I’ve always loved stories. Reading has been such a passion of mine since I was a little girl. I’ve never stopped reading, but I’ve also never been a writer. As much as I love different worlds, plots, and characters, it never once occurred to me that maybe I could create my own.
Let’s take a break from our regularly scheduled book reviews to chat about some life changes I’ve had in the past year. Really, just one lifestyle change.
In December of last year, I decided to try going vegan for the month of January. I found out a week or so later that this is actually a thing called Veganuary. You know how you think of something brilliant then find out it’s been a thing forever? Kind of takes the wind out of your sails, but this program meant I had some sort of support and, more importantly, a sweet name to use when I explained to people what I was doing.
Let’s have a little fireside chat about this book before I even get into the review. When you bring this book up around any member of the “literary community,” they really just about lose their shit. After hearing more than a dozen fellow book fiends swear up and down that this book simply could not be passed by, I figured maybe I could, I don’t know, check it out one of these days.
I bet you thought you’d never see me again. I wasn’t even sure if you’d ever see me again, but here I am. I don’t know how to explain my absence. It was really just laziness I guess, and there’s really no excuse for it.
