simple days

I have a confession,
sometimes I am really happy when it rains.
{Even though my pup, Hardy, is not}

When I say sometimes, I really mean sometimes.
Like a lot of people, I love the sun and warmth 
and love spending my time outside.

However, every now and then, I LOVE 
when it RAINS.

It gives me a chance to settle down.
Not run around.
And a great excuse to just stay inside and relax.

What do I do when it is a rainy day?
Completely unique things, of course, like reading and watching TV

On this rainy day, I want to talk about a couple books I have read lately and like:

Killing Floor (Jack Reacher, #1)
This is the first book in the series of Jack Reacher (ya know, that Tom Cruise movie that came out not too long ago). This book is not the same book as the movie is based on and I hear the movie wasn't very good, but I really enjoyed this book!
I had trouble with the beginning because of the style in which Lee Child writes, but it definitely turned into a gripping novel!
There were some awesome twists and turns
which I didn't see coming and
I always see them coming.
If you're looking for a light, easy to read and thrilling book then check this one out!

That Old Cape Magic: A Novel

This was another light, easy read. Perfect for by the pool or the beach!
The book had great characters and hilarious moments.

What do you do on rainy days?
