Reading Challenges

Reading Challenge Weekly Update: Oct 16, 2020

Hello, bookworms 😊
Another updates for the 20 Books for Christmas Reading Challenge hosted by Jo@Tea & Cake for the Soul, let’s see how I did in the second week in the challenge.

Clink the link (or the image) above for more detailed information about the challenge!

I finished two books and am currently reading the third book this week which I’ll talk about later.

Books Finished

As I mentioned in my previous post, I finished Call Me Mrs. Miracle first and then moved on to A Season of Angels by the same author, Debbie Macomber.

I read the both two books respectively 5 and 6 years ago and liked them a lot, but my re-read of Call Me Mrs. Miracle turned out a mixed bag. I still adored the book for sure, but it didn’t give me as much pleasure as it did the last time.

I then went on to read A Season of Angels to refresh my memory about the angels appear in the series.
Little did I know that these two books belong to different series… I thought they both were part of the Angelic Intervention series as Goodreads suggests but I found out Call Me Mrs. Miracle belongs to the Angel series and the latter belong to the Angels Everywhere series 🤦‍♀️

Despite the little hiccups, I ended up liking A Season of Angels as much as I did 5 years ago and am inclined to continue reading the series leading up to Christmas 🎄🎅👼.
My review will be up soon.

Books I am Going to Read Next

As I previously mentioned, I have already picked up Gordon Ramsay: On Top of the World by Neil Simpson and currently halfway through the book.
I have always enjoyed watching his cooking shows smothered with F-bombs and swear words, I would describe him as a person with a cornucopia of expletives 🤣

Some may raise their eyebrows on his extremely foul language but I actually enjoy hearing him swear and despite his television persona, I firmly believe he is actually genuinely kind-hearted and compassionate judging from the endearments he throw at chef hopefuls whom he finds promising and gifted.

That sufficed to draw me to this book which I downloaded quite a long ago, and I am liking it so far.

Next up, I am thinking of reading either of (or both, if I manage to) Christmas at Harrington’s by Melody Carlson or High Cotton by Debby Mayne.

I first discovered High Cotton at Susan@Susanlovesbooks blog and her review immediately grabbed my attention. I had thought I got the book straight away but when I checked out my Kindle shelf the other day I obviously didn’t, so I grabbed my copy last night.

I don’t know what it is, but something about the premise of a family reunion and the beautiful cover screamed at me, urging me it’s time to read it.

Again, being a mood reader, I have no idea in what mood I will be when I have finished Gordon Ramsay and I might pick up totally different books, but at the moment these two books are the most likely candidates to make the cut.

That’s it for today.
Feel free to comment below if you are also participating in the challenge and do let me know what you are reading 🙂

Thank you for stopping by, and I’ll see you in my next post.
Happy reading!

    1. Thanks, Jenn! I finished Ramsay’s book yesterday, it was a nice book to get a glimpse of his life and success 🙂
      Oh dear, your family love him too? He’s got an extremely foul mouth but that’s what I like the most about him lol
