I am posting one book per day from my extensive to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new. Don‘t judge me - I have a lot of books. Join in if you want!

This book is really disappointing. Fun idea if you're an Outlander fan but the main character was annoyingly naive, not in a cute way and the writing was not good. 30 yrs old, from Chicago, and not a shred of commonsense. Goes on a quest to follow Claire's path in Scotland to meet her own Jamie, gets into these weird, cringy situations that I found more annoying than charming. Gave up on finishing it. Hoped this would be fun but it wasn't.

Geillis Duncan was a 15 yo girl, hanged as a witch in Scotland during the reign of James VI. And this is basically an ode to her. And all women. It caught my eye at a bookstore in Edinburgh. 😍

A dark view of human nature as patterns of behaviour repeat in an old house in Berwick. CW for if you want to read it: violence against women. I hovered between pick and so-so as if you‘ve read “All The Birds, Singing” then this feels very much like more of the same and veering towards misery porn. But I also stayed up late reading it, so I‘ve gone for a pick.

This book, the first book in the DCI Bone series, set in Scotland, is currently available free in the U.K. through Amazon. May be worth checking elsewhere.

I read this and really enjoyed this last October, and it has a rating of 4.29 on Goodreads. I know none of us have enough series on the go. 🤣🙈📚📚📚📚📚📚

Bookzombie Thanks! It‘s also available for free in the US. 🙂 3w

A book that I picked up for my first read of the new year purely for its cover, which looked like somewhere to blow away the Christmas excess. What then started as a so-so read, nothing new and not grabbing me, suddenly took off (ha!) once the focus moved to the Outer Hebrides, and turned into a really sweet and moving story of family and belonging, with a little romance in there too. A lovely start to the new year.

A good way to start off the year. This is a stand-alone historical novel featuring the first king of Scotland.
