Is anybody else‘s #botm box in limbo? They‘re hasn‘t been an update in a few days, and I‘m thinking it‘s because of the holidays soon approaching. I guess I‘m just a tad impatient because I‘m stoked to get it 🤷🏻‍♀️

AmyG I can only say-mail is awful right now. ☹️ 2d
TheQuietQuill I know, it really is. I sent out my box for a litsy swap I‘m doing super early because I‘m afraid it wasn‘t going to get to its destination by Christmas. Even the postal woman said it‘s a mess right now 😬 @AmyG 2d
AmyG I am going to send my swaps early too. I get actual letters maybe once or twice a week now. 2d

ICantImReading This happened to me last month! (And it also got stuck in York, PA!) BOTM reached out to say it was delayed and ended up sending me another box… but then I ended up getting both boxes 😬 (I donated the second copies of the books.) It‘s the first time my box had ever been so late! 2d
TheQuietQuill It seems like York post office has some delay issues because this happened to me a few times before too! The one time they were so late, I didn‘t get it until the middle of the month! Hopefully that‘s not the case this time, yikes 😬 @ICantImReading 2d
mdm139 York is always delaying my packages. Every month it takes days to get out of there. I have a friend there that send me things and those things always get stuck there too. Every time. 2d
Megabooks Lately the post office movement hasn‘t been showing up after the transfer but I‘ve eventually gotten both books from BOTM and book outlet in a few days. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ 3h

❄️One swap that I‘m participating in this December is the #jolabokaflodswap which is exciting because it‘s my first swap ever! Other than that, I don‘t think I‘ll be participating in any challenges because the hustle and bustle is real this holiday season for me hehe 😜 ❄️My favorite winter memory is putting up the Christmas tree as a family with my dad when we were younger. I wish I would have cherished that a bit more.

Woah #botm is early this month! I went all out this box because this will be my last box before I sadly unsubscribe. I think I want to do more litsy swaps in the future instead. It‘s been real #botm ✌🏻

Took a break from reading to be tourists in our town of #jimthorpe 🎄 If you ever visit the poconos, JT is a must in the winter and fall. We did the Santa train ride, and then walked the shops on Broadway. Needless to say, my little man was stoked to see the big man! #hometown #poconos

This is so much more intense and sad reading as an adult. I forgot all about what happened when they “released” babies and adults, and it was very graphic for me when the father “released” one of the babies. As a mom, that part gutted me. This book is a must read and a huge eye opener. I‘m so happy I read it again as an adult.

Another classic to start on this cozy and bitter night. I read this back in middle school, but I remember it to be absolutely haunting. Now that I‘m an adult, I look forward to seeing it through different eyes.

I‘m definitely an early bird this year for Christmas. As I get older, the seasons start and then are over in a blink of an eye. This year, I‘m hoping to cherish it a tad longer. Little House on the Prairie is my background noise tonight while reading by the fire. #myfavoritetimeofyear

I‘m probably in the minority here, but I did not enjoy this one at all. It was too descriptive for me, and not enough happening. I think I just have a hard time with this type of folklore, because I didn‘t enjoy “Vassa in the Night” either.

I‘m working on getting an Etsy shop up and running soon for my book sleeves I have been making lately! I also make tumblers and will be adding those as well to my (near future) shop. It will be called “The Quiet Quill” and I‘ll post more once I get up and running. Super excited and nervous at the same time 😬

I can‘t say I was too impressed with this one. I loved the first two books in the series, but this one just couldn‘t measure up. I‘m certainly going to try the blueberry muffin recipe from the book though, it sounds divine!
