Thank you so much Fyrehaar for the lovely addition to my bookshelves! I’m already looking at what to cook this weekend.
Thanks Jennie! I’m very excited to read all 3 books. 🙂
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I received a Kindle copy of the celebrity memoir This Will Only Hurt a Little the day before Christmas, and a follow up package with a Hogwarts mug that looks like a cauldron (y’all, it’s got little legs/stands) after Christmas. Super excited about both, and I have already started the memoir, and some of her comments are so relatable! Thank you again to borisanne, I know you mentioned some logistical issues (I will definitely pick up Educated!) but it was perfect and thoughtful!
Pictured…my very boring desk at work. Thank you Ale for the lovely goodies, especially the socks (I teared up a little, I’m not going to lie.) This community is the best! Smoochies.
Book mail is always the best mail! Many thanks to Allison O. for sending me the books below and for this gorgeous watercolor card. We have some seriously talented people in CBR. I love that both books have a feminist edge!
Happy Jolabokaflod, everyone! As is tradition, we all just opened our Cannonball exchange books, and everyone is over the moon.

You all rock and we couldn’t be more grateful for everything. Happy holidays!!
It’s the Cannonball Read 10 Holiday Book Exchange! I didn’t get ANY books reviewed this year (and because of stupid “1Q84,” I also didn’t quite meet my reading goal this year… I’ll probably only get to 49/52), but I love this community and still played the book exchange game! And guess what? I WON!(J/K… we all won.) My amazing Santa, CoffeeShopReader got me the best gift, The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, which, like, is even better because my Santa last year got me the sequel and I’ve been dreaming of buying the OG edition. Now it’s mine, all mine! She also […]
A huge thank you to Crystal Clear for jump starting my next CBR, which will hopefully be more successful than this one was. I read 21 books and managed to review none of them, so there’s no where to go but up!
