Virtual Advent Tour 2022

Happy St. Nicholas Day! I hope you survived Krampusnacht unscathed and that you awoke this morning (or, come home later today) to find your shoes full of goodies.

Today, we get to do some touring! Raidergirl3 at an adventure in reading is the blogger who’s participated most in the Virtual Advent Tour, having joined in its inaugural year, back when Marg and Kailana were running it. That’s how we met, and I joined her on the tour the following December.

Today, she shares some Christmas memories with us, both from her personal life and of her Virtual Advent Tour posts through the years. I hope you check out both.

top ten holiday reads i’d like to get to this season
posted by soe 1:57 am

Since this week is a freebie week for Top Ten Tuesday at That Artsy Reader Girl I thought I’d share some holiday books I’m hoping to read this season.

But first, if you haven’t been reading this year’s Virtual Advent Tour, make sure you check out fellow bibliophile raidergirl3’s post for today. Want to join in the fun? We’d love some additional participants, and you can do things like share a book or film review, a recipe, or favorite tradition. Sign-ups are here.

Now, here’s my holiday list, all of which I own, are checked out from the library, or I reasonably expect will come in from holds:

  1. The Holiday Swap by Maggie Knox (grown-up The Parent Trap meets professional holiday baking)
  2. Christmas by the Book by Anne Marie Ryan
  3. Holly Jolly Diwali by Sonya Lalli
  4. Deck the Donuts by Ginger Bolton
  5. Whiteout by Dhonielle Clayton, Tiffany D. Jackson, Nic Stone, Angie Thomas, Ashley Woodfolk, and Nicola Yoon
  6. Eight Nights of Flirting by Hannah Reynolds
  7. The Christmas Clash by Suzanne Park
  8. The Usual Santas edited by Peter Lovesey
  9. 10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston
  10. The Stars Beneath Our Feet by David Barclay Moore

How about you? Do you have any seasonal reading planned?
