Hello, Jackie here,
Christmas is coming and I’m half stressed out by the present shopping and the other half of me is like ehh whatever. Most of my presents are knitting, which I realize I should’ve started maybe a month or two earlier. Oops. Anyhow, I’m back from my mini vacation in London (thanks Cyn for doing last week’s Sunday post! ^_^) and even though it was only for 4 days I had a ton of fun shopping, eating, and just walking aimlessly about. We also took a day tour to see the Stonehenge and Bath. And oh the Christmas markets were full of knick knacks and homemade items. Every street corner or so there would be Christmas music blaring and while it does drive me crazy back home listen to it on the radio for hours on end, I didn’t mind it. In fact a lot of people were singing along to whatever was playing. So, speaking of Christmas shopping Fortnum and Mason, a tea shop, was nuts and chaotic. Seriously. It was jam packed with people and while I don’t really like crowds it really can’t be helped if you wanted to buy some tea especially when a friend recommended it. As for the weather it rained sometimes but mostly it was just bleak and dreary and overall chilly.

One of the best things I love about London is that they carry their books in paperback format (and bookshops everywhere). I don’t really have a preference to hardcover or paperback, but I love paperbacks a little bit more because of their portability and the fact that I don’t have to worry about bent edges on book jackets and whatnot. I couldn’t resist picking up a few already read books…
1. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
2. Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland
3. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
4. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
5. Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling)
