I’m very excited for Christmas, although honestly I’m most excited about catching up on some sleep and eating at normal hours on an actual table instead of in front of my laptop. This week’s Sunday Snuggle is probably not up-to-date because I last updated it on Friday (since I was on a trip and wanted to be a bit off grid), and it’s possible I started/finished other books in the meantime. But on the next SS I will add those 🙂
Oh, by the way, I am now one year older! Next year I turn 30! I wonder if I’ll be able to magically wake up 6am without complaining or procrastinating by then. (mom, what do you think?)
This week I got:
I’ve read the other two books already and I’m quite excited to finish this series! There are so many series unfinished on my TBR that I have yet to add all the books to… it’s nice to finish one, for a change!
From Edelweiss, I received:
I somehow completely forgot I’d requested The Truth About Keeping Secrets, but I’m excited for it! And A Beautiful Crime sounds delicious (and I forgot to add it to my Upcoming 2020 Releases I’m Looking Forward To post)
Weekly Wrap Up
The Tiger’s Wife by Téa Obreht / Review ★★★★☆
I ended up really enjoying this one! It’s a really beautiful book and I’m considering getting a physical copy (I had borrowed it from the library)
Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston / Review ★★★★☆
This is ADORABLE. I absolutely loved it.
The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black / Goodreads Ongoing
I listened to the last book of the trilogy, and I do recommend the audio version! It’s really well done. I’m about 60 or 70% through and honestly not much has happened… it feels like this book could have been just a few extra chapters on the last one. But it’s a good book, it’s just rather uneventful.
In the Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado / Review★★★★★
I loved this book. It was such a brilliant and painful read. I considered giving it 4 stars but in the end, it’s such a masterful work, so heartbreaking and left a really strong impression on me – also it was the best non-fiction I’ve read all year – so 5 stars it is!
The Electric Heir (Feverwake#2) by Victoria Lee / Goodreads Ongoing
I’ve actually read a few pages more of this and I’m…. losing interest. I am really sorry for that, and I’ll actually give this another chance, but much like with the first book, I like the idea of it more than the actual book. I also don’t love the writing. But I think I’ll give it another chance during the holidays!
Stay Sexy & Don’t Get Murdered: The Definitive How-To Guide by
I went a bit crazy and started ANOTHER book so I think I have like, 6 current reads. But I felt like something non-fiction after finishing In the Dream House, and I owned this already, so thought it would be a fun, light read. And it is! I don’t love it, but it’s fun and quick to get through.
Mansfield Park by Jane Austen / Goodreads Ongoing

Bibliophile by Jane Mount / Goodreads Ongoing
