Word by Word

Creating myself one word at a time.

booksNo matter how busy I get, I always try to find time to read. It’s funny, though, the kind of books I need to read at different times of my life or the time of year. When life gets really busy, I want to escape. Easy reads with engaging characters, fun settings and clear plots. That’s what I’ve been craving lately. You’ll see this trend reflected in the reads from the last week. I’d love to hear if you’ve found the same trend in your reading life? Do life situations impact the books you crave?

Here’s what I’ve been up to this week.

  1. Oooo I’ve not heard of Last Train to Istanbul… I’m going to have to go check it out on Goodreads to see what its all about. Are you enjoying it? Or have you finished it?

    1. Haven’t finished it yet. Audio books take me some time when I don’t have any car travel planned. It’s interesting. I’m curious to continue to see WWII from the Turkish perspective. It isn’t one I’ve given much thought to before!
