Good Morning Everyone,
On Saturdays, I will be posting a question or topic for us to chat about. I hope you enjoy the discussions.
To start, I just want to know what your favorite genre is? Do you love to time travel through Historical Fiction or futuristic Science Fiction? Do you want to fall in love with romantic characters through tear-jerkers or Happily Ever Afters? Or do you like to stick with the facts and truth that non-fiction provides?
As for me, I really enjoy most genres. I feel that as long as the book is well-written, then I will be able to escape into it. Some genres, like horror and sci-fi, I have to be prepared and in the mood to read them, but other than that I will read whatever I can get my hands on.
So leave a comment below, telling me what genres you love the most!
“It gets worse,” he chuckled. “Wait until she says, ‘I do.’ Savor the moment, old man. There’s nothing like it.”

Today, I chose a character quote from the book I reviewed yesterday. (Click here, to read the review.) I love this quote because it shows the many loveable sides of the various relationships between the main characters.
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
The Puppy that Came for Christmas
By: Megan Rix
Megan and Ian Rix have desperately been trying to have a baby. Megan feels as though a baby would finally complete their family. Throughout the numerous failed attempts, the couple has kept their struggles quiet. Along the way, they find a group called Helper Dogs. This group trains puppies to assist humans with disabilities. Megan and Ian get to experience all the joys and heartache of fostering two little puppies over the course of a year, until they finally get their forever dog.
The Puppy that Came for Christmas is a beautifully written memoir. Megan’s emotions shine through her words as she struggles to conceive. She keeps her story honest by showing the good times as well as the bad, such as medication failures or experiencing jealousy over her brother’s surprise announcement. However, puppy lovers around the world can relate to all the pleasures and sorrows that comes with Emma, Freddy and eventually Traffy. With their first dog, Megan tells readers about each of Emma’s triumphs and the new world of possibilities that opens from being a doggie parent. Then Freddy brings a bit of silliness to help distract from the pain of Emma’s graduation. Readers will laugh, cry and ooh and ahh throughout this inspirational book.
Note:This review was written for My Sister’s Books and Sasee Magazine.
“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
It has been a bitter cold week for much of the United States. I actually dug out my scarves and gloves that I hadn’t seen in close to four years! I saw this quote and it reminded me of the peaceful, snowy nights. For me, snow always meant magic was happening. It was some rare, beautiful and serene. To experience such cold temps this week without any snow, seemed wrong. However the cold gave many a great excuse to stay indoors, snuggled up under a blanket and reading a good book! (As if we ever really need another excuse to read!)
Stay safe and warm during this winter day!
