In this warm weather, there is almost nothing I love more than sitting outside (preferably in a hammock), with a yummy sweet tea (preferably from Chickfila) with an awesome, addictive book. I love all kinds of books... romance, mystery, medical, drama. I much prefer fiction but I've been known to pick up a memoir or two in my day.
This summer, although I have a crazy little calendar, I'd really like to make time to dive back into books. Yes, I have a Kindle...and an iPad... but there's just something about HOLDING a physical book; bending the pages (which drives my husband crazy), folding over half onto the other, accidentally getting pool or salt water on the pages which forever shrivels the ends up (which I sort of love). I do love me a good e-book, but in a world full of technology, its fun to unplug, kick your feet up, and dive into an ACTUAL book. There is something about getting caught up into a story, making this fake world up in your head, picturing people for characters in the novel, and getting emotionally attached to the storyline.
I totally was that girl and made a Pinterest board for books I wanted to read in 2012...HA, I got about 2 done, and gave up... so its time to revisit, and update that list!
What do I need from you? SUGGESTIONS! Please, let me know your favorite books and tell me what you recommend! I'd really like to finish a few books before the summer is over. I'd like to challenge myself to sit on my patio (which I have yet to do; our apartment is on the second floor and we don't exactly LOVE our fighting neighbors, who seem to always be outside), fix myself a cup of tea, and READ!!
So, help a sister out? ;)
