Why hello there!
How are you this fine and freezing morning?
Seriously, it's Florida....and it's also 27 degrees and suppose to go down to 18.
Winter is upon us and WOW did it hit fast!
Oh well...I'd much rather it be too cold than too warm.
Why? Well simply put...you can always put more on, but when taking things off, you sorta reach a point of public decency and then you're stuck....so yeah, BRING ON THE COLD. Anywho...
You may have noticed the sudden influx of all things contest related here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers, what with five contests currently running (~whispers~ and more to come). Tis the season is what I say! The perfect time of year to spread a little cheer to readers round the world and there's a little something for every taste too! From the Chronicle Books Happy HAUL-idays Giveaway to Toto's Tale, a chance to win Other Goose or the wordy nerdy fun of Euphemania, plus a new addition to the holiday reading fun with The Christmas Chronicles....yep, I'd say there's probably at least one contest to suit each of you, so feel free to enter before you miss out!
Today's post isn't all about holiday magic, though that is available in plentiful amounts, it's about magic in places, things, and people that seem ordinary at face value, but extraordinary up close and personal. It's about one boy discovering where he comes from and what lies ahead for you see he, himself, may just have a bit of magic about him as well. Without further adieu, today's book of choice is....
The Wandbearer Trilogy, Book 1:
Wim Coleman & Pat Perrin
The only thing I had a small issue with (and it was indeed small, but still noticeable) was one part in which Randy, our main character, does a sudden 180 in regards to his confidence. It seemed too sudden and without proper explanation....but the rest of the story flowed quite well and I will certainly be interested in finding out just what is in store for our unlikely "family" as the series continues. The ending certainly leaves one intrigued for what awaits them once they reach the....oh no you don't...I'm not spoiling it for you. (hehe)
Until next time...happy holidays...and happy reading!
