World Book Day.
Yesterday was the best excuse to buy new books and I'm very much looking forward to a few parcels arriving next week, lighting a candle and forgetting about the world for a little while each evening.
The Casual Vacancy.
I loved the book when I read it a few years ago, it was one of the first novels to make me ball my eyes out at the end, and I really liked the BBC adaptation. The ending was a little different but it still absolutely broke my heart.
They produced the perfect soundtrack to The Casual Vacancy and I've been listening to their tracks a lot on Spotify over the past few weeks.
Corpus Christi: Stories by Bret Anthony Johnston
A cracking short story collection that I really recommend! It's a roller-coaster of emotion, that's for sure!
In the past I haven't had the best track record when it comes to keeping house plants alive, but I'm determined to change that. Perhaps it's the anticipation of spring, but the desire to fill my home with plants has well & truly taken hold and I love how homely they make a room feel.
