As you know, in October I did a Horror Month which went down really well! So, I decided to do a Christmas Month! I have some wonderful authors and bloggers with guest post, Q&As and loads of giveaways!
Kicking it of is Darcie Boleyn!
Darcie Boleyn has a huge heart and is a real softy. She never fails to cry at books and movies, whether the ending is happy or not. Darcie is in possession of an overactive imagination that often keeps her awake at night. Her childhood dream was to become a Jedi but she hasn’t yet found suitable transport to take her to a galaxy far, far away. She also has reservations about how she’d look in a gold bikini, as she rather enjoys red wine, cheese and loves anything with ginger or cherries in it – especially chocolate. Darcie fell in love in New York, got married in the snow, rescues uncoordinated greyhounds and can usually be found reading or typing away on her laptop.
No Christmas would be complete without movies. Each year I have my favourites that I watch over and over again.
Here are my top five festive movies:
#1 has to be National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation – Growing up I watched this movie with my Dad every year and every time he would belly laugh until the tears rolled down his cheeks. It has such good memories for me and these days I watch it with my husband and children.
#2 is Home Alone – This movie is a classic. I loved it as a child and my children love it, especially my son. It never ceases to amuse us all and the ending sees me in tears every time.
#3 is It’s a Wonderful Life – A beautiful movie that always reminds me to appreciate what I have and, again, that makes me cry!
#4 is The Grinch – I just love that wicked green guy with his bah humbug attitude and I’m always moved by his turnaround and acceptance of the error of his ways.
#5 Die Hard – I can’t believe this was made back in 1988! Its exciting action scenes featuring the fearless, wisecracking Bruce Willis AKA John Maclane and its messages about family values get me looking forward to Christmas every year.
Warm your heart with this perfectly festive romance…
Lucie Quigley hates Christmas. It’s the time of year when everything goes wrong in her life. So this year, when she’s asked to be a bridesmaid at her friend Petra’s Manhattan wedding, she jumps at the invitation to escape the festivities.
Dale Treharne has been best friends with Lucie for as long as he can remember. He’s used to looking out for his oldest friend and when she asks him to be her plus one, he can’t seem to find a reason to refuse. Instead, he sees it as a way to help Lucie get through what is, for her, the most miserable time of the year.
In New York, as the snow starts to fall, Lucie and Dale start to realise that their feelings run deeper than just friendship. But can they overcome their pasts, and make it a very merry Manhattan Christmas?
