Even though it is most definitely not summer yet. (Here, anyway.) I was thinking this morning about the books I love to read the most in Summer. I know that my absolute favorite book to read in the summer is The Historian. Which I most assuredly plan on reading again soon. It is one of my favorite books anyway, but there is something about reading it in the hot summer with a cup of really strong coffee that just seems magical to me. Other books I will probably want to read are anything from L.M. Montgomery. The way she describes nature and life in her books is fantastic. Then there are always seafaring stories. I love the sea and one of my biggest dreams is to learn how to sail and eventually get my own sailboat. There you have it, some of my favorite summer reading adventures.
What kind of books do you want to read this summer?
Back to my love of storms and winter. Here are a few pictures I took at the beach today. Definitely inspires me to write and read.
I am becoming very excited for the arrival of Fall. It is finally becoming my favorite time of year again. The time of year when the leaves turn brilliant colors, the rain begins and the comfiest sweaters and clothes can be worn again. It is the time of pumpkin pie and Thanksgiving. I find I am more creative in Fall and Winter, when I can hear the ring against the roof and windows and the wind howling. I love wandering along the beach during a storm, watching the anger of the sea. There is nothing quite like it. This is the time of year when you can curl up on the couch with a book and a never ending cup of tea. This is the best time of year for me to write. I love Fall.
What is your favorite thing about Fall?
Here are some various shots of the beach near my home in the evening and at night. I have shared some of them before, but I thought it would be interesting to have them altogether.
I am very much a Fall and Winter person. I dislike the heat unless I am going swimming in the ocean. But for books, I’m torn. I love reading books that take place in the winter and make me feel all cozy. At the same time I love books that take place in the summer and the heat, in far off countries or strange fictional lands. I absolutely love writing about the winter or the rain.
Do you prefer Summer or Winter in books and writing?
