Anyone else think of their bad as their happy place...? 👀🙋🏻‍♂️😂 If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably knew it was a matter of time until I went back to the all white bedding. Just can’t go wrong. 🤣

Hey everyone! I just finished The Disasters and I loved it! It was such a funny, fast paced space opera that really reminded me of Guardians of the Galaxy🖤it was also so diverse so it’s really an all around amazing novel! if you guys like sci fi, I would HIGHLY recommend this💙
QOTD: favourite sci fi?
AITD: Illuminae!!

The Woman in Black is hiding somewhere around Airthrey lake by the University of Stirling campus. Anyone seen it?

About the book:
What real reader does not yearn, somewhere in the recesses of his or her heart, for a really literate, first-class thriller--one that chills the body, but warms the soul with plot, perception, and language at once astute and vivid? In other words, a ghost story written by Jane Austen?

Alas, we cannot give you Austen, but Susan Hill's remarkable Woman In Black comes as close as our era can provide. Set on the obligatory English moor, on an isolated causeway, the story has as its hero Arthur Kipps, an up-and-coming young solicitor who has come north from London to attend the funeral and settle the affairs of Mrs. Alice Drablow of Eel Marsh House. The routine formalities he anticipates give way to a tumble of events and secrets more sinister and terrifying than any nightmare: the rocking chair in the deserted nursery, the eerie sound of a pony and trap, a child's scream in the fog, and most dreadfully--and for Kipps most tragically--The Woman In Black.

The Woman In Black is both a brilliant exercise in atmosphere and controlled horror and a delicious spine-tingler--proof positive that this neglected genre, the ghost story, isn't dead after all.

There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them-Sylvia Plath
•••••
QOTD: Do you prefer baths or showers!✨
•••••
AOTD: on a day to day basis I like showers but I like to relax in the bath with whatever my current read is about once a week/every other week! There’s something so peaceful and nice about reading in a bath!😍
••
Check out the products from my April unboxing of @whimsicalspruce goodies! Pictured here is the Prose bath bomb, Highlanders Hearth soap, Elven Queen roller ball perfume and a sample of their Rose soap to try out
••
Let me tell you, these all smell so good. My favourite scent is definitely Highlanders Hearth with the bathbomb being a close second. I haven’t tried themyet(mostly because we haven’t had a sunny day for me to be able to take photos with them 😭) but I’ll be sure o keep you posted with my thoughts! You can use my code ERICA10 to save some precious 💸

My new writing space, just in time for my #youtube premiere! (This Friday — 6 days and counting!)
😱😳😊
I knew my boring white wall wouldn’t work well for a video backdrop, so I dug out an old gift card and borrowed some things and created an aesthetic wall. I’ve already done on editing session here and I already felt inspired.
🌿❤️👩🏻‍💻
#qotd: What inspires you?
🌳⛰🗺
Here’s a small portion of my list: nature including trees, mountains, water, and sunshine, books and stories, history, inspirational sayings, and all of you! thank you all for being the incredible, supportive people you are.

Q- Did you watch Saturday Morning Cartoons? Do they even have Saturday morning cartoons, like CBS Saturday mornings? 
A- Ahh,  Saturday mornings 70's (yes I am old people)  cartoons. Tom and Jerry, Grape  Ape, Jetsons, The Pink Panter, Jabber Jaw, Josie and The Pussycats, Shazam, The Land of the Lost. We definitely have come along way in animated cartoons, and kids shows. All I know is that my stepson has learned how to work Netflix since he was 3. So I have no Idea other then on Disney who has cartoons. Or are they call kid shows now? Hmmmm 🤔🤔

Day #1: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. I read this book a few years ago, and it is one of those that I still think about to this day. I think everyone who has read this gem agrees with me when I say you can’t help but love Ove - the grouchy old man who happens to have the kindest heart. This is a book that should be read by all, and is sure to be cherished. 📖 .
.
.
I took a picture this morning before work of this book with full intentions of posting it this morning but then I realized what a beautiful day it was going to be & decided to wait and get one later on this afternoon - this is the result. ☀️ .

I haven’t got much reading done this week as I was much busier than I expected. I did manage to get through a few chapters of Vox whilst I was on the train and I’m hoping to get it finished this week. 🤞🏼 I feel like I’m at the point in the book where the story is getting a little sidetracked but I was loving the intensity so I hope that there won’t be disappointing ending. .
.
I’m to finish This is how it Always is by the end of the month and still deciding on my May tbr. I’m thinking I might try to read some small books next month as I’m definitely not doing well with long reads this year. 🙄 .

English poet playwright William Shakespeare died today in 1616.  It is not known for sure but it is believed he was born on this day in 1564.  He was baptised on the 26th April and baptisms took place within 3 days after birth at the time.  He was only 52.  It’s amazing that 400 years on his writing is studied in high schools across the globe.

Reading this book is such a memorable experience that will stay with me a long time. I didn't want it to end! I was just too absorbed by the story and fell in love with the protagonist's eccentricities and uniqueness. I can't count the number of times I laughed like a complete bonker because of Ms. Eleanor Oliphant's quirky behaviour and social awkwardness. Her being opinionated and straightforward--- it's just hilarious, yet charming. Her story, albeit too sad my eyes were puffy at the end, has moved me so much and has given me a greater sense of appreciation for life, family, friendship, and kindness.
.
If based on @frustratedangel's book rating criteria, I will most certainly give it a perfect ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐. Also, if you're into vodka, flowers, british cuisine, & french idioms, this is the book for you! 😆😆😆

Today is Earth Day! 🌎 We only get one planet, fellow bookworms, so consider what you might do to care for it today. It could be as simple as turning off the faucet while you brush your teeth so as not to waste clean water, or bringing a reusable grocery bag to reduce use of paper or plastic bags. Big things are made out of little things, after all. 🌎🌷🍃♻️💧💚

“They didn’t need to see me for me to be who I was.”
•••
Women’s Prize No. 2/16
{Freshwater} by Akwaeke Emezi is another of the longlisted titles that I would strongly consider rereading if it makes the shortlist next week. I read this book about a year ago, and it still stands out as one of the most impressive books I have ever read.
•••
This is the story of a Nigerian person who struggles through early life and into adulthood with a host of conflicting selves trapped inside one body. The novel explores the Igbo belief of Ogbanje, evil spirits connected to a certain family. It also delves deeply into the challenges and dangers facing a person who does not identify with any of the accepted labels that human beings often seem to require each other to choose from. For me this was both a captivating and eye-opening read; it certainly challenged my sense of what “madness” means and how it is qualified, as well as which aspects of life might be useful (or not) to bother qualifying. This was one of my favorite reads of 2018, and I am so happy to see it receiving some attention on this longlist. 5⭐️

“vegr yfir fjor. honor above life” ⚔️

I read Sky In The Deep by Adrienne Young this month and I really enjoyed it! I received it in an Owlcrate last year and kind of pushed it aside, having no interest in it. for some reason I decided to pick it up a couple of weeks ago and it definitely exceeded my expectations! it has some awesome fighting scenes, strong family relationships, and an enemies to lovers / slow burn romance 😏❤️
-
also, happy earth day! I often forget about it because this day holds a different meaning to me. 4/22/14 is the day I underwent a surgery that I truly believe changed my life. today marks five years which is crazy to me because it feels like just yesterday. ✨
-
qotd: comment some ways we can help save our planet!! I’ll go first- get a reusable water bottle! you don’t need a $60 hydroflask or anything fancy. you could literally just take a normal plastic one and keep refilling it instead of grabbing a new one every time ♻️

Helllo Bookdragons! How is your Monday?! Winding down or just getting started? I’m at work for another 1-1 1/2. 😑 if I got up earlier I’d be home by now but, I AM NOT a morning person😖 I will legit verbally-and possibly physically-DESTROY you if you wake me before 900. 😒And if I have to be up before that, coffee or no, I’m in FULL bitch mode 🤷🏽‍♀️🙈 (Every Tuesday and Thursday for class 😂) Probably because I don’t fall asleep until like 3-330 and I never sleep through the night either 🤷🏽‍♀️ Anywho, I am in LOVE with this gorgeous candle from @burningbrightcandleco !!! Swipe for a close up and it smells incredible! 😍😍 Also, RS is one of my fave contemporary romance authors! I have read these two books at LEAST 10 times each!! Seriously! If you’re looking for a hilarious, sweet, tension-filled hate to love,  READ THEM!! Happy Reading Lovelies!! 💕💕

I finished Delicate Edible Birds during my lunch break today so I’m switching over to malbec and The Lost Vintage for this dreary evening. I love books that center around a vineyard or wine in general (Sweetbitter was one of my favorite books last year!) so I am excited to pick this one up. What is everyone else reading and drinking tonight?

#allthebooksapril SCI-FI
I'm not really into sci-fi but I'm definitely into supporting Aussie authors & here is one heck of a good book by Aussie author Nick Milligan!
Synopsis: Before joining NASA's space program, Jack had dreams of a career as a professional musician. When a deep space mission goes awry, he crashes on an alien planet. Jack discovers that this new world is inhabited by a race that have evolved in parallel to Earth.
Jack picks up a guitar & performs the most classic rock songs from his home planet only to find this new planet does not know the music.  Instant stardom beckons Jack.
Jack soon learns that his lie will have sinister consequences.
#ENORMITY by #jackmilligan can be found on Amazon & is a must read!

Что 120 лет для почти классика? Ничто! Почти юность. Этим задором и прыткостью языка он покоряет с первых своих книг. Тогда ещё Российская империя дышит революцией — в умах, в душах, в сознании. И молодой писатель Владимир Си́рин соединил в себе два века — прошлое (с его ушедшей размеренностью и стилем, тактичностью и высоким требованием к себе) и пришедшее, ворвавшееся с переустройством быта, нравов, жизни...
❇
Для себя я понял Набокова как человека невероятных соединений — творчества и науки, прекрасно-ветреного и скрупулёзно-дотошного к мелочам, поэта-лирика и фундаментального прозаика, у которого всё всегда на своём месте. Набоков загадывает нам загадки, впускает в интеллектуальную и стилистическую игру, а читателю надо только начать, ведь за видимой простотой скрывается улыбка хитреца. Русский ли он писатель? Да! Американский? Конечно! Но он такой же немецкий или французский, разве нет? Для меня Набоков — писатель про “здесь и сейчас“, но только ты найдёшь опору, как она вдруг уплывает, только успевай опомниться.
❇
«Писателя можно оценивать с трех точек зрения: как рассказчика, как учителя, как волшебника. Все трое ― рассказчик, учитель, волшебник ― сходятся в крупном писателе, но крупным он станет, когда первую скрипку играет волшебник»
(«Лекции по зарубежной литературе»).
❇
Я не так много прочитал книг Набокова, но это как “литература на вырост“ — всегда есть куда совершенствовать себя и свой литературный вкус, чувство языка и высокого стиля. О писателе написано много, я выбрал для себя двухтомник Брайана Бойда, новозеландского биографа Набокова.
❇
«Вся Россия, которая мне нужна, всегда со мной: литература, язык и моё собственное детство. Я никогда не вернусь. Никогда не сдамся»
(из книги-сборника интервью Набокова «Строгие суждения», КоЛибри, 2018)
❇
Сознание своего места в мире и осознание момента со всеми его гранями и полутонами, чувство прекрасного и любовь к жизни, невероятно трепетное употребление языка — это всё у Набокова есть. Читайте его книги и лекции.
Совершенствуйтесь!
❇
«Я мыслю как гений, пишу как выдающийся автор и говорю как дитя»
❇
«Настоящий писатель должен внимательно изучать творчество соперников, включая Всевышнего»

С юбилеем Вас!

"Reading gives us someplace to go, when we have to stay where we are" - Mason Cooley.

Hello There! It's been a long week and it's only tuesday. Goddamn! Can't wait for my weekend ..😪 I am hoping to book a holiday in September and visit Dubai though..😍 So excited😍 Pretty much the only thing I am looking forward to apart from my anticipated book releases i.e :p.... .
.
.
Reading is more like therapy, a ritual I follow to unwind after a tiring day. ...I usually read for about 30- 45 minutes before I start dropping the kindle on  my face ..😅 #problemsofanebookreader 🤷

I have recently started using my scented candle collection i keep hoarding because they look too pretty to burn them🤦 but it feels so much better... I could get used to this🤪

Q1: Do you have any reading rituals you follow?

Q2: What are you looking forward to this year?

How do you get out of reading slumps?

Reading has been such a struggle this month. My first two reads in April were pretty big let downs which I think has set my reading mood for everything else.

I'm currently reading Geekerella as well as The Sun is Also a Star. Both are amazing books so far but I haven't had the motivation to finish them.

Slowly collecting @cjredwine #Ravenspire #series to read it.. #Bookone #theshadowqueen
##
####
######
Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She’ll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.

In the neighboring kingdom of Eldr, when Prince Kol’s father and older brother are killed by an invading army of magic-wielding ogres, the second-born prince is suddenly given the responsibility of saving his kingdom. To do that, Kol needs magic of his own—and the only way to get it is to make a deal with the queen of Ravenspire, promise to become her personal huntsman—and bring her Lorelai’s heart.

But Lorelai is nothing like Kol expected—beautiful, fierce, and unstoppable—and despite dark magic, Lorelai is drawn in by the passionate and troubled king. Fighting to stay one step ahead of the dragon huntsman—who she likes far more than she should—Lorelai does everything in her power to ruin the wicked queen. But Irina isn’t going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose.

But Lorelai is nothing like Kol expected—beautiful, fierce, and unstoppable—and despite dark magic, Lorelai is drawn in by the passionate and troubled king. Fighting to stay one step ahead of the dragon huntsman—who she likes far more than she should—Lorelai does everything in her power to ruin the wicked queen. But Irina isn’t going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose.

Can we all just take a minute and appreciate the impact books can have on our lives?
Last winter I went home to visit my parents over the holidays. One evening I felt lost and didn’t know what to do with myself. I thought back of when I was in high school and thought making a cake would be a great idea because that is what I used to do whenever I felt that way. But my mum told me it’s to late and everyone is already asleep. So I went back into my room and looked and my messy bookshelf. I used to have my English and German books separated but since moving to the UK I have way to many English books to do that. And because they all started stacking up on the floor I decided to just organize the shelf. Over an hour later my mum came into my room to check on me because me still being up got her worried. But I just smiled and told her to have a look at my bookshelf. .
.
Today has been a wonderful day. We spent most of it outside in the sun. But by the time it was time for bed I noticed myself feeling down and lost again. It has been a while since I felt this way but I took out my phone and went on Instagram to look at all the beautiful pictures of books and without even realizing I felt happy again. It sometimes surprises me that books can change my mind so easily but I am so thankful to have something in my life that makes me happy. So here is a big thank you to all of the beautiful people that follow me and like my pictures. I love you all 💕

🌿 "Leaves make sugar. Plants are the only things in the universe that can make sugar out of nonliving inorganic matter. All the sugar that you have ever eaten was first made within a leaf. Without a constant supply of glucose to your brain, you will die. Period. Under duress, your liver can make glucose out of protein or fat – but that protein or fat was originally constructed from a plant sugar within some other animal. It’s inescapable: at this very moment, within the synapses of your brain, leaves are fueling thoughts of leaves." 🌿

🌱 Happy Earth Day! 🌎 I couldn't let this day pass without a shout-out to one of my favorite recent reads - Lab Girl by Hope Jahren. One part science, one part memoir, it's the story of one woman's journey as a scientist studying plant life. While that may not sound like a particularly thrilling title to some (unless you are a 🌿 nerd ☺), I found in this book a deeply personal account that touched on themes of friendship, perseverance, loyalty and love. It was a truly beautifully written piece.  Although I may have trouble summarizing it, I found it very hard to pick just ONE quote to share - there were so many good ones. Do yourself a favor and listen to the audiobook if you have a chance - it is read by the author herself. ☺🌱

Starting the work week on a Tuesday feels amazing! We enjoyed all the extra time for activities and reading over the long Easter weekend. Playing games with my W is one of my favourite things to do. Who was the foosball champion you wonder? The 12 year old beat me  good, he has a knack for foosball. What was your favourite childhood game?

Hallo my friends!! Real talk 💕🤗
___
I love the shadowhunter chronicles, I absolutely adore the writing stile, I feel deeply in love with the characters and the shadowhunter world and its concept is breathtakingly and Cassandra Clare is a genius! 
___ 
I know there is a big hype surrounding these books, but I also have to admit I don’t particularly like the last three books in the series. I really have to force myself to finish the last book cause it’s been so long since I’ve read the other books, I think I was fourteen or fifteen! It’s been a long journey and i love the characters but something about the plot makes me feel like it’s constantly repeating itself 🙈🤦🏼‍♀️
____
Sorry, if you love the book that’s fine! Really I mean no harm, I simply had to get this of my chest!
___
If you feel differently, please convince me otherwise! And if you feel the same, please let me know I’m not alone! 📖☀️

🌏 Happy Earth Day lovelies! 🌎 .
The weather has been so nice here that I spent most of the afternoon/early evening gardening yay 😊 Potting some flowers on, and then planting out beetroot and carrots, as well as a general tidy up. Soooo nice, but I’m sad the long weekend is over.
.
So for #bookishsignssquad we’re talking about bromance! I thought I’d show a bit of Sherlock and Watson love! .
Do you have a favourite Sherlock - book, series, actor? Personally, I like Benedict Cumberbatch for actors, and Anthony Horowitz’s new(ish) books! But I’m intrigued to read A Study in Charlotte...
.
⁉️QOTD Do you like Sherlock? How about other mysteries? And - any other gardeners out there? 🙈
.
Awesome bookmark is from @thetsundokuchroniclesetsy - you can use ARWEN10 to save at checkout! All Neelam’s books are double sided too (this side is the funniest 😂)
.
.
Necklace (swipe for closeup) is from @sweetmelissasgiftsetc 😊

Posting waaaaay later than I meant to - I’m off to sleep 😴

Happy Monday!

I'm starting to catalog all of the books I've purchased in the last couple of months and there are so many popular ones I have to read. I loved Flame in the Mist by @reneeahdieh so I've no doubt I'll like The Wrath and the Dawn but to quote a new recent favorite, "Too many books. Too few centuries." - Nevernight. So while my goal of reading more of what I own has been going well, I think I'm buying at a faster rate than I am reading 🤦🏻‍♀️ the curse of a reader. I have to be getting close to 800 books now and less probably 10% have been read.

This Rhysand candle from @book_and_jane probably has little in common with this book but I just love the colors of it! (And it smells amazing) Use SASSY20 to save in her shop!

qotd: Roughly how many of your books have you not read?

Hello everyone, it's been a while. I hope you all had a good Easter! I've been so busy lately but managed to finally take some time for myself over this weekend to enjoy the sunshine and finally get started on Prisoner of Askaban!

I've said before that PoA is my favourite book in the Harry Potter series - the plot is much more intriguing to an older reader, and you can see the differences in the maturity of the characters compared to the previous two books. Rowling also takes care to show us more to the world she has created, while still making sure to elicit more questions than answers. But the main reason I love PoA so much is the cast of lovable characters that are introduced, ones that stick with you for the remainder of the series. The amount of character development Rowling has dedicated her time to in this makes me slightly jealous of her abilities. For all of her faults, she certainly had her good moments while writing.

My favourite character is probably Remus. Who is your favourite Harry Potter character?

Los momentos de mamá 💛
.

Qué importantes son estos momentos para nosotras, ¿verdad? Después de un día agotador (bueno, Emma ha dormido hasta las 11 y luego nos hemos echado dos horas de siesta 💁, pero ya sabéis, jeje) no hay nada mejor que sacar un ratillo para hacer algo que te guste. Esta semana pasada he podido aprovecharla a tope para estudiar y empezar a leer otra vez que llevaba mucho sin coger un libro por placer 😋 .
.
Empecé "Love Story" un pelín antes de dar a luz, lo he vuelto a empezar hace un par de días en ratillos sueltos y ya me quedan cuarenta páginas. De momento no sé si me gusta o no. ¿Lo habéis leído? .

Hello lovelies x
Happy Monday!
I’m #currentlyreading The Last Namsara, and WHOA. Asha better get away from that awful dude. 
As a side note, I had a super passionate discussion with my neurologist today about overdrive. Does anyone else use it, and if you do, how often?

🔮Hey Kids! Eu tenho a sua atenção?
Hoje é dia vinte e dois e há mais exato um ano criei esse ig e nunca pensei que essa decisão que tomei fosse mudar tanto a minha vida.
.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Antes eu não sabia exatamente o que compartilhar aqui e nem como um Bookstagram funcionava mas graças a Deus e algumas pessoas incríveis que conheci aqui finalmente peguei o jeito.
.
.
Não vou mentir e dizer que a palavra desistir não passou pela minha cabeça pois ela passou sim e muito recentemente também.⠀
.
.
Mas nesse trajeto aprendi muitas coisas e conheci tantas pessoas incríveis, vários autores que confiaram em mim e que viraram amigos e me deixaram ainda mais viciada em livros 😁
.
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Gostaria de agradecer imensamente a cada um de vocês que realmente me acompanham que assistem meus stories que lêem os meus posts, e que são pacientes e devido a demora para os posts serem lançados.😅 Vocês que tornaram tudo isso possível. 💖 Que me motivam a continuar e a trazer conteúdo de qualidade para vocês todo dia. ⠀
.
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Obrigada pelo carinho de cada um, obrigada por cada comentário, cada curtida, cada mensagem fofa, obrigada a cada seguidor. Vocês todos são muito importantes para mim. .
.
Fazem com que eu sinta que todo o esforço vale a pena e torna este cantinho cada vez mais especial para mim. E que eu continue trazendo conteúdos legais para vocês. 
Afinal, é uma das minhas esperanças. 💖😁.
.
.
É tanto a agradecer que me faltam palavras. Então mais uma vez muito obrigada! 🎉🎂

That's all! 💀🎃👽

This is typically not the kind of book I read but I got it free and it turned out to be such a great escape, especially in bright and sunny weather like the one we're having. 🌞☀️
-
-
"Girls of Riyadh" follows four young Saudi women looking for love but stymied by a system that allows them only limited freedoms and has very specific expectations and demands. There's little to no contact between men and women. -
-
I stay away from romance novels because of how unrealistic they are and I found this to be exactly the case. The frustrated emotions of the female characters seemed believable but the male characters seemed dominated only by passion and therefore unconvincing. -
-
Another point of disappointment I had with this book is that romance dominates so completely. These are educated women with big dreams, on their way to becoming professionals and the like....but get sidetracked because of insecure f*ckboys! Made me so mad. Is anyone still reading this? 🤭😅
-
-
Seriously though, these women have such big aspirations when an ill-intentioned or confuzzled man comes into their lives initially as a knight in shining armor then completely screws them over in one way or another. Ugh!
-
-
The lesson I draw from this book is to heed the advice of Lauryn Hill who specifically says "girls, you know you better watch out, some guys are only about..." basically advising us not to allow “that thing” to lead to the destruction of our lives.
-
-
Anyways, if you're looking for a light read to get your mind off of life, this book is quite nice.

오늘은 책을 좋아하는 사람들과 책에 관련된 일을 하는 사람들에게 특별히 의미 있는 날이랍니다. 유엔의 전문 기구인 유네스코에서는 1995년부터 4월 23일을 ‘세계 책의 날’ 또는 ‘세계 책과 저작권의 날’로 기념하기 시작했죠.
.
4월 23일은 <돈키호테>의 작가 세르반테스와 <로미오와 줄리엣>의 작가 셰익스피어가 같은 해 같은 날 세상을 떠난 날짜라고 알려져 있는데, 기록에 따르면 당시 스페인과 영국은 각자 사용했던 달력이 서로 달랐기 때문에 실제로는 열흘의 차이가 있다고 하네요.
.
어제 4월 22일은 ‘지구의 날’이었는데 깜박하고 지구에게 많은 신경을 써 주진 못했어요. 오늘 ‘세계 책의 날’도 어제와 많이 다르진 않겠지만, 책을 좋아하는 한 사람으로서 그리고 책에 관련된 일을 하고 싶어하는 한 사람으로서, 오늘만큼은 문학의 기둥을 세운 두 작가 세르반테스와 셰익스피어에 대해 생각해 보는 시간을 잠시라도 꼭 가져 보려고 합니다~^^

Never underestimate the secretary... A slow burning legal thriller novel about secrets and the power of people who we take advantage of. 
Christine is Mina's secretary and has been for almost 20 years. Whatever Mina asks her to do, she does. Wherever she asks her to be, she is. Christine does everything she is told, you can say she is almost her right hand woman. But when she tells Christine to dispose of some boxes, little does Christine know that this little act will spiral her entire life out of control. 
This novel is told in the point of view of Christine. We learn how she became to be her secretary, what her duties are, and we get a glimpse into how her mind works. It's not hard to see that this job changes Christine and in the novel you will see how. It makes you think whether she was always like this or whether it was the job that made her this way. 
A majority of the novel takes place in a courtroom which normally I would find boring, but it was very exciting to read and it made me feel as if I was in the courtroom myself as I watched every secret get revealed. I think for me, that was the point in the novel when I started rooting for Christine. 
Christine is not much of an antagonist in this novel, but she does go a little crazy near the end of the novel. The last 75 pages were probably my favourite because I feel like that's where the story really started to pick up its pace and I found myslef enjoying those last few pages, more than the beginning of the novel. 
Loved the way the cover smartly hides part of the word Secret(ary), it really was full of secrets! 
For those of you who enjoy a courtroom drama with secrets, this one's for you!
