What up, what up my loves?! Happy Wednesday! It’s been awhile since I’ve gotten a #WhatUpWednesday post up… so let’s jump right in!
What I’m Reading
All the Christmas books! I’ve read some AMAZING books these past few weeks. So here is a teeny tiny mini book review for you.
In a Holidaze. I LOVED this book. I know it has a super cliche plot but really… who doesn’t love a good cliche at Christmas time? This unexpectedly spicy Christmas novel was about a girl named Maelyn who is stuck in the same Christmas weekend over and over a la Groundhog Day. The end was super cute and expected but also a little surprising. I loved this one. Two thumbs up!
The Holiday Swap. This one is a Hallmark movie in book form. It’s got a cute charming small town bakery, a big LA star, all the Christmasy touches and twins! I loved this book. I thought it was so cute.
Christmas in Dixie. Okay. I hate giving bad book reviews. Because I know someone poured their heart and soul into said book and I never want to take that away from them. However, I did not like this book. It went from bad to worse. I picked it because it was described as Sweet Home Alabama meets National Lampoons Christmas Vacation with a touch of Hart of Dixie. Three shows/movies I LOVE. However, this book felt like a cheap knock off of it. I was sad… a southern Christmas sounded like the exact kind of story I’d love to read. I did finish (I refuse to not finish a book) it, but even the ending couldn’t save it for me. 😒
A Holly Jolly Diwali. I LOVED THIS BOOK. It was so good. It was a love story but also about a girl finding herself and not like compromising who she was for love. It wasn’t a “swoon worthy romance. But it was festive and had twists and turns that kept me wondering what would happen next. And I finished it and immediately wanted a second book because I feel like I need to know what happened to them when *spoiler* they started their new life together in LA.
I’m currently reading A Cross Country Christmas and have Christmas in Peachtree Bluff on deck!
What I’m drinking
I can’t get enough of the sugar cookie latte from Starbucks! I actually saw a TikTok about how to make them at home and I totally want to try it this weekend if I have time!
What I’m Watching
Nothing new. I started rewatching new girl whil I was cleaning one day and that’s all we’ve been watching since. 😂
What I’m Listening To
Red (Taylor’s Version) all day. Every day. Specifically the 10 minute version of All Too Well. I really didn’t think there was any way should could make my all time favorite Taylor Swift song better but she did. And I can’t stop listening to it on repeat!
What I’m Buying
All the stuff for Thanksgiving! We’re hosting at our house this year and we’ve got a lot to get done this weekend before our guests arrive. I’ve already got a pile of things we need for turkey day in our den but I keep thinking of more things I have to pick up this weekend. 🤦🏽♀️ It’s going to be a busy couple of days!
What Else is New
So my loves, what’s up in your lives?!
I’m hoping to get a quick post up for you tomorrow… but I’ve got a Zoom CPR re-certification class tomorrow night. So we’ll see. If I don’t talk to you before Friday, have THE BEST weekend.
