Stumbled across this cute novella after reading the prequel short story Snow Way in Hell. This was a zero angst romance with a bad first impression that leads to better communication and feelings. Overworked chocolatier Luca meets eager tourist Max, who's planning an anniversary surprise for his brother and best friend

75% in it was a decent cozy mystery - then there are some reveals - dissociative identity disorder, childhood sexual abuse (mother abusing sons) and all couched in typical cozy dialogue/actions/ending -so in the last 25% of the book the path from hook to resolution turns dark, poorly handled, ridiculous. (and the cat was not as magical as promised). #WinterReadathon
Earned an #Autumnbingo2022 @Ann_Reads with this though -
Make a great day - 🙂

This is a short book discussing a quick history of Denmark and the basic concepts of hygge. There wasn't anything terribly wrong with the book, except it was quite simplistic and also didn't include illustrations or photos. If you've previously read other books on the subject, you probably won't learn anything new. If you are new to the concept of hygge, I think there are some better books out there, such as The Little Book of Hygge. ⬇⬇⬇

This was the perfect first book for my December Fluff reading project! Sweet story, sweet romance, sweet setting… sweet reading! I wanted to be IN the book, attending the Christmas Festival, shopping at the market stalls, eating all the goodies, singing carols, and cheering on the characters. ❄️🎄❄️

I picked this short novel through Kindle Unlimited because I needed a holiday romance book for a bingo prompt. Otherwise, I rarely seek out romance novels to read unless the romance is secondary to a historical fiction plot. This is the second book in the Darcys' Christmas Series and the first Christmastide Darcy and Elizabeth spend together at Pemberley. There is much drama due to some unexpected visitors and some chaste romantic scenes. ⬇⬇⬇⬇

Ann_Reads One thing that could have been improved was the overuse of certain phrases or words. Also, I'm not a big fan of the bookcover art. Otherwise, for a Regency fanfiction novel this actually was pretty good, although I'm no expert. 🙂

I am glad I read this AFTER reading the rest of the “A Good Girl‘s Guide to Murder” series. It makes so much sense. Pip‘s obsession was born here. She‘s so clever. I loved this series! #110 #BookSpin #BFC22 #ReadMyRoom #SERIES2022 #NovelNovember #TBRTarot #PromptMaze #AutumnBingo2022

Five hours in I stopped to read more reviews and concluded it‘s not going to get any better 😔 Sorry, JI, I tried.

Also, now I need a new #snowysetting for #autumnbingo2022

Soubhiville First snowy setting Book that comes to mind for me is a dystopian by indigenous author novella that I loved- 2w
squirrelbrain I foolishly read to the bitter end…(I struggle to bail!) and it really doesn‘t get any better! 2w
Karisimo @squirrelbrain quitting is hard/new for me too! It feels like failure. But I‘m learning! Thanks for your confirmation! 2w
Karisimo Thanks, @Soubhiville I‘ll check it out! 2w

Some readers love romance novels so you probably already have the 'holiday romance' square dialed in for #AutumnBingo2022. For those of us who aren't fans of the genre (myself included, sorry!) here are a few suggestions for short HF romance novels + some Litsy buddy reads. Full disclosure, I haven't read any of these novels yet. If anyone has a suggestion for a short and not too sweet holiday romance book, please comment below.⬇⬇
