Bailedbailed

I tried. I put it down after page 25, and read again to page 63. I just couldn‘t connect with the characters, and the conversations they had were cringe-worthy. I felt like the author just couldn‘t figure out what direction she wanted to take. I got 5 words for #WGwordsearch & another bingo before bailing.

Yesterday I felt achy and was running a fever, so I spent the day watching television and a few Hallmark movies. Got two bingos from watching one movie, which was Switched at Christmas with Candace Cameron Bure.

This novella started off strong but quickly moved into the realm of clichés. Lots of points and two more bingos! Plus a pic of some snowmen for the #festivephotochallenge!

Soft pick for me; but it‘s likely that because I didn‘t realize it‘s the 20th book in a series! It looks like the author writes one book per month and the titles line up with the holidays, so I think I‘d like to keep reading them! 2nd Bingo too!

This is a nostalgic pick for me, as the Golden Book version used to be at my grandpa‘s each year. It‘s a cute, quick read about a little angel who is always a nuisance but ends up picking the perfect gift for the Christ child. #festivelphotochallenge

🌟🌟🌟🌟I started this and finished it in one evening on Christmas Eve, but I could see how this could make a good weekly devotional for Advent as well. It was interesting taking a closer look at Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna and how women are really important to the Christmas story.

Hi friends! How are you feeling about your progress?
What wrapped book would you give away (recommend)??

I have only wrapped one out of my five BOTM books, but am well on my way with two others, and have 3 complete for #bookspinbingo. I would give the tagged book, so others could enjoy the art!
