To Be Read
A Mid-Winter Guilt-Free Book Haul
To Be Read is a column where I share the books, threads, and other thing I can’t wait to get into but haven’t read just yet. Check it out below.
For Valentine’s Day this year I bought myself books. They arrived at my door a few days ago, all in one craft colored box. As a person who loves gifts, the sense of wonder found in an unopened package still thrills me. Sometimes I ignore the return sender name and address to maintain that element of surprise. I have zero regrets when it comes to buying books, it’s a guilt free online shopping
addiction habit. These latest releases are exciting additions to my library. One-by-one as I pulled them out of the box they looked so romantic, their covers and book jackets with varying romantic designs. Hearts, flowers, glowing eyes glowing right into the camera, big colorful text and soft renderings of a femme body. They felt as warm and soft as I felt when I bought them that morning.
Have you heard of or read any of these titles? What books have you recently brought in, and do you plan on reading them right away - or just posing them on a shelf in your friend’s apartment while having cocktails while it hails outside? Which book should I read first?
