A Month of Giving Thanks

Hosted by Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun and Michelle @ Because Reading. #30daysofThanks is originally hosted by The Geeky Blogger and with Felicia’s permission, we adopted something similar, and hope you’ll join us!

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 22

Today I’d like to thank:

I’m pretty sure I met Laura because of COYER Summer Vacation, though it’s possible I knew her before then. But I really connected with because of COYER-SV and the COYER FB group. And like Angie of Pinkindle, Laura kicked some COYER Butt. I mean, she read like 80 books or something! Whoa! Since getting to know her, I’ve come to consider Laura one of the sweetest people I know. We share a lot of the same interests – she’s a writer too! – and we seem to squeal over the same books.

The book I’m thankful for today, Laura and I both read towards the end of COYER-SV and we actually kind of took over a COYER FB chat to squee about it. It came from one of my favorite authors, and yet, it still shocked the hell out of me with how GREAT it was!

Today I’m thankful I discovered:

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

From the moment I opened my eyes I could only see the world in shades of gray. There was no noise, no sound, nothing. Deaf and colorblind, I was a loner. My world was bleak, silent and empty, until her. Until I met my neighbor, Elisa Jane Adrian. I want her. I need her. The fractured part of me feels whole when she's around. Like the world isn't so dark, isn't so bleak, and so still. I know it's impossible, but when I look at Elisa I swear I can see color, can hear the gentle inhalations of her breath. I know she feels it too, this magic, this desperate desire...

I first saw him when I was three. Julian Wright was different than any other guy I'd ever known. He sees the world in a way I know I never will. But he intrigues me. The way he looks at me with his sea green eyes, how he hypnotizes me with his smile.

It's dangerous these feelings I have for him. Reckless and stupid. I'm so much older than him, I know better. And I'll fight these desires, no one will ever know how I feel. I'll even pretend to myself that I'm not as hooked on him as he is on me.

I'll move away to Ireland, I'll forget him, but that's the thing about the Wright's, they have a way of getting under your skin, into your soul, and no matter the time or distance, once a Wright sets their eyes on you, there's no going back...ever.

My review for The Wright Brother was basically a giant squee fest because I just loved this book so much. I read it in one sitting and will probably read it again. Soon. It just was so damn good!

    Um, if this is the Laura I think it is, I’m really sad because I didn’t know she was a blogger. :/ Which is silly. I will definitely check out her blog because I’ve loved getting to know her on COYER FB. And I REALLY want to read The Wright Brother because of your review. And if Laura liked it too, all the better! πŸ™‚

      Yay!! Welcome to COYER madness. It’s so much fun and the community has really carried over, even when COYER is over.

      Right!? I think the two of you are the only ones able to give each other serious competition! I’m glad you added it – now read it πŸ˜‰
