1. Mexico's history
2. When visiting Chapultepec in Mexico City, it was fascinating to learn a brief history of the castle, which made me realize that I don't know much about Mexico between the years after conquest & before Mexican revolution.

I recommend a lot of books and it all depends on the person. However, I do tend recommend these the most:

1. Interview with the Vampire - Anne Rice
2. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan- Lisa See
3. Lamb, the Gospel According to Biff- Christopher Moore
4. Molokai- Alan Brennert
5. Like Water for Chocolate -Laura Esquivel
6. Outlander -Diana Gabaldon

Blood of Elves | Andrzej Sapkowski

Mehso-so

Finished reading this book today and I have more questions than answers. There were a lot of character introductions and world building but not too much of a plot. However, I am intrigued to find out what will happen to Ciri that I'll give the next book a chance. Now, I am to watch the series. 3⭐

Here are the books I have so far for #NewYearWhoDis #NYWD22 hosted by @monalyisha 🤗
The top two I have physically, the bottom left is an audiobook while the bottom right is an ebook. I may be adding more to the list if I can get my hands on some of the other books.
I was matched with @TheAromaofBooks

monalyisha Love that cover on the bottom right! Have fun! Happy New Year! 🎉✨ 2w
TheAromaofBooks Yay!!! I like to spread mine out through the year, so this month I'm reading Dragon Slippers (plus the two sequels) and I'm planning to read at least four or five of the others from your list over the next few months!!! 2w
vonnie862 @TheAromaofBooks I like the idea of spreading it out for the whole year. I may be doing that if my reading doesn't go as planned for this month. I hope you like Dragon Slippers! I had fun with that one and I plan to read the rest of the series this year. I'll be looking forward to your thoughts on the rest of the series. 2w
vonnie862 @monalyisha thanks! Thank you for all the hard work you did in matching everyone! 2w

I had so much fun in participating in #WinterGames2021 hosted by @StayCurious and @Clwojick 😊. I didn't think I was going to do good but I ended up surprising myself. I've let work take over my life and have stopped reading. The games ignited my passion again and have reminded that I CAN find time to read. I am looking forward to 2022!

Mistletoe at Moonglow | Deborah Garner

Mehso-so

Here's my last read of 2021. This was a strange story that did not really have a plot. It was about people, strangers and old acquaintances, spending Christmas at an inn in a small town. The people arrived sad or stressed but by Christmas, they were happy. Don't read this book on an empty stomach! The majority of it was descriptions of the meals being served. 3⭐ #WinterGames2021 #teamgamesleighers @StayCurious #BookSpinBingo #20 @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks I didn't really connect with this one. I found Mist to be a bit annoying haha 2w
vonnie862 @TheAromaofBooks I can see that. I didn't care much for Mist. I was trying to figure out if there was going to be a plot or not. There wasn't. Lol 2w
TheAromaofBooks Right?? I got to the end and was like... hmm. 😂 2w

Found this in my Nook TBR and decided to pick it up. It was short but entertaining. Starr was a modern version of Scrooge. Her birthday was on Christmas but she hadn't had many great Birthday Christmas celebrations. I did not see the Cinderella connection but I did enjoy its retelling of The Christmas Carol. 4⭐

Picked up this children's book in Spanish to help me ease in when I start reading in Spanish again. This was a well done nonfiction book on the soccer player, Cristiano Ronaldo. It was easy to understand yet it was informative for the age group. 3.5 ⭐

This was a quick and fun mystery book. Though I was a little surprised how the main character Emma was "allowed" to help solve the mystery, it was still an enjoyable read. 3.5 ⭐
