Making Time for the Things You Love

by C. M. North

Goodreads has a way of making me feel nervous, joyous and depressed, all at the same time. I love it as a book community, but every time I visit (which is usually several times a day) I can’t help checking for new reviews of 22 Scars, which is where the nervousness comes in - what if there’s a new bad review?

The Duke I Once Knew by @OliviaDrake1 ~ a Review & Excerpt

by MK French

Abigail Linton and Maxwell Bryce had romantic feelings for each other when young, but Max and his infant sister were brought to London after his mother's death. Fifteen years later, Abigail had gotten fed up with her older siblings perpetually using her to soothe their lives with no consideration for her wants. She accepts the post of governess for Max's younger sister, thinking that he would be away from the estate. Circumstances send him back to the estate along with his libertine friends, and the two meet again for the first time in fifteen years.

Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton ~ a Discussion

by Donna Huber

I enjoyed doing the Great Read PBS posts last year, so I think I'm going to continue to do that type post with books that I'm not truly reviewing. I hope you enjoy the fun facts and a different look at books.

Donna's December Reading Wrap-up #MondayBlogs

by Donna Huber

Here we are: the last day of 2018. It has been a great reading year. I've read/listened to 118 books (because I'm counting the stories in A Christmas Treasury as separate "books" - I'm not going to read them all this year so I thought it was a good way to get credit for what I did read), which is 3 more than last year and 18 more than my goal of 100 books. December was an average reading month (thanks to short stories). I enjoyed a few Christmas stories and a short break from review copies.
