Shizuka is luring souls to Hell to fulfill a bargain she made to reclaim her own soul. An alien refugee run donut shop (👽) and a transgender runaway violin prodigy interrupt what should have been an easy transfer of the last soul.

A marvelous love letter to the transformative & healing powers of food and music, this captured me. Lots of POV switching, but all the characters are deliciously complicated. The ending felt a bit too neat. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

I enjoyed this fun little Christmas rom com - a small town girl finds the love she had all along. I loved her dad and best friend as characters, and was glad it wasn't all about the boys, that other relationships held even more importance than the romantic prospects. #wgwordsearch 146 words in this last section for 1,460 points. #wintergames #teamgamesleighers @StayCurious #merryandbright and #dashingdecember 4 hrs=80 pts

Refusing to participate in the race that killed her mothers, Sena is forced to steal enough money to escape her ice bound planet. Things get even more complicated when she finds herself in debt to a crime boss.

So atmospheric! I could feel the chill of the planet & Sena‘s desperation to escape. The world building was great, and Sena was a complicated and intriguing character. A bit slow to start, but really finds its pace 1/2 through. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

The unwritten books of all of humanity exist in a single library in Hell. And sometimes, those books can escape. When Claire has to chase down an escapee, she learns that there are bigger things afoot.

Goddamn. I would find my favorite read of the year in the last 2 weeks of 2021. Action packed, a complicated lead, intriguing side characters, twists and turns (only 1 I predicted), and above all, the enduring humanity of storytelling. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌗

Stanley Tucci‘s memoir of his life and the importance of food and family. Read by the author.

This was a charming listen. It really felt like sitting down for a cup of coffee with a friend. His intelligence and humor are easy to see, & he seems like a genuinely decent person. The timeline jumps around a bit & he name drops like there‘s no tomorrow. 😂 I‘ve learned I actually want a collection of nonfiction 2020 lockdown stories. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌗

I loved this book, but it wasn't centering Christmas like I had assumed. Very sweet story, and I loved that the problems in the story were very grounded and real, and the love element also kept me wondering how it would resolve. #wintergames #teamgamesleighers @StayCurious #bookspinbingo #thefestivereadathon #averymerrybingo #wintercosy #littenlisten #averymerryreadathon #adventathon #merryandbrightreadathon 8 readathons x 8 hrs x 10=640 pts 🔽

Just now getting a chance to post, but I did pretty well for my #AnyWayYouReadathon goals, considering how busy I was. I almost finished In a Holidaze before the end of it.

I did finish it yesterday and what a fun book! So glad it was the #MistletoeManiacs team book.

On the way to ice skate on the frozen lake in the woods, four kids come across a single car crash with an unconscious Santa Claus thrown from the car. His car is full of gifts. Even though it‘s billed as a mystery, it‘s not really. It‘s more about the kids saving the man and discovering why he was dressed as Santa and why his car was filled with toys. The story is so-so. The cover is gorgeous! I read it over the weekend but forgot to post it.
