The Christmas Bake Off

26 days until Christmas Eve and I managed to read two stories. Big wow. *addirony*

At least I managed to get some reading done while life was absolutely crazy, so here is my second review.

I read The Christmas Bake Off by Abby Clements. The download's for free for your Kindle on Amazon.

It is a short story about, well, a Christmas Bake Off. It is indeed pretty short. Surprisingly short, to be honest, but it was a quic and nice read. I would have liked some more of it, because the storyline was good and would have made a nice novella. I especially liked the recipes at the end, which sound really, really good.

Well, that's all I can say. If you'd like to spend half an hour with some nice writing, download this story and have fun.

Happy Reading!

Okay, I wanted the first review up on November, 1st. But then I had to work crazy hours and we had a stomach bug in our family, so that was that.

All that made it difficult to find the time to read, plus I had started on a book that didn't get me hooked. So here comes my opinion, which cannot be called a review.

The book was Twelve Days of Christmas by Trisha Ashley.It's more chicklit than romance, which my anglophile self usually loves a lot. I started reading with high expectations and maybe that was the point why it all went wrong. I am into 2/3 of the book and I am not ending it. It started out good. But then after the first hundred pages it got soooo boring. I knew where all that was leading and it took the author years to come to the point. At least that's how I felt it. Maybe you have another opinion and that's fine, but the book didn't work for me and I wouldn't recommend it.

Maybe I am more lucky with book number 2: The Christmas Bake Off by Abby Clements, a short story. I'll keep you updated.

Love, Sanna
