    Good TBR. Two Stephen Mosses I don’t have, and I neglected to read his 12 Birds of Christmas in December. I’d better put those up my mental list for my book token splurge later in the year!

      I really liked 12 Birds of Christmas. I have had one as a review copy for far too long and the other is a library book so It makes sense to read them together
