Okay, now on to the book portion of today’s post. It’s my November Book Review!!
This month, I read one memoir and three Christmas books. I read #alltheChristmasbooks because I knew you ladies might want to read them this month. So, sit back, open your Amazon and start “adding to cart” 🙂 .
Several of you recommended Sisters First to me last month, so I read it first this month. As a native Texan, I’ve always kept my eye on the Bush twins. I am exactly one month older than them to the day, so we were always in the same grade growing up here in Texas, and they were always kind of like the “first daughters” of our state. I thought this book was sweet. It’s all about sisterhood and since I don’t have any sisters, but I am raising sisters, I love to read about stuff like this. I really love to read about how sisters can be so different, but yet so close. That’s a life lesson this mama heart needs to hear on repeat. I thought the book was funny, endearing and I thoroughly enjoyed the storytelling. I also thought the book was honest about sisterhood and how it ebbs and flows, but it’s a bond that lasts forever. This was a sweet book that you might want to gift to your sister this holiday season.
You know how much I love me a Nancy Thayer book…and this holiday one did not disappoint! A Nantucket Christmas is a sweet little fictional tale set during the holiday season on my favorite island of Nantucket. This book has all the makings of a holiday novel: lots of yummy references to food, a little family conflict, an unexpected twist and a happy ending. You can’t ask for more than that, right? The main character is dealing with her new hubby’s married daughter for their first Christmas together and well, as you can imagine, things don’t go as planned. This little read was easy to breeze through and made me happy. It’s a simple little book to put you in the holiday spirit!
I think this might be my favorite of the three Christmas novels! Merry and Bright was very much like the movie You’ve Got Mail. It’s about a girl and guy who meet on the internet and don’t realize that he’s the mean boss and she’s the sweet employee. I loved every turn of the page. This novel takes place in Seattle and not only are the main characters likable, but the secondary characters are too (her family and the other co-workers). This one was just sweet. If you love those Hallmark Christmas movies like me, you will love this one!
My fourth and final book this month was Christmas Bliss. This novel is about two best friends (one about to be married and the other, about to have a baby). This story takes place in Savannah, Georgia (with some moments in NYC) and honestly, I thought it was going to end a little differently than it did, so you could say that this one had enough plot twists to surprise me a bit. My favorite part about this book is that one of the main characters owns an antique store, and I loved reading about her finds (linens, silverware, place settings, etc). I thought she was charming, and I wanted to visit her shop. If you’re looking for sweet and easy to read, this one will do it for you! You’ll have this book read by tomorrow.
Okay, four books for the month! I’m already on my next book…Wonder! That will be the first book I review next month along with my 2017 Book Review (where I’ll name my FAVORITE book of the year!!). Right now, what would you say is your favorite book this year? I have a few I know I want to read in December, but who knows? Maybe you’ll convince me that I need to read something else! Please comment and share!!!
