About reading

book-1149031_1280How often do you have time to read? I try to read as many books as I can, but my to-read-list is always full of new titles, new authors, classics I feel like I should have read by now… I wish I didn’t always have to choose between reading and writing – I need to do both, but writing will always be my first priority and afterwards I’ll give the pile of library books on the nightstand guilty looks because I’m too tired when I finally go to bed. But reading is so amazing. I’m always encouraging people around me to read and nothing makes me happier when someone actually listens and finds a book he/she likes.

Right now, I’m halfway through The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. Amsterdam, 17th century, secrets and mysteries, and stunningly beautiful writing. The kind of novel that wants me to give up even trying to write stories because compared to this book, anything I’ve written is… well. But it’s such a great novel and if you enjoy historical fiction, you should absolutely give it a try.
