it’s that time of the year AGAIN! I know, I feel it too. Love is in the air, roses are falling, chocolates are melting, and hearts, well hearts are beating.
For some, wine , chocolate and fine dining will carry the day, others will be having plenty of mindless fun, that only they can truly interpret it’s meaning.
However if you are like me, well, you are twiddling your thumbs and wondering when will the day end… I feel you! however knowing me by now, you know I firmly believe that there is nothing that a book can’t solve! nothing.
So to get through the day I am going to curl up with 3 books of varying genres, I encourage you to join me, and let’s get through the V day together.
A horror book is definitely the best place to start, especially one that will scare the heart wrenching breakup out of you, so much so that when you come to final end of the book, your only worry would be what is lurking in the shadows , as opposed to the shadow of a man who somewhat owned your heart once upon a time!
I shall be hanging out with Stephen King for this one, I know he won’t disappoint. He never does!
Because sometimes I tend to be a glass half full kind of person, I like to think of a time love will be non elusive and relationships will eventually make sense. Until then, I will continue to live vicariously through books, and that is why, to my mix, I have added a melancholic sort of book. It’s not my cup of tea, definitely I was given the book by a true friend, who insisted I needed to read it. Brilliantly written, I see myself in each of the pages! The language however is a tad too strong for my liking, the feelings though are so raw, you can’t help but fall in love with the writing.
Third and final book, well, a good cry always works wonders. and let’s face it, maybe it’s time to curl up in the corner of my room, ball of tissue in my hand, and wail like there is no tomorrow no? However right about now I feel I am so over a good cry, and something funky and funny, that can add a step to my walk will do just fine. I have a good mind to hang out with Sue Townsend, she comes highly recommended and is described as “touching and ridiculously funny!” sounds just like what the Doctor ordered no?
Happy Valentines Day!
Drop me a line or two, in the comments below, on how you will be celebrating the day! It’s only fair, seeing that I shared first 🙂
