Good Reads: What Are You Reading This Winter?

Hello Friends and welcome to the blog today.  


Hello my lovelies and how are you.  It’s been a week of weeks (so to speak). I skipped out on blogging Wednesday (I may rework my blog schedule), to end the blogging week on Friday.

Why has it been one of those weeks? … You ask, my website was hacked or breached, so I’ve spent ALL of this week reorganizing, updating, and deleting.  On top of that, I’ve maxed out of my resources on WordPress, which means my website barely loads, so I do apologize if you’ve experienced a lag time in pages loading. 

Today is all about something fun.  Something to take you places and put your mind in a different headspace.  I’m talking about some Good Reads for Winter.


Winter Good Reads

GoodObGoodObjects_Illustrations_LifebyWyeTruth be told my blogging schedule got the best of me in October and that was the last time I did any sort of book review. In fact, I’m still reading “The Shadows” but I’m almost done.  My reading slowed down to a crawl. (LOL) However as we hunker down for the Winter, I wanted to make sure I’ve got a stack of good books to read.

Well, that’s going to do it for today friends.  I know this post is much later than usual, and bear with me as my website goes through these growing pains.  I’m working on this problem, and I hope to have it fixed next week.  If you see a post on Monday that means the issues were resolved, if not well, I’m still working on it. 

I hope everyone has a great weekend, don’t forget to subscribe and hopefully, I’ll have a stress-free weekend decorating my tree, curled up with a good book.
