Brought to you by Sheila at Book Journey!
I spent the weekend Christmas shopping local in Detroit! Saturday morning was the Detroit Urban Craft Fair, where I bought a few things for my husband Billy, as well as a little something for my friend Justin and sister in law Chrissy. Later in the evening, I went to Noel Night downtown, and found just the present I was looking for, for my little brother! It was a great time.
I also bought a little something for me:
Isn't this little baby skunk adorable!! My sister in law bought me a raccoon to go with him. I bought her the squirrel. We were with each other, so it's ok to say it on here. :) Everything in the store is super cute!
Read Last Week:
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott: Ah the March family. What a great introduction to the holiday season. Review, such as it is, will be up Tuesday.
Candlelight Christmas by Susan Wiggs: I think this book ended much better than it began. Review Wednesday.
Reading This Week:
Night of Cake and Puppets by Laini Taylor: Love this series, in particular the character Zuzanna, so I am excited to read this short story that focuses on her and Mik!
Snow Day: I am hoping for some snow soon - maybe reading this book will help?
Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton: I read about this book twice over the weekend - once in an article of classic books so short you should read them and once in an article of the 12 books that will get you in the holiday spirit. It is described as intense and tragic, which is why I am going to read it with some fluffy books for balance.
