In addition to putting taking the decorations off my tree yesterday - I demolished this sweet little gingerbread house. The gingerbread itself was unexpectedly soft - so it was an easier than expected to take apart. Now to eat it ☺️

I‘ve seen this book come through library returns many times and have always been obsessed with the cover, so I bought it when it appeared on a bookbub email full of kindle deals - anyway cover love and motivation finally synced up and I‘ve got less than 100 pages to go…

A Lot Like Christmas | Connie Willis

So I learned a few things. I struggle w reading short stories bc the narrative arc is short & it‘s over as soon as I‘m invested. I don‘t mind when a story doesn‘t really end or have a happy ending, so long as there‘s a good reason. I really love the way Willis writes .. or thinks about the holidays — hopeful & with eyes ahead. Short stories take me “too long” to read.

Overall, I loved this collection, even though I finished after🎄🎄!

keithmalek Maybe you just need to read longer short stories? 1h
elkeOriginal There is something special about this book for sure! 1h

It just occurred to me that I started reading all these Arthur books after finishing Here‘s To Us which has a main character named Arthur. Total coincidence right 😄 #JoyousJanuary #BookSpinBingo #WeekendReading

Andrew65 An Arthur themed read. 2d
shanaqui Ahhh, I was browsing the tag and just want to say I love how you created your bingo square. 😁 It makes a lovely photo. 2d
MatchlessMarie @shanaqui Thanks! There‘s something soothing about cutting and pasting like you‘re in kindergarten again 😄 1d

I read this book in December due to its Christmas theme. But it‘s a classic whodunnit that could be read at any time of year. An enjoyable English mystery that had me guessing until the end! 3.5/5⭐️

Winter Solstice | Rosamunde Pilcher
post image
Pickpick

It is the strange rippling effects of a tragedy that will bring five characters together in a large, neglected estate house near the Scottish fishing town of Creagan. It is in this house, on the shortest day of the year, that the lives of five people be forever changed. Winter Solstice is a novel of love, loyalty and rebirth.

The Holiday Swap | Maggie Knox

Mehso-so

Twins decide to swap lives when one recieves a head injury that ruins her sense of taste and because she's a chef on a baking competition tv show she swaps lives with her sister that runs the family bakery, what ensues is a lot of confusion for themselves, friends, romantic interests ....and the reader

Bookishgal71 I just finished this, too! 4d
LiteraryLyn @Bookishgal71 How did you like it? 3d
Bookishgal71 @LiteraryLyn It‘s definitely formulaic, but I feel like it‘s the right tone for a holiday read. Lighthearted, romantic and shallow. 2d
