What’s Going On…
Wow it’s been a week!! On Monday the hubs and I left at 8 a.m for a seven-ish hour car ride to Charleston, SC. We shopped, walked, ate and drank our way through three lovely days in the historic port city.
It was really a nice time, though not quite as relaxing as I thought it would be! After visiting Savannah, Ga a few years back, I was expecting a similar style vacation. Charleston is much more a of bustling city and there was so much to do and see. And soooo much walking! Oh my I was unprepared for all the walking! Those narrow, uneven sidewalk are freaking murder!!
I’ll treat you to a few quick photos from my phone. I’m sure I’ll bombard Monday’s post with many more once I get my “real” camera photos loaded onto my computer. Charleston was beautiful and a place any Southerner, or East Coaster should put on their to – see list.
In Book News…
There isn’t too much to tell book – wise lately! Part of my vacation was NOT reading. Last week, I finished The Night Mark by Tiffany Reisz. I thought it was okay. I know if you’ve read this you’re saying WHAT!? Just Okay!? But let me explain. I can totally appreciate the book for the writing and Tiffany’s style. But on that note – this was a full out romance novel. Like a go back in time to meet your lover in a past life sort of romance novel. If you know me AT ALL then you know this was totally the wrong book for me. Reading the back jacket blurb I expected it to be women’s lit and a bit romancy. And maybe it was my failure in reading the blurb and getting the correct impression. But be warned this is a supernatural love story. If you love that fantasy, long lost loves reconnected sort of thing then you will LOVE this book. Sadly, that’s not me.
On another note, I had book mail awaiting me when I returned home! That will never get old. I adore getting book mail from publishers! This is in from Liz at Harlequin. It’s a huge deckle edge floppy hardback and that alone makes me want to read it! And – just look at that cover! It’s gorgeous. This seems like a perfect spring time read. It will be out in July
Hope you all have a nice Easter Weekend!
