Hope in books

Today I want to join in with the Discover community and share the hope that I have found in books. I am in the process of having a children’s book published (watch this space), which is a dream come true for me.

The book that inspired me most was ‘Little Women’ by Louisa May Alcott. I had dreams of becoming a writer like Jo and used to identify with her harum scarum ways and sitting eating an apple in a garret or a tree. I dreamed of meeting my Professor Berr too (sorry if I’m giving the plot away to those who haven’t read it).

I find books transport me to a faraway land and I can simply lose myself in their pages. ‘The Remains of The Day’ is another book which has had a profound impact upon me, because it is about not settling for second best.

I am currently reading ‘The Goldfinch’. This is an interesting read and won a Pulitzer prize. Not my usual read, but is passing the time while in lockdown.

Today’s recipe of hope is to sit down and start reading a book you have wanted to read for a long time. You may want to enjoy an Easter egg while you are doing this. Enjoy X
