    Oh your holiday pics are lovely!! Seems like you had a wonderful time. And you still managed to do a lot of blogging… Wow! Good for you.

    The Christmas Murder Game is definitely on my radar now. Will take a look at your review and on Goodreads.

    Have a good week and happy reading.

      Thank you. I did a lot of blogging over the past few weeks and then scheduled it so I did have a bit of a break 😊

      It is a great book. The fact that it’s Christmas is just an added bonus!

      Thank you. You too 😊

    My husband just learned that his family is originally from Wales. Thank you for sharing photos from this beautiful place. Perhaps we will go there one day.

    Circe is such a fascinating character. Somehow Madeline Miller knows how to make non-human character feel extraordinarily different from humans.

    Have a lovely week, Emily!

      Wow! I love it when things like that come to light. I highly recommend it. Be warned though the weather is wet. And that is putting it mildly!! So take lots of layers and waterproofs!!

      It is clever from that point of view. I am struggling with it a bit though. It is taking a bit too long for me. I don’t know why.

      You too 😊

    Emily, Paris in July had a signup post on Tamara’s Thyme for Tea blog, but she also did weekly linkups. If you would like me to add your posts for Paris in July to my summary of the month, send me your links: debnance at gmail dot com. I’d be happy to add them!

    Your photos are gorgeous! I can’t believe how beautiful it is in north Wales. I’m embarrassed to say that we lived in the UK for 4 years and we never visited Wales. I’ll have to go there sometime for a visit.

      Thank you. It took me a while too considering how old I am. It is such a beautiful place. The thing is it’s like I want to go on holiday abroad so you sort of forget what’s on your doorstep (well ish as it took many hours to drive there!). It is very wet so you need waterproofs. But it is beautiful so worth it.

      Thank you. That’s exciting. It started off well for me then it lost my interest. I have no idea why. I hope she enjoys it though 🙂 I quite liked really studying a book because you get to learn things that you would have never thought of on your own.
