The Midnight Library was the last book I finished reading in 2020, and as it's a book about reflection and wishes. It's about wanting something different from what you've got in life. It was the perfect book to help me reflect on a rather unique year.
Frank Sinatra sang about regrets, he had a few. The Midnight Library is where Nora faces a few of her own regrets. What happens when you actually live the life you thought you wanted?
I don't want to spoil anything, but I can promise you won't regret it.
Happy New Year's Eve everyone!
Some of the books under the tree this year!
If you need to learn how to shed the stress during the holidays, I recommend a Minimalist Christmas.
If you're not successful at getting ride of the stress, I can recommend A Very Sweary Dictionary.
Jane Austen was born on this day in 1775. It's her 245th birthday!
Although she was acting in her and her family’s best interests, I see the loss of Jane Austen’s letters as one of the biggest travesties in the world of literature.
Her work speaks for herself, but I’m a JA fangirl, and if there’s one thing I love, it’s knowing what she was really thinking.
I found this book tucked away at The Open Book in Richmond while taking a lovely group on the London Bookshop Crawl back in February 2020.
Of course I haven’t read it yet, so this is a good chance to sit down and enjoy what letters do remain!
I read a lot and I hope to help authors with the craft of writing. I share good examples of difficult aspects of writing: point of view, narration, world building and more.
Occasionally I give editing tips and share insights from the world of publishing.
