92. The Beach Club

I feel like all I've been doing lately is posting about the books I've read. least I'm posting about something.

Soon I should have some new cake ball pictures. I have been asked to make some for a birthday party coming up soon and I want to get some new pictures for some advertisements.

I've really been enjoying visiting the library lately. I have (somewhat) expanded the books I'm interested in, so that's always a good thing.

This book was a pure impulse while I was at the library. I knew I wanted to take out another book, but couldn't find one. I saw the cover of this book and was just looked good. This was a good case of judging a book by its cover. I really enjoyed this story.

I'm not sure if it's because I worked at a summer resort for a few years, or because we're on the cusp of summer, but this was a fun read. The characters were interesting and "real" enough and when I closed the book I found myself wondering what would happen in their lives.

My husband makes fun of me because I get SO involved in my books. The characters become so real to me, especially in a well written novel. There are times when he'll come into a room and I'll be sobbing or smiling based on what I'm reading. Please tell me I'm not alone - he thinks I'm crazy!

I am exactly the same way when I read good books. It's like I am living the lives of the characters. I get so sad when I finish a great book. Then I wonder what happens next.

You are not alone. I have A) Judged a book by it's cover and B)gotten attached to the characters in books. I am often sad when I finish a book too.
