There are so many different kinds of books- so many genres and topics to consider; so many wonderful distractions from the world around us. I’m in dire need of a distraction. A romantic getaway created by the words on a page or a comedy or book version of a chick flick that will make me laugh so hard that I’m holding my stomach whilst on the floor. Life is serious as an adult. There are far too many tears shed and tense shoulders caused by the ‘normal’ everyday stress things of the world creates. We see the news and everyday it’s the same old same old stuff. It’s become so repetitive that, nowadays, a murder or rape isn’t as devastatingly shocking to hear as it’s become a sick and twisted feature of our everyday lives, whether we like it or not.
I find that, though we can change the world one step at a time, a break is much needed. An escape more-so. Not all of us are lucky enough to afford a holiday away BUT I always believed that books were a good enough escape…once upon a time. I remember reading a book and never being able to put it down. Lately, though, life has come in the way and I haven’t been able to find a good book yet- one that sucks me in on the first few pages of the first chapter.
SO I ask YOU to give me a few pointers in the right direction of really great books! Books that tug you in, hook, line and sinker. One’s you just cannot put down. I’ve only had that once or twice in my childhood. I’m just not one for horrors or scary kinda books. Picture me as a girly girl- except, I do like the thought provoking kind of books; ones where you’re left wondering and pondering.
I’m all eyes and ears so fire away ;).
I look forward to hearing from you! I may just blog about the book you recommend to me… WHO KNOWS?
Until next time
