What I Got:
The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George - So it's a bookstore on a barge in Paris. Do I really need to say anything else? (NetGalley)
Good and Cheap by Leanne Brown -I love cookbooks and I love trying new recipes so this one that focuses on good food and cheap food is one that I definitely want to try! (NetGalley)
Scorched Eggs by Laura Childs - I won this in a giveaway hosted by Kristin at Always with a Book. While I'm not current on the series this is an author I've been reading for years so I was thrilled to get the book. Not only did the book arrive this week but it arrived signed from the author with a personalized comment. There may have been some a little bit of a dance when I opened this one! (Giveaway win)
Reading: The Mystery on the Blue Train by Agatha Christie and Living Well Spending Less by Ruth Soukup
Listening: Food: A Love Story by Jim Gaffigan. I just got this from the library and though I haven't had time to listen to very much what I have heard is pretty funny.
Watching: Netflix movies. I was thrilled to discover they had Grosse Pointe Blank. It was my favorite move for years so I was worried it wouldn't live up to my memories but turned out I still enjoyed it!
Off the Blog:
So we have done Christmas with my dad, Christmas with my mother, Christmas Eve with J's brother and family but without Eleanor, Christmas day and the day after Christmas with J's brother and family WITH Eleanor. All we have left is the Tornado's birthday. While this year has gone by much too fast I don't think I'll be too sad to see December over with. I need a nap.
I love this time of year! Christmas is over and it's time to get ready to start fresh for the new year! I love lists and reorganizing. I'm already working on limiting the review books I take on and just being more organized overall. I will definitely be far more prepared for December than I was this year!
