Thanks for stopping by for this week’s Style Scouting. My Sunday post where I share the random stuff that captured my attention or inspired me that I found online.
This last week of January in SC it was cold outside, so I decided to go with it by staying inside to enjoy the coziness of winter, except for getting out to walk each day. By the time I got home after walking, I just wanted to get comfy cozy with a good book.
I have been getting a lot of book recommendations since I had my hip replaced back in the fall. I have been enjoying getting them all read over the last 3 months, but the list keeps growing. :-) To make this happen, it has been my goal to stop my work day at 5:00 every day so I have time to enjoy the pleasures of reading a good book every night.
I am a big fan of historical fiction set in the time frame of World War 2, especially how the people from each of the European countries got through the war in different ways. A strong women in England, France or Poland is usually the main character in the books, but the book I recently read, Beneath Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan has a teenage boy from Italy as the main character. I really enjoyed it.
Right now I am reading Deja Dead by Susan Kiernan-Lewis. It was a $1.99 book in my Prime reading account. It is the first in the Claire Baskerville Mystery series. It is set in Paris where the main character is a 60 something woman from Atlanta, Georgia. I stayed up late last night reading it and am now looking forward to reading the other 10 books in the series.
What have you been reading this month? Anything really enjoyable or thought provoking?
