Literary Junkies- July

Pink Heels Pink Truck

1. What are you reading?
I just started reading "Landline". I love all of the Authors books so I have high hopes for this read.
Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it’s been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems besides the point now.

Maybe that was always besides the point.

Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect to him to pack up the kids and go home without her.

When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .

Is that what she’s supposed to do?

2. Do you find yourself reading more of a particular genre during the heat of summer?
Longer Summer days don't really change my reading genre, but I do find myself reading more.

3. Who are your favorite book villains (either to love or to hate?)
Lestat.... he is and will always be my first vampire villain

4. If you could choose one author’s writing powers to harness, who would you choose and why?
I would have to choose Diana Gabaldon, she is the amazing lady behind the "Outlander" series. On average her books are over 800 pages, but some how she writes the scene so beautifully that just fly through each page.

5. Do you read one book at a time, or read multiple books at once?
I read one book at a time, but have at least two books waiting in the wings. 

6. What are some of your favorite non-fiction books? 
Does Chelsea Handler's books count?

Happy Reading,

Literary Junkies- June

Pink Heels Pink Truck
Today I'm linking up with some great ladies and sharing my love for books. 

1. What are you reading? Tell us about it!
"The Clockwork Prince" By. Cassandra Clare
The 2nd book in the "Infernal Devices Series"

2. Library or bookstore?
Both- There is just something I love about the smell and atmosphere of a used bookstore. Thanks to the digital age you don't even have to physical go the library anymore. The ease of just downloading a book from their catalog is great.  Plus FREE is always a good thing.

3. What book(s) have you read and re-read several times?
I have ever intention to reread several series over again to get a fresh prospective when new books in the series come out. I have yet to dive into a previous book other than Game of Thrones and Black Dagger Brotherhood.

4. What is the first book that made you fall in love with reading?
I can remember reading "Stephanie Plum" and the "Trueblood" series years ago and becoming hooked on getting lost in a book. Its been an amazing journey since then. 

5. Who's your favorite author? Tell us so we can binge-read!
I could never just pick one....here are a few must haves
J.R. Ward, Karen Marie Moning, Kresley Cole, Katie MacAlister, George R.R. Martin, and Julie Garwood

Keep Reading,

Green Inspiration Monday - indoor plants

I love having plants indoors. They add color, life, joy, and contribute to improving the air we breathe.

There are tons of different options from succulents to real trees. It really depends on what kind of care they require that works with your life. I recently just added a small ivy plant to my growing indoor garden. You can check out my Instagram to see both my indoor and outdoor gardens. 

Here are some pictures to inspire....


Happy Monday!
