New Year! New Blog!

 New Year! New Blog!

Happy New Year!

As you can probably tell from the title of this post I have some news. It's exciting news for Reading With Wrin. I have officially decided after over 3 years here on blogger to move the blog to a different website. That website is Wordpress! 
What caused this change?
Truthfully I've always been a little frustrated with Blogger for different reasons over the years. Now with so much other stuff going on in my life, being frustrated about this blog isn't something I wanted to have continued on. I truly do love blogging, reviewing books and the whole book community and I don't plan on leaving it anytime soon. 
So instead I have decided it's time for a new website with a new format! After trying out several different ones I decided on WordPress which is now where you will find all my book reviews, giveaway, and partnerships.

All across the country, people are heading home for the holidays. Special presents are wrapped beneath the tree, mistletoe is hung, the smell of cookies is in the air, but what if you don't have someone special to share it all with?

Will the magic of Christmas reach these characters? Or will they end up being a bunch of lonely grinches?

Thank you to the author for a free copy in exchange for my honest review.

Dear Santa by Nancy Naigle | Book Review | Blogmas

Dear Santa by Nancy Naigle #bookreview #blogmas #paperback #holiday #romance #hallmark #youvegotmail #adult #contemporary #christmasTitle: Dear Santa
Author: Nancy Naigle
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin 
Published Date: October 16th, 2018
Genre: Christmas, Contemporary, Adult
Page Count:338
Format: Paperback

My Rating: ★ ★ ★.5

Goodreads Summary: 
Angela Carson wants nothing more than to be the third-generation to run her family’s holiday store, Heart of Christmas, successfully. They’ve weathered over sixty tourist seasons, major hurricanes, and urban sprawl, in their old decommissioned lighthouse. But the national chain that set up shop in their small North Carolina town of Pleasant Sands may be more than Heart of Christmas can survive.

Encouraged by her niece to ask Santa for help, Angela gives in and lets the words fly in a way that, if Santa were real, would no doubt land her on the naughty list. What’s the harm when it’s just a computer-generated response?

Geoff Paisley has been at his mother’s side running the mega-chain Christmas Galore for the last ten years. When his mother falls ill, Geoff promises to answer the town’s Dear Santa letters in her stead. Soon he realizes the woman he’s been corresponding with on Dear Santa is Angela. How could the woman that grates his every last nerve in person have intrigued him so deeply through those letters?

When Geoff reveals that he’s her Dear Santa, will Angela be able to set aside their very public feud to embrace the magic of the holiday and possibly find true love?


 My Review:

Dear Santa is one of those books that feels like a Hallmark movie. For any other time of the year I would dislike this, but for some reason during Christmas, I'm all for it.

This book is full of family, holiday cheer, and some drama.

Inspire Catholic Bible | Review | Blogmas  #catholic #blogmas #bible #coloringTitle: Inspire Catholic Bible
Publisher: Tyndale
Published Date:  November 6, 2018
Format: Leather-Like Hardcover, Rose Gold

Tyndale Summary: 
Introducing Tyndale’s newest addition to the bestselling Inspire line, and the first—and only—Catholic coloring Bible. The Inspire Catholic Bible features over 450 beautiful Scripture line-art illustrations to color plus two-inch-wide lightly ruled margins with extra space to write notes and reflections or to draw and create original art. Inspire’s generous 8.65-point font is larger and more readable than most other journaling Bible fonts, and the high-quality white Bible paper is great for colorers and creative Bible journalers of all skill levels.

Inspire Catholic Bible’s New Living Translation text has been approved by the Catholic Church for personal reading and features the official Imprimatur. The Holy Bible, New Living Translation, communicates God’s Word powerfully to all who read it, and Inspire is a wonderful legacy Bible for readers to record their faith journey.


 My Review:

Thank you to Tyndale for sending a copy for me to review!

Inspire Catholic Bible | Review | Blogmas  #catholic #blogmas #bible #coloring
This is one of the prettiest Non-Gold plated Bibles I have ever seen! 
Inspire Catholic Bible | Review | Blogmas  #catholic #blogmas #bible #coloring
As a Catholic finding Bibles that not only have all the books of the Bible but are also more fun or explain things, better is hard to find. This one does exactly that! Each page has something on it you can either color while your reading, or the chance to write to the side. 

New Year! New Blog!

Happy New Year! As you can probably tell from the title of this post I have some news. It's exciting news for Reading With Wrin ....
