Good day, my Christmassy friends. I hope you’re having a wonderful time! Christmas is my very favorite holiday, because it’s like a fifth season and it goes on for weeks. What’s better than a holiday that literally lasts an entire month? Friends come home, almost everyone takes at least some time off and there’s great food, reading, cheesy movies and lots of sparkly decorations. Basically, it’s perfection.
At the moment I’m writing this, I’m listening to BBC Radio 1’s rock show and lounging in my comfy Christmas pajama bottoms (they say HOHOHO and also LOL and for some reason there’s a cat emoji involved – I’m not sure what the designers took, but I’m loving it) and I’ve spent the day
recovering from a hangover wrapping Christmas presents and watching Elf (how the FUCK does Zooey Deschanel look so different just because she has different hair!??). I wish you all a great Christmas week and fantastic holidays! And if you’re not celebrating Christmas, I wish you a phenomenal non-Christmassy week. Here’s some of my Christmas cookies. I think they’re pretty handsome if I may say so myself!
I bought Furiously Happy and I requested We Just Clicked and Holding Out For a Hero as eARCs (thanks go to So Vain Books and Pan Macmillan respectively), because I figured since I bought a Kindle and am actually reading ebooks now, I might as well try it. I mostly liked Furiously Happy, DNF’d We Just Clicked and just started reading Holding Out For a Hero.
On the Blog
Posts you might have missed since my last round-up:
- I reflected on What I Learned During NaNoWriMo
- I asked you How Often Should I Post?
- I reviewed Victoria Schwab’s A Darker Shade of Magic
- I talked about Younger, a TV show set in the publishing world of New York
- I also made a list of Ten Feel Good Movies When You Need Some Light Entertainment
- Finally, I asked Do You Review a Lot of Books You Didn’t Like On Your Blog?
Tune of the Week
I don’t really listen to a lot of Nicki Minaj, but I really like how her verse flows. Obviously I had to look up the lyrics and waste an hour trying to rap along. It went how you’d imagine it would (so brilliantly obviously, but if you’d ever ask me to do it, I’m suddenly gonna have a horrible cold that prevents me from speaking).
Do you have all your Christmas presents yet? Any holiday plans? Holiday book or movie recs? Let me know below!
