Favorite book is The Grinch. We recite all the words when it comes on tv, it’s my sons fav book too.
My favorite book is the Bible (not to make this religious or garner sympathy votes) but this year in particular …I found comfort in my many romance novels to get through the hurt my ex caused our kids and I thrum his unfaithfulness …the Bible reinforced life will get better. The ultimate romance novel that solidified that one day I will breathe again/live/love again like many of the characters I read this year. Movie: Bridget Jones Diary.
