Read a lot, so might have more related posts ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‹

I love the holidays! โ™ฅ๏ธ Already started planning for it ๐Ÿ˜‚ I figured Iโ€™d share my TBR then blog as I read, then maybe wrap up ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚

Love the planning process โ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ Love making lists (like Santa ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‡), tables, charts, etc. So, to start, had some books I was waiting to get to (Walking In A Witchy Wonderland, A Wallpaper Christmas, A Tale Of Two Cities) that Iโ€™ve been itching to get to. Then I asked for recommendations ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ Which was very helpful ๐Ÿ˜‰ The TBR is still a work in process (WIP)

Like the structure of readathons, but ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ if thereโ€™s any coming up. And this blog is meant to bring you along with me. So this is how it came to be structured how it is.

Realized while writing my โ€˜Bang In The Night ๐ŸŒƒโ€™ post (linked ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ), that I enjoy writing what I read in a flexible manner ๐Ÿ˜‰

Bang In The Night ๐ŸŒƒ

Bang In The Night ๐ŸŒƒ

Once my TBR is finalized, Iโ€™ll include it ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ! (Like incorporating graphics ๐Ÿ˜‚)

Similar to my Bang In The Night blog post (https://listenwirhprecious.com/2021/11/02/bang-in-the-night-%f0%9f%8c%83/), something like this ๐Ÿ˜‰

Finalized my TBR 11/3/21! Still 2 books from starting ๐Ÿ˜‚ Like to have them queued ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanksgiving ๐Ÿฆƒ/November
A Tale Of Two Cities by Alexandra Warren
A Match Made for Thanksgiving by Jackie Lau
Mating The Huntress by Talia Hibbert

Christmas/December ๐ŸŽ„ ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿฝ
A Tale Of Two Cities
Walking In A Witchy Wonderland
A Wallflower Christmas
The Trouble With Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

Tried to be realistic ๐Ÿ˜‚ Takes me about 1 week/book ๐Ÿ˜‰ Not ready to start yet, still reading From Duke Till Dawn, then The Highwayman, before I can start

Iโ€™ll read them in this order:

  1. Mating The Huntress by Talia Hibbert โœ…
  2. A Tale Of Two Cities by Alexandra Warren (Thanksgiving) โœ…
  3. A Match Made for Thanksgiving by Jackie Lau
  4. Mistletoe Christmas by Eloisa James, Cristi Caldwell, Janna MacGregor, Erica Ridley โœ…

A Tale Of Two Cities by Alexandra Warren are multiple holiday novellas, Iโ€™ve already read the Halloween ๐ŸŽƒ one here ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ

Bang In The Night ๐ŸŒƒ

Tried to put more Halloween-y reads up top and more Christmas-y reads toward the bottom ๐Ÿ˜‰

Realistically, canโ€™t start this until after The Highwayman and The Earl Takes All ๐Ÿ˜‰

Iโ€™ll read them in this order:

  1. Walking In A Witchy Wonderland
  2. A Wallflower Christmas
  3. A Tale Of Two Cities (Christmas & New Yearโ€™s Eve)
  4. Keeping Christmas by Brandy Shaw

Wednesday

Started it on a Wednesday with Mating The Huntress because Iโ€™ve still got Halloween feels ๐Ÿ˜‹ This is my 1st Talia Hibbert. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ This novella has been recommended to me multiple times ๐Ÿ˜‹

Thursday

Reading sprints at 11 am! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ Love reading sprints! Reading more Mating The Huntress!

Spent the day โ€œreadingโ€ got to Chapter 5, 55% through the ebook before switching to A Wonton Wager by Grace Callaway on audio. Got to Chapter 8 21% through the audiobook ๐Ÿ˜‰

Friday

Resumed reading Mating The Huntress by Talia Hibbert . I think Iโ€™ll do what I did yesterday ๐Ÿค” read Mating The Huntress then switch over to A Wonton Wager on audiobook tonight. ๐Ÿ˜

Got my flu shot ๐Ÿ’‰! See my post for it!

Flu shot ๐Ÿ’‰

Saturday

Eventful day ๐Ÿ˜ with little reading ๐Ÿ˜‚ But I think I needed thatโ€ฆ

Sunday

Resumed reading Mating The Huntress, maybe Iโ€™ll finally finish today ๐Ÿ˜‚ Early thanksgiving lunch ๐Ÿ™‚ with my family โค๏ธ Day hanging out with my partnerโ€™s family โ™ฅ๏ธ

Monday

Woke up early and discovered how to add links onto Instagram stories! It could revolutionize my Instagram Story Game! ๐Ÿค— Finished-reading Mating The Huntress,, then got to make my Goodreads review (which I love doing)

Realized after the fact, the quotes I love arenโ€™t here, theyโ€™ll be here ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘‡

Next up! A Tale Of Two Cities by Alexandra Warren the Thanksgiving novella! Enjoyed the Halloween ๐ŸŽƒ one!

Still unsure how Iโ€™ll blog novellas ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Think Iโ€™ll blog before and after. Still not sure if Iโ€™ll write a formal book review.

Iโ€™m afraid ๐Ÿ˜ฑ of saying too much!

Before

Read Amazon synopses: For actress Aspen Watson, all it takes is a trip back to her hometown for Thanksgiving for her to realize that sometimes home can be where the heart is in more ways than one.

Not much information there but, even though Thanksgivingis a problematic holiday, I love what it stands for.

This holiday is far from being about me, but I had my stroke 11/27/2017 almost 4 years ago. So itโ€™s hard to not share personal experience. Having had a stroke makes you grateful and appreciative!

From the synopsis, think the story is a holiday small town romance. Know the story takes place in 2 cities. I do enjoy small town romances! ๐Ÿค—

See my Goodreads review in the event I have a reaction in between!

According to my kindle, the novella is 10 chapters, with the collection being 392 pages. Also see my Goodreads review!

Again quotes Iโ€™ve inadvertantly missed are here (https://www.instagram.com/s/aGlnaGxpZ2h0OjE3OTU4NjY4ODYzNDcxMDQ3?utm_medium=copy_link)

Saturday

Finished the chapter I left off on, then went back to chapters ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚ because I felt like I was missing something ๐Ÿ˜‚

Determined to get through my holiday TBR, so will start a little early ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธStill reading Her Wanton Wager and One Night Is Never Enough, but eager to start Wicked Deeds On A Winter Night for #BangingThroughTheSnow and HRReadathon (check out my blogs for them ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ)

Also decided wonโ€™t be putting #BangingThroughTheSnow on my Instagram story because, as awesome ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ as the name, its not something I want my nieces and nephews to see

But finishing chapter 14 of One Night Is Never Enough first ๐Ÿ˜‰ Made changes to my # TBR, changed A Mistletoe Christmas to Stacy Reidโ€™s โ€œWicked Deeds On A Winter Nightโ€ from Itโ€™s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Scandal. But need to read My American Duchess by Eloisa James too. Found the audiobook so โ€œWicked Deeds On A Winter Nightโ€ after I make progress ๐Ÿ˜‰

But Iโ€™ll resume A Tale Of Two Cities by Alexandra Warren. We go back to The Max then Aspen gets picked up by Orlando ๐Ÿ˜ They go to Jackie Robinson Park ๐Ÿ˜โšพ๏ธโšพ๏ธโšพ๏ธ Tried to keep scene descriptions vague, intended to help me ๐Ÿ˜‰ โšพ๏ธโšพ๏ธ

Will be reading (blogging and sharing more ๐Ÿ˜‚

Sunday

Resumed reading! Cam up with a new plot denotion: โšพ๏ธ. Since I like rereading those scenes ๐Ÿ˜‹

โšพ๏ธ – kiss ๐Ÿ˜˜

โšพ๏ธโšพ๏ธ – hand/mouth ๐Ÿ˜‹

โšพ๏ธโšพ๏ธโšพ๏ธ – home run ๐Ÿ˜‚

And we left of at โšพ๏ธโšพ๏ธ in Aspenโ€™s hotel room ๐Ÿ˜ Realized I never read before the part where they first got to Aspenโ€™s hotel room ๐Ÿค” so glad I went back 2 chapters ๐Ÿ˜‰ Appreciate how the plot is easy to follow ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ A Tale Of Two Cities is 5 novellas: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Yearโ€™s Eve, and Valentines day. After this holiday season, plan to have read 4/5 novellas. So far Thanksgiving is connected to Halloween by Aspen and Lincoln being old high school classmates ๐Ÿค” How will the others connect?

After

I donโ€™t read many contemporary, language is something I note. I understand this prose is true to the culture itโ€™s based in, but I donโ€™t use that language. But the language I use that aligns with the prose, made me laugh ๐Ÿ˜‚ The storyline was fairly predictable – celebrity comes home for the holidays and falls in love ๐Ÿ˜ You get whatโ€™s to be expected ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‡

Planning to time my reading with the Historical Romance Readathon: Holiday Edition for A Wallflower Christmas ๐ŸŽ„

Adding Lady Sofiaโ€™s Christmas With by Grace Burrows, A Mistletoe Christmas by by Eloisa James & Christi Caldwell & Janna MacGregor & Erica Ridley, A Mistletoe Kiss by Eloisa James in A Mistletoe Christmas, and Heiress Alone by Sophie Jordan.

Majority of these ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ are novellas ๐Ÿ˜‰

The HR Readathon: Holiday Edition post should go live before this one! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Paused โธ for another book ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿคฃ Not anything new with me ๐Ÿ˜‡

Might just at to my TBR ๐Ÿ˜‚ https://youtu.be/7DYOEHNQ-8Q at 6:57 Stacy Reidโ€™s Itโ€™s Beginning To Look Like Scandal out December 13! ๐Ÿ˜ She wrote one of my favorite books ๐Ÿ“š (My Darling Duke) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Itโ€™s after Thanksgiving so decided to change up my TBR a bit. Finish A Tale Of Two Cities, the thanksgiving novella then move onto Walking In A Witchy Wonderland then A Tale Of Two Cities (Christmas & New Yearโ€™s Eve) ๐Ÿ˜‰ The collection holds 5 novellas, after these holidays Iโ€™d have read 4/5. Not your typical series thatโ€™s connected by siblings. In here, Aspen and Lincoln are old high school friends. How are the subsequent novellas connected ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Just figured out page length!

Halloween – 74 pages

Thanksgiving – 97 pages

Christmas – 76 pages

New Yearโ€™s Eve – 59 pages

Valentineโ€™s Day – 103 pages

Monday

Paused โธ reading holiday romance for the time being ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Excited to resume! Lots of holiday romances to get back to. For my upcoming readathons:

  1. Lady Sofiaโ€™s Christmas List by Grace Burrows (ebook)
  2. A Wallflower Christmas by Lisa Kleypas (ebook)
  3. Heiress Alone by Sophie Jordan (ebook + audio)
  4. Wicked Deeds On A Winter Night by Stacy Reid (ebook)
  5. A Mistletoe Christmas (audio)
  6. Walking In A Witchy Wonderland by Juliette Cross (ebook)+ audio)
  7. A Tale Of Two Cities by Alexandra Warren (ebook)

Rough list ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ Still subject to change ๐Ÿ˜‰

Chilly today cold ๐Ÿฅถ Just wanted to stay in bed and read ๐Ÿ˜‚ Will read Lady Sofiaโ€™s Christmas List first! Have the ebook ๐Ÿ“–

Tuesday

New day, same book ๐Ÿ˜‚ Still reading Lady Sofiaโ€™s Christmas List first! Have the ebook Read up to Chapter 4 (17% of the book). Will resume tomorrow. Jumping to my audiobook of My American Duchess.

Wednesday

Resumed Lady Sophieโ€™s Christmas Wish. Found the audiobook on Hoopla but it doesnโ€™t let us skip chapters ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Reading is going slowly (1 chapter today)

Thursday

Since Iโ€™ve found Lady Sophieโ€™s Christmas Wish on audio, starting a new read today ๐Ÿ˜‰ Stacy Reidโ€™s Wicked Deeds On A Winter Night from Itโ€™s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Scandal, which Iโ€™m excited ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ˜ฌ for ๐Ÿค— I felt a push since 2 of my favorite bookstagrammers were talking about Stacy Reid ๐Ÿ˜ Sometimes I feel social media talks to me ๐Ÿ˜‚ Realized today, my usual Sunday reading blog-book review-life update combination might not be fone this week ๐Ÿฅฒ but itโ€™s okay ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ because my Historical Romance Readathon: Holiday Edition and Banging In The Snow posts should go live eventually ๐Ÿ˜‰

Realized since Iโ€™m not doing a reading blog (too short) and book review, Iโ€™ll take notes ๐Ÿ“ here. Itโ€™ll just be characters and places (for me too ๐Ÿ˜‹) ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ shorter chapters

Friday
