Weekly Update: December 21-27, 2020

Happy Sunday, bibliophiles, and happy holidays! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.

KSAT Weather: Cloudy skies, drizzle, fog by Christmas Day. Strong storms  after Christmas

I finally got all my finals over with on Monday, and now I’m on break for a little while! After the flaming ball of stress and confusion this semester has been, I’m so grateful for some time off.

I had a kind of hit-or-miss library haul this week, but there were definitely some gems in there. And Christmas was this Friday, and I got some amazing books, as well as a gift card to a local bookstore, so I’m super excited! (My brother also got me Minecraft, and I’ve been having way too much fun with it…he’s the best)

I’ve started editing my sci-fi WIP as well, which has been…interesting, to say the least. Somehow, my writing on that first draft fluctuates from “okay, I actually like this” to “dear lord, this is a dumpster fire.” There is no in between. None.

I forgot to mention in my last post that I’d be missing another Book Review Tuesday because yesterday was Christmas, so…sorry about the lack of BRTs this month. But! Not to worry, Book Review Tuesday celebrates its 3rd anniversary this Saturday, so I’ll be doing the last Book Review Tuesday of 2018 then. Sheesh, this year has gone by so fast…

Anyway, happiest of holidays to you all! See you on Saturday!

Curiosity House-The Screaming Statue

Pippa, Thomas, Max, Sam, and the whole gang are back!

After the debacale with Nicholas Rattigan a few months earlier, the residents of Dumfrey’s Dime Museum of Freaks, Oddities, and Wonders are recovering, but impending doom is lurking-the museum may go out of business! Then, their friend and world-reknowned sculpter Siegfried Eckleberg (aka “Freckles”) is murdered. And this murder may even be tied to another murder of a rich New York resident, as well as their own lives. Can they solve the murder? And what does Howie, the “human Owl”, have to do with anything?

 

If you read and liked The Shrunken Head,  you are GUARANTEED to like this book too! Bye for now, and happy holidays to all of you! 😉
