5 Summer Books or Movies

I would not wish to be in a hot cinema house in this weather or with Covid still so abundant, and don’t read as much as I used to, but a relaxing Summer read IMO is anything by Erica James or Cathy Kelly.  If you want a thriller then David Baldacci can fit the bill, and for action in spades, try anything in the Scarecrow series by Matthew Reilly.

In 1977, I did read five paperbacks whilst on holiday:

The Killing Gift
Jaws
Swarm
Incubus and
Suffer the Children

They were all horror stories and I enjoyed them immensely. Sadly my husband was not that impressed as we were on our honeymoon.
We separated in 1980 and divorced in 1981.

Thought you’d like to see this again, so clever.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry, that you were reading horror stories on your honeymoon. I love a good horror tale, or compelling mystery. I doubt that it’s in print anymore, but if you can find it, Thomas Tryon’s “The Other” is fabulous–as is the film, which I think is still available on DVD. He also wrote “Harvest Home”, another good scary tale…though it may also be out of print.

    • The marriage was doomed before we hit the altar to be honest. When we went away shortly after becoming engaged the year before, I got the bug for jigsaw puzzles.

        Sounds like my marriage–I ignored all the warning signs, flashing lights. Wish I’d had the courage to be a “runaway bride”! I love jigsaw puzzles, they’re great therapy/distraction!

    The Horror genre is not my cup of tea… I much prefer a little fantasy or some good old Science Fiction!
