This Week’s Reads and Updates: Beasts and Beauty – The Christmas Pig – A Christmas in the Alps and more… #AmReading #Books #Reads

Hey, everyone! I hope you’re all doing well this week. I’m starting to make my way back to posting at least a few times a week. It’s been really nice chatting with everyone and seeing what you have all been up to. If I missed anything big or if there are any particular posts of yours you want me to get caught up on, please feel free to link them below!

In the reading world, I’ve finally finished Shadowsong over the weekend. You can see my review for that one here. This book was on my retelling challenge list. I’m trying with all my might to get caught up with the Retelling Reading Challenge before the year is up. There are only a few more, but sadly one or two may not make the list. It’s definitely not a failure; in fact, I’ve read a total of fourteen retellings this year alone, which is quite good because the original number was ten. I’ll do an update soon on my plans to finish out the challenge. As of now, I’m not sure which book I’ll be grabbing next in the challenge, but it looks like it will either be Circe, or East by Edith Pattou. Check out the link above to see my progress, and feel free to give me recommendations on which one should come next.

We also finished all three books of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. These get five stars from all the kids and me.



This week I’m reading a ton of middle-grade books–two are NetGalley/Edelweiss reads I’m behind on.
