Great Books for Rainy Days

Sunday, April 23, 2017

Is it rainy where you are? Hopefully, not flooding.
So far for three days, it's rained cats and dogs in Nashville. Instead of gardening, I'm celebrating World Book Day by taking a break  to catch up on four heart pounding stories that are edgy, a little dark, and super fun reads. 📚

Four Books

In case you're interested, here's my full-throttle fast read book list with tea suggestions, optimal for wet weather☔:
  • Top is Star Wars THRAWN by Timothy Zahn
  • THE CHOSEN by J.R. Ward (Book 15 of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series)
  • ALL BY MYSELF, ALONE by Mary Higgins Clark 
  • ONE PERFECT LIE by Lisa Scottoline
Tea Suggestions and ones I've tried (photos included):

Rainy Day To-Do List: The Chosen and Hot Chai Tea

  • English Breakfast sets up nicely for Thrawn.
  • Chai Latte is spicy hot and perfect for The Chosen .(Easy recipe: heat cold filtered water to boil. steep tea for three minutes [I like mine dark], then add 2 heaping teaspoons of turbino sugar and milk. Stir. Sooo yum!
Make it hot, rainy day reading and a cuppa
  • Refresh (Full-Leaf ) Mint lovely for All By Myself, Alone
  • Raspberry Passion goes great with One Perfect Lie
So if it's raining where you're at (or not), what are you reading and drinking? Any special concoctions you'd like to share, please do!😄
The Chose is pretty hot!

Barefoot and fancy free! #amreading #writerslife #sunday #bookworm

 FYI: Next week my husband and I are doing a thing involving whiskey and reading. It ought to be interesting!

Look up. It isn't a bird, plane or superman!

Once fiction now turns reality on its ear.
Driverless Taxi! 
Ubber says what?
Whether you're a reader or a writer, the times are 'a changing!'

Drone this, drone that, it's great sci-fi on the horizon of our lives.
Soon we all expect packages to be delivered by drone and I'm ready!
So when Ehang (a drone company out of China) announced a driverless taxi, things are moving quickly toward driverless cars as well.

Tesla better put into high gear with the Ehang 184 Autonomous Aerial Vehicle. This helicopter has a 142 HP and is considered a personal flying vehicle. I don't know about you but going up ten floors and standing on a ledge is sweat-inducing.

That's nothing given the 184 AAV can do heights of 11,000 feet! Little piloting experienced required...okay...
Take away: Does it come with a parachute?
