~Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here. I would love for you to join me each month and share what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too! Post your photo(s) on your blog or on Instagram (#yarnalong) and then share a link below to either your blog or Instagram post!~ (This post contains affiliate links.)
I finished reading The Grand Sophy last week, and while the ending was a little ridiculous, I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be reading more Georgette Heyer in the future. When I told a friend that what I was reading was described as a “regency romance,” she laughed and asked if it was a “bodice ripper.” Not at all! It was funny and delightful (definitely more of a comedy than a romance) and all the bodices remained intact.
I’m supposed to be reading Empire Falls now for book club, but keep picking up The Seven Storey Mountain instead (certainly more appropriate for Lent!) I’ve been wanting to read this book ever since reading Merton’s Bread in the Wilderness, and my sister recently sent me a copy so I couldn’t help starting it. Have you read it?
I’m slowly knitting on my shawl. Mabel has claimed it, but I suspect she would claim anything I knit.
