Hi everyone! I am YA author B A Binns , writer of contemporary and realistic fiction for teens. My tagline tells you what I am about - Stories of Real Boys Growing Into Real Men - and the people who love them.
For the first time ever, I am dealing with a severe case of bloggers block here at Romancing the Genres. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is entering my fogged brain.
I know this is supposed to be the happy time of the year. I should be decking halls, spending all my money and preparing for a family get-together. But this has simply not been a normal season, in any sense of the word normal. The world has become a scary place. Add in that I suffer from that winter curse known as Seasonal Affective Disorder or
I absolutely understand the allure of a good holiday related romance this time of year. Especially for those in the Midwest of the US like me, where snow is already piling high and a good fireplace is almost a survival necessity in winter. And nothing goes better with a fireplace than a glass of wine and an story with a Happily Ever After.
I'm using this all too short blog post to ask readers for their help. Usually I mention some of my favorite reads here. This time, I ask you guys to name some of your favorite holiday reads for someone who is only looking forward to the winter solstice - turnaround day, when days begin growing longer. This is the time of year when numerous people of various faiths hold holidays and festivals.
I could use some recommendations of books for the holidays. I bet some of you readers could use some additions too. So I'm hoping people will put some of their favorite holiday reads in the comments. I could use some recommendations I can use to help dispel my depression. An HEA, or even a HFN would go far to help me make it through the long nights of December and January.
Love, a very hopeful B A Binns
