books that make me happy...

it's Saturday and what do I want to do? Pick up a great book and grab my iced coffee, compliments of Starbucks and get to reading! (actually, not really - I would prefer to sleep my day away, only turning to grab a long glass of iced tea when I feel thirsty, but let's be honest, I have been conditioned to feel like there is so much to do, and so little time to do it), so back to reading/blogging/working/cleaning etc. I go! Today, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite "happy books" - books that make me smile and fantasize about shopping, living glamorously and high tea! maybe when I am done reading my current read, I will do a review of all these books!

  6. First of all, I have to say I am thrilled that you stopped by my blog because it helped me to find your blog. Loving it! The images along the beach - oh, so aching to see some salty water right about now and the books you included on this list, while I have only read a few, I am thrilled that you shared because with it being summer, I'm always looking for a few light reads. Thank you and again for stopping by. I will be back!
