GAR #4

Hi Everyone,

Last night, the Great American Read discussed love. The types of love and what would you do to protect or gain love. Below are my reading stats on the featured titles.

Books that I have loved:

Little Women (I have read this numerous times!)

Call of the Wild (Of course I am going to love a book about a man saving a wolf)

Books I did not enjoy:

The Great Gatsby (I find the narrator horribly whiny.)

Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen’s books have everything I should like, but I am not a fan.)

Authors that I have read:

John Green (Fault in Our Stars)

Nicholas Sparks (several titles and I saw the movie of The Notebook)

Books I want to read:

Americanah

The Joy Luck Club

What do your reading stats look like, when it comes to love?

Forgotten Book Challenge

Happy January Everyone!

This month has brought some unusual weather for us, here in the south. I even had my very first snow days, as an adult. Which inspired this month’s Forgotten Book Challenge…

I stopped the book I was reading and dove into my e-shelves to find a “snowy” book. That is when I came across Snow Angel by Melanie Shawn. I couldn’t resist the snowy cover and the adorable dog on the cover! So I started reading it… it is about a small town and a young newcomer.

Hurricane Matthew

Hi Everyone,

I am sure you may have heard by now that there is a hurricane named Matthew gracing the US coastline, with his presence. My boys and I want everyone to know that our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this horrific storm. Hurricane Matthew has caused a lot damage in places and we hope that everyone remains safe and sound through the duration of this storm.

My boys, Mom and I have been prepping all week for Hurricane Matthew’s arrival. The boys and I have our stacks of books ready and waiting, plus my tablet is charged to read as many ebooks as possible, before the battery runs out. I have two book lights for reading, so we are set! ๐Ÿ™‚ I will be back online as soon as possible, to let you know how many books we managed to conquer! Reviews will soon follow. I have several pending for next week. ๐Ÿ™‚

We hope everyone stays safe and our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has been affected by Matthew.

Stay safe and Happy Reading!

Enjoy!

What are You Reading?

Hi Everyone,

I had a rough health week, so sadly, I didn’t read as much as I had planned. Therefore today, I will be finishing up two books and reading Astonish Me by Maggie Shipstead. The weather outside is quite lovely, but my boys decided we should read in bed, today. They impatiently waited, while I gathered my things. I hope everyone affected by Hermine is safe and dry.

What are you reading this weekend?

Enjoy!

A Quote to Begin the Day…

“The reading of a fine book is an uninterrupted dialogue in which the book speaks and our soul replies.”

~Andre Maurois

 

Well, I’ll be! Someone has managed to put into words, precisely what reading feels like. Wow!

Enjoy!

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.

What are you Reading?

Hi Everyone,

Sundays are meant for reading! Today, I have been catching up on a couple of different books that I had partially read, including last month’s Read with Ariesgrl book. Jagger was very needy today. He wanted one-on-one attention and play time, so my reading was spotty today.

Tell me, what great books you have read this weekend!

Enjoy!

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!
