Merry Christmas everyone!

This is a wonderful time of year although I know for some it can be stressful, heartbreaking, or lonely. Books can be a true magic in their ability to portal us to other worlds, other lives, an infinite realm of What If’s. They can be a companion relied upon to never abandon or alter. Whether this time of year is one of pure joy and celebration, or a time of memories that try to haunt and restrain, I hope and pray there is a book in your life that you can cling to and help guide you through this season into the New Year. Of course, a book can only do so much for the rest is up to you. Think on those characters you so love and draw strength from them, pull it into this life and let it hold your head up and your steps steady. Christmas is a holiday of hope, of the greatest hope, and I pray it will touch your heart this year and forever more. Never let anyone or anything steal your hope.

Well, I could never have predicted how fantastic it is to be a book blogger and it’s all because of you. The book blog community is a large but warm one and I am so glad I stumbled into it. Please have a relaxing, fun, and rejuvenating Christmas and I hope 2018 will be even better.  Continue reading
