I hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving!! I spent most of the holiday weekend, reading, crocheting, and watching The Great British Baking Show. Yes, my life is indeed awesome.
I haven’t been the best at staying on top of my blogging game recently, but I assure you the month of December is jam packed because the majority of the month will be spent reviewing my lengthy list of reads from 2018. The list is far longer than expected.
As I did last year, there will be the four part Book Brawl to see what will be crowned as my personal best book of 2018. Last year’s winner was A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman. There are currently 69 contenders and there will be probably closer to 73ish by the time the last post is published this year.
There will also be a review of some stellar non-fiction and my favorite post of the year: The Razzies. The books that were the biggest flops. They didn’t make for very fun reading, but they make for some seriously fun blogging.
This will all be done along with all my Christmas present making. Last year, I had an inadvertent theme of getting nearly everybody a literary type gift and this year it seems that my theme is homemade gifts. I have a pretty good handle on a few, but I’ve got a ways to go. But for the first time in a long time I’m looking forward to the holiday gift-giving season.
I have gone from being afraid of being the strange person that gives horribly mis-shapen, ugly, itchy sweaters as gift to embracing it. (I promise that no one is getting a sweater. I cannot guarantee against the mis-shapen, ugly , or itchy parts.) But the thing is those are the gifts with a whole lot of love in them. Personally, I have always been jealous of Ron’s Christmas jumpers from his mother.
So, whatever happens there will be lots of memories and probably some pretty good laughs. I better get busy.
Until next time, happy reading!
