Last night I watched Home Alone, and today I watched a Lifetime Christmas movie, 1 episode of The Office and 4 episodes of Friends.

I‘m fairly new to cozy mysteries and I‘ve not read any others in this series, but I enjoyed it! I really liked Maggie, the MC. I listened to the audiobook and the narrator did a great job with the accents!

This book isn‘t in the database, but it‘s a really cute novella. Leah loves all the trappings of Christmas and jumps at the chance to spend the holiday with her boyfriend‘s family. She hopes it‘ll be the perfect Christmas, but the only problem is that she hasn‘t told him she‘s Jewish.

I went into this with an idea of what it would be like, but it turned out to be a whole other kind of story. But it was a good story! In this case, I didn‘t mind being surprised! Not a typical love story, but more about the love between two best friends.

This is about Bo, a teen who believes he can travel through time and attends a special academy for teens with mental illness, and his sister, Phoebe, and how Bo‘s mental illness affects their family. After his girlfriend Sofia‘s death, Bo starts a downward spiral and believes he can save her with his “power.” It could have been shorter, and TBH, I still don‘t know what‘s true and what isn‘t!

Clwojick I know the feeling! I have an embarrassingly large collection on my kindle too (361 of which are in my Christmas folder). I also have a bunch of Christmas chirp audiobooks, and some on NetGalley… so I‘m doing the same thing! They‘re all on my “list” and I‘ll just pick from there. 😜 2w
Emilymdxn Wow @Clwojick that‘s so many! I thought my Christmas books kindle collection was big at about 40. Do you mind me asking how many books you have on kindle overall? 2w
Clwojick @Emilymdxn okay, so I only go on like once a year to delete the ones I‘ve read, so I‘m not sure how many of these are finished already, but I currently have 2126 on kindle, 39 audiobooks on NetGalley, and 208 audiobooks on Chirp🙈 is it any wonder my phone is out of space? I‘ll need to upgrade to the 256GB iPhone next time lol. (edited) 2w

Rom-coms are generally cute and predictable, and this one is no different, but I can appreciate a MC so enamored with Keanu Reeves that she goes on a cross-country trip to try to meet him. Believe me, I would do the same if I could! 😂
