Bookie Friends Favorites Challenge 2012

I'm nosy. I like to know what everyone is reading. I have found some really interesting books this way. I found been introduced to many authors I did not know through Bookie Friends. So when I came across this challenge I thought it would be a fun and easy way to find some treasures. Okay so it also legitimizes my being nosy. That is a bonus. If you would like to hop on and join in the fun, (especially if your nosy and want an excuse for it), check out the rules and sign up HERE

Basically the way it works is after you sign up, you put up a list, (with Links), to 5 of your favorite books. I know I have hundreds that could go on this. I promise to keep it at 5.  Add the Challenge button to your blog. 
Then you visit the blogs of the others participating and you choose at least 3 books, (it can be more), that you will read and review. They can be chosen at one time or as you go. When you make a selection you need to post it with a link back to the person who suggested it.

Savvy Diva's Take on 44 Days of Random Thoughts &Observations by Jahzara

Savvy Diva's Take On  44 Days of Random Thoughts & Observations by Jahzara Paperback, 184 pages Published by Jahphut
This book is being reviewed through Virtual Tours. Book was provided for review. No compensation was received for review. All opinions are my own.
The Savvy Diva's Take On 44 Days of Random Thoughts & Observations is exactly what it says.

Some are funny and some are serious. Most of them, I found, I could relate to. I like Jahzara's writing style. She talks to you as if you were with her. This brings you comfortably into her thoughts. I find this a good book to use for reflections. Jahzara talks about things most women have experienced or know someone who experienced it. Several times reading the book I was in full agreement with her.

                Snow falls all around my tiny cabin nestled deep within the French fort. I lay bound to my bed, large with child. My only companions are the wife of the French captain and her children. Today is Christmas Eve.  I watch the snow fall outside through my window.  I wonder if we were in France, where might I be? I can only imagine the grand Christmas ball thrown at Versa…
