The past month has been a wild one in our family. My husband’s brother passed away tragically and unexpectedly on the other end of the country, my mother-in-law had emergency surgery here, several close friends went through tragedies of their own, both daughters wrapped up their club volleyball season and I had to travel for work.
Though writing and posting reviews slipped to the side, I never stopped reading. Through all the challenges of this year, the joys and sorrows, being able to turn to the pages of wonderful books provided the best medicine of all. Books change our perspective, offer us an escape from hard moments, embrace us in warm comfort , challenge us to be the best we can be and so much more.
Though I am reading my 102nd book of the year right now, determined to at least DOUBLE my Cannonball Read IV Challenge total before 2012 ends, I invite you to wander by my BookHoardingDragon blog to catch up on any of these belated reviews.
