Let’s talk books! This is a post where I talk all about books by answering the following questions…

  1. What have I finished reading?
  2. What am I currently reading?
  3. What will I be reading next?
  1. What have I finished reading?

Because the week prior I didn’t have much time to read (unfortunately), I hate when that happens. But this week I was able to finish two books.

This was an amazing book, I was happy to pick this book up again. It had me on the edge of my seat. I definitely do not want to give away too much. If you think thrillers, you are definitely going to like this one.

And

This was such a lovely book, especially since I read it during the Christmas season. I think it made it that much more magical. I loved this book. I can’t wait to buy it for sister, so she can read it soon.

2. What am I currently reading?

I have seen the movie with Leonardo DiCaprio back in 2013 with my mom, and I loved it so much. I cannot wait to finally read the book. I realized that I bought the book, twice, so I ended up giving one to my sister for Christmas. It is a fairly short book, so she shouldn’t have a problem with it. I can’t wait to talk about it with her. I can’t wait to watch the movie again.

3. What will I read next?

WWW Wednesdays – December 30th, 2020

Unfortunately I have been busy getting my house ready for the new year, so I haven’t been able to finish reading these books. I like to do a thorough clean for my house, so it’s ready for 2021.

Let’s talk books! This is a post where I talk all about books by answering the following questions…

  1. What have I finished reading?
  2. What am I currently reading?
  3. What will I be reading next?

I would love to know what everyone is reading! 🙂

  1. What have I finished reading?

Nothing, recently, unfortunately.

2. What am I currently reading?

And

I started reading this on Christmas Eve, but I haven’t picked it up since then. So far it is a cute story.

3. What will I be reading next?

I have actually been meaning to read this book sometime throughout 2020, because of the Roarin’ 20’s. So it seems fitting that I start with 2021 with this book. I can’t wait to read it. I have seen the movie though. I really enjoyed it.

  1. What have I finished reading?

I really enjoyed how insightful this book, and I thought she had provided us with great advice. Another thing I like about reading her books is that she talks about it from a Canadian perspective, so she would talk about RRSPs (Registered Retirement Saving Plan) which is money we set aside for our retirement. In the U.S. it’s called a 401K. I really like that aspect about the book.

My rating: 3.5 stars out of 5

2. What am I currently reading?

I just started this book, so far it’s really good. I can’t wait to read more.

3. What will I read next?

I can’t wait to read this book tomorrow night!

This week is all about holiday or a seasonal books/covers, books that take place in winter, or have a cozy scene, or takes place in the cold.

I only have two Christmas/winter book at hand, but I think I would like to read some Christmas books. These are the books I would like to read.

  1. The Christmas Sisters

This is the only Christmas book I have on hand at the moment. This book is about how a mother wishes to spend the holiday with her three adoptive daughters. But each daughter is currently going through something, that may prevent them from spending the holidays together. Will they figure out a way, so they can all spend it together?

2. The Long Winter

I haven’t read this book, yet. It was written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. It’s about how her family work together by surviving a long winter in the prairies.

3. In a Holidaze

I saw this on someone’s blog, and I think it looks great. I would love to read it one day. I have heard a lot of good reviews about In a Holidaze.

This book is where Mae wishes to be happy. She spends every holiday at a cabin in Utah with her family, playing board games, while eating and drinking. She asks the universe to show her happiness, so she ends up in a time loop reliving Christmas, until she gets her true love under the mistletoe.

4. 12 Dates of Christmas

This book is about a single woman who goes on 12 different dates.

5. The Greatest Gift

This book tells the story about how our life touches and intertwines with other people. George is greeted with his Guardian Angel, when he was thinking about jumping off of a bridge. His Guardian Angel shows George how different everyone’s lives would be had George not born. I have seen the movie several times, but never have read this book yet.

6. A Christmas Carol

I haven’t read this book, or seen this movie either. I really would like to. It’s about a man who gets visited by his former business partner, and the spirits of Christmas, the past, present and future.

7. The Christmas Train

It’s about a journalist trying to make it home for the holidays, forced to take the train from Washington D.C., to LA. He begins to realize that things, and sees life differently now from this train ride.

8. Skipping Christmas

What would our lives look like if we skipped Christmas, no crowded malls, less stress that has somehow became part of the holiday tradition. I think I would like this book a lot. I have always wondered what things would be like. I’m trying to make mine Christmas traditions less commericialized.

9. ‘Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas

A diary of a junior doctor in what he has experienced during the holidays.

10. The Christmas Wedding

The bride in the story is getting remarried, she has kept her groom a secret from her family. They haven’t gotten together for Christmas since the passing of her first husband. She also has another secret that is going to change everyone’s lives forever.
