Happy Thanksgiving!!! Let’s eat!! :D

I am SO thankful for…

All of you. Always here with me, laughing, or crying, or fuming over books. Giggling and teasing each other over our book preferences, and yet, we’re so bonded, BECAUSE of our love of books. My very best friends are right here.

*big squeeeeeeezy hug to you guys*

I’m thankful for my family (and my mommy and sister that are very much a part of our book world), all the authors that keep us squirreling and hoarding way too many books to read in a lifetime, and yet, continue to indulge us. I’m thankful for every overloaded TBR list, for too many choices (how lucky are we??), and for every single book I’ve read, and for every single one I’ve yet to read.

I’m thankful for this blog that gives me a daily outlet to *squee* over books, to make lists and keep my book hoarding in order. ;) It’s our virtual book club, but best of all, it’s our virtual friends club. I love that we KNOW each other, our lives, our successes, our mishaps. Our hilarious stories, and bev’s recaps. ;)

I’m thankful for the internet because… us. I am SO thankful for… everything. :D !!!!

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again… and again.

My cup runneth over.

You are so sweet Maryse.
This is wonderful.

I am thankful that I found all of you and then found the courage to talk to you all. You make me laugh almost every day and that is a wonderful thing.
I am thankful for our books and those who write them. For all the artist who create the music I put on repeat or the shows I disappear with.
And yes the web. That I can watch shows being made in Korea, listen to a song the second it is rec’d, and open any book at any time.

We’re SO thankful for you too, Maryse!

This year started out being the best I’ve had in 14 years, yet it’s ended up also being my worst. And I’m more thankful than any of you know for being there with me through all of it. I’m extremely thankful for all of you!

I am thankful for you, Maryse! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!! <3

Love you guys!!!!

This is a place where book nerds are the cool kids. ;)

My heart swells when I think of all I have to be thankful for.

And this place is one of those at the top of that list.

I also put this on the other post, but I want to repeat it here because it is so meaningful to me and I haven’t really said much about it in the past. All of you ladies and this “virtual hangout place” has helped me more than you all know during my darkest moments when my hubby has been gone over the years. I have had some days of feeling so despondent where I just wanted to curl up and shut down, yet all it took was a visit here and I would be on my way out of that dark place.

I am thankful for my friends and family and for the fact they love me.

I am thankful for Maryse and for her creating this place where we can gather.

I am thankful for books and the authors who gave us those worlds to get lost in.

I am thankful for our country and the amazing life it has afforded us.

And I am eternally thankful to all of you for what you have added to my life. I love you all. Truly. :D

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I’m so thankful for this blog. It’s the first thing I check in the morning while having my coffee. I’ve been opened up to a whole world of books I would’ve never read without the reviews and comments on this blog. I rediscovered my love of reading and it’s all thanks to everyone here. Thank you Maryse for all you do and all the work you put into researching books and providing us with a one click stop to everything book related.

*hugs Maryse*

*group hugs everyone in the blog* (I’ve got really long arms. No wait, that’s creepy!)

*non-creepily hugs everyone*

Tessa November 23, 2017 at 8:17 PM

*hugs* A big thank you, Maryse for just giving us a place to enjoy the thing we adore.

I’m thankful for family who understands my sudden need to avoid people. I am seriously thankful for this blog, where I can be an introvert and not worry about how I’m received since we all love the same type of books. Grateful to authors who write for the love of writing, and who love their fans who adore what they write.

I’m thankful for all the sharing done, here and in “irl” where we all learn and enjoy new things that others love. Not just books, but music, art, different ideas and thoughts, and different perspectives of life.

Also, I’m super grateful for ebooks. I can read my books, lock it up, and no one knows what I’m reading or any little kid is going to accidentally read what I have open.

*gasps at Jan’s super-creepy long arms!! Could she be a lizard alien?*

*stares at bev’s arms…*

*snuggles Amy*

I love your awesome posts!!!!!! Never change.

Happy thanksgiving, Maryse. You have brought so much joy in my life (when I had worse times) and I cannot be more grateful or you and your Blog. You made me fall in love with romance books through Christian and Travis. I became a romance reader because of YOU. Last year I started my own blog and have enjoyed it. You brought out a romance junkie within me. Thank YOU.

I hope you have a wonderful thanksgiving.

*sniffle* Awww, Maryse! I love you! Seriously, I am so thankful for you and all the hard work you put into this *home* for us… Your book family. It is truly because of you that we’ve all found each other and made lifelong friendships…a true gift that you’ve given us and I treasure it, every single day.

I’m also thankful to all of you for putting up with me… :lol: I love our family! I’ve got all the happy feels today.

To any of our authors that may be peeking in…keep writing ALL of the words! We need them in case of an apocalypse! ;) In all seriousness though, thank you all for your time and talent that you share with the world… Your books are what brought us together! You’re all amazing and we so appreciate you.

I’m also happy/thankful to report that I’m home from shopping… At 2am. (Come on Cyber Monday… *giggle*)

Happy Thanksgiving (a little late) and Happy Black Friday! *big squeezy hugs*

Maryse- THANK YOU for everything you do to bring all of us the latest book finds. I love reading this blog and connecting with you and all my book book friends. I am so thankful for every moment here that I have laughed, cried and spit coffee on my computer.

Happy Late Thanksgiving!! Have a house full of family!!
