I love a good old lazy Sunday and I’ve found a new meme that I can well and truly get on board with.
Today I woke when my body clock woke I had a chilled morning reading the gorgeous Miranda Dickinson’s Somewhere Beyond The Sea which is so far a truly magical read that’s got all the feels of a heartwarming read. Before heading out for a picnic with my family which for me was a struggle but it worked out well in the end.
In scrolling through WordPress I came across Six for Sunday and in reading two gorgeous posts I thought I would get involved.
Six for Sunday is a weekly meme set up by alittlebutalot you can find the full list Here
Today the theme is six reasons why I love books.
Dreaming – I love that books can let me dream and discover new things about myself and the passions I have and would love to hone in on. They give me hope and inspire me on a day to day basis.
Escapism – In reading other six for six posts I believe escapism seems to be the theme. No matter what’s happening in my life or the world for that matter a book can well and truly let you escape. You can be in a different time or country. As it stands I’m reading a book that well and truly lets me escape to the seaside in the most magical of settings.
Travel – Through a book you can travel the world. Isabelle Broom’s took me to Mojacar and now I’m so eager to visit this beautiful part of Spain. Watch this space as I may well be talking about this a lot more.
Friends – My love of books has given me a number of amazing friends. Some of which I haven’t known for too long but they are always there for me and have my back. They are also the reason why my TBR pile is ever expanding but they have given me some wonderful books to devour and authors to love, which I am truly grateful for. I don’t always have time for reading but I’m loving reading more of what I actually want. Reading for pleasure gives me so much joy and it’s good for my soul for so many reasons.
Uplifting – Recently, I read Victoria Walters Random Acts Of Kindness and Heidi Swain’s Sunshine and Sweet Peas in Nightingale Square. Both books left me feeling positive and uplifted – like I could do anything. They have also inspired me to be kinder to myself and to keep my dreams in focus.
Self-Development – Whether it’s an actual self-help book like Katie Piper’s Confidence the Secret or You are a Badass by Jen Sincero. There are also other books that inspire and motivate me – I have mentioned a few above. Miranda Dickinson and Paige Toon also make me feel like I’m invincible and I love them both for it.
So that’s my #SixForSunday I would love to know what your reasons are?? I really enjoyed this meme so keep checking back as there will be more.
