If you want to know my favorite thing to do on a rainy day it’s sip tea and read a book. Literally, I couldn’t be happier. To me there is basically nothing more relaxing than escaping into a story. You know how some books just eat you up heart and soul? You read them and are forever changed. Or, you read them and know you will never forget the characters no matter what. It’s so interesting to me how words on a page create such strong emotions. How things we read become echoes not only in our minds, but in our hearts as well. Man I love reading. So much.
One of my top five books that I have read, then reread, and then reread like seven more times is Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Maguire. If you were to ask me why I love it I would say I read it at a point in my life where connecting with these characters was seamless. Their story quickly became important to me simply because of how they made me feel. There is nothing more to it. These characters made me feel. I love them. I love this book. And, whenever I am stuck deciding what to read next I pick this up and read it again. There is a sense of comfort in returning to a story that touched your heart. And, I think, even though I could basically quote this whole book, I will always come back to it.
Oh man, words. I love them.
PS. This is not at all sponsored. I’m just a book nerd and habitual tea drinker that wanted to share a real life snap of my life. Yoga pants, tea, and books. Forever. Ever. But, like, because the baby is napping and the olders are reading books too.
