(This is a review from December 2019)
As you might know from my previous blog post, i’ve been really in to rom-com’s and contemporary novels at the moment. Light and easy reads that make your heart happy. I decided amongst that thought to pick up the newly released 10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston. A festive read full of promising contemporary cute moments.
In the last few years my goal has been to read the entirety of David Levithan’s work. As an author that i’ve been fond of for quite some time, i’d like to read everything he’s done to be firm in my love for him. Last year i read Dash and Lily’s Book Of Dares, co-written by Rachel Cohn in order to add to ,my read list.
It’s been a while since i ventured in to the world of book tags (to be honest, it’s been a while since i’ve had the time to do so). Christmas is the perfect time to browse the internet for some new tags that i’ve not come across before, and this year i found The Joy Of Christmas Book Tag.
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.

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

Summary: Sierra’s family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon – it’s an idyllic place for a girl to grow up, except that every year they have to pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot for the season. So Sierra lives two lives: her life in Oregon and her life at Christmas. And leaving one always means missing the other. Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life begins to eclipse the other. . .
