#weeklyforecast, part deux ?? @Cinfhen

The beauty of being a gainfully (and gratefully!) employed grownup is that you get to be Mrs. Claus for yourself and #treatyoshelf to some new seasonal beauties. Yay! ???

I'm a HUGE fan of contemporary retellings of Pride & Prejudice and the tagged title happens to be a gender-swapping one! I also love me some YA and as stated on the cover, "Let it Snow" is now on Netflix!

Excited to dive into these!

Cinfhen Wise purchase, Mrs. Claus!!! Enjoy ❤️📚😘 (edited) 8h

Mehso-so

This is a short story that is basically a chapter that was cut from The Wrath and the Dawn. It gives insight into why Khalid goes to see Sharzad that first night. I enjoyed getting an early glimpse into Khalid's thoughts. It is clear why it was cut from the book, though - it would have given away too much too early on.

I took a break from worrying about the bad decisions #Holly is making in this book to finally start putting up #HolidayDecorations with the family!

I understand that this was cheesy. But God, did I love it! The hate to love romance was so perfect, even though I thought I would hate that aspect of the story at the beginning. Sharzard's stories gave the setting such a feeling of fantasy. I loved the magic carpet element. And Despina, Jalal, and Khalid were all fantastic characters.

Slight trigger warning for animal deaths.

I can't wait to get my hands on the second one after that ending!

Some recent reading sneaks: On the right I was reading Funny in Farsi yesterday while waiting to exchange a purchase at the mall (thus the odd angle; didn't want to annoy the grumpy people in line behind me!). On the left, I'm reading The Afterlife of Holly Chase while @Ruri_kaichou tries to fix a podcast sound problem (which ended up, of course, being my fault).

I enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would. I'm not super into Christmas or Christmas stuff, but this year I've been more into than usual. I have always liked A Christmas Carol and I like that this plays on that. The ending was also interesting. I thought I knew how it was going to end, but it threw me bit of a curve ball. I liked the actual ending more then my predicted one. I was expecting a boring disappointment of an ending.
