Welcome to the first challenge of the new year!!! The winner of this challenge will win two bars of handmade soap from Latherati (one inspired by the winning book and another of their choosing) as well as your choice of lip luster! On to the contest...
Abandoned books. Those books you start with the best of intentions, only to get to Chapter 2 and realize it's just not fitting to your mood at the moment. They are good books, great books even; you just need something a little lighter or maybe a little edgier.
You dog-ear page 53, close the cover and gingerly place it on your bookshelf, feeling a little bit of guilt and a touch of remorse. You eye the neighboring books on the shelf and realize that they, too, are of the abandoned book category. You tell them in a whisper that you will get back to them someday, you promise. When will that day come?
Well, for me, that day is coming soon! You, my dear reader, are going to convince me to finish one of my abandoned books! It's in your hands now...convince me which of these titles I should pick up off the shelf, dust its forlorn pages and delve into it with joy.
Are you up for it? Get ready, get set...convince me!
Should I read:
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
Jude the Obscure by Thomas Hardy
The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
There! These are the titles sadly sitting on my bookshelf, waiting for their spines to be cracked.
