Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.
Happy Monday everyone. I hope you are all doing well. We drove out to Upstate NY last week for some picture-taking, hence the photo above. It was a beautiful day and a great way to de-stress a bit after a crazy week. It was the perfect Fall day.
On a bookish note, I know that Thanksgiving hasn’t even arrived, yet I couldn’t help be in the Christmas spirit already. I just have one book to share this week:
I received a review copy of All I Want for Christmas: A feel good Christmas romance to warm your heart by Jenny Hale via Bookouture.
They had me at “A feel good Christmas romance to warm your heart”.
All I Want for Christmas is a big, cozy Christmas story about the importance of family, the strength of childhood friendships, and learning to trust your heart.
Christmas comes once a year . . . But true love comes once in a lifetime….
I’m almost finished reading A Week to Be Wicked by Tessa Dare and I think I may jump right in and read All I Want for Christmas next. Does anyone have any Christmasey book recommendations? They don’t have to be romance themed, I could go for a holiday mystery too.
On a non-reading note, but going along with the holiday theme, I have been on a Christmas stocking crochet kick these few weeks. I’ve been crocheting football team stockings using this stocking pattern which is really simple to follow. My daughter and dad like the NY Giants, so I made two of those.
Since my hubby and son are die hard NY Jets fans, two of those. I whip up the stockings in team colors, and my daughter makes the bows using fabric we found at the craft store. It really is a team effort. Pun intended.
As for myself, I decided to remain neutral and worked up one in red, white and green cotton yarn. I will make my mom one next so I may do a NY Yankees one which is her favorite baseball team.
That is all for now. What books have arrived at your doorstep lately?
Enjoy your week and thanks for stopping in xo
