December Monthly News

Welcome to the December Edition of Monthly News!
For the month of December I held a third PayPal giveaway. This time I sweetened the pot a little.
I signed up for more challenges, of course. This time it's the 2013 Sequel Challenge, the 2013 A To Z Book Challenge, the 2013 A-Z Reading Challenge, the 2013 YA/MG Fantasy Challenge, the 2013 Women Challenge, the What's In A Name Challenge 6, the 150+ Reading Challenge for 2013, BBC's 100 Books In A Year Challenge, the 2013 Non-Fiction Challenge and the 2013 A Thru Z Challenge
Also I turned 25 for the 11th time on the 10th. I had a great time, yes I did. Celebrated with family and friends.
For those who celebrated Christmas I hope you had a wonderful holiday. I hope Santa was good to you and your house and hearts were filled with love and joy.
And for today, I wish you a prosperous, healthy and very happy new year!

Comments

  1. I hadn't heard of some of the reading challenges. Although, my husband might get rather upset if I signed up for some and stayed up late every night reading. I'll have to check out The Iron Knight and might do a round up reading post on my blog for my personal favorites from 2012.

Scooby Doo: The Sword And The Scoob

AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL NOW AND DVD MARCH 23! RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is. The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
