Where is your favorite place to read during the summer?

Inside where it’s cool. I always think I’m going to sit outside with my new reader sunglasses and read, read, read! Then I get out there, and bugs, heat, and sunburn become an issue fast, lol. In the spring and fall, I do like to sit on my front stoop and read while it’s in the shade. What about you?

What authors have you recently discovered and loved?

Several! I’m going to define this question as meaning authors in the last year (July ’20 – July ’21) that I hadn’t heard of before, or that I’d heard of but hadn’t read. (I know some of them have been around for many years!) Here’s my list:

What are your favorite posts to read?

Hmm, I think it’s a tie for two types of posts β€”

(1) I love “book list” posts, like what you’d see with Top Ten Tuesday. I find so many great books to add to my wish list that way. However, I never participate myself, because I can’t think of enough books to make a decent list!!

For example, this week’s topic is book titles that are questions. I can think of two:
β€’ Who Is Maud Dixon? (Alexandra Andrews)
β€’ Who Killed Ruby? (Camilla Way)
That’s it! That’s my list, lol.

(2) I love book review posts for books I’ve already read. It’s fun being able to nod or shake my head as I read it and think yep, I agree! or no way!

How do you approach writing reviews?

Begrudgingly. Ha, just kidding!

Seriously though, I’ve been in a review writing slump this summer, since I feel like I’m being pulled in all directions in real life. It’s slowly getting better though. So, I try to keep my reviews brief and simple. I don’t do big plot summaries, instead I try to give a vague-ish overview in a few sentences. Then I add in what I liked or didn’t like, avoiding spoilers.

On blog posts, I put a link to the book on Goodreads at the bottom in case readers want more info. I try not to get too far behind with reviews, maybe two books, just because it gets harder to remember details!

Ultimately, through reviewing, I’m trying to get the book out there, put it on readers’ radar, and share my honest opinions.

What’s your favorite form of media (apart from literature, that is)?

Music/radio, for me. We have Apple Music (which is awesome), but these days I just like to listen to CDs or the classic rock station on my boombox. I’ve been feeling nostalgic, you know?

My favorites: Sting, Depeche Mode, Loreena McKennitt, Great Big Sea, MΓ‘ire (Moya) Brennan, Enya, The Doors. Also the Pure Moods CDs! Plus Celtic/New Age & 70s | 80s | 90s music.

Classic rock radio faves: Eagles, Led Zeppelin, The Police, Heart, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd, Boston, Queen & many more. β™₯
