About the challenge courtesy of Jennifer @ The Book Shelfery:

We love holiday themed reads from the covers to the warm & fuzzy tales on the inside. For this read-a-thon you must read holiday themed or winter setting reads. For bloggers, we have spoken to most of the main publishing houses and for ARCS of holiday books released in Sept/Oct, they are fine with you posting a review in November and December since that is when folks look to buy them. Below are the rules. Read them, grab the button and link up. For our non-blogger friends you can join too. Just link your Goodreads, Tumblr or Facebook account. Looking forward to spending time with you.
Well I'm off to find me some wintery book…

What I've been up to and why I blog...

Hello everyone! I hope everyone's weekend has been well, luckily I had a three day weekend instead of the usual two! I really needed that extra day, as I'm getting over a stubborn cold. I'm not sure if I told you all or not, but I work a LOT of hours September through December.

Tonight I am finishing up reading Lord Fenton's Folly, my review will be posted
on October 3rd! It's been really fun reading it, plus Carla over at Lipstick & Mocha just read it, so I get to chat with her tonight about it! We're planning on doing a review together, I have no idea how that looks but I'm sure it will be fun!

My husband and I watched it, he's not a big reader but he really enjoyed it. I am still trying to talk him into reading the series, in my opinion the Harry Potter books are even for people who don't read…

There’s an island off the coast of Maine that’s not on any modern map. 

Shrouded in mist and protected by a deadly reef, Trespass Island is home to a community of people who guard the island and its secrets from outsiders. Seventeen-year-old Delia grew up in Kansas, but has come here in search of her family and answers to her questions: Why didn’t her mother ever talk about Trespass Island? Why did she fear the open water? But Delia’s not welcome and soon finds herself enmeshed in a frightening and supernatural world where ancient Greek symbols adorn the buildings and secret ceremonies take place on the beach at night.
