a book.... in review

'interpreter of maladies' by jhumpa lahiri

i really enjoyed this book because of the colorful nature of both the writing itself and the descriptions of each person and location depicted. a group of short stories introduce you to a number of characters, ordinary people you may meet throughout the seasons of your life, and when you are done you almost feel as if you have met them yourself. the people are real, they feel what you feel, and think what you think, they are living their life, just as you are living yours. the stories are worth getting into bed with, or spending a lazy afternoon with... 


i found myself not able to put it down, and wishing for endless amounts of hours to dedicate solely to losing myself in the pages of a good book. one after another, to be precise! i daydreamed of rainy days, a handmade lap quilt, a comfy sofa, my current book, and a cup of seasonally-flavored coffee. what a perfect way to waste away the hours of the day! if you are in the mood for a colorful book of interesting stories, check it out. it might be just what you are looking for. 


happy page-turning! i'm off to find another good book to read!
