🎄Christmas Haul Part One with a distinct Bloomsbury theme. I recently bought an annotated Mrs. Dalloway so have some Woolf 2022 reading goals.

Has anyone read either of these? I‘d love to hear your thoughts/reviews on them.

Librarybelle Square Haunting is on my to read list…they both look so good! 9mo
Jess_Read_This @Librarybelle I thought so too! I love a good below stairs kind of book, so am very intrigued on the Woolf one. And Square Haunting just sounds fascinating to me. 9mo

Thanks, ladies, for the tags! @Eggs @EadieB
1. I‘ll let Amy Grant say it for me, even if all those lit candles make me nervous.
2. Not really. Drivers in this area don‘t do well with snow. If I were somewhere that handles it better, I‘d probably feel otherwise.

EadieB You‘re welcome! Thanks for playing! 10mo
TheSpineView Thanks for playing and happy holidays! 10mo

Looking for a cute&fluffy Christmas romance? You may enjoy this! I liked the inn setting, and a lot of the scenes, but this had all the features I hate about romances. My main gripe was gender expectations. For example: a discussion about how you get boys legos but all girls like makeup; the narrator reflecting on how she gave up being goth to be feminine for a boy, and again to be feminine for adulthood. #LittenListenBingo #ChristmasBooks

PuddleJumper It is rife in the genre and it's so frustrating and disappointing. Sometimes feels like it's ten/twenty years out of date 10mo
Kenyazero @PuddleJumper It‘s super frustrating! Can‘t we just have fluffy wonderful stories without all that unnecessary cultural baggage? It‘s why I usually don‘t listen to romance, but this was a bonus borrow on Hoopla 10mo

Because when one is in a Coles bookstore because the packages your ordered with rush delivery don‘t come (an extra $20 btw) and you see one that you plan on getting from library and there is no way you‘ll get before the end of December. #bookmail #christmasbooks

Even though Christmas is over I enjoyed listening to these stories. I‘ve finished 8 of them so far (200 points). They include fave stories by Charles Dickens and Hans Christian Andersen. Some I‘m familiar with, but listening to them imparts different emphasis that I liked very much. #wintergames #merryreaders @Clwojick

This was my first Christmasy book I read at the end of November. And with there not really being any proper Christmas markets around, this was a lovely reminder of them. Let's face it German Christmas markets are really fab. I suppose it was kind of obvious how it would end, but it was a fun and festive read! #christmasbooks

shortsarahrose I love German Christmas markets. One of my favorite travel experiences. 2y
emmaturi Yes they are really fanastic! @shortsarahrose 2y
