What I'm Reading Wednesday: Beach Edition

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Look at my stunning new tote bag!
Want one?  Are you jealous?  ;P
Keep reading!

Happy Wednesday, My Lovelies!  It's time for another edition of "What I'm Reading Wednesday" here at The Sketchy Reader.

This is the beach edition because we're at the beach for Fall Break.  YAY!  Plus, Shanley Belle turns 25 tomorrow!

When Shelley was little, she liked playing "Guess What's in My Purse."  Well today we're playing "guess what's in my pretty tote bag!"

Let's take a Look-See, shall we?

I'm reading The Welcome Home Diner!  Come back Monday and read my review.

Inside you'll also find a pretty notebook and pouch for my pencils and other journaling supplies.
Jenna designed these pretties.  You can follow Jenna on her super-cool blog, The Painted Apron HERE,
and these pretties can be found at Jenna's Society 6 Shop HERE.

I'm also charging my iPad, and it will be packed along with the fun stuff above because I'll be reading two books on my Nook app:

Both of these look like fun beach reads:  A superhero detective story, and a cozy mystery which will get me into the Halloween spirit.  :D

Although I'm enjoying my family at the beach, I have a couple of posts scheduled, including my Nancy Drew Literary Friday Post.  I'll also be in touch with y'all because this vacation is all about relaxation, and reading blogs is relaxing!

I hope y'all are having a great week!  

Until next time...

Happy reading!
Ricki Jill
