Hello! We are on day 9 of our Christmas read-along of I’ll Be Home for Christmas and I’m genuinely loving it so far.

I’m going to update you on what my favourites are so far and what I love about them.  Continue reading

Christmas Read-Along 2017

The time is upon us, and that time is Christmas time. Each year so far on the blog we’ve organised a Christmas Read-Along. Mainly so myself and Sophie have an excuse to read something together. But last year so many of you got involved in our read-along of My True Love Gave To Me it became a whole lot more community based and exciting! It fueled us to do a very similar event this year!

I hope the readalong is going really well for everyone! We are now halfway through and today is number 7 of 12 stories! You can still join, we are halfway through which just means if you read two short stories a day you can catch up in no time. Or you can read them out of order (the joy of books of short stories!) Sarah gave her thoughts on the first two stories a few days ago and I will briefly review what I think of stories 3 to 6! Continue reading

December Wrap-Up

After a very big reading slump in November, I managed to pull myself back in to the swing of things in December! Hurrah!

Skipping Christmas by John Grisham Review

Title: Skipping Christmas

Author: John Grisham

Genre: Christmas, Humour, Contemporary

Publisher: Arrow

Publication Date: November 6th 2001

Pages: 177

Summery : Imagine a year without Christmas. No crowded shops, no corny office parties, no fruitcakes, no unwanted presents. That’s just what Luther and Nora Krank have in mind when they decide that, just this once, they’ll skip the holiday altogether. Theirs will be the only house on the street without a rooftop Frosty the snowman; they won’t be hosting their annual Christmas Eve bash; they aren’t even going to have a tree. They won’t need one, because come December 25 they’re setting sail on a Caribbean cruise.
