It’s Monday


Happy Monday!

Wow is this month just zooming by or what. I guess the late arrival of Thanksgiving has really thrown me off.

I don’t quite feel ready for Christmas yet. How about you?

We did put up our Christmas tree already and I’ve bought some gifts but not everything yet.


Here’s some stuff we did last week…



We went to an all-you-can-eatKorean BBQ.

 I’ve been making cookies. Matcha shortbread and a Chinese-style walnut cookie.

Our Christmas tree and decorations are up! And I made this Christmas pudding amigurumi to go along with it.




The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova


Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane



Sugar Rush Christmas and The Mandalorian!



On the Move by Oliver Sacks



Raisin bread for breakfast



Tea with milk. I recently found a three-box of Tetley tea at Costco and decided to try it. Luckily for me, it’s quite strong!



Last week:

I read:

Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations – Mira Jacob (5*)

An excellent read! I hope to write a proper post about this one!

Mouthful of Birds – Samantha Schweblin (3*)

I was very confused…

Gods of Jade and Shadow -Silvia Moreno-Garcia (4*)
I really enjoyed this one. I liked the setting of Mexico in the Jazz Age and the fascinating Mayan gods that I’ve not known much about.

I posted:

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date
