This Is Me...
Blech. I woke up this morning with a hell of a headache. Thought it was caffeine withdrawl, and it ended up being the beginning of a sinus headache. Now my throat hurts, I'm coughing, and I'm starting with the shakes. Boooo!!!
So, hubby is taking over dinner for me...chicken strips and fries--his speciality! And I'm heading for the couch with my special blankie, a steaming hot toddy (hubby makes the best toddies!) and a good book.
When I'm sick, I don't like to start a new book, instead, I reach for a comfort read. Tonight, I feel like some Lisa Kleypas. I know it'll depress me because when I grow up, I want to write as good as she does! :)
So, I went upstairs to my study to the keeper shelf and placed my fingers on the spines of my Lisa K books and closed my eyes, letting my fingers do the choosing. Index finger landed on Tempt Me At Midnight! Oh, goodie. I love me some Harry and Poppy. I really adore Harry's character in this novel, as well, I love all the Hathaway's. I'm so eager for Leo's book. I know it's going to be nice and emotional. And Beatrix's should be really sweet. I wonder who her hero will be. Anyone know?
Well...I'm off to snuggle up and feel better.
So, who or what is your comfort read?
