Birdsong28 Sarah Morgan is Queen of Christmas!!! 📚📖 12mo
Andrew65 @Birdsong28 Are her books any good? 12mo
Birdsong28 @andrew65 Yes!! If you like romance novels. The best set to start with is the O'Neil Brothers trilogy. Then there is the Puffin Island trilogy. Then the six part series Manhattan with love. She also has some stand alone's as well which I can't wait to start. 12mo

#winterwonderland #afairytaleofNY

Taking inspiration from @GatheringBooks here! In 2007, after I‘d finished chemotherapy we decided to take a #bucketlist trip to the USA with our 2 year old daughter. Going to New York for the first time really did feel like a fairytale. This is Lucy at the top of the Empire State Building in high merriment. 😊

Velvetfur Isn't she just adorable!! That's a great story too, I'm happy for you treating yourself to that wonderful hol after the chemo x 12mo
TrishB Lovely tale 😍😘 12mo
Centique Thank you both! @Velvetfur @TrishB 12mo

Here‘s a book of fairy tales and a book of New York stories. #afairytaleofny I got the Grimm book as a gift for my 7th birthday and I remember being horrified when I read the undisneyfied version of Cinderella. Way more gory. #winterwonderland

TrishB Yes - the originals are definitely a bit heavier! 12mo
Cinfhen Wow!!! How awesome that you saved your copy!!!!! 12mo
Blaire @Cinfhen yes! I held on to it because my friend had written an inscription on the inside. 12mo
Cinfhen Good for you!!! I wish I was smart enough to have done that 12mo
