Read the first of these stories about two disillusioned individuals escaping their professions and finding each other in a ski resort in Denver. It was amusing and had a satisfying ending - just what I want from a holiday short story! #150 #BookSpinBingo #10 #BS #BFC21 #DashingDecember #CSReadathon #RIF #Jinglebellathon #Cosyathon #TheFestiveReadathon #CYO #MERRY&BRIGHT #MerryBookmas #AVeryMerryBingo #AnyWayYouReadathon #Wintercosy #AVeryMerryRead

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

Andrew65 Thanks @Allylu just downloaded it. 😊 I am enjoying Rhys Bowen‘s Molly Malone Series. 10mo

Just found and listened to this Middle Grade book about a group of kids and their adventures seeing Santa at the Mall. It was hilarious! A million hundred #WGWordSearch words and lots of laughs. #146 #BookSpinBingo #15 #BFC21 #CSReadathon #RIF #Fairytaleathon #Cosyathon #TheFestiveReadathon #AVeryMerryBingo #Wintercosy #LittenListen #AVeryMerryReadathon

Finished the #MistletoeManiacs #TeamBuddyRead. There could have been more festivities and #WGWordSearch words IMHO. There were some twists and turns. But truly, I have never heard of a town having a viewing of Midnight Mass at the Vatican with a bar. That just made me laugh! #144 #BFC21 #CSReadathon #RIF #TistheReadson #Fairytaleathon #Cosyathon #FestiveReadathon #CYO #MerryBookmas #AVeryMerryBingo #Wintercosy #LittenListen #AVeryMerryReadathon

Of the three books in the Men At Work based around holidays, this was second best. If you're looking for something more focused on Hanukkah (but lightly) this fits the bill. Ian is Flash's boss and they hooked up six months ago. Ian is a goody-two-shoes wealthy son of a Senator. Veronica is a lady welder, hence the Flash nickname. This book was just as spicy as the previous two but there was some added light kink in this, too.

My second ever Christie and first Hecule Poirot book. This one kept me guessing who done it and I can see (again) why Agatha Christie is so popular. It felt set in it's contemporary time but didn't feel stodgy by today's standards. I will certainly be reading others by this author.

bthegood Your review is spot on - I think that is why I have fallen in love with Christie books - they seem to feel current and I am always guessing until the end!! Will add to my TBR - (edited) 2y

Set over the course of a year, we follow Jess and Alex, who meet while sharing a home with 3 others. Both are at a crossroads in life and starting over. I felt that we got to know Alex and side characters more than Jess. She was a little bland. It was fairly predictable but light & cute for the time of year. A pick but I'm not shouting it from the rooftops of Notting Hill.

I read this for the December #sundaybuddyread

I loved this one! Given the premise and the way it starts out, I was kept wondering how it would play out. It was full of Christmassy things like a cabin, family, sledding, snow sculptures, and the tree. I will likely read this in a few years.

This was my official #bookspin December book. I didn't read my double spin this month. @TheAromaofBooks

Finale (Caraval, #3) | Stephanie Garber
post image
Mehso-so

I'm glad to be finished with the series. This very well could be an unpopular opinion, but overall the series dragged and the descriptive language meant to evoke whimsy & wonder grated my nerves. Finale has less of the weird similes, but a few still made it in. This is another book where the Dragna sisters are in a game, or aren't they? Don't believe anything, except this one time, numerous times. It felt like there were too many characters ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick this time around, which made it lose a bit of the charm of the first book. This book had both sister's POV chapters, which definitely helped. It's not awful, but I could probably gripe a lot more than compliment. A mild spoiler below. 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick How many times can these girls be that stupid and how many times can the reader expect to enjoy them getting hurt and duped?! Maybe I'm more sensitive to this being older, but it just felt like they needed legit wins, not all with the help of guys. 2y

Traci1 How terrible is it that I don't remember if I've read the first one of these? I I did, but I am not sure. 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @Traci1 It wasn't all that memorable. I was active with the BookCon app for a few years and many of them were huge YA fans. They raved about these and I'm totally underwhelmed by each one. (Probably why I own them all). I'm glad I found Litsy. 2y
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! This series has been on my TBR forever but I never seem to get around to it. Maybe I never will 😂 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick @TheAromaofBooks This very well could be a case of me being a grump. If you're interested, I can send them to you. 2y
TheAromaofBooks haha I never turn down books from my list, so you are welcome to send them my way - although I still don't know when I read them!! 😂 2y
TheSpineView I read the first book in the series. It was Ok but I never felt the urge to the the next one. 2y
Andrew65 Brilliant progress 👏👏👏 Shame this one wasn‘t better. 2y

This was my first time reading this book and I really enjoyed it. The narrator was engaging and the story moved on at a good pace. As someone who watches The Muppets version annually, it was fun to know that the "...who did NOT die" line isn't a Grover exclusive.
