Blog Update: Happy Solstice and Merry Christmas!

This week I’m linking up with Sunday Post, Sunday Salon, and It’s Monday! What are you reading? Thank you for hosting, Kimberly, Deb, and Kathryn!

Happiest of holidays to all who are celebrating this time of year! It’s a tradition that the elves magically move to the kids’ stockings on Christmas Eve, because Santa takes them back to the North Pole after he visits. I know my kids are nearly adults, but they don’t seem to mind.

Like a lot of the US, we’ve been through a major cold snap here in Kansas with highs below zero. Even with a new coat, Ginger said “nope” to going outside. Smart girl.

I’ve read several books over the past few weeks, but haven’t had a chance to write many reviews. December is so busy! I’m hoping to get some reviews posted the week after Christmas and catch up on blog hopping.

Books I’ve Recently Read:

  • THE GHOST OF DROWNED MEADOW by Kelley Skovron
  • THE GUEST HOUSE by Robin Morgan-Bentley
  • HORRID by Katrina Leno
  • FRUIT BASKETS AND HOLIDAY CASKETS by Gayle Leeson
  • TWELVE SLAYS OF CHRISTMAS by Jacqueline Frost
  • THE HOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET by Jennifer Sklias-Gahan
  • AN EGGNOG TO DIE FOR by Amy Pershing

I’ll leave you with a clip from my favorite new-to-me artist, Lindsey Stirling, an amazing violinist and songwriter. She has two Christmas/Winter albums that I’ve been listening to on repeat. I really love the video for Snow Waltz because it speaks to my gothic heart…

Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful holiday! — 𝓓𝓲𝓪𝓷𝓪

  1. My mom told us that Santa would always come as long as we believed in him. And we did…even into our sixties!

    It’s so cold here! It’s generally so balmy that I don’t even have a winter coat, but it dipped down to 17! I don’t know how you do it.

  2. Oh I love that the elves go in the sack back to Santa. I must ask my nieces do they do that! We’ve been entertained by the elves in the lead up to Christmas! Hope that cold abates to a manageable reading.

  3. I just read a book which is set in a small town in Kansas. The news here in Germany are full about the snow and cold weather in the US and Canada. Despite that I hope you were able to enjoy the Christmas Eve and the holidays at least a bit.

  5. Ginger’s face completely echoes my feelings of the whole weather situation. We actually have a light dusting of snow here in Alabama and I am not happy about it! I love Lindsey Stirling! She adds such amazing spirit to her music as well as it just being gorgeous to listen to. I hope you have a wonderful week!

  6. Merry Christmas to you and Ginger! The elves are so cute. I keep my elf around even though my kids are grown now. We all end up moving him around every once in a while. Enjoy your books this week, the Lindsey Stirling music is nice.

    I also love me some Lindsey Stirling. She’s a local for me and have enjoyed her music and music videos.
    Those books look good! Love me some mystery with holiday flare.
