My grandparents' house is my home away from home. My grandma and I say that my parents' house is my first home; my grandparents' house is my second home; and college is my third home. =) I spend a lot of time at my grandparents' place--in fact, I just spent the night at their house last night! It has been more than wonderful to live so close to them, and their property is lovely.
The picture above is an area in their front/side yard. There used to be a really tall tree there that created a canopy, but they had it cut down and moved the fountain from the back yard to the front. The picnic table is nice there, and doesn't the lamp post add a nice touch? =) This picture was actually taken last year, I think, and I was reading Shadow of Colossus by T.L. Higley.
Higley's books are great! I actually won City of the Dead, the second book in her Seven Wonders series, over a year or two ago, and I loved it! I ended up getting the first book in the series (Shadow of Colossus) and then getting an ARC of Guardian of the Flame (the third book) while I was away at college. I cannot wait until her next book Petra: City in Stone comes out this fall! Higley really transports her readers into exotic locales of the past, and the mysteries and action in her books are fantastic!
Anyway, going back to my grandparents' house, I have a lot of great memories there, and I don't know how many books I've brought over there to read! Do you have a special place where you've read a lot of books? And do you want to share about any books you're really looking forward to reading this fall? (I've learned my lesson from Kav--I won't ask for you to pick just one! You can tell us about any number of books you can't wait to read!)
Once again, happy reading!
