What a Fortune (also, a must-read book)

Check out this Facebook fortune cookie I got the other day: 

Never lose the ability to find beauty in ordinary things.

I love this cookie so much I had to share. What are some of the ordinary, yet beautiful things you’ve seen lately?

A while back, I stopped doing book reviews on this site because, well, I started to feel like book reviews were overtaking my posts. But I didn’t want to stop discussing books, so I started a book blog called Star Crossed, where I periodically—with apparently no real sense of schedule—post thoughts and discussions about books I’ve read and loved. Today, we’re talking about The Peasant Queen by Cheri Chesley.  

Here’s the short blurb:

After running away from home, Krystal is transported to a faraway kingdom where an evil tyrant is bent on taking the crown - and Krystal's hand in marriage. But when she falls in love with the rightful heir to the throne, she must make an impossible choice: sacrifice her one chance at happiness or face the destruction of an entire kingdom.

Come on by and see what I thought. Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered into this way cool contest

Love that fortune! So important for us writers to see the world through a unique lens, yes?

Oh, I will put it on my list. I have to read 30 books for my last class. I need some good ones that will keep my attention!

That's truly a great fortune. I finished reading The Peasant Queen yesterday. My review will be up later this month. Hope you are having a great day!

I love that fortune cookie! But I don't think you need to be reminded of such a thing, seems to me that's just the way you are anyway. :)
