Today I am linking up with Michelle @ Grammie Time to talk about two fun topics…
books and wine!
I would love to be that kind of person that reads one or more books a week but, let’s be honest, I have no time for that!!! I have ADD when it comes to reading – I start reading one book and then switch to another book then come back to the original one – – haha!! However, the past few weeks I have devoted any free time I have to reading two books by Jojo Moyes.
Currently I am reading “After You”. I am halfway through the book and love it so far. I go to the gym about three to four times a week so I read for 45 minutes while I am working out on the elliptical and I can’t wait to see how it ends.
I finished “Me Before You” last week and I LOVED IT!!! I still have not seen the movie but hope to see it soon.
Two other books on my kindle (besides all of my kid’s games and digital books) are “For the Love” and “The Zookeeper’s Wife”. These are two completely different books but I am halfway through both of them and when I have nothing else to read I come back to them and read a couple of chapters.
I love Jen Hatmaker’s books and this book makes me cry and laugh. It is definitely a must read for every woman!
I like historical event books and this non-fiction book is all about a zookeeper’s family in Poland during World War II. It is a really good book but in some places it is really slow, hence the reason why I can only read so much of it at one time before I move on to another book.
Moving on to Wines!!
I was thinking about when I started to drink wine and I guess it was while I was in college. I started with the sweetest wine I could find – White Zinfandel. I can’t even remember the last time I had a glass of White Zinfandel – it is way too sweet for me now!! I will occasionally have a glass of a Riesling or Moscato wine but I am definitely a red wine girl. When we finally get a chance to relax and watch TV I would rather have a glass of a Cabernet Sauvignon than a bowl of ice cream. Here are are couple of my favorites red wines…
I love our local winery – Landon Wines – Tempranillo 2014
Another favorite is a good Malbec wine
Alamos Malbec is one if have recently tried.
Ok, now go drink some wine, read some books and I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!
