Books I am Thankful For. . .and a Giveaway

This is the season to be thankful so I thought I would make up a list of books I am thankful for this year. They have kept me entertained. These are in no particular order so don't get any ideas. What follows is a summary of all the five star books I read this year, so far, and a simple reason I loved them.

Reminded me why I fell in love with reading.
