Candlemas

We just took down our Christmas decorations. Christmas really ends on February 2nd.

2013 Books


Here are some books that I have thoroughly enjoyed in 2013:

Lord of the Rings:
By J.R.R.Tolkien

I loved these books so much! And the movies are great too!
There are three books:

1. The Fellowship of the Ring
2. The Two Towers
3. The Return of the King

Emily Series:
By: L.M. Montgomery

Very much like Anne of Green Gables.
Enjoyed every minute of reading it.
Three books in this one too:

1. Emily of New Moon - Emily's childhood
2. Emily Climbs - her teen years
3. Emily's Quest - her adulthood

And Then There Were None:
By Agatha Christie

Mystery to its max! Took me less than a day to read it.
No one could pull the book away from me.

by Agatha Christie

Same as "And Then There Were None"

Jane Eyre:
By Charlotte Bronte

Have not finished yet, but it is extremely good so far!
Besides, it has some parts that may send a shiver down your spine!

Emma:
By Jane Austen

Listened to this one on my MP3.
I loved it - and will probably end up listening to it many more times-
I plan on reading more Jane Austen in 2014
