Dream Reading Nook

Some furnishing images from Arhaus Furniture


Had some fun making a board of cozy elements I'd incorporate if I were to create my dream reading space.

I love soothing grays, soft blues and natural stone colors. I mostly like to sit when I read, and this recliner looks uber comfortable. I can just picture myself in it, book in hand, with my feet curled under me or reclined, feet up. But you know, sometimes a gal likes to lay down and read. This long, wide chaise lounge looks inviting, especially with the window behind it. Great reading light! Lighting is important, so I'd want both an overhead lighting fixture and a table lamp. A plush throw for my legs is a must. Coffee and bon bons are a necessity, too!

#HS Readathon Wrap Up

Time to wrap up another Seasons of Reading readathon, and it's no surprise to me that I didn't manage to get even half way through my TBR. In fact, I deviated from it—a book I'd put on hold at the library came in.

Here's what I did read: Her Best Laid Plans by Cara McKenna and the defection, God-Shaped Hole by Tiffanie DeBartolo.

Her Best Laid Plans was a novella, a quick bit of satisfying romance with a heavy dollop of steam. I hadn't expected the story to be so sexual, though I should've, especially knowing McKenna's previous work—but the prior stuff I've read by this author were longer novels where sexual scenes felt more in balance with other themes in the story. In this case, because the story was so short, I wasn't mentally prepared for the depth of the steam that the story contained. Despite that, Cara McKenna knows her way around storytelling.
