I’ve decided I want to share more about books and my reading choices on this blog. January has been fairly uneventful, and although it is usually in months like these that I read the most, this month I haven’t been reading as much as I would have liked to. That having been said, I did manage to read three books.
This book simply brings back so many memories for me; it made me truly fall in love with horses. As a young girl, I could relate really relate to the main character, Maria. Rereading it, I noticed how strangely poetic it is, this is definitely a book I will cherish and one day hand down to my daughter.
I admittedly read this just yesterday, but I was so glad that I did. It was originally written in German, and the story follows a man’s life growing up in the mountains. I found it quite heartbreaking at times but yet extremely heartwarming.
I feel like I have to justify myself for reading this. It is admittedly not very intellectually stimulating, but I think my guilty pleasure in the literary world is Sherlock Holmes. What with the (brief :(!) return of the BBC’s Sherlock, I am afraid to say I have plummeted back into the world of Holmes and Watson!
Now you’ve heard about my recent reads, make sure to tell me yours!
