Blogging #atozchallenge M is for Magic

M is for Magic MagicianMagic…it’s what happens when you open a book and fall into another world. Sometimes it’s time travel, sometimes it means crossing an ocean or a continent…sometimes it can even take you to world that are yet to be discovered…but hang on because the trip is wonderful.Globe

For me, reading really is a magical experience. Lost in a good book I forget about the things that bother me, I forget about misses deadlines and waiting laundry…these things can wait while I spend time with my new friends. I like family lifestyle stories, but if there happens to be a touch of magic – or a stretch of imagination – in it, so much the better.  My favorite is seeing ordinary people in somewhat extraordinary circumstances with a miracle or two thrown into the mix. A book like that and a cup of hot chocolate and I am set for the evening.

If you have a magical book that you’d like to share, please leave a comment. I’m always looking for a good book recommendation.  Leave the title of book you enjoyed and tell me why you enjoyed it.


About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
