midwinter hop 2018Midwinter Eve is always my favourite hop of the year.  There’s something about the badge that draws me back!  Thank you, BookHounds for making it all possible.

Midwinter is probably my favourite time, provided I’m not chasing my tailing trying to do too much before visitors arrive. The days are dark, true, but there is promise beyond them. Winter solstice is the turning point, and I immediately appreciate the start of slightly longer days, even if the earth’s wobble does mean that sunrise gets a few minutes later before it ‘turns the corner’, the sunsets are slightly later straight away.  Those days are lengthening, and the birds start to sing to advertise their territories!

My Midwinter prize

The prize this year is one book from my choice of Books of the Year, to one winner internationally.  You can see the full list and summaries on this post from Monday, but you can also click the titles here to go to my reviews of them.
