I haven't done one of these in a while, but I should probably rename it. None of these books came in my mailbox. However, it's the sentiment that matters, so here goes-- books I've read in the last couple of weeks (all images from Goodreads):
Dash & Lily's Book of Dares, Rachel Cohn & David Levithan
One of my holiday favourites! There was no way I was letting Christmas go by without Dash & Lily. I've pondered buying this book instead of checking it out from the library every year, but I'm afraid if it were within reach to re-read all the time, it would lose its magic. So it remains my 'read-every-Christmas' book.
Buzzwords, May Barenbaum
Chad picked this up for me from the library a couple of semesters ago when I was eye-deep in classwork. I added it to my to-read list with the promise that I would come back to it, and now I have. Haven't started it yet... it's sitting on my shelf begging for my attention.
A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens
I can't believe I've only just read this book. It was on my Kindle, I was on the bus, it was a long trip, and this is a short book (much to my surprise-- I thought it was longer). Loved it.
Head Over Heels, Sara Downing
Another Kindle read. Liked it but didn't love it. Enjoyed the writing style, though!
Diary of a Mall Santa, Stewart Scott
Heartwarming holiday read. Brought me to tears a couple of times. There's no doubt in my mind that this man is an excellent Santa.
Thumped, Megan McCafferty
Sequel to Bumped. Not quite as satisfying as the original, but it kept my attention enough to read it through in a single evening.
What are you reading this week?
What are we talking about today?
I used to have theme days. I've stopped doing that for now. My husband died in February and I'm trying to find a new normal. You'll probably read some sad stuff here for a while, mixed in with my usual ranting about bicycles and buses and books. I like 'B' words.
