Favorite Book Friday

Moonlight Kiss  (Spring Vacation Collection: A Timeless Romance Anthology Book 2) by Jose S. Kilpack contemporary romance. A delightful exploration of what is really romantic.

Chasing Tess (Spring Vacation Collection: A Timeless Romance Anthology Book 2) by Annette Lyon contemporary romance. Don't take a good thing for granted.

Dancing at the Flea Market  (Spring Vacation Collection: A Timeless Romance Anthology Book 2) by Heather Justesen contemporary romance. Sometimes long distance works out. Loved it.

The Best Laid Plans (Spring Vacation Collection: A Timeless Romance Anthology Book 2) by Sarah M. Eden contemporary romance. Though I was a little annoyed with the heroine, she grew on me. Her flaw was a flaw I don't like in myself. 

Picture Perfect (Spring Vacation Collection: A Timeless Romance Anthology Book 2) by Heather B. Moore romance. I've read this before, in "The Aliso Creek" series, and enjoyed it again.

Monday Quote

"Fantasy is escapist, and that is the glory. If a soldier is imprisoned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape? ...If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!"

~ J. R. R. Tolkien on escapism in "The Lord of the Rings"

Sunday Scripture

Esther 1:1-4

1 Now it came to pass in the days of Ahasuerus, (this is Ahasuerus which reigned, from India even unto Ethiopia, over an hundred and seven and twenty provinces:)

2 That in those days, when the king Ahasuerus sat on the throne of his kingdom, which was in Shushan the palace,

3 In the third year of his reign, he made a feast unto all his princes and his servants; the power of Persia and Media, the nobles and princes of the provinces, being before him:

4 When he shewed the riches of his glorious kingdom and the honour of his excellent majesty many days, even an hundred and fourscore days.
