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.

3 Christmas/Winter Novellas: Room at the Inn For Christmas, The Christmas Forest, Lavender & Mistletoe, #BookReviews

I have been enjoying quite a few Christmas stories this season and these are three novellas that were sweet Christmas romances. They were all different from each other, but I enjoyed each one, mainly because of the characters. I read each one within a few hours during cold evenings to warm my heart.

Saturday Morning For Kids, Winter and Christmas Stories Part #2

This is the rest of winter or Christmas books that I read with my grandkids when they came over to help me decorate my tree. I also snuck in one from Thanksgiving. Overall this was a wonderful group of books that I would recommend to public libraries, family libraries and schools. Where appropriate, I added my grandchildren’s thoughts and comments. All these books were provided by Netgalley upon request. The ratings and opinions shared are my own. Continue reading “Saturday Morning For Kids, Winter and Christmas Stories Part #2”

Christmas #AudiobookReviews, Christmas at Holiday House, A Dog’s Perfect Christmas, A Surprise Christmas Wedding

With Christmas less than 3 weeks away, the countdown is on. I continue to watch Christmas movies and enjoy reading and listening to Christmas stories. All three of these books were provided to me by either Netgalley or Edelweiss. I was also able to get the audiobooks either from the library or the publisher, so I did a read/listen for each of them, more listen than read. I enjoyed them all for very different reasons. The rating and opinions shared are my own. Continue reading “Christmas #AudiobookReviews, Christmas at Holiday House, A Dog’s Perfect Christmas, A Surprise Christmas Wedding”
