I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted by Kim of Caffeinated Book Reviewer and The Sunday Salon (TSS) hosted by Deb Nance of Readerbuzz where participants recap our week, talk about what we are reading, share any new books that have come our way, and whatever else we want to talk about. I am also linking It's Monday! What Are you Reading? hosted by Kathryn of Book Date where readers talk about what they have been, are and will be reading.
My family and I are laid up with the flu. Poor Mouse ran an extremely high temperature for several days, but she seems to be on the other side of it now. We all feel pretty miserable still. Our Christmas tree may still be sans lights and decorations, but I thought I would share some of the beautiful themed trees we saw at the Festival of Trees over Thanksgiving weekend.
Which of these trees do you like best? If you put up a tree for the holidays, do you decorate it by theme?
I recently finished reading The Dark Archive (Invisible Library #7) by Genevieve Cogman and The Banned Bookshop of Maggie Banks by Shauna Robinson. Although very different types of books, they both held me in suspense. Would Librarian Irene find a way out of her current predicament and be able to save her friends from an old enemy? The stakes were never higher. And at every turn I held my breath in fear Maggie would get caught, her underground efforts to save her friend's bookstore would all be for naught.
