*Stars and Butterflies

It's not Friday yet? What?

First day back at work and I wasn't looking forward to work. I was looking forward to socializing with coworkers but actual "work"...ehhh, I could just skip the "work" part.

Yesterday was fairly productive. I got a lot done and even squeezed reading time in!

I hate the feeling when you are waiting at a doctor's office or for your turn at a salon and you realize that you forgot the book you were reading. It happens to me often and I always end up starting a kindle book while I wait since
a) I always have my Kindle with me and
b) I hate to waste valuable reading time.

That's what happened to me last week. I had started reading a library book (hello... time crunch!) and brought it to work so that I could be sure to read during my lunch break. Well, lo and behold, I get home from work that night and realized that I did not have my book. I left it in the office. What did I do? I just started another book during my wait! I have finished both of those books (they were amazing) and they are the reason for this post. I get to add 3 books to my 2013 reading list.

The Sweetest Kiss- Marie Higgins
The Mistress of Trevelyan- Jennifer St. Giles
The Secret Keeper- Sandra Byrd

I have been on a historical fiction/ historical romance kick and am loving each and every book I pick up. All three of these books are worth reading and I would highly recommend them. Just be warned. They are addictive and it will be hard to put them down!

So, go pick these books up and read them. I will even leave you with a playlist to listen to while you reading.

Pride and prejudice by Lourdes Echagarruga on Grooveshark

Yes. This is the soundtrack from Pride and Prejudice. Perfect for reading time!
