You're Gonna Hear Us ROAR! Happy #Thanksgiving! | With Autumn & Holiday #BookRecommendations [Featuring @kathytrithardt, @ingridiortiz, @booktubegoddess & @writerahart]

So ... this "holiday" video is a little different because .... I am now aware (more so than ever before) about how Thanksgiving is not really a wonderful holiday to celebrate. HOWEVER, if you are celebrating it ONLY for family traditions and being truly thankful for what you have in life than ... lets celebrate! Therefore, most of the JibJab clips are music videos with our faces attached and while the video's cover has three tiny pilgram hats that is all the pilgrams you will be seeing. Basically what I am saying is WATCH THE VIDEO because it is FOR EVERYONE even those who dislike this American holiday. Watch. Enjoy! Comment your thoughts.
Also ... just to be clear ... though I DO love the song "I am dancing too" I do want it to be known that it was my kids that chose that song because my 9 yr old & almost 7 yr old thought it was hilarious. 😁

So let's find a way to bring back the days when our hearts were forever young

Everyone is searching for their own happily-ever-after whether they believe so or not .... "Casting Spells" by Barbara Bretton ... characters are just doing the same. However, Chloe is a half-human half-sorcerer who hasn't fallen into her powers at all ... but has a town who is in need of her guidance. As the town has been protected for over 300 years from outsiders prying eyes is finally falling into their own cracks and everyone is hoping she will make it all better. But when an outsider dies in their town .... a cop moves in to find out if it was an accident or a murder??? Will Chloe be able to get him out town without anything being noticeable?? Or will he find out more then he's supposed to?

4 out of 5 stars. The story was written in a diary kinda form from both Luke and Chloe's sides. It kept me rapt in what was going on and I couldn't put it down!

For more information on this book or other books by Barbara then please check out her website.

** Title is from the song We Were In Love by Toby Keith **

A Fixer Upper is RIGHT

This weekend I tried reading "The Fixer Upper" by Mary Kay Andrews. I mean the product description of it sounded so cute. It's about a girl named Dempsey, who is a lobbyist from Washington DC, and suddenly is thrown into a huge scandal and is pretty much thrown under the bus. So, her dad tells her about a family home that is in desperate need of repair that he just inherited, which he would like her to fix up since she has no prospects and he's not going to give her any money without working for it. So, she moves into this house and starts fixing it up ... finding a unique distant cousin along the way, a town where everyone knows your business, and some gentlemen who would like to get involved with Dempsey. However, she still cannot get to far away from the mess in DC.

I mean with that type of book ... what more can a girl ask for? But I was wrongly advised! *blah* I mean it sounded cute ... and at the beginning of the book it started out okay but I barreled on thinking and hoping it would get better. And I was sorely mistaken. =0( The book was slower then slow. Dempsey couldn't make up her mind and for someone who was supposed to have gone to law school ... I just thought the character would have been better. *shakes head* I give it 1 out of 5 stars.

However, you might have better luck then me reading it ... who knows? So, if you'd like to find out what others say about this book or find out more about Mary Kay Andrews' other books, then check out her website.

This book report is all Hush, Hush...

Well, yesterday I finished reading Hush, Hush, by Becca Fitzpatrick. It's the first novel in her first and latest series about immortal beings and fallen angels. I really liked the main characters Patch and Nora. Patch is of course a bad boy with a good heart [even though he doesn't want to admit to it] and Nora is a good girl who tries to do the right thing always.

I loved that the setting was in Maine since ... HELLO I'm from Maine!! ... I love when I can get another view on that area I never would have thought of. *sigh ... memories*

The only problem I had with the novel was Nora's best friend Vee ... she was just way to goddamn pushy. I just wanted to smack her ... especially 20% of Nora's problems were from Vee making up things ... she just needed to shut up sometimes. It was very annoying. =0/ But I digress.

Basically for me the book had too many twists and turns for me to either keep up with it or like it during the first to the middle half of the book .... but from the middle to the end it finally got better ... so all in all I'd give it 3.5 out of 5 stars. Definitely I plan on reading the sequel to this book called Crescendo .. when it comes out since like I said I did love the books ending [and no not just because it ended ... it was really good!! =0) ]!! Put it this way because I loved the main characters that kept me reading the book. ♥

To find out more from Becca Fitzpatrick check out her website.

The Books I'm Thankful For (so far) in 2020


It is Thanksgiving Day (the USA version of it at least) today! The tradition on my blog is to post a list of ALL the books I've read thus far this year that I've given my highest ratings to (5 out of 5 stars) today, which means I'm VERY Thankful for finding/reading them!

HOWEVER -- and it is a BIG HOWEVER -- this year has been hard for everyone. Myself included when it comes to promoting the books I have been reviewing. As if you look at my 2017 & 2018 Thankful Book Lists you'll see within my top write-up (like this one) that I say something along the lines of "because of life I have reviews but have yet to fully post them yet." This year is a LITTLE different because though ... that is still true ... my reviews ARE backlogged ... I had a catastrophe in March 2020 where I LOST ALL OF MY PREVIOUS REVIEWS. Yeah. If you want to hear ALL about it click here. BUT for 2020 specifically I was trying gather some "reading stats" for you, so out of those 19 books I know that 5 that I have no reviews for need to be on this list because I had rated them 5 out of 5 stars!

Yes this list is odd BUT other than the top three books within this list the others DO have reviews for them -- FULL REVIEWS COMING SOON -- so CHECK IT OUT! I DO RECOMMEND ALL OF THESE NOVELS!!

➡️ Also for the THIRD year running I have a We Are Thankful For Books collab video (at the bottom of this post) for you. In the video you'll see 5 Youtubers (including myself) talk about the books they are thankful for reading this year. Enjoy! 📚🥧
