It's that time to plan the coming year, and I, as always, have a full roster.
But even with marriage, Jocie (my stepdaughter), Hoppy, friends, family, school events, work at several different jobs, volunteer work at the Queensville Historic Manor, the Tea with the Queen annual May event, Dickens Days in December, and everything else life throws at me, I always try to make some time to read.
It's my happy place, that safe harbor that allows me to de-stress from all of the above, and take some time for myself. I have a few favorite places to read: in winter, it has become in front of the fire at the log cabin home I share with Jakob and Jocie. At the Queensville house in winter it's in my childhood bedroom. Jocie, Jakob and I still spend some weekends there, most often when my sister Becca and her hubby Kevin are not in residence.
In summer it is outside! I have several favorite summer spots: in the shade of the grove out on Heartbreak Island, behind the family summer home, Rose Tree Cottage; in an Adirondack chair in the green and lovely backyard of the Queensville house; up in the treehouse out at the log cabin! (It's a great hideaway... no one except Jocie thinks to look for me there, so I can hide with a pot of tea, a plate of treats and a good book!)
Of course my favorite books are by my author friend, Melody Heath; I enjoy her Regency romances and even her contemporary romances! But I also enjoy many other romance authors: Nora Roberts, Mary Balogh, Mary Jo Putney and more. I already have books ordered for my 2020 reading list; how about you? And... do you have a favorite reading place?
