I’m linking up with It’s Monday! What are you reading? Thank you for hosting, Kathryn!
Hi, all. It’s been a while since I’ve checked in on the blog, and I wanted to do so before Thanksgiving (next Thursday!!). Seems like every fall my reading and blogging slows down for one reason or another, and the same is true this year.
I’m getting over a bout of Covid (my first). It felt like a nasty cold, which wasn’t pleasant, but I know it could have been much worse without the vaccine. While I’ve been home sick, I’ve gotten lots of online Christmas shopping done. Add to cart!!
I did so-so with the R.I.P. XVII reading challenge. I read six books, but only really enjoyed a couple of them. Standouts were THE PLOT AND THE PENDULUM by Jenn McKinlay (cozy mystery) and THE GHOST OF DROWNED MEADOW by Kelley Skovron (middle grade horror).
Here’s a photo of my Halloween tree, which I just took down today. I love “Falloween,” it’s my absolute favorite season, but it just goes by way too quickly.
My TBR cart! I’m behind on my BOTM selections. I’ve heard wonderful things about THE CHANGE, THE CLOISTERS, and WHITE HORSE. And also VERITY and SPELLS FOR FORGETTING from the second shelf.
I’m currently reading STEEPED IN SECRETS by Lauren Elliot, the first book in the Crystals & CuriosiTEAS mystery series. I love a good paranormal cozy mystery.
It’s this sweet and silly girl’s birthday this weekend. Ginger is turning 10 years old! We’re fixing her favorite meal, grilled salmon and peas, so she can have a few bites. ♥
Until next time, take care. — 𝓓𝓲𝓪𝓷𝓪
