A Book Accomplished!

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Hi friends, I'm happy to say that I accomplished reading a book this summer.  I started reading back in the beginning of July the book The Paris Wife by Paula McLain.  Let me explain why it's been so long since I have read a book.  I love reading books but I don't seem to have much time to read anymore due to family, crocheting, knitting and blogging and watching TV!  I promised myself for the summer that I would read one book and finish it.  It felt really good to be reading again and I didn't want the book to end because I was enjoying it so much.  Lol!   






If you have not read the book yet I highly recommend it.  To quickly sum up the book, it's about Ernest Hemingway and his wife Hadley Richardson and their life in Paris in the 1920's.  To read more about the book click HERE.

I just started reading the book AND THEN THERE WERE NONE by Agatha Christie.  I love mystery books and this looks like it will be a good book.  This book was recommended to me to read by my daughter who had to read this book for school.  To read more about the book click HERE.


I am on a roll right now with reading and I do hope it won't take me a long to finish reading the book.  I will let you know what I thought of it when I'm done reading it.  

What book are you reading right now?

  1. Hi Julie, kudos for finishing your book, which sounds quite intriguing! I know how reading can be put on the back burner when our daily routine, our hobbies, and, ahem, blogging, become a priority! I think I'd enjoy this book on Ernest Hemingway and his wife. I studied his novels in university and I admire his writing.

    Have a great day and happy reading...books, that is!

  2. Loved The Paris Wife and was lucky enough to go to the Hemingway House in Key West shortly after reading it!

  3. Our book club read The Paris Wife a few months ago and I loved it, too!

  4. Oooo, the Hemmingway book sounds interesting! I've read a lot of Agatha Christie and have seen a lot of the PBS movies with Joan Hickson as Miss Marple. Classics. :-)

  5. That book sounds interesting. I start a lot of books at once and then finish them all up at once.

  7. I am reading Tuesday's Child by dale Mayer, I usually read for 20 minutes or so before I go to sleep. I am only just starting this book so I'll let you know how it goes.
    I love to read, to immerse myself in a good book, I often read a whole book if I am on holiday somewhere.

  8. Good for you, Julie! I have had a hard time squeezing reading in lately as well, but when I do get to crack open a book, I am always happy! That's funny that you are reading your daughter's book from school. That happens to us all the time! I have recently read Dracula and reread Of Mice and Men, because of the kids' assignments! I guess inspiration can come from anywhere! I love a good mystery, may have to give Agatha Christie a try!

  9. I don't seem to read as much as I use to.
    Probably blogging too much now!
    Thanks for your recommendations, Julie

  10. I don't read nearly as much as I used to. I still love it and try to read a few books each year. I need to put the computer down more often and pick up a book instead. The Paris Wife sounds like a great book. Have a lovely week....Vicky

  11. I used to read constantly, but now, with blogging, I don't seem to have as much time. I did read a book over the summer (in the past, I would have read 10!).

  12. I love to curl up with a good book too, Julie! Glad you got some reading time in. :)

  13. Congrats on completing your summer book! I also don't seem to read as much any more . . . need to make more time to fit it in, and less time on twitter, pinterest, instagram, game apps on my phone . . . etc.

    Starting to read *Wild* by Cheryl Strayed and figure I had better finish it before the movie comes out!

    Happy Wednesday! ✿

  15. I'll put these on my reading list. I just finished My Name is Resolute....not an easy book to read but an amazing historical novel. I will wait a few days before I start another one. I'm glad you're going to do the make up Mondays again! Hugs!

  16. I have the same problem Julie! Finding time. I saw this book. I'll have to get it. Thanks.

  17. I have committed to reading one book a month. Starting a book club was a great way to keep the commitment. :) I love reading too. Haven't read The Paris Wife. Sounds good though.

  18. I am a voracious reader and couldn't imagine not reading books. It's my addiction an an obsession. I joke that it's a kind of curse. Haven't read The Paris Wife. On the other hand I have literally read everything by Agatha Christie. She's among my most favourite writers. I am sure you will like it.

  19. Hi Julie! Thanks for the book review. I love to read and enjoy reading every night before I go to bed - even if it is only a few pages - I think it helps me sleep better. I just finished Mistress by James Patterson today while out by our pool enjoy some swimming, sun and reading. I am going to add the Paris Wife to my list of books to read. Maybe they will have it at the library - I go there about once a week. Enjoy your Labor Day!

  24. Good for you Julie! I don't read like I use to either for a lot of the same reasons. Funny thing is that I usually read more when on vacation. Especially while on an airplane. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
