Let the #ornamenthunt begin!

1. Ornament I wish were life-sized - Captain America (no explanation needed 😂)
2. Ornament that has a character on it
3. Ornament with a picture frame on it (our dog Bailey, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2015 😭)
4. Ornament that sparkles
5. Ornament that represents sports
6. Ornament that is bookish (my great friend @MallenNC gave this to me last year 😊)

🤍 I have a collection of mostly children‘s Christmas books that I get out each year and keep in a big basket. I love sitting and rereading them all!
⛄️ This is a tough one! It would have to be the Mary Engelbreit version of The Night Before Christmas.
🤍 Today I am grateful for meditation, which constantly surprises me.

Also, that book in the photo reminds me of Snowy Day, which is wonderful!


Eggs #1 - me too!! Thanks for playing ❄️☃️ and # 2 - I love that one too! (edited) 3d
DarkMina Thanks for the tag! I need to think about number 2 and then I will post mine. Nothing is coming to mind at the moment. 🤔 3d

Safety deposit box…interesting the history was there?

It‘s interesting Margot‘s take on Koreans vs Korean American. It‘s differences are stark. Why if we are the land of everyone do we not allow it to be so? Interesting thoughts for what is American this week.
Do you ever ponder it?

Sargar114 This quote feels quite fitting for these times and can see the application in the story. I love that Margot has all this information about her family to move forward with. 5d
AmyG Lincoln is correct. We are at war with ourselves. White supremacy is our #1 probem. I will never understand those people that view others as “alien” or below them. We are all human. No one is more entitled than another. 😔 (edited) 5d
TheBookHippie @AmyG I so agree. 5d

Karisa @AmyG Reminds me of the book Caste and what has been shown by the last presidency. It‘s all about protecting the perception of pecking order and power. So many contradictions in what is accepted when so much really comes down to race in this country. Having to navigate it like Mina on her own would be very difficult. Her story illustrates the “each for themselves” mentality. Mrs. Baek was there but only to a certain point 5d
AmyG @Karisa I have Caste on my TBR. And it‘s always about power. Or money. 5d
DebinHawaii @Karisa @AmyG I swear I will read Caste this year. I have the book. And yes, it‘s that hunger for power & money that will continue to ruin it. (edited) 5d

1. I just want to spend more time reading and less time playing games.
2. Dressing/Stuffing. It‘s just another form of bread and I love bread (and cookies)!

#Two4Tuesday @TheSpineView

Bklover 1. Me too. Good luck!! We‘ll both try! 1w
Aims42 Yesssssssss to ‘less games, more reading‘ 🙄👏🏻 No, I don‘t want to play Scattergories for the 274th time, I‘d rather read my book that is getting realllllly good 👍🏻 And yes to stuffing, it checks all the boxes! 1w
TheSpineView Good luck on #1. Thanks for playing and happy Thanksgiving 1w

A fantastic #newyearwhodis list from @JackOBotts 🎉😍 I‘ve already read #1&3 - loved both. The tagged book is on my #newyearwhodis2022 list also & I read it last January because it was on @BarbaraJean ‘s list!

The top 3 pictured are already on my TBR list so I will definitely read those. I‘ve been meaning to read more Matt Haig books for years. I‘ve also been meaning to try Colson Whitehead. There is No Good Card looks fascinating & new to me ⬇️

BarbaraJean Ooooh, this looks like a great list! I‘m going to be stalking so many people‘s lists today!! 2w
MeganAnn The Cause of Freedom looks like it may be a difficult but important read and is also one I hadn‘t heard of previously. I‘m hoping to get to it as well at some point during 2022 if not in January - mostly depending on my mood and if I can mentally fit both that and Stamped in the same month. The Whispering Dead looks like a fun supernatural mystery type book I hadn‘t seen before and if time allows I hope to read that as well. 2w
MeganAnn Thanks @monalyisha for such an excellent match! You are a rockstar at matching up lists ✨🎉😍😘 (edited) 2w

MeganAnn @BarbaraJean right?! Me too! 2w
monalyisha You‘re so welcome! 🥰 2w
MeganAnn @Cinfhen I‘m very excited for that one! I had stacked it on litsy from someone‘s post (can‘t remember whose) a long time ago and then forgot about it. I‘m so glad @JackOBotts list has brought it back to my attention! 2w
monalyisha I actually didn't much like We Ride Upon Sticks. But it showed up on a lot of lists! I'm weirdly (maliciously? I hope not! 😅) looking forward to reading your review & seeing what camp you fall into. 2w
monalyisha I bought the Matt Haig for my MIL this Christmas. I hope it's great for your & for her sake! ;) My favorite of his is The Humans (which you may know...was that on your #FreakyFriday list? It feels like so long ago now). 2w
MeganAnn @monalyisha @Cinfhen We Ride Upon Sticks is on my TBR because of a lot of great reviews on Litsy… now I‘m curious on which camp I‘ll fall into as well! 2w
MeganAnn @monalyisha I haven‘t read The Humans, but I may have had The Radleys on my #freakyfriday list? I can‘t remember anymore, but that‘s the one of his I loved and keeps me thinking I really should read more of his stuff. I also loved his middle Christmas series starting with The Boy Who Saved Christmas. 2w
monalyisha Oh, I‘ve been meaning to check out that MG series! Maybe this December? 🤷‍♀️ 2w
monalyisha I bet you‘ll like We Ride Upon Sticks. I was probably just in a funk. 🙈 Still! The intrigue! 2w
MeganAnn @monalyisha it‘s a perfect quick December read! I saw Netflix recently released a movie based on the first book as well which is actually A Boy Called Christmas (my bad🤷‍♀️). Book 2 is The Girl Who Saved Christmas so I meshed them together in my head. 😆🤦🏻‍♀️ 2w
monalyisha I knew exactly what you meant! 😉 2w
monalyisha Ahem. I just stumbled upon my review of We Ride Upon Sticks & apparently I gave it 4 out of 5 stars. 😅 I remember being annoyed about a few things. It‘s funny that that‘s the memory/mood that persisted when I clearly really enjoyed so many other aspects. I wrote a fairly detailed review. 😆 My memory is so embarrassing. 🙈 2w
MeganAnn @monalyisha I just went back and found your review and other posts… love it! It is weird how sometimes the only thing I remember about reading a particular book is my mood or whatever was going on in life completely unrelated to the actual book.🤷‍♀️ One of the many reasons I reread so many of them. 2w
monalyisha Definitely eager(er) to discuss now that my mind is refreshed. 😉 2w
JackOBotts @MeganAnn - Yay! 🥳 I loved seeing the overlap on our lists and am so excited to plan a bit today! It‘s going to be tricky to wait till January! 😂 I can‘t wait to see your thoughts on these ready! I hope they don‘t disappoint!!!! 2w
