A Bibliophile’s Pile (50): Christmas Day

 Read

Paddington Abroad by Michael Bond (Library / audiobook)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hijinks as Paddington travels to France. Viva la bear!

Greenglass HouseGreenglass House by Kate Milford
(audiobook / library / with kids)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

We love this book! Milo and his family are fantastic (Parents who aren’t dead or absent? Yes, please!), the smugglers are fascinating, and Greenglass House itself feels like a character. The Christmastime setting made it a perfect choice for this month, but it’s not *so* Christmas-y that it couldn’t be enjoyed year round.

Paddington at Large by Michael Bond

Love!

Paddington Marches OnPaddington Marches On by Michael Bond
(audiobook / library)
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve enjoyed my Paddington marathon no end! It has been the perfect no stress reading for the week before Christmas. Now, I’m ready for something different for a bit.

The Complete Novels of Jane Austen (Heirloom Collection)The Complete Novels of Jane Austen by Jane Austen
(physical / own / re-read)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There are no separate entries for the individual books in this collection, but I have no hesitation in given by the collection 5 stars after re-reading Persuasion. Captain Wentworth and Anne Elliot are amazing characters! The illustrations in this collection are breathtaking.
