December Reflections 2018

December was … fun, tenderhearted, busy, and full of books!  It was a time of holiday and birthday fun. Our son and grandson both have birthdays between Christmas and New Year’s Day, so we have a week of celebrations each year!  December was also “tenderhearted” because it was the first Christmas without my Mom. Of course it is always completely busy with holiday preparations and last minute gift shopping. And this holiday was full of books for each family member!

Despite the busy-ness of the month, I loved my reading and finished thirteen books (and am about halfway through my Classics Club “spin” book, Americanah, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche). The December book I enjoyed the most was The Outermost House, by Henry Beston. A close second was Zora and Me, by Victoria Bond and T.R. Simon. It’s a fictional account of the childhood of Zora Neale Hurston for middle grade students. A Literary Christmas, full of delightful traditional holiday stories, was a fun audiobook to listen to while running all those errands. All in all, it was a very nice reading month.

I hope you all had a warm and book-filled December, too, my friends!

    I am hoping, hoping that in 2019, I will write about my books monthly. The only AT fiction book I’ve read is Animal Instincts and I’ve read it twice! I think you would like it. I will look into this one.

      Nan, this was the first AT book I’ve read, although I have his book about Queen Elizabeth on my Kindle, but haven’t read it yet. This one was a sweet story. I didn’t love it, but did enjoy it.

      Les, yes it was a tender holiday, but we had a lovely family time. Grandson was with us the whole week, and that was joyful. “Bittersweet” was the word my Grandma always used.
