Review: A Very Merry Witchmas

A Very Merry Witchmas A Very Merry Witchmas by Ani Gonzalez
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I probably should have started with book 1. That is what I would recommend to anyone who is looking at this book and hasn’t read the series. I read it as part of my Christmas reading. I enjoyed the book. I was surprised by it. It was more than I expected. However I did wish I had started it at the beginning. I will now have to do that as I did enjoy it. My recommendation is read it but in the order of the series.

Review: Skipping Christmas

Skipping Christmas Skipping Christmas by John Grisham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Delightful Christmas story. The movie Christmas with the Kranks was made from this book. This is one of the few book/movie combos where I enjoyed the movie more. The ending felt rushed, which kind of makes sense as once Blair calls the day becomes extremely rushed. This is where I feel the movie was better. The book is definitely worth reading though, especially during the holiday season. It contains a good message on how much we tend to spend on Christmas and, more importantly, why we do it. There are some good laughs and a few heartwarming moments. A good Christmas book.

December 20, 2018 I listened to the Audible version. I loved it! Oddly, listening to it, I did not feel the ending was rushed as I did when reading it myself. I guess the narrator was better than my voice. It was a joy to listen to and I plan to listen again next Christmas.

Review: The Caller

The Caller The Caller by Dan Krzyzkowski
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was holding my breath so often while reading this! A few times I found myself with tears on my face. I was so drawn into the story. I read it in one sitting over night. It kept me on edge with a twist I didn’t see coming. I would recommend it.

Review: A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I cherish A Christmas Carol. I have read this book so many times over the years. It is my Christmas favorite. This Audible addition with Tim Curry as narrator was awesome! He did a fabulous job bringing the tale to life. I will be listening to this again and again. I recommend this version.
