What (and Where) are You Reading?
A few weeks ago, I awoke to one of those days when I just want to crawl back under the covers. You know the kind. Low gray clouds, rain dripping from leafless trees and a chill in the air that you feel deep in your bones. The perfect kind of day to surround yourself with a cozy blanket and escape into the pages of a great book. I chose A Week to Be Wicked, a new historical by Tessa Dare that I'd been looking forward to for months. (Read my Top Dish review here.)
A few days later, the sun began a lively game of peek-a-boo with the clouds, temperatures climbed into the 70s and a gentle breeze lured me out of my cozy cocoon. It was a perfect day to relax in the hammock with Paris in Love, a charming memoir by Eloisa James that we'll be reviewing next week.
This past weekend, temperatures soared into the 80s, dogwoods and azaleas burst into color and the sun returned in all its glory. Time to slather on the sunscreen. haul out the lounge chairs and take my winter white body to the deck with a huge glass of iced tea and a fun, flirty contemporary. I chose Animal Magnetism by Jill Shalvis.
Where are your favorite places to read? Do your choices change according to the weather? The season? Your mood? What are you reading these days? Any recommendations?
Because I loved it so much, I'm giving away a copy of Tessa Dare's A Week to Be Wicked to one randomly chosen person leaving a comment today. Good luck, everyone!
