Holiday Reads of 2019: 3 Book Reviews in 1

I told you I would be a one stop shop for holiday reads this December! I tried to read all the books in my Bookstagram tree, but after a few too many less than jolly reads I switched gears. I feel like Scrooge!

I’m terrible. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy them enough to DNF, its just that my reading was slow moving and I didn’t have that need to turn the next page feeling to whip through them. Darn it, I just realized I may be in a bit of a reading slump so don’t take my reviews to much to heart.

First up (the best of the bunch):

The Christmas Keeper (Happily Ever After #2) by Jenn McKinlayRead More »

Outlandishly fun holiday novella!

My first two holiday reads didn’t bring the jolly spirit so this novella came at the perfect time to get my holly jolly Christmas vibes going! In just three hours the main characters turn up the chemistry. For fans of The Hating Game by Sally Thorne and Roomies by Christina Lauren.Read More »

Okay, now back to the book review you have all been anxiously awaiting…

For fans of A Christmas Carol and It’s a Wonderful Life. I whipped through this book in a day. It is not a cheery, sugar cookie read. It’s more in line with It’s a Wonderful Life, where you watch and hope for goodness to come back to Kate, and come fast. Read More »

Doesn’t that throw look super comfy?! It is! I got it at Indigo for $35 (since I purchased a bit of books I was able to get a promo price). Okay, now back to the book…

It’s Book 3 in a series, but it can be read as a standalone

I came across this book at Target and the cover screamed “cute holiday love story in a small, cozy town.” I was thinking Hallmark movie and what I got was more in line with an ABC after school special: looks can be deceiving.Read More »
