Great Tea Time Mysteries For Cold Winter Days

It’s tea time at the Get Cozy Book Nook! Temperatures are frigid across Southern Indiana (where I live) and much of the U.S., so it’s a great time to snuggle in with a hot beverage and a good book. Tea shop mysteries are super popular. And, they’re great for (of course) tea lovers, but theyContinue reading “Great Tea Time Mysteries For Cold Winter Days”

Weekend Reading 8.12.21

It sure has been hot here in Southern Indiana (I live right across the border from Louisville), with temps in the 90s and humidity so thick it feels like you have to swim through the air. But the peaches are ripe, so it’s a good time to stay inside and eat peach cobbler and iceContinue reading “Weekend Reading 8.12.21”

Recent Reads 12.1.2020 – August/September

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a reading round up so this is Part One – August/September. So hearken back with me to late summer/early fall, when the the sun was still blazing before the breeze picked up too much.

July Release Spotlight Two: Utopia Avenue

The summer reading season is in full swing, and my TBR seems to keep getting longer and longer. I’m not a fast reader naturally, but if something grabs my attention, I’m squirreling myself away to get any spare moment of reading time I can find. Our dog likes to sunbathe, but it’s actually been inContinue reading “July Release Spotlight Two: Utopia Avenue”

July Reading Challenge: Six Books of Summer

It doesn’t get really hot in the mountains of Colorado, where I live, but the sun does start to beat down during July. It’s the time of year that I divide between the necessary (work, cleaning, writing) and reading (the focus of my life whenever I can steal a moment). My husband is refurbishing ourContinue reading “July Reading Challenge: Six Books of Summer”

Reading Roundup 6.16.20

I’ve been trying to diversify my reading list, both racially and genre-wise and I think this set of reads is a good start. This was a pretty good month for books, and each one was a hit in its own way. Becoming Mrs. Lewis by Patti Callahan This was a fascinating tale of the loveContinue reading “Reading Roundup 6.16.20”
