November Book Haul


I had a particularly good book thrifting month and bought thirty eight books. That's a lot of books even for me! My local Goodwills provided the bulk of them, but I also ordered a few books online and I even won a book at the end of October from Mocha Girls Read that I received on the 31st, so I am including it with this haul. I am not going to bore anyone with all of my finds so I am just going to haul the ones that I was most excited to find. I hope that you enjoy a peek into all of the book goodness that I found!

Happy Reading!

November Reading Wrap Up


This November was a decent reading month for me. I listened to two audio books, read four comics, and read seven books. I enjoyed almost everything, and there were books added to my favorites list. The Killing Moon by N.K. Jemisin was a favorite. Jemisin's writing just sucks me in and doesn't turn me loose until the very last page. The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson is now one of my all time favorite reads. It made such an impact on me and should be required reading! 

Well, November's almost done, Thanksgiving is over, and I am looking forward to the run up to Christmas. I checked my Goodreads reading challenge and I have read 139 of my 150 book goal. My fingers are crossed that I can read eleven more books before December 31st. I will definitely be taking my book goal number way down for next year! I plan on diving into some longer fantasy series next year so there is pretty much no way that I am going to read 150 books in 2017! Let me know if you have read a must read book this year so that I can check it out too! 

Happy Reading!

Christmas Romances


It's the day after Thanksgiving, so it is now officially right to break out all of the Christmas joy that I can! This is my favorite time of year and there's no better way from me to enjoy a cold evening than to have a fire going and a good book in my hands. If you want some Christmas romance to help you get in the holiday spirit or to just help you escape from some of the holiday madness check out these Christmas themed romances!

Happy Reading!

Happy Veteran's Day


Happy Veteran's Day! This has been a long, hard, and emotional week for many of us. I am one of the many who have found our election results to be disappointing to say the least. But, enough people who believe differently than I do voted and carried their cause to victory. It's sad, disappointing, and heart breaking, but it's reality. SO! I'm taking the day to spend with my own military man and being grateful for him and all those who serve by doing the heavy lifting for our country. I'm also the very proud parent of a daughter who is active duty military. Yep, I am a very proud Airforce wife AND mother! I'm going to love on my hubby today and spend some time doing not much of anything. I hope that you all are doing as well as possible during this uncertain time and that you are able to find some happiness by being with friends and family and maybe escaping reality for a little while in a good book. Stay encouraged and look forward to what can be changed and hopefully improved. I hope that you all find and give kindness this weekend. See you next week!

Happy Reading!
Monica
