YOUR BEST HOLIDAY MEMORY:
The first time I got to be "Santa" for my kids.
A HOLIDAY ADVICE AND WISH LIST
With the holidays coming up, I thought I'd share a bit of advice and a little bit of my wish list. My holiday advice would be to wear matching socks when going to any holiday party! I just went to one, and it was a little rainy, so I wore a pair of tall boots. However, when I got there, everyone had taken off their shoes. Dozens of shoes lined up in the foyer. So, I took off my boots and what do you know, I had two white socks on, but one had a grey tip and was a tad shorter than the other! So there I was walking around with a skirt and white mismatched socks! Why did I not have matching socks you ask? Simply because I didn't pay attention. See two white ones in the drawer...throw them on...not! So anyway, remember this piece of holiday advice just in case!
And now for my wish list. Yippie! This holiday season, I only asked for some books. Really! There are just so many great ones out right now, that I can't wait to get my hands on them! Plus, I think books are gifts that linger, especially when you find one with characters that make you want to step into their world.
One particular book I read recently was A Perfect Chemistry. It will stick with me, because I found myself wanting to be in it, experiencing each scene for myself. I'll even go as far as saying I wanted Alex to call me Mamacita!! LOL. Hope hubby is not reading this! If he is, I'll just blame it on the hopeless romantic in me!
But anyway! What a feeling, to feel such strong emotions toward fictional people! That's why I look forward to books! So this season, I am very much looking forward to going into the New Year with a few great books, and some matching socksJ!
Peace and love,
ABOUT HER BOOKS
Nineteen-year-old Weston has everything. He's super hot, mysterious, dangerous, sincere, and vulnerable. He’s also a one-of-a-kind evolution that will change the idea of immortality forever. Anyone would be drawn to him, even without fate's intervention, and when eighteen-year-old Sophie crashes into him, there's no turning back.
All that remains is figuring out who, or what, he is, and with a little perseverance, she'll find out the indelible truth—right along with a century-old secret...and a threat for which neither of them are prepared.
