Elizabeth Little’s Pretty as a Picture, which I just finished and made me laugh out loud. Yep, a mystery that made me LOL under lockdown. The second is Jennifer Hillier’s Little Secrets. This one is dark and entrancing. I am so grateful to both authors for creating books so strong that they took me out of myself for a few hours so my body and mind could rest.
Words of Wisdom
It is hard to read right now, and there’s no way around that. But if you find the right book, you will get back to that love, and that grounding, so I recommend giving a book ten pages (drastic, I know). If it doesn’t grab your attention by then, put it aside for now and pick up the next one. The book that will get you back on your feet is out there, and there’s a good chance it’s on your To Be Read pile.
