A few more #wintergames wrap-ups. #snowangels

For the #CloakandDaggerChristmas challenge, I completed 7 prompts, though 2 of them were finished a few days after the Dec. 25 deadline. Thanks to @Ruthiella for hosting!

Thanks to @DieAReader @Andrew65 @GHABI4ROSES for the extended #rushathon readathon. I managed to read 76 books during the 4 months.

kwmg40 #BookSpinBingo was fun as usual, though I didn't finish either my #BookSpin or #DoubleSpin book. But I did get a bingo! @TheAromaofBooks

I loved doing the #CandylandReadathon and got 3 badges in addition to a couple of bingos! Thank you @Catsandbooks for hosting!

Christmas at the Cat Caf | Jessica Redland
post image
Pickpick

Having discovered Jessica Redland last Christmas and enjoyed her books since, I was keen to jump into this book about Tabby setting up a Cat Cafe, which seems a novel concept. Unfortunately just before opening her partner deserts her and if that isn‘t enough she also is suffering from the debilitating condition of fibromyalgia. There also seem to be people around her that want to stop the cafe opening.

Andrew65 I loved this book as much as her previous books and do enjoy the writing style of her books, and the romance style of them. I do feel it‘s good that people write about people suffering with medical conditions, and I learned a lot about fibromyalgia in this book which will make me understand it better, but I can see how this might put some people off who read books for escapism. 3mo
Andrew65 However I have to say I felt this was written very well into the book, and only added to the reading experience and the story for me.

I felt the story was very well written, and in particular the slow burn of the developing relationship in Tabby‘s life, and found myself rooting for them. I loved the main characters and was very glad to spend some of the Christmas season with them.

Andrew65 I‘m not particularly a cat person, but despite that I did love the story and the unique cat part of it, although I‘m sure I wouldn‘t spend the extra money to go to a cat cafe. Just a word of warning if anyone is a cat lover there is one part of the story that could be upsetting. However, even that I feel was very well written in the story.

Andrew65 Overall if you enjoy these romance style of books I would definitely recommend this book, and gave it five stars. There isn‘t one book by Jessica Redland that I haven‘t enjoyed very much, and look forward to reading more books by her.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

I‘m finding the bingo cards very difficult to complete, which is odd given how much I read! So I‘m happy to say, I completed this bingo board!

‘One Christmas wish, two brothers, and a lifetime of hope are on the line..‘

This was my second time reading this. The perfect book to end December with.

‘Women imprisoned by superstition, chained by guilt..‘

This was a beautiful, but grim, fairytale. Great read for the winter time.

Mehso-so

I read this a few years ago but didn‘t remember what happened in the story. It was a little underwhelming and the ending felt a little rushed. I enjoyed it much better as a #BuddyRead. The cover is pretty.
