I meant to post my #January TBR last week & life was completely out of control. I feel a bit silly posting it now as it‘s the 9th & I have made only small inroads on some of these. The tagged book is part of my #NewYearWhoDis list from @Chrissyreadit & I just started it & plan to finish. 🤗There are some buddy reads in here that may or may not happen although the #sundaybuddyread Simone St. James pick I‘m tracking on, i‘m already behind on my ⬇️

DebinHawaii #PemberLittens books & just 2 chapters completed in Wuthering Heights on Serial Reader & already remembering how much I dislike this book! 🤬 I have a book tour review of Artist Colony at the end of the month + a couple of #ARC commitments & my virtual foodie bookclub selection (Midnight 🐔), the rest are library books that came in, an audiobook & my #jolabokaflod book from @MidnightBookGirl that I started & want to finish. Let‘s see what happens! 6mo

sprainedbrain I‘m struggling with WH this time too! 😂 6mo
ravenlee I‘m struggling some with WH, too. I don‘t remember much (it‘s been close to 20 years since I read it), but I remember disliking it. I‘m trying to give it a fair shake now, but I think there‘s going to be some hate-reading eventually. 😆 6mo
DebinHawaii @Chrissyreadit I am loving THITCS so far even if I am only about 25% into it! 🤗 6mo

We always thinks we know best. We think our view of a story is the only view. This book is another life changer and a book I read over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, it was part of my #jolabokaflod haul and it was amazing
It was beautiful breathtaking lyrical and a reality check all in one. This book should be required reading starting in middle school.

🎄🎄🎄 Look what arrived!!! 🎄🎄🎄
@kaysworld1 @MaleficentBookDragon

The missing #jolabokaflod package! I started an enquiry at the German Post.
It looks like they delivered it already on December 17 - but to someone different under another address who only now found the time to put it in my mailbox, where I found it yesterday evening...😀

Yuki_Onna Could DHL/German Post PLEASE stop messing up big time?! I feel bad to participate in #swaps #LitsySwaps already because there's a delivery problem with them every so often. My swap matches do everything right and early and in time - and DHL drops the packages SOMEWHERE without notifying me. 🤬
Which makes everyone feel ... 😣, especially my matches and the swap organizers, who should feel good, not the opposite...
kaysworld1 @Yuki_Onna It's ok hun I'm glad you got it now xx 6mo
Yuki_Onna Thank you soo much, dear Kay! 🤍 I love my parcel! Can't wait to dive into the book and - white chocolate? Yuuumm!!! 😊 @kaysworld1 6mo
MaleficentBookDragon Wow. I am just happy it FINALLY made it to you. YAY@! 6mo

@ReadingRachael Look what came 😍😍😍

Thank you so much for these thoughtful goodies! I love mint chocolate so much and those chocolates with the sweaters on them are almost too pretty to open! I can't wait to dig into that book. I almost spent some Christmas money on that but I'm glad I held off 😊 And SO beautifully wrapped. Best way to end the year! I love it 😘😘😘

#jolabokaflod @MaleficentBookDragon

MaleficentBookDragon Yay!!!❤️❤️❤️ 6mo
ReadingRachael Yay!! I‘m so happy to hear that they finally arrived. I‘m glad you held off on the book too! I hope enjoy it 😊. All the best in the new year to you and family as well! ❤️❤️ 6mo

I was so in the mood for a gothic thriller and this hit the spot. It was a bit slow and the ending rather abrupt but some spooky woods at night made for a good story!
Thank you again @jhod for this #jolabokaflod book!

Mrs_B @carlthecattt hope this helps! 6mo
jhod 👏👏👏 good stuff! 6mo
carlthecattt Thank you! I will be reading this one for sure! :) 6mo

Perfect for 12-3AM when I needed a fast HEA read to get over worry about clients (clearly my boundaries were not as strong as usual) enemies to lovers- sort of kind of reminded me of Pride Of The Peacock, but not gothic, no mystery and mostly likable characters. Thanks @monalyisha for supplying the escape via #jolabokaflod.

monalyisha I fully support literary escapism. 💯 6mo

I‘m late posting this because we were out of town for the holidays and when we came home Sunday there were a bajillion packages waiting for us 🥴🥴 and pregnancy brain is in full swing because I completely forgot to even look at who sent me my #jolabokaflod gift before I threw away the packaging 😩😩😩 I‘m so so sorry but THANK YOU THANK YOU for my gifts. @MaleficentBookDragon are you able to tag who had me if it‘s not too much trouble?

My #jolabokaflod swap was waiting for me after my trip ☺️🎄. Thank you so much for the chocolate cherries and almonds! They look so good! So excited to read this book!

Mommamanzi @MaleficentBookDragon is such a cool human, so glad you got to “meet” her ash! 6mo
Ahw06 @Mommamanzi me too ☺️ 6mo
MaleficentBookDragon @Mommamanzi Ahhh. You are so sweet! Thank you! 6mo
MaleficentBookDragon The chocolate almonds are from a local candy company from where I grew up and the cherries are my #manpanion's favorites so I hope you like them. BTW, the book looks really fun, I may have to get it for myself for next year. 6mo
Ahw06 @MaleficentBookDragon they look amazing!! Those chocolate cherries are my fav too! I‘ll let you know how it is ☺️ I love Christina Lauren books! 6mo
