Great thriller! Twisty and dark and kept me guessing-all the best things in a mystery! Thanks to @TheBookKeepers for this book as part of my #wintersolstice gift.

TheBookKeepers Glad you loved it! 8mo

I was underwhelmed. There was a lot of repetition, it was poorly edited (so many typos and errors), and the prose was dry. It felt like a bad textbook. Bailey wasn‘t impressed either.

This book is all about the darker parts of this dark time of the year. You thought Halloween (Samhain) was dark? Wait until you read these tales! This is one of my favorite books. Meet Frau Perchta and many more.

Happy Holidays and Merry Everything! 🎄🍄

Oh @AmyG I LOVE my #wintersolsticeswap box!😍 First off, it was such a treat to come home to after sitting in the emergency vet parking lot most of the day. 😬 I love ALL of the books & the mix of non-fiction, fiction & even a #sundaybuddyread title! The Moonology oracle cards are gorgeous & fascinating, (I know what I‘ll be doing tonight!), the tumbler is fun, the candle smells amazing & I love the self-care tin with the little goodies & the ⬇️

DebinHawaii …Libra crystals. The chocolate is always welcome. The Cadbury & Whitman‘s Sampler remind me of my mom. 💜 The pretty notepad & snowflake cookie cutter are great too. And I just saw the tea & cocoa in the tumbler too. You spoiled me! Thank you so much & thank you @Chrissyreadit & @sprainedbrain for fabulous #WSS hosting & the extra kindness & grace needed today. A blessed solstice & happy holidays to you all! 💙💙💙 10mo
DebinHawaii @AmyG And Max is doing much better & will be celebrating solstice on some good drugs. 🐱💙🙀 10mo

@sprainedbrain I opened my #wintersolsticeswap package. I looooooove it. I‘ll post a pic later. I had a teen‘s bday this morning & a family Christmas party today so I had to jet out of my house before I could remember to grab a photo. @Chrissyreadit

sprainedbrain I opened mine this afternoon and then got a wee bit distracted, but I‘m going to post now! ❤️ 10mo
Chrissyreadit You have had a busy day!! 10mo

A closer look at a few of the amazing gifts from @MeganAnn as well as a peak at her beautiful wrapping. She made the star ornament! And the amethyst is lovely. Black Santa approves. @Chrissyreadit @sprainedbrain #WinterSolsticeSwap #WSS

MeganAnn Yay! They look so lovely on your tree and I‘m glad I could meet Black Santa‘s approval! 😆🎅🏿❤️ Can‘t remember if I included this in the card, but make sure to remove the dried plant material from the candle before burning so it doesn‘t catch fire. Or you can place it on top of a candle warmer/ wax melt if you have one and warm it from the bottom. The crystal will come out when it‘s melted down far enough for you to use also! 10mo
KatieDid927 @MeganAnn Will do, thank you!! 10mo
kspenmoll Such gorgeous ornaments!!! 10mo
TheBookHippie Love it all!!! 10mo
sprainedbrain Omg such gorgeous gifts! I think this swap has had some of the coolest ornaments. ❤️ 10mo
