It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Each week Kathryn at The Book Date hosts this event to share what you are reading or have read or about to read! Several of you share your latest books on your posts, and I have enjoyed many of your recommendations. Kathryn gives a brief review of her massive reading list, so it is a great read for me every Monday.

I'm not sure if it was Kathryn or someone on another blog who recommended this book, The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley. The description on Amazon drew me in "Fans of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series will devour this hauntingly beautiful tale of love and time travel". Well, yes I am a huge fan of Outlander (the TV series) AND time travel, so yes I had to have it!

My glass of  zin and my iPad!

The main character, Carrie, is an author who is staying near the Slains Castle in Scotland to do research on her latest book. Without revealing too much, let's just say that as she writes, she seems to have an ancestral or genetic memory of her main character, who lives during the first Jacobite uprising. So far I have enjoyed Kearsley's smooth transitions from present day to the past.

Winter Sea is the first book of "The Scottish series", so I am already looking forward to the next one, The Firebird.


  1. I took your recommendation for the book and it is now on my kindle - I love the Outlander series

  2. Sounds intriguing! Love the second photo, very peaceful and picture perfect.


  3. This is a good source for books to read! Hugs

    1. Yes it is, and now my reading list is getting out of hand. ;)

  4. This is an older post of yours, but somehow I missed it! That sounds like a good book - I'm going to put it on my list. Love your photo of the book and glass of wine - an "ahhh!" moment!
