Wow! I can’t believe I am forty-three this year! I am celebrating with some book love (of course). I am sharing four of my favorite books so far in 2014 ( I have 39 more than that for another day). I thought I would also share some of my other favorite things along the way too….just for fun!
I’ve loved this song ever since I heard it in the movie:
I adore Beekle and it has made me a fan of Dan Santat for life! The book trailer is also one of my favorites from this year! Enjoy!
My favorite cartoon as a kid! The theme song is the best!
Then there is real life super hero and amazing author-illustrator Cece Bell! I just love her graphic novel El Deafo! It is so honest, funny and heartfelt! A must read!
Sam and I love to visit Bookbug in Kalamazoo and then have Blue Moon ice cream at Treat Street! Blue Moon has always been my favorite flavor!
Speaking of ice cream…..
Have you read A Snicker of Magic?! A sweet tale that all wordsmiths will love and cherish!
I just think trees are amazing! One of my favorite quotes is about trees.
“Us sing and dance, make faces and give flower bouquets, trying to be loved. You ever notice that trees do everything to get attention we do, except walk?”
― The Color Purple by Alice Walker
So I also must recommend The Night Gardener by Jonathan Auxier!
I found this story about a tree…..fascinating. Who am I kidding? I was petrified and stopped breathing at one point from fright. Read at your own risk….and only if you love to be scared!
So what books do you love so far this year? I can’t decide which of these books to give away. So I am going to let the winner decide which book they would like from the four books listed in my blog! Enter the book giveaway by Monday, September 29th at 10 p.m. EST. Happy Reading!
