Read the Blues Away
It’s blue week and the thing that helps me say goodbye to the blues the most is reading (well and the idea of a full time nanny/housekeeper- I can dream right??). It got me through late night nursing sessions, middle of the night insomnia wakings, and the last case of the flu. Currently I participate in three book clubs and if I could spend all day reading, I probably would.
What’s your go to for kicking the blues? My second choice is definitely fashion or antiques or both- see that vintage clutch?!?! I’m also loving this blue lace up tee from Amelia James: a fun twist on a classic style. I’m not feeling particularly wordy lately but when the pieces are this good maybe it’s best to let them speak for themselves.
What I’m reading right now:
Good if you’re looking for suspense. It’s kind of written backwards which is an interesting if somewhat confusing writing technique. I’m almost to the end and I still have no idea what’s going to happen which is very rare (without unpredictable plot twists).
Though this one starts off with some serious subject matter, it’s a pretty fluffy read. Definitely a YA fiction reader and the ending left a little something to be desired (too many loose ends wrapped up in a pretty bow for me). Check out my instagram for a discussion of this book soon!
I haven’t gotten past the free preview but it has a promising premise and I’m looking forward to delving into it with the local book ladies!
Favorite read last month:
With a lot of fantasy and a little bit of real life, this one was an interesting read through and through. It portrays the life of a man born with extraordinary abilities that sometimes overwhelmed even him. It’s a story of human nature, love, and the bounds of imagination.
