So Christmas is done but we are still waiting for the New Year and things are really starting to take shape over here at Blog A Book. In the next couple of weeks you will be seeing some changes here and there. If there is anything in particular that you would like to see on the blog just send me an email. So back to the late Monday’s  post.

I finished listening to this on Audible a couple of days ago and have to say I am glad it is over.
Review will be up soon.

This book is a title from earlier in the year but it has been waiting on my shelf for some time so I figured it would be a good opportunity to read it now and listen along the way. I have read a couple of Moriarty’s books and loved them. Have you read any?

Life

Yankee Candles, Candles, Christmas, Christmas Candles, Snuggling, Festive, Blog A Book Etc, Fay, Scented Candles, Sugared Apples, Christmas Eve, Candy Cane Lane, Cinammon Stick, Christmas Cookies

Don’t you just love it when you have an excuse to light some scrummy Yankee Candles! The Christmas scents are particularly yummy smells. Do you have a favourite?

Crowded Christmas Shopping

That’s right – two days before Christmas being normal human beings we forgot some bits and had to brave the crowds. This is just a little part of the crowd that we encountered in Stratford Westfield.

Of course I had to get the boy a present and he absolutely loved it – it lasted all of two days.

Although I am working on New Year’s Eve that doesn’t stop me thinking about what I would wear if I was actually going out. There will be a post up tomorrow with other items for an outfit to bring in the New Year. What are you wearing for the big night?

So despite it being Tuesday I hope you enjoyed my Monday post!

This week my reading schedule has been a little crazy and when I say that I mean from 0 to 60 within nano seconds. Throughout a nasty bout of acute tonsillitis I have found it hard to stay awake, concentrate and generally just function so reading has been quite a challenge. My DVD collection however has most definitely taken a bash as it is a lot easier to just fall asleep with a movie on.

That being said I have made good progress with the book I am currently reading.

Currently Reading

The Mill River Redemption, Darcie Chan, Fiction, Reading, Books, Little Brown Books UK, Sphere Publishing, Blog A Book Etc

When I started this book my initial thoughts were not great but now that I am into it things have most definitely changed.

Struggling

Our Tragic Universe, Scarlett Thomas, Books, Reading, Fiction, Canongate, Blog A Book Etc

This is one book that I wanted to love but some things just are not meant to be! Well at least not yet!
This book has been shelved for a while.

Still Unsure

Bridget Jones, Helen Fielding, Books, Reviews, Reading, Fiction, Chick Lit, Blog A Book Etc

This book did not start off well for me – having watched a couple of the films and not read any of the books I think I need to start from the beginning. What a shame!

What Next?

What I Had Before You, Novel, Sarah Cornwell, Reading, Books, Blog A Book Etc, Fiction

Adultery, Paulo Coelho, Reading, Fiction, Books, Blog A Book Etc

Little Lies, Liane Moriarty, Big Little Lies, Penguin, Random House, Michael Joseph Books, Reading, Fiction, Hardback, Blog A Book Etc

John & George The Dog who Changed my Life, John Dolan, Books, Reading, Hardback, Non Fiction, Blog A Book Etc

One of the above two but I am not sure which once may get chosen.

What are you reading?
