I'm all about coziness and comfort this cold and snowy November. So, it seemed like the perfect time to read about the concept of hygge and how fundamental it is to Danish living. From cooking, to fashion, to interior design, this book covers it all. Add in some scientific studies and how-tos to get your hygge on, and this book makes for a fun overview. Now, I'm off to curl up under a blanket with a good book, a warm beverage, and some candles.
I finished this one today and it was only so-so. The writing wasn‘t great and could have used an editor. The author‘s heart was definitely all-in but it fell a bit short for me. Still, the message was positive. 2/5⭐️
📚Anything, but cozy mysteries are a fav
🎁Bookmarks, socks, anything!
💋Lip gloss (or lippy, as I like to call it), lip balm, creams, soaps
🍫I follow a plant-based diet, so I stick to dark chocolate
🎬While You Were Sleeping, Die Hard, NL‘s Christmas Vacation, Elf, A Christmas Story
🎄Christmas is my fav holiday! I collect Santa figurines & ornaments, but I 💜 everything Christmassy. Also 💜 stationary, washi tape, & stickers.
I‘m not sure that I have a #favoritefallread, or at least I couldn‘t think of one. But I‘ve enjoyed two other Gaiman books, and I‘m looking forward to delving into this one this fall. Well, later today, actually! 📚 #fallisbooked
It was a beautiful fall day today! The days are getting shorter and the temps cooler, but I don‘t mind. Cooler temps = curling up with my book and #blanket. And a happy coincidence, my nails match my blanket!😂 #fallisbooked
According to Goodreads, I read this #football book back in 2009. Ten years later and I still remember how much I enjoyed it! 4/5⭐️ i enjoyed the movie too, but as is often the case, the book was better. #fallisbooked
I kinda fell short on last month‘s challenge. But, I‘m giving it another shot! For my #OctoberTBR, I‘m planning on finishing the 3 novels on the right and will hopefully get to at least one on the stack. 🤞🏽#fallisbooked
Every month, I track a number of things in the hopes that at least one of them will develop into a #goodhabit! As you can see, it can be hit or miss. But this list is a good reminder of what I hope to accomplish. #SelfImprovementSept
This was Audible's daily deal today. I had a $5 coupon, so thought I'd check out this #selfhelpbook. Here's hoping it's a good one! #somethingnew #selfcaresunday #multitasking #catchingup #SelfImprovementSept
I‘m not sure if many would call #bulletjournalling a #hobby. But I place it firmly in this category as I spend a lot of creative time in it. It keeps me organized and sane! And maybe I‘m also addicted to washi tape and stickers. 😂 #SelfImprovementSept
It‘s been a while since I‘ve participated in one of these challenges, but this one intrigued me! I‘m behind on my various reading challenges, so I decided to gather a stack of books that will help me complete them before the end of the year. These will keep me busy from now until December! #readinggoals #SelfImprovementSept
This story was quite interesting, if a tad repetitive. But, I didn't end up enjoying it as much as I expected to. I usually relish listening to authors read their own memoirs, but not so much this time. Kudos to Stallworth for his efforts to curtail the Ku Klux Klan and many thanks that he shared his experiences through this book, but he's no narrator. Perhaps reading the print edition would have been better. Still, it‘s worth reading. 2.5/5⭐️
What a great audiobook! I loved all the characters, even the annoying ones. I highly recommend the audiobook narrated by the talented Jenna Lamia. She really brought the characters to life. 4/5⭐️
Not my favourite of ACD‘s books, but still an entertaining read. And thus endeth the series! I really enjoyed the Audible version of the Sherlock Holmes series and highly recommend it. Stephen Fry breathes life into each individual character. He‘s amazing! 3/5⭐️
This was my last book read in July and it was a fun way to end my reading month! To think that I just started reading Dahl. 😳 Not sure how I got this far in life without reading any of his books, but glad that I've finally read a couple. This was a highly entertaining and imaginative story. A perfect summer read, relatively short and lots of fun. 4/5⭐️
I finally gave in and bought the illustrated editions of the first three HP books. I have the regular editions, so didn‘t think I “needed” these. But I was wrong. 😂The artwork is amazing. And the 4th volume is set for release in October!🙌🏽
And another #24in48 #readathon is in the books! It was a great ‘thon for me with 4 books read and a dent made in the tagged audiobook. And, as always, it was so much fun reading with fellow Littens. Many thanks to the organizers for doing such a great job! And congrats to all participants! I‘m already looking forward to January. 😉
Oh my gods, how I loved this book! I am not usually a romcom gal, but this was fun. A main character who values family tradition paired with a young woman who is desperately trying to establish her independence from her family and we have a winner! 5/5⭐️#24in48
Book 3 is done for the July 2019 #24in48 #readathon. This one got me off to a great start for Day 2 of the ‘thon. Loved the artwork. And the story made for an enticing intro to the main characters and their world. I‘ll definitely continue reading the series. But I may start watching the Netflix version before I read more. Looking forward to both! 4/5⭐️
And just like that, it‘s day 2 of #24in48 for July 2019! I‘m starting with something a little different this morning. Good luck to all and happy reading. 😉📚🙌🏽
Book 2 for July 2019's #24in48 #readathon. What a lovely, poignant, heartfelt read! Stan and Nan's story was by turns happy and sad, and always thoughtful. This one hit a bit close to home as my Mom is elderly and not as stable as she used to be. I really identified with Nan's daughter and granddaughter. Oomph, hard to read but very well worth it. 4/5⭐️
Book one for July 2019's #24in48 #readathon is done! And I've made strides in my Sherlock Holmes audiobook.👍🏽This book was a great way for me to start the 'thon. it's been a while since I've read a true cozy mystery, and I can always rely on Lori and Aunt Dimity to reignite my enjoyment of the genre. The story was simple, the mystery not so mystery, and the reading was light. Perfect! 3/5⭐️
Good morning fellow #24in48 readathoners and Littens! I'm up and at 'em and ready for the challenge. This is most of my #tbr for this weekend. I don't think I'll get to them all, but wanted to have choices.😉Also on tap is an audiobook and a couple of ebooks. Happy 'thoning!
