Pickpick

I have to say that Holly chase was the perfect introduction into a Holiday book character that I needed. I loved her snarky comments and commentary during the novel. The play on the classic Christmas Carol made it relatable enough because I knew that story and making the connection between the two during the story was fun to see in what ways it would come together. I think this is a classic book that could hold up to multiple re-reads even.

Book read during the 3rd week of HP Magical Winter Readathon-prompt=stories with ghosts. Interesting this story.This is a modern retelling of Christmas Carol. At the beginning it was a meh for me, too mush details about the fashion world, but in the middle it was ok and the end was cute quite unexpected to me. In general was an ok cute Christmas retelling. Go blind, you already know the original story.3.4⭐️This book was my company in the hospital.

The last episode of a short series was my favourite. Ebenezer finally knows meaning of the Christmas life and love. It was amazing and great series to watch. I also liked that was a little scary. This version is not for children.
5⭐/5

Littlewolf1 When I went into reading this book I wasn‘t really thinking that I would be so impacted by the story. At the end, I was bawling my eyes out. It was really good and I truly enjoyed it. 1mo

Littlewolf1 I feel like this was the greatest turning point in the story. When we first hear the original story, Ebeneezer goes through with the three spirits and his desire is to change is evident and he has given that chance. However, in this retelling, we learned that he doesn‘t have much time left and then his remorse is not necessarily for others. It is the sacrifice that Marley that finally gives Ebenezer that Second chance at life and his soul. 1mo
megnews To each his own regarding religion, but for me, in this, I see a Christ figure willing to sacrifice on someone else‘s behalf so that their life can be better. 1mo
sblbooks @Littlewolf1 I agree. You bring up a good point that the remorse that Scrooge showed may not have been for others. 1mo
sblbooks @megnews Me too! The first thing I thought was this reminds of the crucifixion and the verse John 3:16 1mo
Readswithcoffee Agreed! 1mo

Littlewolf1 I could be wrong, because I‘ve been on before, but my personal thought on this is that don‘t be ignorant about all you have and stop wanting for what you don‘t need. 1mo
megnews While stacking away treasure, he invested in ignorance of the true meaning of life and want for anything that could truly fulfill. 1mo
sblbooks We all should strive to influence those around us for good. To be a good citizen, we must care for others. Marley and Scrooge ignored this responsibility for most of their lives. It's a warning to us, not to do the same. 1mo
EH2018 In his interactions with others he preyed on the ignorance of others and their desire for things, and used this to build his life. Instead of focusing on the good and trying to help and influence others positively. 1mo
sblbooks @EH2018 exactly! 1mo

Littlewolf1 Don‘t let your right hand know what your left hand is doing. You don‘t have to be prideful about the care and compassion you show for the world. It‘s not about you, it‘s about others. 1mo
megnews I absolutely love it and think this is what life is all about. Sometimes it is not about the grand gesture but the small things we can do to make someone else‘s life better, perhaps they never even know it. 1mo
sblbooks I loved this quote! A great reminder that it's not about getting the credit. Like @Littlewolf1 said, It about others! Yes! @megnews I agree, it's the little things mean the most some times. 1mo

EH2018 I really liked this quote also! Its about human purpose, and how we all have one. Everything we do, even if not in our interactions with people, but any act we engage in can have an affect on others, it all matters. 1mo
Readswithcoffee And not only do we have those opportunities in life, but unknown to us, others are removing obstacles in our path. It would be a kinder world if we all looked for ways to make others‘ lives easier or at least more pleasant. 1mo
sblbooks @Readswithcoffee Yes, we should try to do this on a regular basis. 1mo

Littlewolf1 Because in the end, Marley forgave and asked for forgiveness. In the end, Marley‘s concern was not for himself the another. 1mo
megnews He may not have been able to redeem himself but he was given the opportunity to redeem another and in some way that redeemed him because it showed he cared about his fellow humanity and still hoped to be able to make a difference. 1mo
EH2018 Agreed, he saw the error of his ways, and tried to help scrooge when he realized that he was wrong. 1mo

shellleigh33 I believe that Marley realized his mistakes at the end when it was to late for him but he did not want the same ending for the one acquaintance (Scrooge) he had if he could help it. I felt really sorry for how he had made this man and wanted to make a difference in his life 1mo
Readswithcoffee I think Marley‘s ability to finally show compassion to another person is a type of redemption for him. 1mo
