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?
Hello, all! I have been away for a bit. Lots of work and random stuff going on. As an update on the randomness, I will post a few photos from my visit to the Aquarium with my husband! I love the Aquarium. Hope you are all well! I should have a bookish post up soon.
I haven’t been writing at all lately. I work on a computer all day and by the time I get home, my brain is a little bit fried. (Go excuses!) Anyway, as I was getting ready for bed last night I paused in front of a poster I have on my wall. Its a picture I have always loved, as it always fills me with a sense of mystery. I was looking at it for a while and I suddenly had to pick up my journal and pen. I then wrote most of the first chapter of my next book. It was awesome. After not writing for weeks, even though I only wrote a little bit, it felt freeing. Are there any pictures that fill you with sudden inspiration?
Here is the poster I am talking about. I love this poster.
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 love storms. I love being outside in them, being at the beach watching the waves roll and crash and I love being inside all warm and cozy while reading. I also love reading about storms. How often have you just curled up with a book, reading about the cold, stormy weather and hearing the rain lash against the windows? There is just something about storms in stories that automatically draws you in. All the good sea-faring stories have storms, many fantasy stories have epic storms. The kind that make you extremely grateful to be inside reading about them. I love reading about storms in any fictional story I read.
Do you prefer reading about storms or sun and good weather?
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.
