Join us in reading Seven Letters From Paris by Samantha Verant for our March read. Link up below to share your post with us!

1. What are you reading right now? Tell us about it.
2. Have you ever read a book that made you want to immediately travel to that destination?
3. What is your ideal reading spot? (Ex. Reading nook in a library, in bed, in a hammock on the beach, etc)

4. If you wrote a memoir, what would the title be?
5. One of our great literary giants has recently passed, author of To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee. Did you read the book? Thoughts/opinions. What about Go Set a Watchman? (Surprisingly enough, our February Book Club read was all about Truman Capote (The Swans of Fifth Avenue) who was childhood best friends with Harper Lee!)

Your co-hosts: Taylor from Pink Heels Pink Truck and Christine from Life With A Side Of Coffee

1. What are you reading right now? Tell us about it.
I'm currently reading Nanavut by Roger Herst. This is what Goodreads says: Under the vast frozen tundra of the northern territories of Canada lie untapped natural resources. There is a fight brewing for control of these profitable resources between the native population and outside interest. In the middle is a revered veterinarian who becomes the unlikely leader of her people after her father’s murder. Can she preserve the soul of her ancestral home and solve her father’s murder?

2. Have you ever read a book that made you want to immediately travel to that destination?
Yes, plenty. Beautiful Ruins made me want to travel to Italy. Paris Letters made me want to go back to Paris. Breakfast at Tiffany's made me dream of New York. All of Nicholas Sparks' books make me want to book a one-way flight to the southern east coast.

3. What is your ideal reading spot? (Ex. Reading nook in a library, in bed, in a hammock on the beach, etc)
I love to read in coffee shops but I also love to read in bed. It's become a ritual of sorts to me lately.

4. If you wrote a memoir, what would the title be?
Life Might Be Crazy But I Swear I'm Not

5. One of our great literary giants has recently passed, author of To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee. Did you read the book? Thoughts/opinions. What about Go Set a Watchman? (Surprisingly enough, our February Book Club read was all about Truman Capote (The Swans of Fifth Avenue) who was childhood best friends with Harper Lee!)
As sad as I am to hear about Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird was not a favorite of mine. I didn't enjoy it like most people did and it was one of the very few I didn't like in school. I feel like if I read it now I'd have a better appreciation for the writing though. I never read Go Set A Watchman but it's on my list!
