It’s been awhile since I last posted, so I thought I’d post about Thanksgiving. I will be away for a few days in the next week as I will be going to NYC and Washington D.C. with Johan.
I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving with your family and friends. I sure know I did! I should be back on the blog after we get back from D.C. and N.Y.C! :)
This time of the year there are plenty of things to be thankful for. It all reminds me of these statistics:
I am thankful for many things. Among the given:
- Thankful I have a roof over my head
- That I am not starving
- Thankful for my family & a wonderful boyfriend
- Greatly blessed that I am able to travel
- For my work that I love and enjoy
And you all know, I love showing pictures! So, here are some things I’ve been thankful for this November.
What are people saying on Amazon?
I’m not going to blow the story, that is what the book is for. I will say it’s a sweet story mostly taking place between a young lady named Sylvia and a little girl that isn’t what she seems. Great story! I highly doubt you’ll be disappointed you bought it, I’m not! – Samuel Vain
Very different from what I was expecting but in a good way. A unique take on trolls. I came to feel for the main character quickly. I felt her pain and loss, her wonder, and joy. The ending was a heartwarming surprise.
I look forward to reading more by this author – Tasha Turner
This short story is very well told and held me captivated till the end, it is so vivid that it is like you are there and see the events through the eyes of the protagonist.
I liked it very much because it has an aura of melancholy and yet it is happy too, it is poignant but never depressing. Silvia, the protagonist, is quite lost in its world of woods and solitude but several unexpected and mysterious things happen and the story moves on very quickly.
The whole thing delicately hovers between supernatural, fairy-tale style on the one hand and rational although strange and marvelous on the other.
You keep wondering until the end if the little girl is flesh and blood reality or fanciful product of imagination of Silvia. Devin Berglund was able to paint a beautiful and thoughtful picture of the landscape so I read it twice to enjoy all the details. While reading you can almost smell the woods in autumn and feel the cold wind through leaves , and most of all, feel the loneliness of a woman that lost her little daughter and her husband. – SdP
Come check it out, here! :)
So, this post got a bit longer (in pictures) than I had hoped for, but oh well! I just wanted to share a little of my life with you right now.
