Merry Christmas!!

Happy Birthday Jesus, and Merry Christmas to all my fellow readers 😀.      
It feels like it's been forever since I've done a post, but this month has just been so crazy with all the preparations for Christmas. One of my New Years resolutions is to get this blog on a regular updating schedule, and I have lots of posts I'm planning for the next couple weeks including a best books I read in 2015 post. Today I just wanted to pop by and wish everyone a Merry Christmas, and I hope everyone has an amazing holiday no matter how you're spending it! I'm looking forward to growing my blog in  2016, and I can't wait to continue this journey with all my fellow book lovers

Book Review: Love Water Memory by Jennie Shortridge

Good evening fellow readers :)

I hope everyone's having a great start to their week, and to the Christmas season. I've been enjoying starting my baking, and getting some gifts wrapped today, but I thought I would take a quick break from doing so to review a book I was highly anticipating reading, Love Water Memory Jennie Shortridge


I received this book for Christmas last year from my hubby, and it one of the books I was most excited about reading. I had seen it at Shoppers Drug Mart one day while we were doing some Christmas shopping, and the synopsis really intrigued me. Here is the back blurb from goodreads: "If you could do it all over again, would you still choose him?

At age thirty-nine, Lucie Walker has no choice but to start her life over when she comes to, up to her knees in the chilly San Francisco Bay, with no idea how she got there or who she is. Her memory loss is caused by an emotional trauma she knows nothing about, and only when handsome, quiet Grady Goodal…

Series Wrap Up: Scarlett Wakefield by Lauren Henderson

Last summer during one of the crazy sales that Book Outlet put on, I came across the Scarlett Wakefield series by Lauren Henderson, and I was instantly intrigued. I had previously read Flirting in Italian by her, and I thought it was a cute read, that had a much deeper plotline than I was originally expecting, and I had been wanting to give some more of her books a try. Since with the crazy sale going on, the whole series (which includes four books), would cost less than ten dollars, I decided to go ahead and order all of them, not knowing much about it, other than they were kind of a mystery series.

I'm embarrassed to admit that it took me over a year to get around to finishing this series, as I have a bad habit of buying a ton of books all at once, and then taking forever to finish them all, but once I did get around to reading them, I fell completely in love with the series as a whole, and it left me with a major book hangover at the end.

The Scarlett Wakefield series includes …

Giving Back at Christmas

Hello fellow readers,

I hope everyone is having an amazing weekend. I know we're definitely enjoying the abnormal warm temperatures we've been having lately, although everyone's hoping and praying that we will still see snow for Christmas, as it just doesn't seem the same without it.

Speaking of Christmas, it's crazy to think that it's less than three weeks away. I've been super busy with shopping, wrapping, decorating and baking, but amongst all the crazy things I love about Christmas, one of my favorite Christmas traditions is taking part in Operation Christmas Child.

Growing up, we may not have been what anyone would ever call wealthy, but my parents always instilled in us the importance of giving back. And one of their favorite ways to do this was with having each of us take part in Operation Christmas Child. To anyone unfamiliar with the program, it's a way to provide a child in another country with a Christmas present, that they would otherwise n…

Dashing Through The Snow: A brand new novel by one of my all time favorite authors.

Good morning fellow booklovers :)

I can't believe how long it's been since I last sat down to do a blog post. Unfortunately I've been battling a nasty virus for the last couple of weeks that has literally left me with next to no energy to do anything aside from my regular job, and keeping up with the housework around here. Thankfully I'm finally starting to feel a bit better, and thought it was long overdue for me to get a few reviews typed up of the lovely books I've finished in the last few weeks. I guess that is one positive for being under the weather, I had plenty of time to catch up on my TBR pile!

Today's review is extremely exciting for me. If anyone were to ask me for my list of favorite authors, it might be a long and winded list that would be ever changing with all the new and amazing authors I discover along the way, but Debbie Macomber would make this list every single tine! Her books are those kind of change into your comfiest pajamas, get a big o…
