{Book & A Cuppa #5} Wednesday’s Book & Tea

It’s Wednesday! Another day to share with you what I’m reading and what’s in my teacup! 


So the other night I decided to start a new book when I went to bed. I was reading four books and had finished two that day, so it made TOTAL sense to start a new one, right?

Yeah, I don’t have a clue how far I made it into the book AND I can’t even remember what the book was. I was reading it on one of my book apps on my iPad and closed it when I got up. Needless to say, I don’t think it was the right time to read that book.

Last night I decided I should start a new book (again) and decided to go with an old stand-by series I’ve been working my way through. It goes well with my new mug AND my old stand-by tea that’s in it.

In my cup today is one of my favourite teas, Earl Grey de la Creme:

Earl Grey de la Creme

I’m sure we all have those amazing teas where when we just can’t make up our mind on what kind to have, this is the one we go for. Why? Because it’s always amazing and it just warms us up.

Earl Grey de la Creme is one of those teas I could drink ALL day. I love the taste, the smell, the look of it … whether I have it black, or with a splash of milk and sugar, it’s always perfect. Whenever I do tea parties, I always highlight this tea because it’s just so amazing. Everyone usually falls in love with the smell and if I’m doing a tasting of it, I can guarantee a few bags will be bought.

Today’s book, like I said, goes perfect with my tea, since they’re both favourites. I’ve loved this series since I started reading it and every now and then I can’t decide what to read, so I’ll grab the next book in the series and fall in love all over again.

destined for an early grave

This is the fourth book in the series, and I totally recommend starting at the beginning if you want to read it, but here’s the synopsis:

Her deadly dreams leave her in grave danger.

Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they’ve fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it’s time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She’s having visions of a vampire named Gregor who’s more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn’t know about.

Gregor believes Cat is his and he won’t stop until he has her. As the battle begins between the vamp who haunts her nightmares and the one who holds her heart, only Cat can break Gregor’s hold over her. She’ll need all the power she can summon in order to bring down the baddest bloodsucker she’s ever faced . . . even if getting that power will result in an early grave.

Last week’s book was a Christian romance and this one is FAR from that. Does anyone read vampire books anymore? It felt so strange diving back into a world like this! And I haven’t read a sexy book in SO LONG. Really, my new mug fit so well with the book! 

I love Cat and Bones and I know whenever I go to read a new book in this series, I always hesitate because I think I won’t be able to get into it again, but I’m already about 50 pages in and it’s freaking awesome. I have the next book in the series, but might have to pick up the next one after that … you can never be too prepared.

  1. I love this meme! I mean, I love tea, I love books, what’s not to like? Today I’m feeling under the weather so I’m having some rooibos tea (caffeine-free so I can nap but still warming and comforting). I tried reading some more of Neuromancer by William Gibson but my brain couldn’t cope with the complicated plot so I cleansed with some gymnastics on the TV then read some Transmetropolitan by Warren Ellis.

    • Tea and books for the win!

      Rooibos is a great tea! I love making it at night because it’s naturally sweet and naturally caffeine free, so it feels like a treat, plus, like you said, it’s just warming and comforting. I find that unless I drink copious amounts of caffeine, I can still sleep, but I still like to play it safe in the evenings.

      And yeah, when I’m sick, I need fun books. I don’t want to have to think!

  3. I still read books about vampires! Not very often, but from time to time. I haven’t read any of this series, but I’ve heard good things. Sounds interesting. And I lovelovelove this meme! I’ve thought of doing something similar with poetry, but maybe I’ll just use yours and link here. I doubt it will be Wednesday or weekly, but I’ll definitely be checking back.
