It's Monday and December is in full crazy mode!


Hi there, my fellow book lovers. How are things in your corner of the universe?

I managed to read three books this week, which hasn't happened in a while. I think some of it had to do with the snow we have been getting - there is nothing like curling up with a cup of coffee and a book! We did manage to make a lovely snowman though and give Miss Becca Grace her first experience with snow.


How are you doing getting ready for Christmas? I'm...well, nowhere near done. I should probably go work on that right now (slinks off)....

  2. I love Priscilla Shirer. It has been extremely cold and snowy here, but I was able to get out and get some shopping done. Cute snowman. Have a great week.

  3. Looks like you had a great week. We got a dusting of snow but missed the heavy accumulations. I'm really, really okay with that! Come check out my Monday Report if you get a chance. Happy reading and happy holidays!

    1. I can certainly understand that. Snow always seems like a nice idea but, in reality, it usually makes things complicated! Have a great week and happy holidays to you too!

  4. We got a lot of snow here and its been cold. Luckily we got some shopping done and I feel better about where we're at now as opposed to a few days ago. Time is flying by!

    Palisades Park sounds good.

  7. The Bones of Paris looks intriguing. Did you enjoy Bumped? I heard lots of good things about it, but haven't read it myself.

    Take a look at what I'm reading this week.

    1. I liked Bumped, but I'm not sure I'm hooked enough to pick up the sequel. I didn't realize until I started reading that she is the same author who wrote the Jessica Darling series.

    Am curious what you will make of Pinkerton's Great Detective. Have a great week.

  10. Hooray for snow! We finally got a few inches here as well. The cover of Pinkerton's Great Detective is so intriguing. It reminds me of the Magritte painting with the apple.

    1. Are the few inches a good thing?? :)

      I really like the cover too. Hopefully the book is just as good!

  11. I don't mean to alarm you but Christmas is next week! Haha. Hopefully you get everything prepared that you need to.
    My reading week wasn't the most successful, however I have been enjoying family time so that definitely makes up for it.

    1. Yes, I had heard that somewhere....I think everything will work out. I may or may not be a bit of a procrastinator.

      I'm glad you are having a great time with your family. Have a wonderful Christmas!
