THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Name a favorite book you’d take to the beach.
I am currently reading two books. I am reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child with my children. We're one-third of the way through the book. I admit to wanting to gobble the book up in a couple of huge greedy bites. However, I am also enjoying the experience of discovering the book (or rather, the screenplay) with my kids. When I started reading the Harry Potter series I didn't have children. Heck, I hadn't even met my husband yet. LOL When the last book was released my youngest child was a baby. So now, to be reading this installment of a series that has meant so much to me with m children (who also LOVE this series) is incredibly meaningful. So, while a part of me does want to inhale the story I'm happy to be savoring it with my kids. It makes the entire experience of reading it richer.
I am also reading Sting by Sandra Brown. It is a romantic suspense that I started yesterday afternoon. It sucked me in from page one and is so good!

  1. I've read one book by Sandra Brown, Friction, and I really liked. So, I hope you enjoy Sting. I haven't read it yet, but I've heard a lot of good things about it. :-)

    1. Lauren, Uh oh, there's crazy? I'm already a little sad at the strife. I still can't wait to get back to it tonight, though.

  3. I haven't been able to get to my copy of the new HP book because my daughter stole it. Did you hear they are coming out with some HP short story books this fall? I think they will all be ebooks.

    Hope you have a great week.

    1. I did hear that news about the short stories, Cheryl. I'm excited to read those, too. That's funny about your daughter. If I wasn't reading the screenplay to my kids they'd probably have taken off with it, too. :)
