amazing, Lisey is one of the best female characters that King has written. This book isn't in my top 10 Kings but I'd still recommend that you give it a chance!
