Hey Friends! I did a post like this via my co-book blog and I thought I would share all of it with you. First off I will share with you what I am reading at this time.
If you were following the post I did yesterday about Kresley Cole then you will know that this is where I am at in the series. I wont go into how I started reading these because I posted about it yesterday. I will tell you that Kresley Cole is a genius! I have enjoyed all of these books but 1! As far as the characters in this book… I tend to fall in love with the men of The Lore and envy the Women however I am not in love with Lothaire. I do however think he is brilliant!
I could go on and on about this series, so I am stopping myself there. What I really want to talk to you about is what gets me pumped to sit in my living room, while my husband sleeps before work, and just be still with a book.
First of all these get me stoked!…
I think all bookworms will look for a reason to read until we feel better. When I was going through a rough patch a few years back, I literally only read because it was peaceful. It was a time when I could forget about the Job I hated and the stresses of life.
The Struggle is real for this one! I literally feel this way with 90% of the books I read. That picture is so cute maybe she will be my next bookish tattoo!!?!?!? (I already have 3!!!)
When I was little and my mama would talk about books, I never understood what she meant until I was much older. I used to think “how can a book feel like a friend?” Now I completely understand because there are some books that you become so connected with,whether it be because of the plot, the characters or because it’s by your favorite author, you become friends and when that final page is in front of you and you’re excited because you finished, and you close the book you get a lonely feeling that one of your best friends is gone… at least a lot of people do.
Isn’t this the truth. I love it when I am sitting with my coffee and my book in the quiet hours of the morning and I can focus on the story. I am literally feeling giddy right now because I want to go grab my book out of my room, make another cup of coffee and just read!
I love to inspire people to read, because I am easily swayed when someone describes a good book. My sassy red-headed Ashley told me when we first me that I needed to read A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray because it was her favorite book. When I asked why she explained…
“in highschool I reached a point where I was over reading, i was just done with it. When I got A Great and Terrible Beauty I couldn’t put it down and it was the first book that made me fall back in love with reading.”
If that does not get you inspired then I do not know what will!
Look at how cozy these nooks are! This has to get you stoked to read right!?!
Okay okay I will stop because all I want to do is read and its time for my run so, your mission should you choose to accept it is grab a book you are stoked to read and just read! Be lazy this one Saturday and enjoy a cup of coffee and just be still!
