December Countdown: One prompt per day (day 9 - 10)

Thursday, December 10, 2020

We simply just don't get to doing this on a daily basis! Yesterday was my Mommy's birthday and it was a day of fun and games all the way to midnight. She's 42 now and hopefully we will learn the meaning of life and everything else in the next year. Wondrous Words (numbers) Wednesday - 42

My mommy needs a bit of recovering today after a late night, so we are just going to share our day 9 and 10 prompts for the December Countdown hosted by Lynn's Book Blog and then we are moving to the couch for some reading and napping. 

  1. Snow – a book set in a cold or wintry climate
  2. Shopping – the last book added to your wishlist
  3. Wrapping paper – a lovely cover
  4. Presents – a book you enjoyed more than you expected to
  5. Chocolates – a book that was simply delicious
  6. Christmas stocking – stocking fillers – a novella or short story
  7. Christmas Tree –  traditional style, winter read
  8. Baubles – these add some colour, a very colourful and striking cover
  9. Fairy Lights – a book of the fae
  10. Under the Tree – a book you forgot you owned

Fairy Lights - a book of the Fae

Under the tree - a book you forgot you owned

Have a wonderful day and stay safe!

Lots of Love,



  1. Hi Mareli,

    Is it a case of the morning after the night before then? I hope you enjoyed a lovely birthday :)

    This is the second post I have come across already this morning, which has featured a David Baldacci book, so somebody must be trying to tell me something, as I haven't read one of his books for several years now.

    I shall probably be more inclined to check out some of his stand alone novels, rather than get too involved in a series.

    Have a relaxing day :)

    1. Hi Yvonne! I think it's a bit of both. We really can't party as hard as we used to....

      My Mother used to read David Baldacci in stacks. I didn't keep all of them after she passed away and I do regret it now. So I also haven't read any of his books in years and that's why I forgot I have them. The last were The Camel Club books. They were good!

      The predecessor of The Last Mile was Memory Man and that book was excellent!

      Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a good weekend!

  2. I’ve never read Artemis Fowl, I think I’d enjoy it!

    1. Neither did I! But I loved the movie. It was excellent. I think we should have been a bit younger to read this series. About 30 years or so....

  3. There are an embarrassing number of books I've forgotten I own! Every time I reorganize my shelves it's kind of a shock to discover them.

    1. Hi Katherine! The physical shelves I can still manage, but it's all the books on my kindle that I tend to forget about. I got into to habit of opening the Kindle app on my phone before I search for a new read on the kindle. Then I can see much quicker what I have and don't have.


We love hearing from you and if you talk to me, I'll purr back as soon as possible. Sometimes I take a cat nap and it might take a couple of hours or days, but never fear - the cat always comes back.
