I started this back in December because I want in the holiday spirit and wanted a Christmas read. But my reading slump and I stopped listening to the audiobook.

Anyways, I really enjoyed this. I didn't find it as funny as the original A Christmas Carol but it's an entertaining inspired by story. I really enjoyed the characters, especially Holly even though she was suppose to be a brat. I felt for her and was rooting for her throughout.

Newcastle Upon Tyne in the far north of England is neither that exciting nor beautiful, but it does have this lovely #Waterstones. We went on a walk along the river amidst its many bridges, visited the Cathedral and climbed the many steps of the small castle.

I started this a few weeks ago but it was a bit frustrating so I dropped it for a couple other books. I had a couple hours left on it and figured “what the heck, let‘s bash it out for the finished total.” Honestly, this book is a very HARD pass. It‘s advertisement of “cozy mystery” is anything but that. With lots of abbreviated triggers (SA, R, DV, to name a few) this really fell short of coziness. A modern spin on Orient Express. 2 ⭐️

Fresh out of the oven, and it smells amazing: Auf den Kopf von Apfelkuchen. Upside down apple cake.

I tweaked the recipe a little, using less sugar, a tad bit more cinnamon, and switched to Granny Smith apples. Recipe is from the same baker who created the upside down rhubarb cake that we made the other week.

Recipe here: http://blueridgebaker.blogspot.com/2009/11/apple-upside-down-cake.html?m=1

A charming re-imagining of how Dickens was inspired to create his classic Christmas story 🎄

He had no further intercourse with Spirits, but lived upon the Total Abstinence Principle, ever afterwards; and it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless Us, Every One!

Mehso-so

Compared to the multitude of Tessa's books that I absolutely adore, this was just "meh". The concept was cute, but some of the dynamics were bizarre and hard to swallow (and I say that as someone who is HERE for the implausible Hallmark romance). But it was still cute... I guess. Strangely, I likely would have enjoyed it more had it been a new-to-me author. Going in with the high bar that Tessa sets herself left me disappointed in comparison ?
