You know that feeling when you finish a good book – No, not the feeling that your best friend is moving away. No, it’s the other emotion – the one that comes right after you’ve cried at the last page or thrown the book across the room because of the ending…… Yes, the anxiety of choosing your next read. Will it be up to your expectations, will it fill that void, and will it be as good as the one I just read. The angst and torment of booklovers everywhere !To get lost in this raindrop click for more

While I’ve been on this small social media break, I think I’ve found the genre I prefer reading. Yes, this came as a complete surprise to me since I thought I liked to read a variety of things with no clear favourite.

Usually I’d be finalizing our summer outings right now but, unfortunately our home took on water this spring and the repairs costs deflated the vacation budget. I do love to travel, especially little road trips! I won’t be able to do as many as I would have liked this summer and that got me thinking.

For a first timer, I think it went rather smoothly. My goal was to finish the book I was currently reading and complete at least two books in my Canadian reading list. Done, Done and DoneTo get lost in this raindrop click for more
For a few years now, I’ve been seeing the bout of books hashtag pop up, but always thought life was too busy for me to participate. Move over busy life, I’m participating this round!!To get lost in this raindrop click for more
Book wise, April had me showered in awesome reads ! I was able to knock out four reviews. I may have been able to squeeze out another one but April almost whacked me down a few times. So yes, April on a personal level has been hectic. Many trips to the clinic with the kids and a basement full of water. This lead to major excavation work around the house. It’s a headache but at least I have my books to retreat into when things get crazy.To get lost in this raindrop click for more
While I was out of service, the one thing I missed most was reading. I have a few book reviews that need writing. I may also start up my 365 photography project.To get lost in this raindrop click for more
Sometimes I go out and forage and come back with slim pickings. Other times I have to clean out shelf space for the mass of new arrivals. In both cases, they are always welcome into my book space.To get lost in this raindrop click for more
I wish I had some sort of scientific formula to help me choose what book to read next. I’d input variables such as : current mood, last book read, food cravings, what I’m wearing, if I prefer coffee or tea… and out would pop the title of my next read.
