What do you do when one of your most anticipated books arrives on your doorstep?

winter2Make some tea, find a cozy spot and read!!  I began this series over a year ago and this is the final book in the Lunar Chronicles series. It’s been a long time coming, hence why I don’t typically read books too soon in series so that I don’t have to wait too long. The boys had the day off yesterday for Veteran’s day and after hanging out with them, I rushed to make my tea and head up to my nook to read. I first read the last chapter of the last book, “Cress” and then I dived right in. The day was absolutely a great book reading day – overcast, drizzle with periods of rain.  Yup, a book day indeed.

winter3I love the natural light in my nook and my comfy IKEA chair. I was pleasantly surprised at how easily I could climb back into the story. The sounds of the boys playing sort of faded to a background while I immersed my senses into the city of Artemesia!  I fell back in with the characters and revisted all of my feelings for them.

winter4After lunch with the boys, I stole a little more time to read. I am happy this book is a bit of a chunker because this will be the farewell to the story and characters when I complete it and I tend to slow when I near the end of a good book or series. So I am grateful Marissa Meyer didn’t skimp.

You know, I always say to people who say they don’t like to read, that “they haven’t met the book for them”. Because when you do, it takes places and makes feel things and sometimes even challenges you. So I believe we are all readers, and some are just waiting for the right one to arrive.

Sending blessings your way,


It’s Here!!!

winterHello my booklover friends! I am so excited today because one of my most anticipated books of the year that I pre-ordered arrived on my doorstep this morning. Today, the next and I believe final book in the Lunar Chronicles was released. I am jumping up and down with serious book love right now.

I can’t wait to see what will happen next.  I am also pleased that the book is a chunker. So that means I can stay in that world a little longer. I am currently reading a book club book and have about 100 pages left so I am going to crank it into high gear so I can start Winter tomorrow.

The beauty of pre-ordering with Amazon is the price and that they arrive on your doorstep the same day the stores release them.  I didn’t even have to leave the comfort of my home.  Simply divine!

I have a couple of reviews I will be posting soon and definitely will review Winter when I complete it. Today is amazing!

Sending blessings your way,
