The Hobbit is easily one of my favourite books, especially over Christmas. It is fast becoming a tradition to read it over the festive period, and this year was no different. In fact, I had even more reason to read it, as my lovely dad bought me this beautiful Folio Society edition. Furthermore, it doubles up as my first re-read of the year.

With illustrations and a stunning cover, this book is fast becoming one of my favourites on and off the shelf!
