Rainy Days + Traveling Books

book bagb7w

I just love summer rainy days and nights.  My favorite things to do when there is a downpour outside is to light my candles, read a good book, listen to music or watch black and white movies.  Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong era because I love the classics and most things vintage.  Plus, I am absolutely fascinated by the Roaring 20’s.  –The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald is one of my all time favorite novels, it’s hard not to love Fitzgerald, and I admit I read it again before watching the movie this summer-.

Traveling Books

Yesterday, I came across two novels I am excited to read, at the Cayman Islands Humane Society Book Loft.  Bonus, I also found this lovely eco friendly bag which is made from repurposed newspaper!!  Remember, if you have books that you no longer read donate them to the Book Loft the proceeds will help benefit the animals.  If you haven’t been there then I recommend that you check it out, a small book loft filled with a wide range of novels.


Today, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite novels to read that are perfect for a rainy day.  Some of the books I have read and others are on my summer reading list.  Summer tends to be when I do my best reading.


The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald.  I am currently reading this novel and love it! I just can’t help it I am so enthralled by the 1920’s.


The Crack-Up by F. Scott Fitzgerald. – I am on a bit of a Fitzgerald kick.  This book is a collection of autobiographical pieces, which will most likely make this an interesting read.  It is a collection of essays by Fitzgerald and letters from his famous friends like Gertrude Stein and T.S. Eliot -A fantastic poet!-. This one is on my to read list.


Dancing Girls by Margaret Atwood.  I can wait to dive into this book, which is a collection of some of her short stories.
