I'm in a bit of a funk this morning, but it's the first day of the #WinterGames! So I'm going to try to shake off the funk with some #WinterCosy reading. I've got my fuzzy socks and PJs on, a cup of coffee in one of my favorite mugs, a cosy book to read, and my Smokey cat even just jumped up here to snuggle with me.

Before I completely immerse myself in holiday reads forward #WinterGames, I have a few books I didn't get to finish this month that I'd like to complete. I think the #20in4 readathon will be great motivation. My goal is to read at least 20 hours during this readathon.

I was super excited to see that #BOTM was already up today! I was just looking at my library and Libby for Gwen and Art Are Not in Love the other day (and neither have it), so that was a pleasant surprise. And The Kingdom of Sweets looks like a good edition to my #WinterGames TBR.

1) I love dressing in fuzzy, warm clothes and snuggling under a cozy blanket with a hot beverage and reading, especially if snow is falling outside.
2) My close friends and family gather together for a laid back potluck and games Christmas Eve celebration. I also love watching cheesy rom-coms with my brother. We watch a bunch every year.
3) Hot chocolate and soups👇

Nelnjali 4) Being given a constant reminder/reason to celebrate the season. It can be really easy to get stuck in a rut and have it quickly pass me by.
5) Fantasy

Anyone else impatiently waiting for December and the start of #WinterGames? I was fine before Thanksgiving, but now I'm ready to get going! I'm not prepared for anything else holiday related, but I've got my Winter Game plans ready. 😆

Nelnjali @Laughterhp Me too! I was determined to be more organized this year, but now I just want to read my holiday books! 😆 3mo

I realized I spoke too soon for my #BookSpin list. I needed it to be a bit more free to leave opportunities for some books I'm waiting on to come in and to continue my shelf cleanup (i.e. reading books I already own to decide whether to keep it trade in). So this is my list. My #WinterGames TBR list also got longer because I realized I forgot some. 😆

Nelnjali @willaful Yep! Fantasy is my favorite genre, but I'm a sucker for a cheesy romance (rom-coms are my favorite!), especially around Christmas. I get excited every year to see what the new Netflix Christmas romance movies will be! 3mo

I am so excited to finally have my hands on this book. My local bookstore called last week to tell me it was in, but I reminded them that it wasn't due out until yesterday. And then it was raining too hard to make the walk up yesterday. But after a brisk, drizzly walk, I have it and some coffee from my local coffee shop, all ready for the holiday weekend. (No Black Friday shopping for me. I'm going to hide inside with a book.)

My Pathfinder character is a Harrower and I need access to my cards during the game, so I spent some time watching the Hocus Pocus movies and making a wrap for them that turns into a wonderful mat. I finished up my sewing on the porch while chatting with my fellow players in the beautiful fall weather we are having.

For the #AutumnPlease! photo challenge today, I went in a little different direction. When thinking about #CandleFlame, I thought of the song "Candle in the Wind," and tonight I remembered I have the perfect image for that. I had the pleasure of seeing Elton John on his last tour and snapped this image of him.

Camp Damascus | Chuck Tingle

Pickpick

4.5⭐ I was pleasantly surprised by this audiobook. I have heard of Chuck Tingle because of his ridiculous erotica, but I've never actually read more than small passages. I was intrigued when I learned of his foray into horror, and I was not disappointed. (cont'd.)

Nelnjali This was a thoroughly frightening and dark book creating literal horror around the horrific practice of “conversion therapy.“ The book is not inherently funny; in fact, much of it is horrific, but it has a similar tone to dark comedy movies in the sense that it has a clear message and portrays it through what would be campy horror if it wasn't so well written and, at times, disturbing. (cont'd.)
