Mehso-so

I was on board until the ridiculous climax, which was just painful. The characters not talking, keeping secrets, and so on was frustrating but also pretty realistic. I mean, for a holiday romance. The disability rep and the Jewish life view was all really good. I‘m curious how Meltzer will follow up this debut as she seems to have written herself, and authors who start that way don‘t always have much else to do after that. A good-enough read.

ravenlee My first finish of December (it‘s been a heck of a week!) is also my #bookspin for December. @TheAromaofBooks 1h

This was extremely repetitive and the twist was super predictable. I had high hopes for this one so I‘m a little bummed. The writing was beautiful though, and I enjoyed the fun little blurbs about her ancestors.

16 pts for #TeamGameSleighers

This was my #BookSpin for November but I struggled to pick it back up when I put it down so I just finished it now :(

TheAromaofBooks I had similar feelings about this one, which was an extra shame because I have a beautiful OwlCrate edition! 4h

Pixel decided to jump in the photo at the last minute. This book was my December #bookspin. A queer story within a story within a story, illustrations, footnotes, and a broken fourth wall - this was 5 stars for me! @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 4h

Finished my December #BookSpin this was a new genre for me and I don‘t think I will be forgetting the phrase “the Kringle tingles” anytime soon 😅 it was silly and naughty and yet sweet. #WinterGames #WinterGames2021 #TeamGameSleighers #Adventathon #WrapItUpReadathon 197 words for #WGWordSearch

This was a delightful 5 🌟 read. Family and friends face challenges and through it all love fills their hearts. There's puppies too, a really feel good story, predictable but perfect for the holiday. #BookSpinBingo #WinterGames2021 #TeamGameSleighers @TheAromaofBooks my #BookSpin number 10 @StayCurious #AVeryMerryReadathon #Wintercosy #WrapItUpReadathon

When Alex attempts to use a celebration to rid herself of the magic she sees as a curse, it results in her family, the living and the dead, disappearing from this plane.

Reading this so close to Cemetery Boys was interesting. Instead of someone trying to find his place, Alex is desperate to cut herself off from her heritage. Watching her growth as she deals with insecurities was wonderful to see. A little predictable, but lots of fun. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

ozma.of.oz @TheAromaofBooks My #BookSpin read! The fastest I‘ve ever finished one, I think! 😆 16h

It‘s a pick but not a super strong pick. I don‘t really read books like this except at Christmas. Maybe it‘s my lack of the Hallmark channel, maybe it‘s my love of 90s rom-coms (Meg Ryan +Tom Hanks ❤️). Anyhow this wasn‘t profound & not realistic but it was a nice, quick, non thinking book which I need this time of year. I remind myself why I only read these types of books once a year. 26 points #mistletoemaniacs
