#blogmas day 14

What to read during the Christmas season is a big topic. There are so many books out there to choose from, ranging from religious, spiritual, nonfiction, and fiction. This is the first year I know so many reading the same book. 19th Christmas by James Patterson. It’s been a while since I’ve read a James Patterson book. I feel like I’d be missing out if I didn’t jump on this bandwagon.

All is quiet in San Francisco this season. Crime is down. Newspapers still must be filled. Journalist Cindy Thomas is on assignment to write the true meaning of the season for San Francisco. I thought how appropriate. As I am doing my evaluation of what Christmas is to me.

19th Christmas is a fiction Patterson book. Loman is the crazy protagonist unleashing threats by the hour. Cindy Thomson has much more to cover as crime picks up.

I’ll circle back to finish this book review soon. Christmas is about friends, family, community. I’m looking forward to starting this book.

Many of my friends are already well on the 19th of December. I can’t wait to find out why this book is so popular. My reading community is a big part of my life. Reading this will be fun comparing our views on the 19th of December.

Merry Christmas!

#blogmas Day 13

I love doing the Christmas countdown. I do one on January 1. 365 news days to make great, even when they are far from it. I sporadically put up countdowns. Christmas does not sneak up on anyone I know. In the middle of summer a reminder of Christmas is fun although some complain. I’m not rushing the season. It happens every year at the same time. I have fun with Christmas Countdowns.

The Notebook of Doom Day of the Night Crawlers Book Two in The Notebook of Doom by Troy Cummings.


Alexander and his friends Rip, and Nikki digs deeper into the monster world which exists in their town, Stermont. Alexander is the main character. He found a notebook about monsters. New to town Al doesn’t know what to make of this mysterious notebook which helped the trio handle the Balloon Monsters in book One. Book two answers questions as well as battles a new monster. There are new monster hunters in Stermont now.

The Notebook of Doom series is an early chapter independent reading book. 89 pages broken into 16 chapters. Entertaining illustrations throughout that spice things up. This series is my third-grade nephew’s favorite series.
