Hi Y’all! It is November and that is always the month I am reminded that there are tons of things that I am thankful for in my life. This year November will be known as the Month of Thanks. I am going to do 30 days of Thanks here on Geeky Bloggers Book Blog! Each day I will highlight one author (and the book they wrote that moved me) and one blogger (and their awesomeness) that I am thankful for! These are not in any particular order and by no means is 30 going to cover everyone that I love.
I am thankful to Laura Kaye and her book North of Need! I was handed this book in August while on vacation in New Orleans and ended up staying in my hotel room on a Saturday afternoon reading it! I fell in love with Owen from practically the first page. You know when a book finds you at just the right time? Well that was North of Need for me. I was in the mood for a really good romance and this one just fit the bill. Now I need to get West of Want and I heard that there is a South of Surrender coming out too!
While attempting to escape the agonizing memories she associates with Christmas, twenty-nine-year-old widow Megan Snow builds a snow family outside the mountain cabin she once shared with her husband-and collapses in tears against the snowman at the sight of what she’ll never have.Called to life by the power of Megan’s tears, snow god Owen Winters appears unconscious on her doorstep in the midst of a raging blizzard. As she nurses him to health, Owen finds unexpected solace in her company and unimagined pleasure in the warmth of her body, and vows to win her heart for a chance at humanity.Megan is drawn to Owen’s mismatched eyes, otherworldly masculinity, and enthusiasm for the littlest things, and her heart opens enough to believe he’s a Christmas miracle. But this miracle comes with an expiration-before the snow melts and the temperature rises, Megan must let go of her widow’s grief and learn to trust love again, or she’ll lose Owen forever.
I am very thankful for Vanessa The Jeep Diva! This chic is just downright one of the best people I know. She has a love of reading that is fantastic and wonderfully wicked sense of humor. She loves Jeeps, her fur babies, and her hubby. She is always hitting the road up for new adventures and still manages to read a freaking ton. I have gotten the pleasure of hanging with Vanessa several times over the years and I hope to many more in the future! She never fails to make me smile and I am thrilled that I can call her a friend :)
