Christmas in July – Final Update

My July theme for the past few years has been Christmas in July. I love to read Christmas stories all year, but in July with the heat and humidity, I enjoy reading wintry, cold and Christmassy stories. This year is no different. I set my goal to read then Christmas stories, but I surpassed that by reading or listening to 16. Below you will see the books I read, and clicking on the cover will take you to my review, if you haven’t already read it. Continue reading “Christmas in July – Final Update”

#ChristmasinJuly2021 #BookReviews Remembrance, Right Beside You, Here Comes Santa Paws

Continuing with Christmas in July, I have been enjoying more novellas. They are all short and sweet, sharing that Christmas feeling and in most cases a little bit of Christmas Magic. At one time all of these books were provided to me by the publishers. All opinions and ratings are my own.

Children’s Hallowe’en Picture Books #BookReview

This week, my granddaughter was on a Hallowe’en kick. She wore a couple of costumes around the house and wanted me to read her Hallowe’en stories. She found these ones on my tablet and we read them together as well as with her brothers. They loved them all and we had a lot of fun with them. I know it is still six months to Hallowe’en, but they are not published for a few months so it will give you time to decide if you want to order any of them. All of these books were provided to me by the publisher upon request. The rating and opinions shared are our own.

Final Christmas Readathon Update – December

I began my Christmas reading in earnest, starting September 1st. My goal for each month is to read or listen to 12 to 15 Christmas books that are on my TBR. In September, I read/listened to  17 of these books. In October, I read/listened to another 19 and in November I only added 13 more to my total. I finished off my readathon with a bang. I read or listened to 17 Christmas books in December. This brings my grand total of 66 Christmas books from September 1st to December 31st. I more than reached my goal of 50. I still have a lot left on my TBR, but this put a nice dent in it. I am done with Christmas stories until Christmas in July. Continue reading “Final Christmas Readathon Update – December”

Last Christmas Reads for 2020: Christmas Charms, Christmas in Bayberry, An Unforgettable Christmas, The Last Christmas Cowboy #AudiobookReviews

This past week, I was on an audiobook blitz of Christmas Stories. As I finished all my preparations (wrapping gifts, sewing projects, baking, cleaning etc.) I listened to audiobooks. Several were Hallmark romances that I really enjoyed due to the happily ever afters I look for at this time of year. All of these were ebooks that I had been gifted through netgalley at one time, but was able to get the audiobooks from my library through Hoopla. The ratings and opinions shared are my own. I recommend you add these to your TBR for next year’s Christmas Reading or Christmas in July.
