Falling in Love with Reading All Over Again.

Falling in Love with Reading All Over Again.

It has been a while since I have updated this blog, as many of you know I lost someone incredibly close to me, and she was my sister. She passed suddenly, and with her all certainty I felt about myself and the world around me vanished. I was lost in an ocean of grief, confusion, despair and fear. I feel it is a great privilege to have loved and been loved so much that it hurts this bad to lose her, and I feel that privilege every day.

During my grieving process I continued to read, not as often as I used to, but when I felt able to I lost myself in a world of someone else’s creation. Literature has always been pure magic to me, from back when I was a kid excited to visit the library, maxing out my library card and devouring page after page of novels into the early hours of the morning, flashlight in hand. I have always enjoyed escapism, having the chance to visit places I’ve never been too all from the comfort of my own bed. It has taken time to feel ready to come back to reviewing, to be able to fully digest my emotions around everything, to put down on paper how a book made me feel, when some days I didn’t even know how I felt.

I started this blog because I was passionate about reading, about writing, about books. I wanted the opportunity to explore new titles, share my thoughts and read others too. I have changed so much since I started this blog, but my passion for literature is one thing no amount of pain could ever truly take away. Now I’m back and I’m excited to fall in love with reading all over again.

All my love,

A Personal Note

A Personal Note

Hello, you may have noticed I have been much less active recently. A few months ago I lost someone very suddenly who was incredibly close to me, the grief I have felt has been overwhelming, but during this time I have found comfort in the little joys of life, one of which is of course books. I have delved between the pages of childhood comforts, explored new novels and revisited old haunts. How I feel as a person has shifted, is continuously shifting, and with that my reading tastes are too. With that being said, I would love to hear your favourite comfort reads, those books you can go back to time and time again and it feels like coming home.

All my love,

E.
