You guys! I am so excited to welcome my dear friend Ginger back to the blog today. She’s been a frequent guest poster here at What Sarah Read, and has even participated in my Home for the Holidays feature for all four years. Needless to say, Ginger holds a very special place in my heart and I am so happy to have her here today. I was even more thrilled when I saw what she would be posting about, since I have just recently become obsessed with bookish candles, and the ones from Canterbury Road Co are some of my very favorites!

Happy Tuesday everyone! I want you to help me in welcoming Melissa from Live, Love, Read to the blog today. She’s here to spread her own holiday cheer as part of my Home for the Holidays feature with her top ten list of Christmas songs. Now I’m going to be difficult here and say I couldn’t disagree with her #1 choice any more than I already do, but the rest of her list is pretty great! Sorry Melissa, but every time I hear your #1 choice I die a little inside. But that’s ok, I still love Melissa and won’t hold that one poor life decision against her.

Happy Monday. friends. I’m so excited to have Alyssa from Books Take You Places on the blog today to help kick-off the two-week “Home for the Holidays” feature here at What Sarah Read! Alyssa is here to share some of her favorite cookie recipes to make during the holiday season. Every year I always say I’m going to have an epic weekend of baking so I can bring in goodies for my co-workers, but I never quite get around to doing it. That may have to change this year, because I am seriously craving all of the recipes Alyssa is sharing with us today. Continue reading “Home for the Holidays with Alyssa from Books Take You Places”→

You guys, I literally JUST ate dinner and this post has me ready for seconds! Seriously, this deliciously fantastic Fangirl Friday post from Kelsey is making me crave some noodles from the Thai restaurant down the street from my house. I think this may be the very first Fangirl Friday post that talks about a restaurant and I am here for it! I like to consider myself a big foodie and there’s nothing I love more than discovering a no name, hole in the wall restaurant that has AMAZING food. So, reading Kelsey’s post feels all too familiar. I just I could get to Pittsburgh in less than 9 hours so I could give this place a try. Oh, by the way, Kelsey should totally be a special correspondent for Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives! She’s found a real hidden gem.
I always love sharing my TBRs with you guys and this winter reading list of mine is no exception. I mean, would you look at all of these epic books. SO many amazing titles to choose from. My list includes some rereads of books I absolutely loved (Furyborn and Reign the Earth), some upcoming books from debut authors and other 2018 releases!
Many thanks to the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookishfor another awesome Top Ten Tuesdayprompt! Looking at this list is totally getting me excited for cozy winter reading! I can’t wait to curl up with all of these books with some hot chocolate, my kitty, and all the blankets!
**Before we get in to the mini reviews, I have some breaking news!**
I decided to try something a little different with my reviews. I’ve fallen sooooo far behind on writing them (eight to be exact) and every time I sit down to try to get caught up I get overwhelmed and intimidated…losing any motivation I may have had. Actually, writing reviews has become my least favorite part of blogging lately which is why you haven’t seen one from me in so long. I know, I know…I’m a book blogger isn’t that what I’m SUPPOSED to be doing? REVIEWING books? Well, yes, but I also feel like if I force myself to churn out review after review, I’ll lose any creativity that may be inside this little pea brain of mine. Because of this, I’ve decided I’m going to try writing mini-reviews in groups and posting those three or four times a month. In between I’ll have more creative posts featuring a book or books I want to talk about more and then if I come across a book I absolutely LOVE and want to go on and on about, I’ll post a single, full-blown review.
So, that’s what I’m thinking for now. I’ll try it out for a bit and see what happens. My hope is that it jump starts my blog and allows me more freedom and creativity. Only time will tell.
In the meantime, I have three reviews for you today that feature three young adult fantasy books that I’ve read recently! I’d love to hear your thoughts on them in the comments below, so make sure you take a couple of minutes to let me know what you think!
It’s Thanksgiving week you guys! My favorite holiday of the year! There’s just something about getting together with family and friends to eat amazing food without the pressure of finding the perfect gift! Don’t get me wrong I LOVE Christmas and giving gifts to my loved ones, but sometimes the stress of finding the perfect thing is a little overwhelming! Thanksgiving is a time to be with those you love and to reflect on all the wonderful thinks you have to be thankful for.
Speaking of thanks…many thanks to the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookishfor another awesome Top Ten Tuesdayprompt! Pulling this post together brought back so many wonderful memories and really reminded me of how fortunate I am.
Today, I decided to share a mix of old and new books that I hold close to my heart. And I’m talking actual, physical books here…not just the story inside. I am so thankful to have these very special books in my collection. They each mean something different to me but they are all counted as part of my most prized possessions in life.
Welcome friends, to another edition of Fangirl Friday! Our special guest blogger is Kate from Nauti Girl Reads! Kate is a fellow New England girl and her fangirl levels knows no bounds! She’s an avid lover of YA and is never afraid of shouting about her obsessions from the rooftops…AND I LOVE IT!

Are you a HUGE fan of The 100? Have you heard of the CW show The 100 and want to learn more about it? Do you have absolutely no idea what The 100 even is? Well then, today’s post is just for you! I’ve got Holly from The Fox’s Hideaway here today so she can share her absolute LOVE for this show with all of you! I know this post may be old news to a LOT of you, since this show has a SERIOUSLY devoted fandom! Season four ended this past May but you have until sometime early next year to get all caught up. I still need to finish season three and watch all of season four and after reading Holly’s post, I need to do that sooner rather than later. Thank you SO much, Holly for such a fabulous Fangirl Friday post!
