It’s hard to believe, but we could be considered an odd bunch here at The Bookspa. Fortunately we know each other pretty well, and aside from a knowing wink or two when Yasmin starts talking about the Black Dagger Brotherhood :), we could spend hours talking about our favourite book characters.
If you’re a kindred spirit, and you’re happy while away hour after hour discussing the not insignificant virtues of heroes and heroines like Akiva and Karou, then you’re welcome at The Bookspa any time!
This week I have been trying to read Linger, the second book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater. I’ve been really busy, so I’ve been catching a moment here and there; before dinner, after dinner, on my lunchbreak at work…
I finally finished it today, sat on a bench in the beautiful sunshine, surrounded by ducks and flowers. It sounds idyllic, but actually it was a short 30 minute break in which I also had to eat my lunch and buy some tights. Oh the glamorous life I lead.
It led me to think how wonderful life would be if there was a whole day in the week that we could spend just sitting, reading and daydreaming. It seems Lena Dunham feels the same way.
Whatever you’re doing this week, make sure you save some time to get lost in a good book. You won’t regret it!
