What Are You Reading? ~ Dec. 18th, 2019

What are you Reading?  Let me know what your current read is, what you recently finished reading, and what you plan on reading next! 

Happy Wednesday, friends! Next week is Christmas! Wow! That happened fast! I have all my gifts purchased and almost all wrapped. How about you? 

Current Read

I just started reading The Reluctant Midwife* by Patricia Harman. I love watching the series Call the Midwife, so I thought I might enjoy this. I'm looking forward to getting into it. So far, I think I'm going to like it!

Recently Finished

I recently finished A Wreath of Snow: A Victorian Christmas Novella* by Liz Curtis Higgs. It was a lovely Christmas story of forgiveness. I enjoyed it. 4 stars.

I also finished reading Girl in the Blue Coat* by Monica Hesse. It's 1943 and the Germans, who now occupy Amsterdam, are tightening down on rations. Hanneke finds items for people on the black market. It's illegal, but not too dangerous. Then one of her customers asks for help finding a girl that she was hiding from the Nazi's. She doesn't want to take on the job but also finds she can't say no either. Soon Hanneke finds herself pulled into the resistance and into more than she bargained for. I really enjoy this story. 4 stars. 

 And I finished reading North by Northanger* by Rebecca H. Jamison. It was a cute mash-up or nods to North by Northwest and Northanger Abbey. Set in present-day, the main character, Eva Morland, loves vintage clothing and old movies. Eva is mistaken for someone else and gets kidnapped by some criminals. After she escapes no one believes her. Now not only are the criminals after her but the police too!  The only person who believes her is Grant Tilney, a man she has just met! It's a fun story that did remind me of an old movie. 3.5 stars. 

What's next? 

I'm not sure what's next! I'm going to be with family for Christmas, so I may not read much. But I will let you know!

I hope you all enjoy the upcoming holidays! I'll most likely take a break from blogging for the next couple of weeks. I do have a post up for tomorrow, so look out for that! 

Happy Holidays!
