Do you even know how much I heart narfna? I knew I was in for a treat when her name was on the paper that fell out of Salt Fat Acid Heat. Speaking of Salt Fat Acid Heat, I watched the 4 episode Netflix series and I recommend it, even if cooking shows aren’t your thing. Samin Nosrat is such a joy. I have read the many positive reviews of Circe and I am so excited about reading it. I asked and narfna provided.
It has been a long semester (case in point: I’m 50 reviews behind, and am currently typing this on my phone at the dealership, because my husband’s trusty car has finally given up the ghost). So thanks to magical Christmas elf mathildehoeg for impeccable timing and beautiful gifts. I look forward to reading both books (the authors are both on my TBR list) and coloring in the activity book–how did you know I love to color??? Thank you, mathildehoeg!!!!
Came home to a rather heavy package from Amazon last night, and found that Jenny S had sent me My Favorite Thing is Monsters, and just in time! I have this on my list for next week, and was going to get it out of the library. She also sent me The Drifter, which I’ve never heard of before but will definitely be reading now, and some Mexican hot chocolate, for her family’s tradition of Jólabókaflóðið. (I make all my hot chocolate Mexican anyway, so this is just handy. Can’t go wrong with cinnamon, and just a hint of chili powder […]
Wall-E’s lack of enthusiasm is by no means a reflection of my attitude, I’m super excited! Thank you, Bunnybean, for sending The Language of Thorns and Six of Crows. TLoT has been on my “wish-list” and SoC has been on my “recommended by friends-list” and I had no idea they were by the same author, Leigh Bardugo, until I put my suggestions in the gift exchange form. I’m delighted to hear that your house highly recommends Bardugo and looking forward to reading them. Wishing you a joyful holiday season! Dome’Loki
I forgot to write down your name… Sorry!!! But OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG Thank you!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!!! I have wanted to read Saga Book 1 since I first saw the cover/learned it was on banned books lists! And I loved A Chair for My Mother as well. And never heard of The Best We Could Do! A Very Merry Holidays to me!!!!!!!!!! (I probably set this up wrong, sorry……but so excited wasn’t thinking straight!!!) Book Exchange.
Many thanks to scootsa1000 for these great books and a cute little set of bookplates. It made my day! Happy holiday book exchange, everyone!
Can’t wait to get started on these! Thank you so much!
Thank you, Bonnie!! I’m looking forward to reading some poetry (for the first time in a long time) over the holidays. And a classic! Middlemarch! Thank you so much!
