Me, Myself and My Time

Hi everybody, Good Morning, How r u all today ? It's been long time since my last blog post, but anyways m back, u may continue ..lol..:)

     This morning when I woke up, my husband said, " Today u take a day off from everything, from cooking, cleaning, kids drop-off, pick-up and take the car keys n live the day u want to live, spend it the way u want. This is ur post-birthday gift." This is my birthday week, I was soooo happy. I do spend most of my days, almost all the days the way I want, but this one was special. So I decided to spend my whole day in the LIBRARY, where I always wanted to spend time alone, all by myself. I always come with my kids here, for them. But today I want to breathe in this world alone. This is the only place from where I can't figure my way out. Being the weekday n early morning, the library is all quite. Just couple of staff members here and there. Perfect day and place to spend a day with laptop, books and blog. Lets see what comes up.

     "The Taker" by Alma Katsu (A Novel), I just finished reading yesterday is a great book. Alma Katsu takes the reader by surprise in the first chapter of her mesmerizing debut and stops delivering. What a wonderful book! A dark, Gothic epic worth savoring. A sweeping story that transcends time as it moves effortlessly from the tempestuous past to the frightening present. Enchanting and enthralling! No question- I was TAKEN. It is devastatingly so, like reading The Scarlet Letter while riding a roller coaster, on acid. Seductive, daring, soaring, and ultimately gut-wrenching, The Taker is a lush, historical rendering of transcendent love, paranormal beings, and the depth of pain that can be felt by immortal hearts. It's an astonishing good read.
     The other in my bookshelf  for today's read is "Where I belong" by Gillian Cross and "Undercurrent" By Tricia Rayburn. So will start reading this n will get back to u with the review on these. You have a great day ahead. And Happy Reading.
     And in the same breath I would to thank my husband for the beautiful gift. :)
