Reading RoundUp #47

Who else is ridiculously thrilled that the holiday season is already starting?? Anyone?? Everyone keeps talking about how insane it is that Thanksgiving is only a week away and I am all for it! As the nights get shorter, here’s what I’m reading while curled up in bed…at 8pm. Also I’m linking up with Jana Says and Modern Mrs Darcy’s Quick Lit!


This week’s Reading Roundup!

Work Book (for lunch time reading):

The Christmas Surprise by Jenny Colgan – I just devoured Book #2 in the Rosie Hopkin’s Sweetshop series, so on to #3. Both are Christmas themed, which makes me so happy. In my eyes, Colgan can do no wrong!


House Books:

Marilla of Green Gables by Sarah McCoy – I reviewed this one over on Literary Quicksand as part of a book tour, but couldn’t help sharing it here. I just adored this story which delves into Marilla’s history. It fits in perfectly as a prequel to the Anne of Green Gables series. I highly recommend! 


eBooks (reading on Scribd):

It by Stephen King – I was flying through this but stalled out at 45% two weeks ago. You see, Jay was heading out on a business trip, so I knew I couldn’t read it while he was gone. I stopped a few days before he left…and still had a dream about Pennywise the first night he was gone. Terrifying. I slept with my light on the rest of the night – I know, it was pathetic. Now he’s home, time to get back into it!


From Around the Web:

    Did you read book #1 in the Sweetshop Series first, or just the 2nd Christmas one? Looks great, but wondering if you have to read in order.

    Have you read 11/22/63? King puts it in the same town as It with the same characters in the background. I never read It though!

    I can’t mess around with scary books or tv shows when my bf is not home or right before bed!

    I’m so excited to read Marilla. I just got it from the library, and I’m hoping to get it for a fellow Anne fan for Christmas, so I’m glad it lived up to your high expectations!

    Yes. Bring on the holidays. Haul out the holly, put up the tree before my spirits fall again, etc etc.

    I’m considering reading all Christmas-themed books in December and I did love Colgan’s Beach Street Bakery book!
