What are you Reading?

Hi Everyone,

It has been a few weeks since I have been able to read for a whole day. Now that Jagger is strong enough to get in the bed, the boys and I have mapped out a fantastic Read-a-thon and Cuddle-thon day. We have been up for hours and have already finished a contemporary romance book. (Love Literary Style by Karin Gillespie.) We will be conquering these four books next:

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J. K. Rowling and Jack Thorns (a play)
The Curse of Beauty by James Bone (a biography)
Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich (historical fiction)
The Vanishing Year by Kate Moretti (contemporary thriller)

Yes, I believe in balance when it comes to reading and I am covering several genres today! Yay! Even my boys are so excited that it was difficult to pose for a picture, but we managed.

National Book Lover’s Day!

Hi Everyone,

How have you been celebrating National Book Lover’s Day? I spent some precious time cuddling with my Jagger, this morning. I thought today would be the ideal day to start a romance book about books! (Love Literary Style by Karin Gillespie.) Tonight, as I have tried to write this post, he has been wanting my full attention, Ozzy has moved my computer away from me and the internet has crashed. So I am calling it an early night, tonight, my fellow book lovers.

Let me know how you celebrated the day!

Enjoy!

Night Owl???

Hi Everyone,

As you may have noticed, I haven’t been around much this week. One of my pups, Jagger, has been very sick. Thursday night, we received news of cancer. He survived cancer once before, but this is a different type. We have been keeping him comfortable at home, over the past few days. This means, I have quickly fallen back into my night owl routine. I have been up all night, several nights in a row, making sure he is okay. Last night, I had flashbacks of when I was up late all night, when my grandfather wasn’t sleeping. During those nights, I was on this website a lot, working in between conversations, pausing when I heard noises, etc. Tonight, I am back online working, while listening for any noise, hoping my beloved boy will get a good night’s rest. Amazing how many years have passed, and yet it seems like only yesterday. I haven’t been able to read this week, but I have written several reviews that I will be posting soon.

Today, is also July 31st… Harry Potter and J. K. Rowling’s birthday!!! How did you all celebrate? Have you read the new book, yet? *NO SPOILERS, PLEASE!* My darling boys and I listened to the Harry Potter movies on television today, while enjoying a positive family day together. Soon, I will read the new book and I am so excited. There is something about these stories that feels like home and is very comforting, during difficult times.

Since I didn’t read a book today, I am relying on all of you, to tell me your Sunday reads! Leave a comment letting me know what story swept you away, today.

Enjoy!

Four years and look out…

Hi Everyone,

A certain surprise memory occurred for me today… Four years ago today, I received my first book review request from an author!!! I can’t believe it has been four years… With everything that has happened, and through all the bumps along the way, I wanted to say, I am truly grateful for your continued support. THANK YOU! You all have kept me going and I appreciate each and everyone of you.

Now hold onto your beach hats, because several reviews are headed your way!

Enjoy!

Hi Everyone,

It is a holiday weekend, which means an extra day of reading!

Do you like to read books in theme with the holiday? Do you savor a favorite title during your break or pick up a wish list book to enjoy?

As for me, I like to seize the opportunity to read a wish list book. If I can match it to the holiday, that’s an added bonus for me, but it isn’t necessary. I just like to think of a long, weekend as the ideal time to try and shorten the length of the ever growing wish list!!! 😉

What type of books do you read on a long weekend?

Enjoy!

Hi Everyone,

Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing Moms out there! In honor of this lovely day and the lovely women who raised us, today’s topic is about children’s books.

What is your favorite childhood book that your Mom used to read to you?

Mine is, Love You Forever by Robert Munsch! Mom and I used to read this book daily and I still have it memorized!

I got to say, I was beyond blessed that I had an incredible Mom, who encouraged my love of reading.

A Quote to Begin the Month…

In times of storm and tempest, of indecision and desolation, a book already known and loved makes better reading than something new and untried … nothing is so warming and companionable.
