What’s been on your mind, this week? I’ve been reading A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, after putting it off for months and months because I knew it was going to be upsetting; and I feel like I’ve been in a little bubble of fiction all week. I’ve almost come to the end (it’s 736 pages!), and I’m so pleased I finally made the time to read it. It’s such a powerful novel!
I’ve been determined to finish A Little Life within the space of a week, because I’m off to Menorca later this weekend, and it’s definitely not feel-good holiday reading. I won’t be posting to the blog next week, while I’m away, but I’ll still be sharing updates on Instagram So make sure you’re following @cocosteaparty!
Have a lovely weekend, and I’ll see you when I’m back…
