Happy Thanksgiving Booking Through Thursday



What
books and authors are you particularly thankful for this year?


Well, it's hard to be thankful today in all honesty. I just lost a cousin yesterday who I was very close to. But this is good-it helps me to think of the things I am truly thankful for. So here are the books and authors that have helped me through times like these.

Books:

1. Looking for Alaska by John Green- even though I read this last year I am so happy it came into my life. I think about it all the time. It's such a powerful book and it's characters and their struggles will always be close to my heart.

Authors:

1. Sarah Dessen- She never disappoints me. I can relate to her characters and stories so much. Her writing is so simple and true. I love every one of her books (that's why I couldn't pick one!). I wish she were a machine writer so I could have something new from her to read all the time!

2. Suzanne Collins- Wow! I am so glad I read The Hunger Games (I wasn't going to, but then I said what the heck?) her novels are gems.

3. Stephenie Meyer- because without her, I wouldn't have Jacob.

Authors I'd like to read:

Elizabeth Scott- any suggestions? Favorite book of hers?

Do you guys have any other book suggestions? Books that help with healing? Made you laugh? Feel good books?

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Happy Reading (and don't forget to always be thankful)!

I'm so very sorry for you loss. It's hard any time of year but the hoidays seem to make the absence of loved ones more noticeable. I lost my younger cousin a few months ago. She was only 35 with a husband and 4 young children. She had a rare brain cancer for 2 1/2 years that she just couldn't beat. We read a lot of books together and it's hard for me to concentrate when I try to read now. Funny books do seem to be the best though. It's nice to relax and enjoy and not have to concentrate too much.

I hope you can find good books to take your mind off things. I hope you have all good thoughts and many happy memories. Best wishes.
