Christmas/Winter Book Mini-Reviews: Christmas in Vermont, Mistle Text, The Christmas Lights, Orphan in the Snow #BookReview #20BooksForChristmas #HoHoHoRat #BeatTheBacklist2022

I am continuing to enjoy Christmas stories as I prepare for the Christmas Season. I am participating in 20 Books for Christmas, as well as the Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon, so was able to read or listen to several this week. A couple of these were not really Christmas, but more winter themed, but they were already on my list. Some are also backlist books, so I am actually ticking off 3 lists with one book. In the #20BooksForWinter these are #16, #17, and #18. One was not on that list.

Saturday Morning for Kids – Christmas Addition: Cat’s Don’t Like Christmas, First Steps, First Snow, Little Bird Finds Christmas #BookReview #Children #PictureBooks

This meme was started by Rae Longest at Powerful Women Readers. As I am a grandmother, who loves to read to her grandchildren, a mother who loved to read to and with her children, and a retired teacher librarian, this meme really attracted me.

Christmas Book Reviews: The Cowboy Cookie Exchange, The Wish, So This is Christmas #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge @HarperAudio

I am continuing to work on my 20 Books For Christmas challenge, but I am also reading or listening to books that are not on that list. All three of these were audiobooks that I listened to, and none are on my original list of 20 Books for Christmas. They were all provided to me by the publisher upon request. The ratings and opinions shared are my own.
