Let’s Discuss…

Good Morning Everyone,

On Saturdays, I will be posting a question or topic for us to chat about. I hope you enjoy the discussions.

To start, I just want to know what your favorite genre is? Do you love to time travel through Historical Fiction or futuristic Science Fiction? Do you want to fall in love with romantic characters through tear-jerkers or Happily Ever Afters? Or do you like to stick with the facts and truth that non-fiction provides?

As for me, I really enjoy most genres. I feel that as long as the book is well-written, then I will be able to escape into it. Some genres, like horror and sci-fi, I have to be prepared and in the mood to read them, but other than that I will read whatever I can get my hands on.

So leave a comment below, telling me what genres you love the most!

Enjoy!

A Quote to Begin the Day…

“Good books don’t give up all their secrets at once.”

                                  ~Stephen King

How much truer can this quote get? An amazing book draws you in, keeps you guessing and forces you to live in that world! Just a few of the authors whose books have kept me searcing for their secrets up until the very end: Dan Brown, Carlos Ruiz Zafón, and the duo, Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey. I thrive on hunting down the clues and trying to guess the outcomes, before the characters figure it all out. Very few authors have been able to write books that continue the suspense through the last few pages and I do a dance each time I discover a new “Clue Master.” (Remember, Nancy Drew was one of the first series that I read as a young child, and yes, I may have become a bit obsessed with solving “mysteries”!)

Tell me in the comments below who are some of your favorite authors that keep you on your toes!

Have a wonderful day!

Enjoy!

A Quote to Begin Your Day…

“You are never stronger…than when you land on the other side of despair.”

~Zadie Smith

 

 

I am not going to lie, I have been having a hard time this past week. My Mom’s Birthday was last week and it is the first one without my Grandfather. I miss him dearly, and even though I know he was shining down on her that day, my heart still aches with his physical absence.

Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!

Enjoy!

It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
My favorite day,” said Pooh.”

With very little sleep this week, I am not quite sure what day it is, but I sure do hope it is a great one for all!

Enjoy,

In Loving Memory

Hi Everyone,

On April 17th, my Grandfather was admitted to the local hospital… After a few weeks worth of extremely difficult times, my Grandfather finally found peace on May 5th. Though my family and I are grateful that he is no longer suffering or being tortured by the horrific disease known as Alzheimer’s, we still miss him dearly. We are back to taking each day as it comes, as we all, including the dogs, try to adjust to life here at home without him.

As you all know, I have been my grandfather’s caregiver for the past several years. I started this website as a way to stay connected to the outside world, while living in the Alzheimer’s realm. I cannot express in words how quiet my home is now, nor how much my heart aches each minute of every day. I am grateful for the love and support from my family and friends, as I know the healing process will take time.

I also appreciate all of your support and understanding over the years, especially while I have been absent over this past month. I send you all my sincerest apologies for my absence. Over the course of the next few weeks, I will be working hard to get caught up on emails and blog posts. I will also be updating the pages on here, especially the About Me page, as I start this new chapter in life.  I have always trusted in the healing powers of books and I look forward to continuing to share my experiences and reviews with all of you.

 

Hugs to you all. Thank you again for your continued support.

 

Sincerely,
~Ariesgrl
