The five books I’m taking on holiday (I can’t wait!)

After finally getting through my epic pile of books – and a good few more along the way – I found that I was approaching my holiday with nothing to read! Oh no! Cue a trip to get hold of some exciting books to accompany my travels… here’s what I’m reading and why I’m excited!

A rather good radio play – as they go. Gaiman and Pratchett’s Good Omens on BBC radio.

Due to human error, both the angels and demons responsible lose track of the anti-Christ, meaning he grows up in ignorance of his destiny. As the time for the apocalypse draws near and the horsemen gather, angel Aziraphale and demon Crowley search for him in an attempt to save the world they have grown fond of, Adam becomes aware of his destiny and witch hunters, mediums and more are drawn to a remote village in the countryside – all according to the nice prophecies of Agnes Nutter.

I read Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett a long while ago, and really enjoyed it. Sadly I’d borrowed the copy from someone and so my inclination to re-read was curbed, UNTIL I found that it was being produced as a radio play over Christmas!
