December was another good reading month with a variety of different books.
A Blitmore Christmas by Diane Ashley, Sylvia Barnes, Rhonda Gibson: This was a short little read to occupy my time on the bus during the trip to Brugge. The book contained 4 short stories, all centering around one of the “Bradford sisters” as they found love working at the Blitmore House for Christmas. It was cute, short and sweet. Not the kind of book I would occupy all my time with, but it was a nice Christmasy read on the bus ride.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows: Imagine my delight to come home to surprise Amazon packages from my Aunt, which contained books! She had picked out two books for me, both with stories taking place in locations that could be seen from London in a weekend. Very neat! Anyway, this book was a really good read. Told in format of letters between the various characters, I flew through it in a matter of days really. The story is about an author living in London after WWII, who starts a correspondence with a group of people who lived in Guernsey during the German Occupation and used books to help them through the hard times.
Max Stops the Presses by Colleen Gleason: Another Colleen Gleason book about the Gardellas! This is a short little story to tie up some unanswered questions from the original series, and set up the path for the new one. I read this on the way to the airport to meet my parents, again it was cute and short. I really love the Gardella Legacy, so it was great getting to read about how the main characters had settled into their lives.
Man in the Iron Mask by Alexander Dumas: I am just well into this sequel now to The Three Musketeers. I have only ever seen the movie, which is ofcourse vastly different from the book. Because I enjoyed The Three Musketeers so much, I took a safe bet that I would enjoy this one as well. So far have not been wrong.
Till next time.
