After 18 months on my physical TBR "pile", appearances on 8 #BookSpinBingo lists, and a missed goal for my 2020 #CrushTheRush year-end push, this book finally gets its day in the sun!

Finally, I read the 6 books over the Christmas holiday & all but Geronimo was with my 6 year old niece on Zoom. She is embracing this shift to online visitation and doing this with her one on one allowed her to to get a little extra practice for school. Merry Fairy Christmas was garbage. A weak story and clip art pieces together from various sources. The others were all cute.

I had books 3 & 4 on my list of books to finish in 2020 because I thought the series stopped there, so imagine my surprise when a 5th book showed up in Hoopla! More adventures of DI Archie LeBlanc, a badger, in this anthropomorphic alt-history with a few steampunk tendencies. Humans are looked down on, even called doughfaces. 🤣 I love his assistant Roderick Ratzi. I'm amused when the face & hands are their designated animal, but their bodies⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick are essentially human. Makes the sexy time easier to understand I supposed. Overall, this is a fun series with a little bit of different genres.
Book 3: Bete Noir 15 points (TBR)
Book 4: Noel 25 points (Christmas)
Book 5: Force Majuere 10 points (Impulse)

These 10 stories were just OK. We go on holiday adventures with Mickey, Donald, and friends. I might have enjoyed these ones more if I grew up watching Duck Tales. Huey, Dewey, and Louie are cute as always.

❤💚❤💚 I love the vintage art and stories. It was strange that they chose to follow A Christmas Carol with a story closely based on it, but that's just a formatting issue. I will definitely read this again in the future.

These six stories were all set at Christmas or winter, but none stood out. The stories weren't very interesting and seemed a bit...disjointed? It took me just over an hour to read, so I'm not mad at the time spent, but I can't suggest these unless you're a smurfing fan of the Smurfs.

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.

When a tragedy leaves Santa feeling like a shell of a human, it's up to the elves to make him see the light...and revenge. A violent departure from the sugary sweet romans that dominate the season, this was sad but fun.
