Book Review: Between England & Iowa A Year In The Life Of An Emigrating Wife by Kylie Neuhaus

For the traveler in all of us, I’m sure at times we’ve all thought about what it would be like to move permanently to a foreign country. Myself, I’ve often dreamed about what it would be like to actually live in Paris. But what happens when you meet someone from a foreign country on a tropical vacation, keep in touch, fall in love, get married, and move to that…

5 Quotes Only Book Nerds Will Appreciate

This cute little book Quotes For Writers was gifted to me from a dear friend.  Inside it is full of quotes for writers broken off into different sections.  I absolutely adore quotes for every aspect of life, but this little gem of a book resonates with me since I love to write and read. Inside there is a section just of quotes about books.  I loved them all, but since…

 Taking On Wisconsin’s Ice Age Trail and What Inspired Me To Do It

Did you know that Wisconsin’s Ice Age Trail is one of 11 National Scenic Trails in the US? I bet not.  Most people, even if you are from Wisconsin really do not know much about the Ice Age Trail segments that they pass along the highway when you are traveling this beautiful state.  If fact, I cannot count how many times I have passed the trail-head on highway A just…

Book Recommendation-Big Magic From Elizabeth Gilbert

I am revisiting this book recommendation I wrote from January 2016 when I about my favorite book from 2015.  It is timely since we are reading it this month in an online book club I am a member of. It is one of the best books I have read, and  in April I will be traveling to southern Illinois to see Elizabeth Gilbert speak for the first time! I am beyond excited to see her…

Why My Book Addiction Will Cause My Sudden Death

I love books I love new books, used books, book recommendations, book clubs, and mostly owning books!  This last fact is the main reason that books could be the death of me. Books stores are an instant magnet to me.  If I walk past one, I HAVE to enter.  Before I know it I have spent hours combing the shelves only to walk out with 5 new books in my bag. Sometimes I think I…

Book Recommendation: Pancakes In Paris by Craig Carlson

  My book recommendation for this month is Breakfast In America by Craig Carlson Not only did this fun read make me incredibly hungry for all breakfast food, it  was a great glimpse into the crazy bureaucracy of starting and running a restaurant in Paris.

What I’m Reading Now

What’s better than sitting in a cafe in Paris with a glass of wine in one hand and a book in the other? Nothing!!  Seriously, you need reading material when you are sitting in airports and sitting on a plane for 7 hours. Other than having a couple of books ready to go on my IPad, I picked up Truly Madly Guilty from Liane Moriarty at Costco last week.  Now who…

The Light Of Paris by Eleanor Brown

The Light Of Paris is a page turner I picked up The Light of Paris by Eleanor Brown mainly because of the Paris subject matter.  Five pages in that I was going to have no problem finishing this one. It took me only 3 days to read The Light of Paris by Eleanor Brown.  The author of the bestseller The Weird Sisters wrote this story that explores the complicated relationship between a Mother and Daughter…

Reading Now-The Light Of Paris

I needed a break from all the things I have been reading lately. I’m about “how to’d” out. Although I’ve been enhancing my blogging, Pinterest, Social Media, and Paris travel skills, it is time for some daily fiction. I need to escape away from reality for awhile and have a little fun.  So yesterday I took a much needed trip to the library to search the…

Readers Block-Trying To Find My Reading Groove Again

I’m having a behavioral issue.  I can’t remember the last time that I was stuck and was having a hard time trying to stick with a book.  The last 2 books I have tried to read,  I just could not finish.  Very strange behavior indeed!  Maybe it has something to do with not feeling very settled myself.  Maybe it’s feeling a measure of guilt for reading purely for pleasure…

Book Review-Meet Me In Paris by Juliette Sobanet

Since I can never get enough of reading about my favorite city either in fiction or non-fiction form, I decided to dig into Juliette Sobanet’s telling memoir Meet Me In Paris.  I have read a few of her books before-including Sleeping With Paris, Honeymoon In Paris, and Kissed In Paris and loved all of them.  Juliette typically writes romance novels most set in the city of light which is why I…

Book Review-I Loved You In Paris by Juliette Sobanet

  A few days ago I finished reading Meet Me In Paris by Juliette Sobanet and was blown away at this candid memoir from this romance writer about her divorce and her all consuming affair with a married man. You can read my review of that book here.  In that book she shared a handful of poems she wrote to describe the feelings and thoughts she had during this painful period of her life. I…
