  1. Thanks for the link to Deadly Sanctuary. That one sounds very good. Enjoy all your new books.

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and here’s to a great New Year of health and happiness.


  2. Don’t tell my husband… I’m stealing a moment to peak at what you got.

    Nice selection and congrats on the winning. Luck is on your side.

    Oops husband is calling my name… gotta run.

    enjoy the reads 🙂


  3. Sounds like you gave yourself a lovely gift, and love your grandma’s cookies. I wanted to bake some different cookies this year, thank you for sharing. I’m trying REALLY hard not to buy books, just not enough room on the bookshelf. So my books will be arriving from the library.


  4. I received for review The Elephant Keeper by Christopher Nicholson from Tribute Books Reviews & Giveaways.

    “I asked the sailor what an Elephant looked like; he replied that it was like nothing on earth.”

    England, 1766: After a long voyage from the East Indies, a ship docks in Bristol, England, and rumor quickly spreads about its unusual cargo—some say a mermaid is on board. A crowd forms, hoping to catch a glimpse of the magical creature. One crate after another is unpacked: a zebra, a leopard, and a baboon. There’s no mermaid, but in the final two crates is something almost as magical—a pair of young elephants, in poor health but alive.

    Seeing a unique opportunity, a wealthy sugar merchant purchases the elephants for his country estate and turns their care over to a young stable boy, Tom Page. Tom’s family has long cared for horses, but an elephant is something different altogether. It takes time for Tom and the elephants to understand one another, but to the surprise of everyone on the estate, a remarkable bond is formed.

    The Elephant Keeper, the story of Tom and the elephants, in Tom’s own words, moves from the green fields and woods of the English countryside to the dark streets and alleys of late-eighteenth-century London, reflecting both the beauty and the violence of the age. Nicholson’s lush writing and deft storytelling complement a captivating tale of love and loyalty between one man and the two elephants that change the lives of all who meet them.


  5. how to bake a perfect life looks like a fun read.

    Thanks for visiting my MM

    yes, my library has a free table. It is generally books that have been donated to the library and they don’t really want them so they put them out for grabs. Many times it is books they’ve discarded from the library.


  6. lol – I just bought How to Bake a Perfect Life too. It sounds really good, doesn’t it. I’m sure you’ll read it long before me so I look forward to your thoughts.
