It’s been so wet and rainy and fiercely windy here…and dark and dreary and warm…it’s been in the 60’s! At 8:30 last night we were whipping flannel sheets off of the bed and zipping on cool cotton ones! I love the Olympics! It’s the perfect background for reading in bed. If you miss something it’s always replayed. Lucy and Roxie watch the ice skaters. Lucy seems to love ice dancing while Roxie prefers men’s figure skating…and she especially loves Nathan Chen. Lively skaters catch their attention!
Just A Few Books From Last Week…
These are all from Edelweiss…I love their newly revised format…it’s so much easier to find books…and their support system is awesome!
Last Seen Alive…“Thrillingly tense and twisty, a great read.” (B. A. Paris, the bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors)
“Just finished Last Seen Alive . . . it’s so twisty, turning and grippy. Highly recommend it! (Gilly Macmillan, the bestselling author of What She Knew)
“Fast-paced and chock-full of twists, Last Seen Alive is both absorbing and gripping. After reading it you’ll never dream of a house swap again.” (Paula Daly, author of The Mistake I Made)
The Story Of Our Lives…“Told year by year for 20 years, Warner’s character-driven novel follows the growth of four women. The characters are realistic and well developed, flawed, and easy to distinguish. The intense portrayal of modern life, women’s friendships and problems may satisfy fans of Debbie Macomber or Alice Adam’s Invincible Summer.”-Library Journal
The Late Bloomers’ Club… “delightful novel about two headstrong sisters, a small town’s efforts to do right by the community, and the power of a lost dog to conjure up true love”
frat girl…“A sweet, subversive deconstruction of frats and feminism, Kiley Roache’s debut will have readers sighing and snorting at Cassie’s adventure into fraternity life and finding her own truth.” –Christa Desir, award-winning author of Bleed Like Me and Other Broken Things
“Refreshingly honest and intelligently written, Frat Girl is filled with relevant topics and written by an author to watch!” -New York Times and USA TODAY bestseller, Julie Cross
So that’s it for my Monday…I just finished working out…after a shower I am going to settle in with my book…and relax!
Do you have a favorite time of day when you really love to just sit down and read?
Have a great day!

My that was a weather warm up, but I guess it may slip back again! You have acquired some interesting sounding books so that means happy reading. I tend to not have a special time of day for reading, I usually sit when I feel drawn to it!!
I guess I sort of read all of the time but especially if I wake up in the middle of the night. Thank God we have a big bed because it has to hold two kitties, my glasses, and my Kindle…I need to be able to grab my Kindle at all times!

I loved The Wife…I also enjoy B. A. Paris, so I’ll read whatever she brings out.
I’m not a fan of watching sports on TV…LOL
You are funny about sports and you stay true to your beliefs!

The girls love ice skating…you are too funny…but I love it too!! I have yet to try Edelweiss. I must go there and look around. You told me about it ages ago!
I am in the minority with all of my blogger buddies about Edelweiss…but I love it! Yes…my girls love to watch skating…snowboarding, too!
I love to sit down and read whenever I can find the time. Life (and the weather) have been crazy lately.
I totally agree! We are going to be in the upper 60’s again on Thursday!
I watched a little bit of the Olympics while I was working today. Some of those sports are weird. Enjoy your books! Have a great week!
Thank you! I know what you mean…the one with the brooms is especially weird! You can win a medal for sweeping!
I love watching the Olympics too… so relaxing. and if you get bored you can always read. 🙂
Last Seen Aliv sounds good…
You are so right about reading during the Olympics…after a while it sort of all blurs together!
I wish I had more or any time to read beside what I’m translating, but sadly my work takes up to 14 hours a day and leaves me too tired for more reading 😦
I can totally understand that!
PS your site uses one of those comment boxes which eats up comments if one puts a www address in it instead of https, which means one’s comments might disappear sometimes 🙂 Mine did this morning.
I am so sorry…it’s WordPress and I don’t know how to fix it!
I’ll have to check out those skaters. When I think of ice skating I think of Kristi Yamaguchi, Midori Ito, and Michelle Kwan. I feel it’s cozier at night to read, especially in bed.
You have to see Nathan Chen!
