The first book I finished this week was A Christmas Story which I unfortunately didn’t enjoy all that much. I read the last 3 books as part of the #shortathon18 that I am participating in until the end of the month. We are just supposed to read the shortest books on our TBRs to help us reach those Goodreads goals and to help those who struggle with time to read this time of year. I actually already reached my goal for the year but I wanted to support Kathy and Destiny. So far I have finished Origin of the Sphinx, Wrecked, and The Green Mile which were all under 100 pages.

I’m a little over halfway through The Twelve Days of Dash & Lily and hopefully I will have it finished in the next few days. I actually made some progress with Among Us. I am 31% through it now and I think I’m liking it so far. I’ve been slowly reading these since I am focusing a lot on #shortathon18. As for Dumplin’ I have put it on hold until January. I joined a group on Goodreads called Diverse Divers which was created by Lili and Vinny and the book for January is Dumplin’. I only have 25% percent of the book to finish it but I wanted to participate with the group.
I have been saving this book all month for 2 reasons. One because it is a short book so it works for #shortathon18 and two because I wanted to read it on Christmas Eve so I will be reading this today. I’ve never actually read the book before but I have watched the movie a lot. I am hoping to really like this book because it would be nice to be able to read this every year.
Credit as always to The Book Date. Have you read any of the books I mentioned? What did you think of them if you have? What have you been reading lately? What are your reading plans for the week? What Christmas books have you been reading? Am I the only person in the world who hasn’t read A Christmas Carol before?
