Greece: What I Saw and What I Read

In honor of our 20th wedding anniversary, my husband and I took a second honeymoon in Greece. It was bliss!

First stop: Crete



First book I devoured: Unaccustomed Earth by Jhumpa Lahiri


Second stop: Santorini


Second book I loved: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows


Third stop: Mykonos


Third book that touched my heart and soul: The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein


Fourth stop: Athens


Fourth book I couldn't put down: City of Thieves by David Benioff


I highly recommend all four of these books (as well as a vacation in Greece). If you want to see more of my vacation pix, friend me on Facebook and check out my photos.

Now I'm home, refreshed, and ready to dive into my next writing project. Life is good!

Someone just recommended City of Thieves to me...so glad to know you enjoyed it. I haven't picked up an "adult" book that I loved in so long (been very busy reading middle grade and YA books)... GORGEOUS pics, Brenda!

Roz, you are a sure thing when it comes to book recommendations!

Christine, I think you'll love the pacing of City of Thieves. Great story. But the book you would love even more is The Art of Racing in the Rain. And The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society.
