Inspired by the many weekly memes that book-bloggers use to talk about books — whether it’s one that’s not yet released or one that’s been sitting in their to-be-read piles for years.
~~ & ~~
To kicked off my new weekly feature, I should explain why I decided to create one instead of just joining the many different memes out there. Simple. I wanted just one weekly meme that was flexible. With this feature, I can plan out a theme for a month, I can talk about an upcoming release or something that’s been sitting on my shelves for years, or I can talking about a series as a whole or an author.
So, with that out of the way. . .
The theme for the next four weeks will be. . .
Christmas! (like you couldn’t tell from the post title)
The first book I picked is written by one of my favorite Harlequin Historical writers. It was published in 2011 and it is one of the books I didn’t get to during last year’s Christmas reading challenge (I’m way behind reading category romances and I hope to rectify that in the new year). As you can tell by the title, the author based the story on Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. I’m looking forward to reading it.
Other Christmas-themed books by this author (linked to my review):
