Trying this again. I started reading it when all the hype with TV show started up and just could not get into it. I was frustrated by that as I usually adore historical fiction. Anyone else have difficulties getting into this book?

Bianca I had trouble getting into it. The second time I tried reading it I had to push through the first fifty or so pages to finally get pulled in. 11mo

Hello Littens!! I've been away from your positive, bookish selves for over 8 months! Because, well, 2020. But I'm back! How is everyone?

candority Welcome back! As @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego said, I'm hosting the #BestOf2020Swap. Sign ups close tonight! The idea of this swap is to create a package of some of your favourite books and goodies to send to another Litten. There are three tiers to choose from, based on how much you want to send and you will be matched with someone with similar reading tastes! 1y

Saw the #JoinIn tag and thought I'd do so. I've been a single mom now for 2 yrs. Those holidays have been fun for my little but hard for me. I had better hopes this time. This year my best friend invited us over for the holiday -but she backed out of that late last night/this morning, so it's bummed me out greatly. Don't even feel like reading my new books I got last night. Hoping the day improves. Thank you for listening & Merry Christmas Litsy.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego That's definitely a disappointment. You're little ones know you love them though, and that's what they'll remember. You're doing a great job mom!! ❤💚❤💚 2y
Bklover I am so sorry! That‘s an awful thing to back out on Christmas Eve! Trying to supply the magic of Christmas can be so hard as a single parent. Pull out all of the Christmas books you can find and settle down with some cocoa and your little one and read them all to her. When I am sad I find it hard to focus on my books too. Just remember- you AREN‘T alone! Litsy has pulled me up many times I can‘t count them all. Sending Litsy love to you!❤️ 2y
Victoriahoperose I‘m so sorry that your day didn‘t work out as planned. Sending lots of love and strength your way. I know it‘s hard but I keep telling myself that next year will be better. I hope today takes a positive turn for you and you enjoy your holiday ❤️❤️❤️ 2y

FantasyChick It sucks to have plans cancel like that, especially last minute. I know how hard it is to try and struggle to make the holidays great for the little ones when you're on your own. Trust me....they won't remember cancelled plans but the time spent with you! It will be magical no matter what. After bedtime, take some "you" time to destress. ?? 2y

BlameJennyJane My son and I spent many years alone on Christmas Day. Siblings had their spouse Christmases, parents traveled, boyfriends blew us off, etc. so my son and I created our own tradition of staying home in our pj‘s and watching Harry Potter movies. Now, a decade later, we won‘t even accept invites if we get them because we ❤️ so much it has become our special day (and now @toddred29). Many hugs! 2y

Nute It‘s tough when plans fall apart and those plans involve our children. However, I bet that the happiest part of your child‘s Christmas memories are the Mom&Me ones. Continue to create those special memories and make your own traditions and remember that they don‘t have to involve great expense...they just need warmth, honesty, and love! Merry Christmas to you and your little one! 2y

I was helping a friend of mine clean out his house after his wife (also a friend of mine) passed away and their daughter gifted me with these! I'm not usually a big romance person but it makes me feel good to know books that my friend enjoyed are now gracing my bookshelves. Anyone see any favorites I can start with?

HeatherOnThyme I haven't read any of them but Bloodline of the Holy Grail is an interesting title. 2y
Born.A.Reader @HeatherOnThyme I thought so too! That and Emma are the only non romance she gave me, so naturally I'm more intrigued by that title. 2y
