A Month of Giving Thanks is a month-long challenge. Every day from November 1st to November 30th I will be sharing the love and being thankful by spotlighting some bloggers and books that I’ve been thankful for this year.
Please note that there is no way that I will be able to express my gratitude to everyone of you in just 30 days. I love everyone who visits the blog and even if I don’t get to single you this year, please know that I appreciate you!
A Month of Giving Thanks Day 14
Today I’d like to thank:
Ok, today I’m combining two blogs. Why? One – I don’t have enough room for everyone, so any chance I get for a logical (at least in my head) combining, I’m taking it! Two – they have two things in common that I want to gush about. But first, about the ladies…
Chapter Break is run by Julie and Rose. They’re both so kind and I love swooning over their That’s Why He Said Thursday posts – they sure know how to find some heart moving quotes. I love the way their personality comes through – especially in their weekly Chat Between Chapters discussion posts!
Terri @ Second Run Reviews is a relatively new blog friend, but is already love her. She’s a really talented photographer and you can see your own glimpses in her weekly Scenic Sunday posts. I just love seeing the moments she captures. She’s also been fun to chat with in twitter – especially as we push through ReviewAThon weekends!
These two blogs fit together well because – one, they’re going to be co-hosting a year long challenge in 2015 focusing on reading those books you already own. They haven’t released all the details yet, but with close to 600 books on my “owned-but-not-read” shelf I’m super excited to join their challenge.
The other reason – main reason – I grouped them together was that they both deserve to be in a post with this book. When I think of this book series they’re at the top of my list because they all love it as much as I do (okay, probably more)…
Today I’m thankful I discovered:
Series: Outlander #1
Published by Dell on January 1, 1991
Genres: Historical, Romance, Science Fiction
The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon--when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach--an "outlander"--in a Scotland torn by war and raiding Highland clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.
Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into intrigues and dangers that may threaten her life...and shatter her heart. For here she meets James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, and becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
So Outlander has so many fans, most have read it and know how long but also great the story is. If you’re one of the few, like me, who are late check out my review and see if it doesn’t convince you that it’s time to try it out!! I’ve also been reviewing the episodes as the come out on Starz with my “Outlander Thoughts” – which is pretty faithful to the book so far, if you aren’t ready to pick up this HUGE book.
Go give Chapter Break and Second Run Reviews some love and add Outlander to your Goodreads shelves! Who are you thankful for? Add your links below and visit the other participating bloggers 🙂
