Mo' books. Mo' joy.
December is here and I could not be more pumped! Here comes the snow plows, the snow days, and fireplaces ablaze. Stop by anytime this month and you will be able to find me laying next to the fire wrapped in blankets, hot cocoa at my side, reading books. My Ugg slippers on.
Ah, I love the winter season. Books have become a favorite of mine in recent years. While Tommy and I only post one book a month for our book club, I have a stack of books that I am always reading. There are currently four books sitting next to my bed, not including the book for this month's Book Club, that I am in the middle of reading.
Speaking of which...
This months book! I have taken it upon myself to reread a book from years ago. "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan. I first read this book years ago, fell in love with it, and then book it on my bookshelf to be forgotten. So this month I will gladly read through of this book once again.

Tommy's Review of The Goldfinch:
At the time of its release, The Goldfinch was the source of incredibly polarizing opinions. Critics like The New York Times, Paris Review, and The New Yorker in so many words called it trash. They claimed what was being called serious fiction was in fact only a fraud, something that mimicked characteristics of classic literature. The mainstream audience? They ate up the book, purchasing over a million copies. At the heart of the book there is a story, and intriguing story, one that you can't let yourself walk away from. So, if you are going into this book expecting such literary greatness as the likes of Dickens or Hemingway, this may not be the book for you. But if you are look for a book to get lost in...read away!
