Grab your hot cocoa and those fuzzy socks (you know the ones we’re talking about), along with your Winter and Holiday themed books because the Ho-Ho-Ho read-a-thon has begun. Kimba and I are so excited to be here with you and we look forward to our own holiday reads. Typically, romance isn’t my thang, but wrap that romance novel up with a big red bow and I’m sold!  This year, we once again have some fab Elves who are hosting some challenges during the event.  And don’t forget about the Twitter Party (deets below).  Make sure you are linked up and see official rules.  Ho-Ho-Ho read-a-thon link-up.

Jennifer’s Goals

  I have four books from last year languishing on my Netgalley shelf that I want to get to first!  I also have one audiobook from Brilliance Audio!  That will be my first Christmas audio ever.  So we’ll see how it all goes!


  A Billionaire for Christmas A Seaside Christmas   Sleigh Belles; The Christmas He Loved her Under the Mistletoe with me

Completed: The Christmas He Loved Her by Juliana Stone An Heiress for All Seasons (The Debutante Files #1.5) by Sophie Jordan Mistletoe Magic (Copper Mountain Christmas #3) by Melissa McClone   Still reading/listening Under the Mistletoe with Me by Kristen Proby (50% done)   Considering my mom flew in the day after the HoHoHoRAT started, I think I did pretty well!  Thanks to everyone who participated, as well as our challenge hosts!

The following two tabs change content below.
Jennifer is both a book nerd and professional photographer. That means she lives in the fantasy world all the time, whether of her making, or someone else's. She collects books like the Duggar family collects kids, and began waiting for her Hogwarts letter at the tender age of 33.

  1. I started my audio book this morning. I should get it finished at work today. Then I’ll move on to a novella tonight. I’m off tomorrow so I’m hoping to get more read this year than I did last year.

  2. Is this where we are supposed to put our Post from the first day listing the challenge and what we are going to read – our goals? It’s not too clear, and I didn’t see this until Day 2 because it’s not clear up above. I left a message for you and Caffeinated Book Reviewer and tagged you on my blog and on your Facebook pages b/c I couldn’t figure out where to link-up at yesterday. Today I accidentally scrolled down, and here is a link-up but I don’t know if it’s for the challenges or for our goals post?? Here’s my link: Sorry about my confusion. Thanks, Laurie
