I used to have three Facebook pages: a personal page, an author page, and a page for the Adult Education Centre where I work.
Now I’d like to let you know about a new, fourth Facebook page I’ve created called Lucy Shares Lovely Books
The purpose of this page is to let readers know about great books available.
You all know that I’m a writer who loves reading.
I started reading long before I started writing. I shamelessly admit I prefer reading to writing. Losing myself in a book is like experiencing another world.
I read avidly every day and I’d like to let you know about the books I’ve read and enjoyed, the books on my ‘to be read’ (TBR) list, and the books other trusted reviewers have read and enjoyed. I review with Brook Cottage Books and Rosie’s Book Review Team. I’ll also tell readers about new releases and offers. Join me in this exciting, literary journey.
This new Facebook page isn’t about me, it’s about other writers and books.
I’ll be gradually featuring all the books I’ve read in the last year. This week, I’m especially interested in featuring books themed around Christmas.
So far I’ve featured the following books involving Christmas:
1- What happens when Rosie house sits at Christmas and the owner’s son arrives unexpectedly to try to discover a family secret? A romantic and suspenseful novel by Helen J, Rolfe, which is ideal for this time of year!
2- What happens when an anonymous donor pays to have the church furnace repaired, and other locals suddenly find solutions to their problems. Is it coincidental, or the work of a secret angel?
3- I enjoyed On Christmas Hill because it’s so easy to love, so delightful to read, and so hard to forget. I read it last Christmas, but I’m looking forward to rereading it again!
4- A Christmas Ghost Story. A great tragedy occurred in 1899, in the North Yorkshire market town of Thorpe Morton, 59 people died at the market hall whilst celebrating Christmas Eve, many of them children. One hundred years on and the spirits of the deceased are restless still, ‘haunting’ the community, refusing to let them forget. Psychic investigators Theo Lawson and Ness Patterson are called in to help the spirits move on, but can they?
5- The Christmas Gift. A former senior investigator for the Justice Department moves to Kentucky to take possession of an unexpected inheritance, and he falls in love with a beautiful interior decorator. Together, they attempt to protect an abandoned infant during the Christmas holiday season. Laura Taylor writes unforgettable love stories.
6- Winter Tales. The Write Romantics present their first anthology of uplifting short stories perfect for this season.
7- I love Ella Quinn’s well-written, Regency romances. Why not start with a free novella: Madeleine’s Christmas Wish?
There are few pleasures around Christmastime greater that a comfortable armchair, a glowing fire, a glass of wine (preferably white, Rueda de Verdejo), and a great book in your hands (preferably kindle, and occasionally paperback). Heaven…
If any of you have written a novel including the Christmas theme and would like it to be featured, let me know in the comments below.
If you have a favourite Christmas novel, let me know in the comments, too, so I can feature it.
