I’ve bought three books recently. I’m hoping to read each one and provide a review/summary of each one so others can see if they want to read them.
The Little Book of Hygge: The Danish Way to Live Well by Meik Wiking was a purchase as it’s all about cosiness, and comfort is one of the most important things to me. If you’re not comfortable, what’s the point? I haven’t worn high heels in an extremely long time because of this, as they’re just so not worth the pain and effort. Flats and skirts my make my legs look chunky, but hey, I’m still able to stand after an hour of putting them on! So I bought the book in order to understand the way the people of Denmark celebrate being cosy and see if I can learn anything.
A few weeks ago I went into Waterstones to look at The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k by Sarah Knight and discovered it was £12.99. I didn’t really want to spend that much on a book I wasn’t fully sure about (as a lot of aspects of my life can’t really apply the “don’t give a fuck” mentality) so I left it. A few days later, I get an email from Amazon letting me know a few books on my Kindle wishlist had been discounted, and this book happened to be one of them. It had dropped to 99p, so I grabbed it. No major loss if it’s not for me.
The final book is Happy: Why More or Less Everything is Absolutely Fine by Derren Brown, and I think this is the one I’m most looking forward to. I’m not entirely sure what to expect, as I haven’t done any research into it, but I don’t care either way. I love Derren’s television shows and think he has a wonderful way of looking at the world. This book might not be what I’m looking for, but I think it will be an interesting read nevertheless.
I’ll report back on each one when I’ve read them, but it may take some time, as I can’t resist a good fantasy book.
