Are you getting excited for the holidays? I am. Just thinking about our wonderful Yule blog party makes me smile. And Thanksgiving is just next week! Time for family and traditions both old and new to make our season bright.
I hope all of you will join me in making this a holiday of fun, friends and a bit of magic.

What I liked:
This is a short novella and it hits all the plot points-characters, action and some pretty spicy action. This book is for an adult audience only. On the Evernight publishing website, it is listed as a level 4, the hottest level they have. It moves fast at only 50 pages and has a good plot with lots of heat to keep you warm this winter.
What I didn't:
I think I wasn't prepared for just how hot this was going to be. Wow. It was very well done, but there are certain scenes that were very, very adult oriented. Just a word of caution. Check the website for specifics.
I liked the werewolf story line and the mystery behind the murder at the party. The extreme adult nature of the book was a little surprising as I don't usually review novels with that level of heat. After I stopped fanning myself and clutching at a glass of ice water like a life preserver, I found that I could appreciate the author's ability to get the story across in a mere fifty pages. A good and fast paced read, with enough heat to probably melt my e-reader.
Brainiac Tessa McClean’s newly discovered magical powers give her an escape from her self-absorbed parents. But the thrill of being a witch fades when she learns of a rival coven and begins to suspect her own coven’s motives. Evidence tells Tessa to trust one side, but instinct drives her toward the other. When the school’s scrumptious delinquent, Hayden Anders, offers Tessa self-defense lessons in exchange for tutoring, his timing couldn’t be better. Although hanging out with him is a necessary evil in Tessa’s fight to stay alive, resisting a bad-boy she secretly yearns for might be more than she can manage. Together, Tessa and Hayden work to unravel the mysteries behind the two covens to discover why they’ll stop at nothing to lure Tessa to their side. She must form an alliance with one of the covens before it’s too late. But the wrong decision could cost Tessa the lives of all who she holds dear — including Hayden.

I came across this wonderful challenge last night after wolfing down a few candy bars and thought...hmmm. Is that an exercise bike next to the bed, or is it really destined to be a coat rack for the rest of its unnatural life? I thought about it again this morning and well...I think it may be time to do a little more than sit on my broomstick all day. Yes, I walk a lot at work, but that only gets me so far.
I have been trying to give up sodas first and foremost. Those key lime classics really do get to me, so that has to be my once a month exception. That and the baby candy bars I allow myself to have once and awhile. I just need to make it a little longer between whiles...(smile). Water...tea-no sugar...water....more water. I am good with that most of the time. Just don't get near my three teaspoons of ice cream. Mine I tell you...Mine!
Would love to hear from you if you are in this challenge and what you are doing to try and get healthier for the holidays.
