Meeeeeeerry Christmas, everyone! And of course the token but heartfelt if you’re not celebrating have a merry time anyway. And if you absolutely detest Christmas, I hope you have successfully locked yourself away and will be happy to hear that it’s safe to come out again tomorrow. At least we’re having the warmest December since the beginning of time, so Grinches can rejoice at the lack of snowpeople and snowball fights. Okay, since we started recording the weather, but it’s almost the same thing.
We had a more or less stressless Christmas Eve (which is when food and family and presents happen in Germany). Yesterday was more of a fuck-off-world-please day for me, so I mainly spent it reading, but today we had raclette and guests and did I mention raclette? I think my favorite time about the winter holidays specifically is that so many of my friends who are usually distributed across the world, or at least the country, are home for the holidays, so I can see them. I don’t have to work next week, but I do have to speedily produce a 20-page essay, so we’ll see how that goes. I’ve also been vlogging again, because what’s more interesting than one random person’s life.
I was all prepared to say I didn’t get anything this week sadface emoticon, but then I realized I bought four books. Oops. I found a voucher from 2013 and one from this year, so I went to town. I know, party hard.
All The Bright Places, Firewalker, Conquest and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Aaand we’re back to a list with one bullet point. I swear I wanted to write up more posts; I just…didn’t.
- I reviewed speed reading tests because why not
Tune of the Week
It’s gotta be something Christmassy this week! I really like this version of All I Want For Christmas Is You (the good part starts at 0:43).
As always, I’m linking up with Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and the Sunday Post hosted by the Caffeinated Book Reviewer!
