Happy first night of Hanukkah! Here's a sort-of bookish menorah? (I know, there are only eight candles instead of nine. My eternal shame.)🔥
.
.
My dad's side of the family is Jewish, and though we never really celebrated much growing up, my family usually has a special dinner during one of the nights of Hanukkah. .

What's your favorite version of A Christmas Carol? I read the book in high school, but I will forever love the Muppets version. We watched it last night to celebrate the movie's 25th anniversary. (I feel soooo old. I remember seeing that movie in theaters when it first came out!)

I'm #currentlyreading The Afterlife of Holly Chase by Cynthia Hand, which is a fun YA twist on A Christmas Carol. .

What are some of your favorite scents? Two of mine are musk and amber, so when I saw both included in @_iceydesigns's Chaol candle, I pretty much knew I had to have it -- even though I'm still behind in the ToG books. And I have no regrets. The candle is earthy, woodsy, and manly, and I adore it. .

Merry #MapMonday everyone! This beauty is found on the end pages of WINTERSPELL by Claire Legrand, a sexy YA fantasy inspired by The Nutcracker. If you're a fan of the ACOTAR series and you want something festive (but also a little dark and magical), then this book is for you! .
.
Have you seen The Nutcracker performed live? I haven't been to see it live since I was 19, but my favorite performance was by the San Francisco Ballet, which I saw several times growing up before we moved to Oregon. .

Do you prefer regular or magentic bookmarks? I think magnetic ones are SO cute, but I prefer using traditional bookmarks when I read - and most of my favorites are from @dreamyandco ... .
.
Which is why I was SO excited when Angeline asked me to become a rep this month. She has regular AND magnetic bookmarks in her shop, plus some adorable mini prints, and everything is super affordable. Use NOVEL10 to save when you shop.

My absolute #1 favorite book of the year is easily The Book of Dust by Philip Pullman, and I'm so grateful I was able to nab this gorgeous signed edition from @vintagebookshop ... They still have a couple signed copies left, so reach out to them if you want to order one. They will ship! .

So I have now finished both the Grisha trilogy and the SoC duology, and I have to say I much preferred the trilogy. Minor spoilers below ... .
.
I loved the heist aspect of SoC, but I felt like it took a long time to really get to know the characters. And in CK, the pace seemed really slow, the plot a little meandering & meh for much of the book, and then ... Matthias. Matthias & Nina were my favorite part of these books. And I felt like what happened at the end of CK was pointless (and I also question the plausibility of a 14yo slipping past all those guards). So those are my brief thoughts. What about you? Did you prefer the trilogy or the duology?

Never has an enamel pin spoken to me more ... 😂

I've never been a morning person, but it's especially hard the morning after staying up too late to finish reading a book. I finished Crooked Kingsom last night, ya'll and ... I'm not happy. 😡 I definitely preferred the Grisha trilogy to this duology. .
