Something a little different today! When I’m not dreaming about, talking about or actually traveling, I love reading. Or at least I used to.

I’ve been noticing a lot of things I used to love haven’t been interesting me anymore. I guess that’s what happens when you work full time, run three separate home based businesses, plan trips and are planning a wedding.

I really really really want to get into reading again though and have started feeling interested in it. I even made it one of my New Years Resolutions! So I signed up for the website NetGalley where they post upcoming books for bloggers (or other influential people) to read and review! So I will be book blogging a little bit (hopefully…if the bug ever comes back) in amongst my usual travel posts!

Thanks for reading and happy Wednesday!


Paris Letters by Janice MacLeod

Paris Letters

Have you heard of the wonderful blog World of Wanderlust? If not, you totally should check it out! Anyway, they are holding a book club over there where you read a book during each month and discuss after. That’s 12 months and 12 books! Not a hard feat for those looking to read more this year!

For the month of January we will be reading Paris Letters by Janice McLeod. I’m going to be starting it this weekend and will post a review when I finish. I hope you pick it up as well! Read the synopsis below:

“How much money does it take to quit your job?

Exhausted and on the verge of burnout, Janice poses this questions to herself as she doodles on a notepad at her desk. Surprisingly, the answer isn’t as daunting as she expected. With a little math and a lot of determination, Janice cuts back, saves up, and buys herself two years of freedom in Europe.

A few days into her stop in Paris, Janice meets Christophe, the cute butcher down the street-who doesn’t speak English. Through a combination of sign language and franglais, they embark on a whirlwind Paris romance. She soon realizes that she can never return to the world of twelve-hour workdays and greasy corporate lingo. But her dwindling savings force her to find a way to fund her dreams again. So Janice turns to her three loves-words, art, and Christophe-to figure out a way to make her happily-ever-after in Paris last forever”.
