I decided to get a little creative while highlighting some of my favorites from 2013. I selected from books that I gave a four or five rating. It was fun for me and nice to give the books one more mention.
The year began with a secret revealed in a rose Garden where a black swan did dwell. There was talk of true love that would never go too far. Then at nightfall the frost settled in and the creatures came out.
My thoughts became flat-out about love in all its damaged and twisted perfection. How
no gem, be it obsidian, onyx, or opal could ever rock me of my obsession or bring me more closely entwined with my forever attraction to tales of love, redemption, and things that go bump in the night.
I have made many the advanced arrangement so I didn't have to fight destiny for my reading time. I then made a toast to never falling into a tragic situation like ever being without a good book. I also want to make clear while I have never went so far as to lick my e-reader I have maybe drooled on it once...or twice. But we can keep that between us two, right?
There are many a society that would have me bound and make me walk in between the lines of manic rules against the reads that I love. They would tempt me and try to pull me away from the Alpha boys that I love so. They would take me to task for being unteachable. If things got too rough I would just go traveling to find pieces of home in with the Rock Chicks who have dangerous and hot nights.
Once there I would get all metaphysical and seek the origin of broken wings and strip away to the simple perfection in our stars. The light would dawn and there would be no signs of panic.
How could it be scandalous to follow your heart and read what you love? To find a book that can touch you, entertain you, educate you, or do all three, is an amazing wonder.
HAPPY 2014 to Everyone!!!! I wish us all a joyous year filled with endless good reads!!!!
