Good morning! When I woke up this morning, I had an epiphany! Since I am only three books away from my Goodreads goal of 200 reads…and since none of my review books are overdue or due for awhile…and since I already finished both library books….Well, what? Yes, that was a meandering sentence. But I realized that I could read anything I wanted to read. Yes!
First, though, I posted my review of the library book Invisible, by Carla Buckley (click on over to see!).
Then I did my usual “after review” things, like linking the review on the “read” page at my Curl up and Read blog...and setting up the Currently Reading books on Goodreads. Yes, I’m a bit compulsive.
What will I be reading? I woke up thinking about houseboats…and Seattle. So naturally, I picked Morning Glory, by Sarah Jio.
New York Times bestselling author Sarah Jio imagines life on Boat Street, a floating community on Seattle’s Lake Union—home to people of artistic spirit who for decades protect the dark secret of one startling night in 1959
Fleeing an East Coast life marred by tragedy, Ada Santorini takes up residence on houseboat number seven on Boat Street. She discovers a trunk left behind by Penny Wentworth, a young newlywed who lived on the boat half a century earlier. Ada longs to know her predecessor’s fate, but little suspects that Penny’s mysterious past and her own clouded future are destined to converge.
Doesn’t it sound delicious? And now, as I sip my coffee, I imagine my day unfolding in lovely ways. Totally savoring my read. Next week will be soon enough to get back to the review books and the deadlines. And…I am totally finished with blog tours. Yippee!
Do you ever feel the need to forget your lists and your “must reads”? Do you feel like you are free? If not at Christmas time, when?
