Merry Christmas to all who celebrated it yesterday!
We had a hectic few days, getting everything done and prepped and then hosting Christmas Day. It was a quiet morning, with just my husband, our younger son, and I having our traditional breakfast and opening presents. Our older son and his girlfriend arrived in the afternoon, my mom and her husband got here a couple of hours later, and our younger son’s girlfriend joined us for a bit. Then, we had a flurry of activity with more presents, Christmas dinner, and then birthday presents and cake (plus pies!) for my mom’s husband’s birthday. It was exhausting but good to have everyone together.

And, most importantly, here are the books we each got for Christmas!

|My new books – it’ll be an Anne Tyler year!

On the Blog
In spite of the hectic week, I was determined to do a little review catch-up. I’m so behind!
TV Tuesday: Kindred – this new TV adaptation of one of my favorite books of the year is outstanding so far!
2 Nonfiction Mini Reviews: Pinball and The Reading Life – quick reviews of a vibrant graphic nonfiction history of pinball and a selection of quotes from C.S. Lewis about books and reading.
Fiction Review: Sea of Tranquility by Emily St. John Mandel – This unique, twisty, captivating story spanning 300 years was even better than my very high expectations!
