– What I’m currently reading
Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl. Frankl’s vivid memories of his life in the Nazi concentration camps don’t really put me in the mood for Christmas but this book has been on my to-read list for a while and I finally got it from the library, so it was time. An interesting read so far.
– What I recently finished reading
The Christmas Wedding by James Patterson.I had to read this book for my upcoming book club meeting and it was entertaining but nothing more. It has a very predictable plot and is definitely more about weddings than about Christmas. I didn’t find the book well written, more like a lazy writing by a famous author to make some quick bucks on popular themes. Disappointing.
The Christmas Thief by Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark. This was a fun read, like any other Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark’s novels. Interesting characters, a plot that keeps unraveling throughout the book with a few unexpected twists. And as always the good guys win, the bad guys get caught and my nails are shorter by the time I’m done with the book.
– What I think I’ll read next
Good question. I’m not sure yet but I do have some books on my own shelf I could pick from and I’ve ordered more from the library. It will all depend what comes up by the time I’m done with Frankl’s book.

I just picked up more books with a Christmas theme at the library this morning so they’ll probably make it to this list next week.
