Sundays in Bed With… #MyWeeklyWrapUp [170]

If you celebrate, Merry Christmas! 🎄🎁🎄
I hope you’re having a wonderful time with your loved ones.

We’re back with another Sundays in Bed With… meme! This meme dares to ask you what book has been in your bed this morning and is hosted by Midnight Book Girl. Come share what book you’ve spent your time curled up reading in bed with or which book you wish you had time to read today!

I’ll be spending the rest of my Sunday night in bed hopefully finishing The Geek Who Saved Christmas by Annabeth Albert. I’ve been making slow but steady progress with this read over the last few days and I’m enjoying parts of it, I think it’s cute, but it’s also not wowing me at the moment. Let’s see if that changes by the end!


His grumpy neighbor needs some holiday sunshine…

Gideon Holiday is the perfect neighbor. Need a cup of sugar? Spare folding chair? Extra batteries? He’s always ready to help. And he’s waited years for his hot, grumpy, silver fox neighbor, Paul, to need him. For anything. But this December, Gideon would be happy if he could just get the Scrooge-like Paul on board with the neighborhood holiday lights fundraiser.

Paul Frost has no intention of decking his halls or blazing any Yule logs. Even if his spunky bowtie-clad neighbor does look perfect for unwrapping, Paul would prefer to hide away until December is done. But when his beloved younger brother announces an unexpected visit, Paul needs all the trimmings for a festive homecoming—and fast.

Luckily, Gideon is there with a color-coded plan to save Christmas. Soon Paul’s hanging lights, trimming trees, and rolling out cookies. And steaming up his new flannel sheets with Gideon. How did that happen?

It’ll take some winter magic to preserve their happiness and keep these rival neighbors together longer than one holiday season.

The Geek Who Saved Christmas is a low-angst m/m holiday romance with a guaranteed happy ending. This grumpy/sunshine, neighbors-to-lovers, found family tale features two heroes in their forties figuring out that maybe their sexily-ever-after was right next door the whole time. It stands alone and is not connected to any of the author’s other universes. However, it does contain a heaping helping of the same emotions and steamy moments readers have come to expect!

What are you currently reading?

I flew into Bali on Thursday and since then I’ve had a day-long catch-up with one of my besties, I attended a family Christmas Eve gift exchange party, and we hosted a non-Christmas-Christmas dinner at home tonight with old family friends we’ve known since we moved to the Philippines in 1996. It’s been busy and time has also passed in a blink. I can’t believe it’s already Monday tomorrow and it’ll be the final week countdown to the end of 2022!

It’s been nice hanging out with my parents though. I came here earlier than my sister because mum has been taking care of dad alone and his health has been deteriorating fairly quickly since his epilepsy diagnosis. He’s on medication but his day episodes are happening more frequently and it’s just hard to see happen. There are good and bad days but I’m really glad that I can spend more time with him and help mum out more too.

I sadly haven’t been reading as much as I thought I would during this time since work has slowed down but the days have passed in a blur of activity and I still have so much that I want to read before 2022 ends. Alas, I don’t think I’ll be reading many more titles… 😂 This week has also been terrible for posting on the blog but its also been understandably quiet on the blogosphere. I did take a bit of time today to plan what posts I need to make next week, especially the wrap-up posts etc.!

ICYMI, here’s what I posted on the blog this week:

I hope you’ve all had a good weekend and that you have a great week ahead! Take care of yourselves and of each other, friends 🖤
