Getting lost...

Yesterday was a productive day. The best part was the fact that I finished an amazing book. My library card is being put to good use. Every time I go to the library, I check out a thousand (exaggeration) books and something inside of me just wants to spend the rest of my life reading.

I wish I I could do that. Get lost in the world that is created within the book.

Get lost is what I did with two of the last three books I read. They were all historical fiction but they were each set in different time periods. Each of the books had an appeal. The only one that I had trouble finishing was The Gilded Lily by Deborah Swift. The characters did not appeal to me. The story was boring (atleast I thought it was). I was ready to move on to my next book once I hit the last chapter.

My Lord Wicked- Cheryl Bolen
The Gilded Lily- Deborah Swift
The Sister Queens - Sophie Perinot

I would definitely recommend the other two books, though. I got lost in them and was unable to put them down!

I am going through books like they were toilet paper. But I am so happy that I have the chance to read and enjoy the stories! I only hope that everyone else is enjoying their reading time, too!

Hope you week is starting off amazingly!
