Stacking the Shelves #78: December Book Haul Part 1 and Comic Book Haul #2


Hello my amazing bookish friends!
I hope you are all doing well and are all enjoying some really good reads...

We finally finished decorating our home for the holidays :)
All of our ornaments are little pieces of our lives - there are ornaments from my husband's childhood, some are from when I was a kid too. A few handmade ones from crafty friends, and of course a few from our kids. There are some that mark important milestones in our growing family's lives. And more will be added every year to come. That's our little tradition!


So, it seems that the seasons are a bit mixed up around here. It has been quite chilly, but raining. Raining a lot! I don't think I've every seen it rain so much at this time of the year. It has really dampened my mood... (see what I did there, lol!) I want snow! And, I hope to get some of that snow and holiday spirit through a few books that I've tossed into my TBR for this month:
Winterspell, Dash and Lily's Book of Dares, and,
The Christmas Box/The Christmas List...
any other winter books that you'd recommend???

For now, here's my haul for the first half of December :)
