Hello! After a short break, it’s great to be back and I have lots to share. To start with, my review of the last month of 2022…it already seems far away now.
This month saw the conclusion of the Dark Is Rising Readalong, as well as a new event, Dean Street December, which got me to delve into the backlog on my e-reader. I also managed to finish and post about my last Make Me Read It selection, which was a good accomplishment (and thank you for the incentive). All of these were wonderful reads for the season, along with some other fiction and nonfiction that I picked up along the way.
Have you read any of these? What were your top reads this month?
- How to Order the Universe by María José Ferrada (translated by Elizabeth Bryer) – Around the World
- The Myth of Normal by Gabor Maté
- Apricot Sky by Ruby Ferguson – Dean Street December
- The Country Child by Alison Uttley
- Clothes-Pegs by Susan Scarlett – Dean Street December
- Mrs. Lorimer’s Quiet Summer by Molly Clavering – Dean Street December
- Five Windows by D.E.Stevenson – Dean Street December
- The Magician’s Daughter by H.G. Parry
- Silver on the Tree by Susan Cooper – Dark Is Rising readalong
- The Woods in Winter by Stella Gibbons – Dean Street December
- Accessing the Healing Power of the Vagus Nerve by Stanley Rosenberg
- Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley
- Spindle and Dagger by J. Anderson Coats
Nothing new to report this month, just finishing up the semester with my English students. In January, I want to work on my own German learning … wish me luck with that.
December is always so busy, but this year seemed particularly hectic for some reason. There were performances to take part in and attend, gifts to assemble, holiday celebrations to plan, and when Christmas rolled around, I wasn’t ready for it. My husband received one of a pair of gloves as his present; I hope I can get the other done before winter is over!
Life-related posts I shared this month included:
- I’m now on Mastodon – please follow me here if you are too!
- My Functional Medicine Journey, Part IV: Finished?
- My final One Word post: Everything is connected
How was your holiday? I hope it brought you some peace amidst all the busyness.
