Dear Santa | Nancy Naigle

3/5 ⭐️ Hallmark-esque Christmas story. I wasn't crazy about the characters, especially the guy. But least there was a HEA.

#joyousjanuary #readathon @andrew65
Book 2.5 in readathon this week (review bk2 to follow). I've borrowed bk6 in the jack parlabane series from the lib + noticed on gr there was a bk 5.5 which gives some context to bk 6. Not sure how I feel abt series having these mini stories because as a completist I feel compelled to read so reverted to my kindle. Anyway at 56 pages an enjoyable romp with Jack exposing shenanigans in m.o.d.

I‘m on a roll with #unpopularopinions. Clearly cowboy romances are not my thing. I found the writing clunky and repetitive. The MCs were immature, and for characters who were supposedly 34 (the hero, Jericho) and early-20s (the heroine, Honey), ridiculously childish in their behavior. Honey was also obsessed with her virginity and with finding someone to hook up with so she‘d no longer be a virgin. It was obnoxious.

Cinfhen Yeah/ that‘s a #pass 😁 21h

Hogfather | Terry Pratchett

New episode just dropped! We discuss Terry Pratchett's Hogfather, The Jerry Seinfeld comedy sitcom, Gilmore Girls, and much much more. How do we fit it all into one episode? Easy, it's an hour long.

Greenglass House | Kate Milford

Pickpick

I was a bit hesitant when a RPG played a big part in the story - but oh! it ended up being rather wonderful. Greenglass House was magnificent - I loved how the story talked about adoption and belonging - and how the history of Greenglass House and the people who lived there or visited played such an integral role in how the story unfolded.

It‘s also kind of niche - but I really like stories that involve stained glass windows.

DGRachel That‘s a beautiful cover. 2d
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @DGRachel, stunning - and quite old fashioned for a book published in 2014. 2d
ravenlee I just love this series! The adoption/belonging angle continues to develop in the second book, too. 2d

thegirlwiththelibrarybag @ravenlee, excellent! The library had the next one - so I hope to get to it soon. 2d
ravenlee I‘ve read all the Greenglass books, but I didn‘t care for the historical ones as much (though the second of those was better than the first). The Thief Knot also has a really good storyline about finding friends you can be yourself with, even if you‘re a little…odd. 2d
thegirlwiththelibrarybag @ravenlee, ahh ok - so more of a Greenglass universe rather than stories with Milo. Good to know. 2d

Prepping the Hogfather episode! This was the first Discworld novel I've read and I have to say that I feel sort of abashed that it took so long. It's very British, very funny, and right up my alley.

Ruthiella I only read my first Discworld book last year and feel the same! Totally my sense of humor and why did I wait so long? 😆 2d

In a Holidaze | Christina Lauren

Pickpick

In a Holidaze, by Christina Lauren, is a perfect book to read at the holidays. It follows Mae, a girl who has spent every Christmas at her family‘s cabin with the people she loves most. Mae hates change, so when she finds out that the cabin is being sold, she is very crushed. She‘s scared that the bonds between her friends and family won‘t be the same. As she tries to save the cabin, she forms an unexpected relationship with her lifelong friend.

maria.pickering The first-person pov makes for many funny moments, so I‘d really recommend this book to anyone who likes rom-coms. The pov is established by the use of pronouns. 2d
MissYaremcio Thank you for the review Maria! 6/6 2d
