Favorite Things To Eat/Drink While Reading

I can tell you right now I don’t eat when I read.  I need my hands focused on turning pages…plus, I don’t want to get anything on my pages or Kindle while I read!!  It just doesn’t work out too hot for me…haha.

CirkulCirkul…I just tried their $5 trial and I got hooked.  So did my kids!!  It’s a fun way to flavor your water where you control how much flavor you want!!  If you’re interested click here for more information.  You just fill up a bottle with regular water and then attach a “sip” filled with flavor to the top and well…sip!

 

coffee

 

Coffee…well, I brew a cup of fresh coffee, add a little bit of sugar, and 13 ice cubes (yes, I count them out, haha) and shake it all together.  My own version of Italian Coffee!  It is SOOO good, the perfect amount of sweet and bold goodness!

 

 

I wish I had more to add to this list, but that’s about it.  That is pretty much all I drink…it’s not that exciting.  Like I said, I don’t like my hands to be distracted when I’m reading, I need them available for immediate page turning!!  What do you like to eat or drink when you read?

Books I’ve Read That I’d Like In My Personal Library

I am not a person who keeps books on my shelves.  After I read a book I pass it along to my reading circle and then I donate it.  There are so many books that I have read via Netgalley, my Kindle, or on loan from my local library that I wish I could pass around my reading circle…so here they are!

Those are the 10 I wish I had my possession to pass around my reading circle!!  Don’t worry, I have raved about these books to my reading circle and some of them have picked a few of these up!  Of course it’s easier when it’s handed to you, haha, but hey, reading can be a costly habit!!!  What are some books of yours that you’ve borrowed or have in a means that you’d love to be able to pass around to your friends and family??

Settings I’d Like To See More Of

This week’s topic has me thinking…what settings do I want see?

 

Scandinavia

Scandinavia…I’ve read a few Scandinavian noirs and LOVED them.  It is such a beautiful setting, I’d love to see it more and more!

 

NewEngland

New England…this is where I was born and raised so I LOVE to read books that take place anywhere in New England!!

 

Italy

Italy…we took a family trip last summer that started here and we’ll be going again next summer so it’s fun to read about places I’ve been and to pretend I’m there again!

 

Greece

Greece…this is a stop on our next family trip and I’ve been craving this setting in preparation!!  Maybe I’ll read some and be inspired to visit a few places!

 

Do you have any recommendations for books which have the above settings?? What settings do you want to read more of???  Happy Tuesday!

Auto-Buy Authors

I don’t have that many auto-buy authors, but I do have a couple, yes, 2…I’ll feature their last book published (which yes I own…and yes, their next books coming out I already have on pre-order).

summerof69

Elin Hilderbrand

ThePromise

Teresa Driscoll

Not that exciting considering I only have 2 that I don’t blink an eye at thinking twice about. I love Hilderbrand’s writing style and Driscoll is a crazy good physiological thriller writer.

Who are your auto-buy authors??

Books On My Summer 2019 TBR

 

I decided just to take a picture of my stack that I would like to get through…

 

SummerStack

 

*looks at you* *looks at me* *looks at you* Did I mention my summer break was essentially over and I’m back at work for a month before a quick 2 week break and then back to work full time?  *sigh*  I know this is Top TEN Tuesday and there are 13 books in this stack…not counting the ones on my Kindle I want to read…but I’m also a big seasonal reader so if I don’t finish these by September, they’ll be back on the shelf for next summer, haha.

 

What book should I read first?

Follow up to Winter In Paradise, this will be released on October 8, 2019.  Winter In Paradise left us on a cliff and I have been dyiiiiiiiiiiiing for this book.  I know I will be dying once again after this one because it’s a trilogy…the torture I put myself through!

Books That I Refuse To Let Anyone Touch

Oh boy…this is a TOUGH topic for me this week because I LOVE to share my books!  I don’t save my books, usually, and once I read them and pass them around my reading circle, I drop them off to a Little Free Library.

There is ONE book that I have recently come across that will not leave my possession and I will NOT lend out.  I am actually debating buying a second copy so I can share it with those around me because I love it so much.  I haven’t reviewed it yet (remember, I am still catching up with all my reviews) so I don’t want to say too much because I want to pour my heart into the review.

Some books touch your heart and leave a forever impression and this book did just that.  I cannot wait to share this book with you (pictures only, I’m telling you I won’t lend it out).  Here it is…

BetweenHelloAndGoodbye

It’s from an indie author who lives in Maine and it’s just magical.  Look for my review to come SOON!  What books will you not let leave your possession???
