Lost in a Novel

It has been a very hectic week at work and I’m not even near the end of all the fidget. And I think winter has finally arrived here in the Netherlands, at least in the northern half of the country. In my hometown however, it just gets colder, but no sign of snow and ice yet. Woohoo (sorry for all the winter wonderland lovers, but I’m more of a spring/summer girl). All the more reason for me to hide myself in a blanket and loose myself in a good book. It’s been ages since I lost myself in a book. But the everyday’s reality, a very busy job and a fun social life all make it difficult for me to achieve.There are a lot of books in my bookcase that are waiting to be read. Like ‘Sophie’s World’ for example, the classic novel by Jostein Gaarder. I’m ashamed to say it, but I have that book for more than a decade and still don’t make the time to read it. Shame on me!

The fantasy novel ‘The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel’ by Michael Scott is also one of the books that I long to read. Well, there’s 6 books! I heard that there’s a film adaptation of these books, so I really really want need to read it before the movie’s released.

And then there are tons of books written by my favorite international author Paulo Coelho that I keep buying. These books keep each other company in my bookshelf, but still…

Although it’s just Monday, I think I have an idea what I’m gonna do this weekend…

  1. I love Paulo Coelho as well. My favorite book from him has to be “By The River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept”. If it’s laying there on your bookshelf and you haven’t read it yet, you should definitely read it this weekend!

    • Guilty as charged ^^. I hate to admit it, but that is indeed one of his books I already owned and haven’t read yet. I was actually flipping coins what to read this weekend. Thanks for the tip, Ari.
