I got ridiculously far behind on my reviews so bear with me 😆

I listened to this Christmas novella on audiobook and I enjoyed it. It‘s set during WWII in England. Perfect for the Christmas season. 3.5⭐️

Sneaking in some reading and self-care time before the kids wake up. I've felt so crappy the last day -- turns out sugar alcohols do not agree with me! -- so it's nice to get some time to myself.

A great story set during Christmas in war-time Britain. Compelling, with a happy ending.

I'm only 3 hours down for #20in4. Hope to turn things around today!

I‘ve been wanting to read this for awhile, so when Audible offered it as a gift to their members, I grabbed it. It made me feel as though I was there in London during the war. It was very good. @Andrew65 you would like it I think. #147 #BFC21 #CSReadathon #RIF 8 #Cosyathon #TheFestiveReadathon #CYO #AVeryMerryBingo #AVeryMerryReadathon

A heart-string-tugging WWII story about two families who are affected by the bombings in London. A glimpse into what life may have actually been like for some people during that time.

🎶What Child is this
Who laid to rest
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?
So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh,
Come Peasant, King to own Him
The King of Kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.🎶
Celebrating my youngest girl born December 2, 1986!

A quick Christmastime short story to help complete my 100 books in 2019! This one seemed hastily written, using dialogue to explain the characters‘ lives instead of more nuanced methods. But it was an interesting quick look into the challenges of the Blitz.

I am reluctant to like this book about a hard-luck couple during WWII. The woman was hypercritical despite having a home and a husband, which many did not have in London during the bombings. As the story unfolds we learn why she‘s sad, & then things go bad to worse. A hopeful ending for Christmas although I‘m still not loving these characters. #holidayread

A Christmas-y WWII short story from Rhys Bowen. I quite enjoyed this. Read in one sitting. A down on their luck husband and wife duo have to evacuate on Christmas Eve due to a bombing on their street. I won't give away what happens next, bc I enjoyed the adventure better not knowing what was coming.
