A few more #wintergames wrap-ups. #snowangels

For the #CloakandDaggerChristmas challenge, I completed 7 prompts, though 2 of them were finished a few days after the Dec. 25 deadline. Thanks to @Ruthiella for hosting!

Thanks to @DieAReader @Andrew65 @GHABI4ROSES for the extended #rushathon readathon. I managed to read 76 books during the 4 months.

kwmg40 #BookSpinBingo was fun as usual, though I didn't finish either my #BookSpin or #DoubleSpin book. But I did get a bingo! @TheAromaofBooks

I loved doing the #CandylandReadathon and got 3 badges in addition to a couple of bingos! Thank you @Catsandbooks for hosting!

Day 3 of 2024! Total = 16.0

I have decided I am going to attempt to track the number of hours I read this year. Please bare with me as I document this reading journey.

Currently reading 4 books. Hope to finish at least one today. 🤞📖📚

GHABI4ROSES I like that Jump Start Thon! See that @Andrew65 @DieAReader ? 6mo
BookishMadHatter I keep wanting to track my reading time but my squirrel brain has me stopping randomly a million times to do big or little things then running back to my book and I always forget about the timers lol. Good luck sticking with it! 6mo

Christmas at the Cat Caf | Jessica Redland
post image

Having discovered Jessica Redland last Christmas and enjoyed her books since, I was keen to jump into this book about Tabby setting up a Cat Cafe, which seems a novel concept. Unfortunately just before opening her partner deserts her and if that isn‘t enough she also is suffering from the debilitating condition of fibromyalgia. There also seem to be people around her that want to stop the cafe opening.

Andrew65 I loved this book as much as her previous books and do enjoy the writing style of her books, and the romance style of them. I do feel it‘s good that people write about people suffering with medical conditions, and I learned a lot about fibromyalgia in this book which will make me understand it better, but I can see how this might put some people off who read books for escapism. 6mo
Andrew65 However I have to say I felt this was written very well into the book, and only added to the reading experience and the story for me.

I felt the story was very well written, and in particular the slow burn of the developing relationship in Tabby‘s life, and found myself rooting for them. I loved the main characters and was very glad to spend some of the Christmas season with them.
Andrew65 I‘m not particularly a cat person, but despite that I did love the story and the unique cat part of it, although I‘m sure I wouldn‘t spend the extra money to go to a cat cafe. Just a word of warning if anyone is a cat lover there is one part of the story that could be upsetting. However, even that I feel was very well written in the story.

Andrew65 Overall if you enjoy these romance style of books I would definitely recommend this book, and gave it five stars. There isn‘t one book by Jessica Redland that I haven‘t enjoyed very much, and look forward to reading more books by her.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

#Rushathon #OutWithTheOldInWithTheNew #readathon

First finished book of 2023 (started last night) as part of the #OUABC annual Up All Night box. Sweet, uplifting, body positive story about a wanna-be mystery writer with esteem issues who inherits a Villa/writer‘s retreat on the French Riviera from her aunt…if she finishes a novel in 6 months. It‘s a bit predictable, but enjoyable nonetheless, especially when paired with gifts to fit the story. 🎉

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 6mo

I loved this book. The sarcasm was fantastic. Imagine your Uncle dying and leaving you his evil empire; complete with spy cats and cussing dolphins plus real archenemies 🖤
