I recently saw Jamie’s (at The Perpetual Page-Turner) post called “If We Were Having Coffee” and I thought it was a wonderful idea! So I decided to bring it over here and do a segment every once in a while that I’d like to call “Coffee and Books!” It’s just a cozy little chit chat about life and books, so here’s what I’d tell you if we were having coffee (or tea or hot chocolate)…
I’ve been a crazy reading machine lately. I don’t know how, but I managed to read fourteen things in March. My favorite read of March was Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton and ohmygod. It was so. Good! You have to read it!
Possibly the reason why I’ve been able to read so much is that I’m now on Medical leave. I’ve spent the last month adjusting to that and resting. It’s not my favorite thing, but i try not to feel sorry for myself and to make the best of everything. Sometimes it’s hard. I just want to be like other people my age, going out and having fun and going to class and not completely falling apart. To paraphrase Suzanne Collins, “it’s ten times as hard to pull yourself together as it is to fall apart.” And it is hard. But I’m still trying.
Spring is beautiful here where I live and breathing in the fresh, crisp, clean air is good for me. We have a ton of spring celebrations and festivals and my friend wants to take me out to one, so that should be fun.
I’m looking forward to the future with hope. Now that I’m back home, hopefully I’ll be able to chill with some good friends and do some fun things. And of course, there’s always escaping through reading.
So that’s all for now. I don’t know when I’ll do this again, but it was refreshing! Now it’s your turn–
