This one was kind of refreshing. Very Angela-centric. All the moving parts came together so well in the end.

Harry potter is what got this book lover started. I was gifted the third book and made to promise I wouldn't read it until I had the first and second books. Of course I read it right away onder the covers with a flashlight. #sundayfunday

thebacklistbook The backlist book awards are reader nominated and reader voted. The only rule is the book can't be a new release. Anything 2022 and older is good to go. Give you favorite books some love. (edited) 3w

Finished this one first for this year. Still just as good as the first time I read it. Continuing series will happen.

All of these terms are mentioned in this book or are themes in it. #wickedwords Now all I have to do is actually finish reading it.

thebacklistbook Pagan soul, holiday romance, jolabokaflod, hygge, carpe Diem, familiarity 1mo
thebacklistbook Pagan soul is for books that are either pagan themed or set back in time. Holiday romance is for books that are either holiday oriented or romances or both. Jolabokaflod should feature either a holiday tradition new to you or a new author or country of origin. Hygge is a comfort read or a new to you cozy read. Carpe diem a book translated into your language. Familiarity is for any reads that were on your tbr. 1mo

December 21 marks the winter solstice. It also marks the beginning of Yule. Wishing you all a festive and happy season that brings you what you need.

Blessed Be.

Wild Orchid | Beverley Brenna
Pickpick

This book is a beautiful coming of age story in which a girl learns that she doesn't need a boyfriend to live her life. She just needs to accept that certain changes are unavoidable. The voice of this novella makes it very difficult to read, but, absolutely worth every page of struggle.

This one is titled differently for different releases. More commonly as the f-it list. This one will destroy. It will also amaze.

Fair warning this one completely destroyed me. I read it as a teen and it was the first literary work I experienced a death of a character close to my own age.

Hot apple cider. Also cinnamon roibos chai. My favorite holiday singer is Nat Cole. Vinyl does his voice the best justice. The Christmas Song specifically. #two4tuesday

Progress on stocking 1 of three. Loosely inspired by a #yarnspirations pattern. Original pattern worked in rounds. I am working it flat and as such will be writing a new pattern for it. #christmasstocking #crafting
