Tea and a Read #4

by - 9:37 AM

Hey guys! Tea and a Read is a monthly link-up created by the fabulous Kathryn wherein you share a book you've been reading and tea you've been drinking that month. Without further ado, I hope you enjoy!

The tea I've been drinking lately is this blend called Willow Stream Spa. I've never had anything like it before - it's a black tea, but with a really rich fruity undertone. I didn't think I'd like a black/fruit tea mixture, but this one is really good.

I've been reading Inspector of the Dead by David Morrell. I'd never heard of this author before, and I was gifted this book (his most recent) at a writing workshop. I confess, it's something that's not usually my thing - a Victorian murder mystery - but I'm actually really enjoying it so far. EMILY AND SEAN I SHIP IT SO MUCH AGH.


Let's chat! What books have you been reading lately? Any favorite teas? And are you participating in Tea and a Read? (If not, you should be.) Comment below, and remember that you are all very beautiful pickles. <3

    As usual, I've been drinking Orange Pekoe....because that's who I am.
    I also just finished Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare......my poor heart is forever broken. But I'm currently reading WoT #11(Knife of Dreams) AND IT'S GIVING ME ANXIETY.

    1. YOU POOR BABE. *feel-better tea*
      DON'T SPOIL ANYTHING! I just finished #9. I have a few books I want to read before I continue the series (I JUST GOT NATHANIEL PHILBRICK'S LATEST BOOK IN THE MAIL AND I AM EXPLODING OF HAPPY), but I'm quite looking forward to it!
