  4. Oh gosh, there are so many books I am grateful for, so I guess the best answer I can think of this, I am grateful for books in general. Without them, my free time and my life in general would be pretty darn sorrowful. LOL! :p Thanks for the giveaway, Arlene! :) xoxo

  23. The best books I've read this year, the ones I'm really grateful for, are "Code Name Verity" and "Rose Under Fire" by Elizabeth Wein. My grandfather served during World War II so I grew up listening to his stories, and on a student trip to Europe we visited a concentration camp, so these books hold special significance to me.
