It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (11.25.13)

It’s Monday What Are you Reading , hosted by Sheila, is the perfect way for me to begin my week and allows me to focus on what needs to be read and to see what I have or have not accomplished the previous week. I also enjoy discovering new books by visiting other participants blogs.
While I'm looking forward to having Thanksgiving here at my house this year, I'm more excited to break out the Christmas-scented candles on December 1st...which is next Sunday!!! I love my cinnamon and peppermint scented candles and really try very hard to refrain from burning them until after Thanksgiving. (Plus, this year, I'm still trying to finish burning all my pumpkin spice candles.) I won't start the full-out decorating until the next weekend, but just getting the house smelling like Christmas is enough for me! Add in the cold weather we've been having and it makes for the perfect reading recipe = good smelling candle burning, cozy blanket, cuppa tea and a good book!

What about you?  What does your reading week look like this week?  Whatever it is, happy reading and have a good week!


  1. I like the mix of reads here. Christmassy enough to get into the spirit.

  2. A great number of reads as usual. Mmm those scents I can almost smell. I always envy those who celebrate the Christmas season in the colder climates. Last year we had high temps on 25th and we could only crawl about!

  3. I love scented candles all year round but cinnamon, cloves and gingerbread spices at Christmas time get me in the Christmas spirit ... and eggnog and a good book lol. Enjoy your new reads :)

  4. A lot of people are reading Christmas books! Enjoy your week!

  5. Your Christmas candles sound wonderful! Enjoy....I'm curious about The Wrong Girl.


  6. I have some Christmas scented candles from Bath and Body Works as well as wall plug-ins that I save for the holidays.It really does add to the Christmas feeling.

    I read Candlelight Christmas this past week too. I was in the mood to do some holiday reading. The radio stations in my area are already playing Christmas music too.

    Have a happy Thanksgiving!

  7. I'm looking forward to decorating (I've started a little!) Have a great week!

  8. Am so looking forward to getting the christmas stuff up too. Enjoy your week and Thanksgiving, hope you get some reading done between all the family stuff!
