Discover 3 Great Books Featuring 1 Dynamic Theme - A Season of Hope


Greetings fellow Book Dragons!

Three on a Theme is a monthly feature where I highlight three great backlisted books (older published works) that share similar subjects or topics.

In the midst of the holiday season, I wanted to highlight books that provide great illustrations of the first virtue of hope during the Advent celebration.  None of these are religious books or religiously themed, but rather, examples of stories that remind us of the power and importance of hope especially during trying situations.  When things around us are not the way they should be, hope exists and this joyful expectation creates a desire for things to happen.  It is only in the shadow of hardship that the true light of hope can be fully appreciated.


With that in mind, here are three great books celebrating hope!

Top 5 Wednesday: Books I Will Finally Read in 2017


Greetings Fellow Book Dragons!

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme within the book community that was created by Lainey of GingerReadsLainey, but is now hosted by Sam of Thoughts on Tomes.  If you're interested in participating, find out more on the Goodreads group.

This week's topic is Books You Will Finally Read in 2017!  These are the books that you meant to read in 2016, 2015, 2014, or even earlier like in my case and just never got around to it.  These books have been sitting on your TBR for a while and you really want to get to them.  These are not books that are upcoming 2017 releases, but older books that need your love and attention too!
