I Am A Reader, Not A Writer

This one is Hosted at the Booking through Thursday Blog.

Any books or authors you hate? Why? Is it the writing? The stories? The author’s personality? And—would you read their work anyway?

Oh dear…well yes I rather dislike Charlaine Harris these days. I of course read all the books but I can’t forgive her for what she did to the characters in the last one. Nope I sure can’t. Other then that I can’t think of any I hate….dislike yeah but not hate.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Musing Monday is hosted over at Should Be Reading.

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

When you have made a big life change do you see your reading habits or choice in books changing? The last big change I made I did change habits some but on the newest one I have fallen back into a comfortable genre. One that I enjoy with characters who are familar to me.

An American Girl in Italy by Aubrie Dionne

182 pages

An Italian paradise is the last thing she wants… but the one thing she needs!

Surely any girl would kill for the chance to tour Italy’s most famous cities for the summer? To experience the warmth of the Tuscan sun, the culinary delights of the pizzerias and caffés and to stroll along the cobbled streets of the City of Love itself…
Any girl apart from ambitious oboist Carly Davis that is! For her, the Easthampton Civic Symphony’s latest European tour is one massive inconvenience. She can’t even put her smartphone down long enough to snap a picture of the Coliseum.
Only, there’s one Italian attraction that Carly hadn’t quite expected to be a part of the tourist route…

Tour guide Michelangelo is as dark and delicious as Carly’s morning espresso. And when she needs a few lessons in the language of love to land her an important gig, he’s a more than capable tutor.

But with her promising career back in Boston, can Carly really afford to lose her heart in Italy?

My Review:

Who knew that one of the darkest times of my life would be the perfect time to read a fun little romance. I won’t go into the details of my drama, but this was a fun and fantastic little book. I truly enjoyed the story and travel through Italy. Going to Italy is one of the items on my bucket list! This book is so well written I almost felt like I was there so I didn’t have to go later! You can tell a lot of research went into it, things seem accurate and the story flows very well together. My only small complaint is that it was too short. I would recommend this one and give it

 

5 diamonds.

Do you read mystery novels? If so, why? Is it the mysteries themselves that appeal to you? The puzzle-solving? The murders? Or why don’t you read them? What about them doesn’t appeal?

I read them sometimethem, sometimes itnds on my mood as well as the book itself. I have found that I tend to like cozy mysteries better then hard core ones because while I enjoy the puzzle solving I like regular life as well. Might be a little odd but hey odd, but to my mind.

Being that I just completed a move that had me purge some of my books. I ask this, how often if ever do you purge your books from your shelves? Or for that matter your ereader.

Well this blog will be going on hiatus or I will be doing posts spotty at best for the foreseeable future. I hate saying it and chances are I will keep up with it better then I htink.

I am in a bit of shock over my personal life right now. Feel like I have been hit with an atom bomb. Just trying to dial back on things while I process. Though I know sometimes routine helps me process. So I may keep up but hey the warning is there.

Okay this one may be a little TMI for some put it is on my mind. When you are suffering from cramps or other girl related disomfort does it effect your reading? I have been finding lately it is taking my focus WAY off.

It is Sunday again and I am afraid that I have barely the energy to lift a hand let alone to much else. The good news is I can still have a book read to me one way or another so I am going to work on finishing the Widow of the Larkspur Inn, again not the books fault I have not finished it until now it has just been one of those things I have been to busy to get to. A busy week overall.

The cuteness of the day is a pile of critters around me and they are being lovely snuggle bunnies which I rather need about now.

Also a belated Happy Birthday shout out on this blog (I gave a proper day one on my Birth of a Notion blog) to One Mr. Benedict Cumberbatch.
