#WishesandBlessings

I thought of this book for the #Angels prompt that I read for a book tour back in 2014. I said “A book to sink deeply into if you like folklore, religion, cultural heritage and family dramas.” Also worth sinking into, a plate of Ruth Reichl‘s Matzo Brei that I made to accompany the book.
A link to my review & recipe is below.

@AmyG I mailed out (most) of your #wintersolsticeswap box yesterday at lunch. It‘s supposed to arrive Tuesday 12/7. I‘m waiting on 2 items that were delayed & now both show they are arriving Tuesday, so I‘ll mail them out as soon as they get to me & keep my fingers crossed that you have everything by the 18th.🤞🏼🙏🏼🍀😅

I also seem to be incapable of taking a picture of the box you sent me & posting it but as I mentioned, I do have it! 🤗

AmyG How lovely. Thank you so much, Deb. Hahaha…I trust you have my box. 12h

Hopefully it will be on time too but I don‘t want to take the risk with everything else. 3d

Finished for my virtual foodie book club & enjoyed it. It‘s fun & food-filled as a chef is taken captive by a female pirate captain & must cook her a gourmet dinner each Sunday to stay alive. He gets quite creative with limited provisions & conditions on the ship. My bookish dish is this Potato, Cod, Garbanzo Bean & Saffron Stew, combining various ingredients from the book.

Thanks to @MeganAnn for including a copy in my #BWS box last month.🤗

My December #TBR—mostly all holiday reads for #WinterGames #TeamGameSleighers although I will likely have a few others sneak in & since I‘m a moody reader a bunch of these could be switched out for others. I have been buying up cheap holiday e-books & gathering free audiobooks for #LittenListen too. This is more holiday reads than my sometimes grinchy side usually reads for the season but it should be fun. ❄️🎄❄️

BethM I‘m a mood reader too which is why tbr lists are hard for me! 5d

I haven‘t done much #audiosouping lately as I‘ve been in a bit of a cooking/blogging funk, but today I‘m working on a chowdery fish & potato soup for my foodie book club.

Got this audiobook on the cheap as Molly Harper usually makes me laugh. This novella (from another collection but made as a separate Audible Original) was cute & fun-although not that funny. Amanda Ronconi did her usual great narration & it was a fun little standalone listen.

JamieArc How very Michigan of a title 😂 6d

A solid pick for me, but more a mother-daughter, immigrant experience & coming of age story than the mystery it gets tagged as. Although Margot investigates her mother‘s death, it focuses more on Mina‘s life, her secrets & the divide between an immigrant parent & her American-born daughter. I enjoyed reading it with the #sundaybuddyread group because of the discussions & the descriptions of LA, Korea Town & the delicious food brought it to life.

Not bookish (I chose the tagged book for its title) but today‘s #lantern prompt made me think of the Shinnyo Lantern Floating ceremony that happens each year (except the past 2 COVID years) in Honolulu. Thousands of people gather on Memorial Day & write a message to loved ones they‘ve lost (family, friends, pets) on candle-lit wood & rice paper lanterns, floated out in the water as the night falls. It‘s gorgeous & moving to see.

DebinHawaii P.S. The lanterns are environmentally friendly & are later gathered up so they don‘t impact the ocean & environment. 💙 6d

I reviewed this book of #poetry last week on my blog for a book tour. I‘ve read several of the author‘s other book (short stories & novels) & really enjoyed savoring this collection of 90-ish poems about womanhood, nature, longing & loss. The artwork by Lydia Selk, an analog artist from the Pacific Northwest, matched the vibe of the poems. I am not a critical reviewer of poetry quality—I just know what I like & many of these poems spoke to me.🌙🧡

The 4th book in the Sonoma Witches paranormal mystery series. I read the 1st during #scarathlon & since they are quick e-book reads & enjoyable, I‘ve quickly worked my way through the series. This one is set during Winter Solstice & lots of witches are in Silverpool trying to raise demons. There‘s a couple of murders & Alma works with her former Protectorate partner to solve them. I like Alma coming into her powers & the various side characters.👍

Book 2 in the Hollows series, a #BlameItOnLitsy & mainly blame it on @MeganAnn series. In this one, someone is murdering Ley Line Witches in horrible ways & Rachel consults with the FIB before getting kicked off the case & taking a run from Trent. I‘m enjoying learning about the characters‘ backgrounds although I keep getting mad at Rachel for some of her choices.😱My library has the next few e-books available so I‘m going to try & work them in.

MeganAnn Yay! ✨❤️🎉 Rachel does make stupid choices… especially in the first few books. But somehow I still love her even when she does dumb stuff 😆🤷‍♀️ And I love Ivy and Jenks even more every time they help bail her out or help her realize why she‘s doing these stupid things. 3w

Finished this week for a book tour review, it leans a bit more younger YA than I typically go for. Tahira Janmohammad is 17 & driven not to just be a fashion designer but to be THE BEST—her grand plan is helped & supported by her parents. When her summer internship with an up & coming designer falls through, her mother hatches a plan to send her from Toronto to her aunt‘s to help rebrand the clothing store she bought in the small country town ⬇️

DebinHawaii … Bakewell, Ontario is flower obsessed & soon Tahira is entering a floral design contest in hopes of meeting a famous fashion designer judge. Tahira is likable & there are some positive messages about diversity, finding your passion & standing up for yourself & others.
