@LeeRHarry sent me this one as part of our #aussiesecretsanta book exchange. I am making a start on it just as school resumes, in the hope that it will provide the escape I‘ll appreciate in my downtime. #currentlyreading

LeeRHarry Yay! Enjoy! 😊 8mo

Bk16 of December & #WinterGames2021 is done. This was my #AussieSecretSanta gift from @thegirlwiththelibrarybag & the 2nd in the Magpie Society duology. I have to say, I was a little bit underwhelmed. While the ending was a bit of a surprise, the writing itself felt rushed. Sorry Sharni! Maybe it was just me? Still an entertaining read. #AVeryMerryBingo #AVeryMerryReadathon #WinterCosy #WrapItUpReadathon #ClearUrShit #MistletoeManiacs 2,871pts👇

After a brilliant family celebration with all our nearest & dearest, this Boxing Day evening I‘m snuggled up on my in-laws back deck with my #AussieSecretSanta book trying to dodge my nieces & nephews and get some peace & quiet! It‘s just started raining so it‘s finally cooled down enough thank god. Happy Holidays everyone🎉❤️💚❤️💚

Thank you so much for my parcel of goodies. It cheered me up when I remembered and opened it last night.
I have had a very long week with my partner being rushed to hospital. He has autoimmune aortitis, which has caused an abdominal aortic aneurysm. He has had so many MRIs and PET scans to diagnose his pain that I haven‘t been able to hug him because of his radioactivity.
So, thank you @Teresereading it is a lovely gift.

Wow I got so spoilt by my #aussiesecretsanta @Lizpixie ❤️
Thank you Liz my gifts are wonderful.
I love the special edition of Pride and Prejudice, and I have not read the new Amor Towles..it‘s been on my list though!! Anna Downes is new to me but sounds great!
The book cover is brilliant! Perfect for taking a book to work on night duty👍🏼
So glad to be part of this swap @thegirlwiththelibrarybag
Merry Christmas everyone🎅❤️🌲📚

thegirlwiththelibrarybag I love that vegetables have been incorporated onto the bookmark! 9mo
Lizpixie I‘m so happy you like everything! The bookstore recommended the Anna Downes so let me know if it‘s any good. I loved Amor Towles first book & heard great things about this one too & the Pride & Prejudice hopefully will kickstart your Word Cloud Editions collection, I have tons. The MIL will be stoked you like the cover too. Merry Xmas! @thegirlwiththelibrarybag I had to incorporate veggies in there somewhere🌽🥦🍅🥔 9mo
Freespirit Oh the vegetable bookmark is fabulous @Lizpixie ❤️🌽 9mo
Lizpixie Thank you lovely! Have a wonderful Xmas & enjoy your books😘❤️ 9mo

Thank you @LeeRHarry for my #aussiesecretsanta goodies! Hoffman is an author I‘ve had on my radar 🤗. Can‘t wait to indulge in the chocolate (dark choc is my favourite) & I‘ve already used the hand cream, which really does smell like lemon sorbet 🍋. I‘m enjoying seeing all your posts as you open your packages fellow Aussies @Lizpixie @Flingogal @CarolynM @Jhullie @Cathy_J @Teresereading @Freespirit @LapReader
