This time of year everyone it getting to make their Christmas list. But what do you get the book lover in your family or your best friend? Well you could get them a book and Im sure they would love that. But the question really is what book do you get them and how do you know they don’t have it? Well you could ask them, but then they would know what you got them. I may be 23 year old but I still love opening my gifts. I love not knowing it makes me feel like a kid again. You could get them a gift card to Barnes and Noble, Amazon or to there locally book shop, but I want to give you some other options for the Book Nerd in your life. These are all from real people. This post is to help you and to help the small business owner.
The Bennett Family Series
By: Layla Hagen
The Bennett family is a really big family. There are 9 siblings Sebastian, Logan, Pippa, Alice, Max & Christopher, Blake & Daniel, and Summer. I love this family. If I could I would be a Bennett. They have a family owned business and that has made them a rich family but they did not grow up like that. They lived on a farm, so they know all about hard work. Now that they are growing up their Mother and Father want grandchildren. So the oldest girl Pippa takes it upon herself to start matchmaking her siblings. I have to say that I have read hundreds of romance books and sometimes they don’t stand out. But I did not have that problem with the Bennett`s. Each Bennett story was different in their own way.
The Bennett Series
Your Irresistible Love – Sebastian & Ava
Your Captivating Love – Logan & Nadine
Your Forever Love – Pippa & Eric
Your Inescapable Love – Max & Emilia
This is a new show on Fox. Pitch is about the first women to pitch in the Major Leagues. I feel that its more then that though. This TV show is about not having limits. Its an old message but sometimes a new show or book will come along and really give it to you. Making you have the feels. This show will really inspire everyone too, not just women. Not only is this show good for women but also for women of color. This is a must watch show for everyone. Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunloury) is a young women who has had to push to get everything to make it to the Major League Baseball (MLB). But make no mistake, this girl has gone through a lot and some may say even more then a man would. I am not saying this isn’t hard for a man cause I think it takes everything in a person to be a professional athlete. But I feel that it will always be different for women. We have some so far in 2016 but still there will be people that feel this isn’t a women’s place to be with the men or that they feel they need to be different around them, and I feel that this show really shows that. Ginny really has a harder time then the other guys on the team. At first they didnt want her there and some let her know that. Continue reading

The Trials of Apollo: The Hidden Oracle
By: Rick Riordan
Goodreads Summary: How do you punish an immortal?
By making him human.
After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favor.
But Apollo has many enemies—gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go… an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood. Continue reading
