Merry Christmas!! 🎅🎄

I'm gonna start this post by saying Merry Christmas to you reading this right now (Also, thanks for reading! ♡)
Here's a message from yesterday's post:
To you,
I hope you have a beautifully exciting and joyful Christmas and an extraordinarily spectacular New Year. Remember that as long as you have people you love around you, then presents are worthless..but presents are a bonus!

Thank you so much for reading this post- it's a huge gift to know my thoughts are read by another. Even if it's one. 

Live, laugh, love life,

Less than a week ago, I participated in Catarina ReadingandThings: 12 Days of Christmas- it was a book-revolving event on Facebook for bloggers and authors to come together for fun.
My hour involved a quiz and I got some amazing responses from some amazing girls. Shout out to them.

One question was:..
What's your favourite Christmas book?

Seeing as it's Christmas today, I realize that I am somewhat late with this post. But we're still gonna do it

  • How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss 
 "The Grinch hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season! / Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason." Dr. Seuss's small-hearted Grinch ranks right up there with Scrooge when it comes to the crankiest, scowling holiday grumps of all time. For 53 years, the Grinch has lived in a cave on the side of a mountain, looming above the Whos in Whoville. The noisy holiday preparations and infernal singing of the happy little citizens below annoy him to no end. The Grinch decides this frivolous merriment must stop. His "wonderful, awful" idea is to don a Santa outfit, strap heavy antlers on his poor, quivering dog Max, construct a makeshift sleigh, head down to Whoville, and strip the chafingly cheerful Whos of their Yuletide glee once and for all.

Looking quite out of place and very disturbing in his makeshift Santa get-up, the Grinch slithers down chimneys with empty bags and stealing the Whos' presents, their food, even the logs from their humble Who-fires. He takes the ramshackle sleigh to Mt. Crumpit to dump it and waits to hear the sobs of the Whos when they wake up and discover the trappings of Christmas have disappeared. Imagine the Whos' dismay when they discover the evil-doings of Grinch in his anti-Santa guise. But what is that sound? It's not sobbing, but singing! Children simultaneously adore and fear this triumphant, twisted Seussian testimonial to the undaunted cheerfulness of the Whos, the transcendent nature of joy, and of course, the growth potential of a heart that's two sizes too small. This holiday classic is perfect for reading aloud to your favorite little Whos. (Ages 4 to 8)

  • Secret Santa by Kathleen Brooks
Secret Santa is USA Today Best-selling Author Kathleen Brooks' novella to thank her readers for their amazing support and to update them on their favorite characters from her Bluegrass books. 
If you're new to the Bluegrass Series, please pick upSecret Santa as her gift to you this holiday season. At the end of the book there is an excerpt from Bluegrass State of Mind, the first book in the series, also currently free.
It wouldn't be Christmas in Keeneston without a party! Everyone's invited, even Santa… 

Kenna's court docket is full, Dani's hiding from her in-laws, Paige and Annie are about to burst from pregnancy, and Marshall is breaking up fights at the PTA Christmas Concert. The sweet potato casserole is made, the ham and biscuits are on the table, and men are losing their shirts - and not because of bets placed with the Rose Sisters! All the while, the entire town is wondering one thing: who is the Secret Santa that showed up with special gifts for everyone?
