The final book in this series is set at Christmas but really didn‘t deliver on any holiday feels for me. It felt like a jumble of problems generated at holiday time and wrapped up before New Years. #wintergames

Bk10 of the #WinterGames for #TeamNutcracker is done! I wish I could live in the world that Colgan creates, it‘s such a quirky, beautiful & amazing place, plus living in a lighthouse is something I‘ve always wanted to do. Polly is in a very happy place, living with her fiancée Huckle in Mount Polbearnes lighthouse & running her bakery. Then her friend Kerensa drops a bombshell which threatens to tear her world apart. 21pts #PointsTotal-1,153

Bk10 of the #WinterGames for #TeamNutcracker is this cute #HolidayRead from Jenny Colgan. There‘s only a few “chick lit” authors I like & she‘s one of them. The whole Beach Street Bakery series is fantastic, mostly because of a puffin called Neil. 1pt + 5 from games #PointsTotal-1,131

#WinterGames Yay! I finished my first #HolidayBook! It was an okay romance about a young woman who found her niche in baking wonderful breads and pastries and saving a Puffin Sanctuary off the coast of Britain. She‘s in love with an American (who sounded like a Texan) and her best friend is about to give birth. I guess it had a happy ending, but it was so-so. There you go Team #ReadNosedReindeer. I‘m off to a birthday dinner!

StayCurious Fantastic! +20 for holiday Read, + 1 for participation = 21 points 2mo

Fiction -most kinds. Wine, decaf tea, espresso in the morning to get my motor running 🤣 I like most things book related 📚. Hand cream, lip balm, moisturizer winter makes me shrivel up and flake away. Dark chocolate. Gingerbread. Shortbread. Love Actually. Die Hard. All the claymation movies. I LOVE old Christmas glass ornaments and bottle brush trees #xmasfaves #CanuckChristmasSwap

Eating leftover pumpkin roll with whip cream & caramel from my dad's Christmas party yesterday. I'm also starting Christmas at Little Beach Street Bakery & this seemed like a good treat for the occasion. I probably won't finish the book before 2019, but I'll at least get a good start on it.

Just got home (a blizzard is brewing outside) & I found this outside my door!!! Thank you so much @tracy.m.ng

I've been wanting to read The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein since I found out about its existence! And Christmas at Little Beach Street Bakery sounds like the perfect Xmas read for me, it's honestly just what I needed! And of course my sweet tooth is going to enjoy the Nips very very much! #MerryAndBrightSwap @EH2018

TheReadingMermaid The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein was so amazing! Enjoy! 13mo

This is the 3rd in the Beach Street Bakery series and while the author indicates these could be read as stand alone, I think the series overall was more enjoyable reading them in order. This one is full of drama, but was also a sweet, heavenly slice of holiday cheer! True to fashion with her other books in this series, the author shares recipes from the famous treats prepared within Polly‘s bakery... can‘t wait to try the hot chocolate myself!

Finished up the Little Beach Street Bakery series tonight. I hope she writes more,3 just isn‘t enough, even with the caps lock & abundance of !!! Xmas is coming & Polly is run off her feet at the Bakery, Reuben insists she cater his family Xmas party, the wife of her “long lost” father finds her to tell her he‘s dying & wants to see her & Kerensa dumps a huge secret into her lap, begging her not to tell Huckle which of course backfires hugely.🥧🎄

Ok I guess I had one last book in me. This is a sweet Christmas read set in Cornwall (what is really St. Michael‘s Mount) and the sense of place is well executed. If you want a sweet read set in a windmill in Cornwall complete with pet puffin for a Christmas read then this is calling your name. I have not read the other 2 in this series but probably not necessary. Onward to 2018 and Happy New Year Littens!!🍾🥂🎉🎉🎉🎉

I started this on the day before Christmas Eve, but the holidays were so busy that I barely had any time to read. And I've also been spending my spare time playing the Sims 4 that I got for Christmas. I should be able to finish it soon!

Finished this today!! Was a quick read which was what I was looking for today- was one of those books that was fine- not horrible, not wonderful but fine. It's a story of community & friendship & love & being present so what you have doesn't slip away. Snowball spent much of my reading time in my lap (we were away for a few days & now she won't let us out of her sight)

Meh. I didn't feel connected to the characters and actually thought some were rather annoying. Didn't like this nearly as much as The Bookshop on the Corner.

Gissy So sad😔It was in my wish list 2y
Lmstraubie @Gissy You may like it. It has a 75% rating on Litsy. I hadn't read the ones that came before this (you didn't need to), but that may have helped me be more connected to the characters. 2y

This is a definite step above your standard holiday fluff. Interesting characters, an unexpected climax and just a beautifully written and evocative ending. My first Jenny Colgan, but not my last.

This was better than I thought it would be! Not just your typical Christmas fluff. Don‘t get me wrong, I‘m fine with fluff, but this was just better. A really fun, Christmas time read. 😊🎄

Also, I now want a pet puffin.

Birdsong28 I found that with Jenny Colgan books they look like "Fluff" but they tackle some serious issues. Also I am glad I'm not alone in wanting a Puffin after reading this series ? ?? 2y
GypsyKat @Birdsong28 Haha, right? I wanna hear that little “eep!” 😆 2y
shelbyy @GypsyKat I have this one, but do you think I need to read the first two books (Little Beach Street Bakery and Summer at the Little Beach Street Bakery) before the Christmas one? 2y

GypsyKat @shelbyy15 this could definitely be a stand alone book, and I personally didn‘t feel like I had missed anything. However, if you already have the other ones you might want to read them first just to avoid possible spoilers. 2y

This book is seriously so adorable. I loved it. The characters are great and the story was just warm and fuzzy and great for this time of year. It‘s super unrealistic and a bit idealistic, but I loved it and it really made me happy! (Don‘t mind the intruder in the post lol ).

Bought this one a little while back and realized it was part of a series. Got through those two books and finally getting to the book I originally wanted to read.

LauraBrook I got this as an ARC from LibraryThing, and I need to pick it up and get started! Do you think I‘ll be okay without having read the other books first? 2y

Lauren.Archer @LauraBrook i think you will enjoy more if you read the first two books. This is a continuation of the other books. It definitely makes assumptions you have read the previous ones. 2y
Jess_Read_This @Lauren.Archer @LauraBrook I just finished this yesterday without reading the first two. I agree with, Lauren, read the first two before this. Even though Colgan says it can e read alone; I know I would have enjoyed it more if I was invested in the characters by reading the first two. It was super cute though. 2y
LauraBrook @Lauren.Archer and @Jess_Read_This Thank you for letting me know! Will track down the others and read them first. 👍🏼 2y

🎄🎅🏻🎄 Despite the author‘s initial assurances if you hadn‘t read the previous books in the series, you‘d be fine reading this one. I think I‘d have enjoyed it more if I was invested in the characters from the prior books.
It was cute and the bakery items were exquisite sounding. The story was part absurd, part comical, part serious sounding as the characters‘ are changing rapidly around Christmas.

#ChristmasRead

TheSketchyReader I‘ve read the entire trilogy and I agree with you. When I blog about this book this week I‘ll suggest reading the first two before reading the Christmas installment. 2y
Jess_Read_This @TheSketchyReader Definitely! I almost put it down when I saw it was the third in the trilogy but Colgan had written it was perfectly fine to go ahead and read this one if you hadn‘t read the others. I know I was missing too much of the relationships backgrounds to appreciate the storyline. It was a cute story but would be so much better if I had come to care more for the characters. 2y
peaknit Thanks for this! I got this one but think it may wait until next year so I can read the others first. I have other holiday books to read:) 2y
