A cup of tea and a book always make me happy. This book is awesome! Easy to read, few characters and the main one is a woman. My kind of book!

I’m almost done with this book. Not sure what I’ll read next, maybe a mystery on my Kindle. Any suggestion? What are you reading right now?

Have a great Friday!

“this particular boy looked impossibly young and fine-boned beneath the bill of his cap, his eyelids burned by the weight of a thousand silky black lashes.”

this morning i’m noticing the details of a story. i’m impressed by the writing of Ann Patchett, how she describes the characters of her story. feels like they are close by and we can touch them. her books are great! i wanted to read this one for a long time, i’m reading it slowly, few pages each morning, savoring each line.

Have a great week my friends!

Mercy :: Anne Lamott’s book

When I heard the word ‘mercy‘ the first thing that comes to my mind is this book. Anne’s goes dip into the subject of forgiveness and mercy. I’ve almost of all her books and I love them. I don’t keep lots of books, I read, make notes of what has spoken to me and I donate them. But few books I cherish and they are a reference to me, I always go back to check something or to randomly open and see which secret message it has for me.

“The message of mercy is … that it goes hand in hand with forgiveness”

702 pages

The new book of Stephen King and Owen King just came out in September – Sleeping Beauties. It has 702 pages! I got it from the library yesterday, and it was in the quick reads shelf, this means I have one week to read it, and no renew! I’m not sure where my mind was when I checked it out. But I couldn’t resist to have Mr. King’s new book in my hands.

Nurturing Thursday #4

“Nothing makes the light, the wonder, the treasure stand out so well as darkness.”

If you followed my previous blog you know that my favourite book is Women who run with the wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes.  I keep it always close to me on my bedside table, or on my desk in my studio. When I need a word of comfort or inspiration I open this book to a random page and for sure I find what I’m looking for.

Hope you have a wonderful and inspired Thursday.
