Sunday Salon-July 25, 2010

Happy Sunday Salon Everyone!!

It's another hot day for the greyhounds in Connecticut. Wow! This has really been a hot and humid summer hear. I don't know about the rest of you, but fans and air conditioning are working overtime. While I love the comfort of air conditioning, I also love the freshness of having the windows open with what little breeze the fans can muster. So, as I read today, I have opted for the fresh air. I'll probably head to my family room, which is always cooler and the fur-babies love to sprawl on the carpet. It looks like wall to wall greyhound.

I just finished reading The Eternal Ones, by Kirsten Miller. This is a fabulous suspense YA novel about love at first sight, reincarnation, and deja vu. The underlying theme is about faith, love and trust. The publisher claims: "You will not be able to put it down." I can truthfully say, that is true. You can check out my thoughts here.

I'm in the middle of reading The Gift of Rain by Tan Twan Eng which as I discovered has a setting in Penang. For those of you who know Alice, from her blog, Hello, My Name is Alice, this is where she just moved. I found that so ironic when I started reading it. This is a historical fiction from 1939 as World War II began. Look for my review this week. The author has a beautiful writing style that sends me off into space sometimes.

Anyway, today will be a quiet, relaxing day reading mostly. It's starting to really cook outside, so I might opt for the air conditioning. What are you doing or reading today? In any case, whatever your plans, I hope your Sunday is a bright and happy one.

You're a better person than I am - I cannot imagine living without air conditioning - ours has been running for months.

It isn't always easy, but when it is in the 90's and humid I have to give in. I'm not such a good person. LOL

I am a MUST HAVE A/C type of gal! I would be miserable and cranky without it!

Looking forward to your reviews - those two sound interesting!

Have a great week!

HERE is my Sunday post.

I have not seen The Gift of Rain before. It sounds like a perfect book for me. I love reading fiction set in that time period, and have really been interested in the Asian cultures. Thanks for posting about it. I look forward to your review.

It's been hot here too but that's just the normal summer for us! One of these days I think I want to move to a cold country :)

Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend and I need to read your review of the Eternal Ones!

I hope it has cooled down a bit for you. It's been nice here... hovering around 87 or so. Very mild for So Cal.
