Why this blog?

I wanted to start a blog to combine 3 of my favorite things, reading, wine and dogs. So I figured, why not personalize my little corner of the internet to combine the 3 and discuss books I’ve read, heard about and want to read while sipping a Cabernet and snuggling with my furry pack? I have always loved reading. I love how it transports me into different worlds, different eras and different families. I love finding myself vested in characters, no matter how that reveals itself; love, hate, frustration, confusion, disgust, sorrow, admiration, distain, jealousy, or amazement. I love a book that makes me stop and think, that makes me reflect, that makes me question and that makes me visualize. My least favorite books to read are ones where I realize that I feel indifferent towards the characters, and therefore, don’t really care what happens to them. I’d love for you to join me, to add to the discussions and to share books you’ve read and loved, hated, or even worse: felt indifferent about. What makes you love a book? What makes you dislike one? Let’s discuss!

  1. I have a similar reading taste. I like books that have characters who have something to themselves, not just empty vessels so that the reader can be in their shoes and experience the world.
    By the way, welcome to the blogging world! ♡


    1. Thank you! I look forward to hearing some of your thoughts on books I review or you read. My next review will be on Anxious People which I saw on your blog. Talk about characters we can feel vested in. I loved that book! I am so appreciative of your encouragement- I have so much to learn and am ready!


      1. Ohhh, I love your spirit! Thank you for visiting my blog☺. I read Anxious People last year and absolutely adored it. The people and their portrayal spoke to my heart🥺❤. Looking forward to you reviewing this book, so that we can chat more about these beauties!!
