Countdown to 2023 – Day 12 ‘Holly and Ivy’ (19 days remaining)


Today is day 12 of my countdown to 2023.  Today’s prompt is ‘Holly and Ivy’.  This is another fairly recent book that is beautifully written.  The attention to detail, the research that has clearly been undertaken and the whole ‘ode to words’ is mesmerising.   The prompts can be found here if you want to join in.  I’m hoping to use mostly books read this year.  Let’s begin:

 HOLLY AND IVY (A book with great world building)

Babel, Or the Necessity of Violence: An Arcane History of the Oxford Translators’ Revolution by R.F. Kuang.  Really, this book is so well thought out.  I loved the academic setting, the historic feel and the wealth of information that goes into setting the scene.


Tomorrow: Feast – a book that was magnificent
