I waver on my thoughts about surprises. The scenario of walking into a dark room, the lights suddenly blazing on, and people screaming, “Happy birthday!!!” is not my idea of fun.
But, on a smaller scale, I’m all for the unexpected:
- Seeing the first buttercups or violets of the year, hidden away in a far corner of the yard
- My older brother sending me a text with a picture of something he spotted in the store that’s part of an old inside joke (this just happened)
- Coming home from doing laundry and my husband has done the dishes (I’m still waiting for this to happen)
And, of course, picking up a book on a whim because I liked the cover and/or title and ending up loving it.
Which brings me (finally) to my theme for February. Last year I used a random number generator to pick four titles from my TBR-list. This year, I’m going with my gut. And with my TBR-shelf, because there had to have been a reason everything there initially caught my attention. Which means, I have no idea yet what I’m reading.
I figure I’ll know it when I see it.
So how about you all – what’s the last book you picked up on a whim and loved?
