If you want to find out the behind the scenes history of Christmas, then Christmas: A Biography will give you an in-depth summary in condensed volume. I’ve researched the history behind the beloved holiday and this book sheds light on so many other topics including : how Santa Clause came to be, when wrapping presents became a thing, how much does religion really have to do with this holiday and how the holiday has morphed over time.
I received this book from NetGalley for free in exchange for my review. When I saw a finished copy I grabbed it from the library. If you enjoy history and holidays this book may be the perfect combo. This book didn’t personally grab my attention right away, but I came away from reading it much more educated on the background of Christmas.
Who can’t resist reading about one of your all time favorite places even if you have yet to actually visit? In second grade I got to watch, “Anne of Green Gables,” the Kevin Sullivan production. It was breathtaking and Megan Follows will forever be Anne to me. I have watched the new version on Netflix. I was very negative about there being a new one. I chanced and watched it. It’s easily as fantastic as the previous mini series, possibly even better. Gasp. Very sacreligious I know. When this title became a possible ARC I’d be alllwed to read I jumped at my opportunity.
This lovely book takes the reader on a visual delight of the many wonders of Prince Edward Island. The photos show the island at different seasons. This book also, talks about the author of Anne Of Green Gables, Lucy Maude Montomgery otherwise known as L.M. Montgomery. If you like reading about your favorite author’s life then this book will leave you craving to read more about her. There are photos throughout of her and also, places on the island that inspired her novels.
If you are a big fan of Anne of Green Gables then this book will be a keeper once it comes out. The photos made me want to book my trip right away. It also, inspires one to want to learn more about L.M. Montgomery. I was provided this ARC for free via NetGalley in exchange for my review. Thank you NetGalley and Timber Press.
