Happy Chanukah!! Some of you may not know, Hanukkah is the festival of lights, and in certain tales, fairies show up as lights. To celebrate the Fae & Chanukah, we are talking about books that have become the beacon of light for us. What book or genre has been a light for you during 2020?

I’m super excited because this is a prompt that I came up with! Special shout out to Kristy for being my own personal beacon of light as one of the most amazing friends that I’ve been blessed with, and for taking the time to recognize my holiday amidst the overwhelming Christmas spirit this month.

  2. Happy Chanukah, Leah! I hope it’s a peaceful and bright one for you and your family!

    The first made me laugh; the second made me laugh and blush; and the third made me laugh, cry, and feel seen.
