Cheryl Strayed promised me in “Tiny Beautiful Things” that all the wasted days would add up to something.
And they are beginning to.
As is all the time spent “wasted” reading – something I’ve always felt vaguely guilty about.
I hadn’t read a book in a couple of weeks (unheard of really in my world 😉
So on Friday evening I snuggled down and read Sarah Wilsons latest book “First We Make the Beast Beautiful”
As I had purchased the book (on IBooks) a small voice had whispered “what would someone so accomplished know about anxiety?”
Turns out a lot.
Turns out the book resonates with my own experiences with the anxiety beast so eerily that sometimes I wondered if she had been walking in my skin
Or me in hers
Whatever the case, the book is a well written, raw and honest (and very brave) account of Sarah’s personal experiences.
It is – I believe – an important book and I hope that both men and women in reading it, don’t feel so alone in their own struggles anymore for it is a book that reaches out.
It is a book that touches and heals.
It is a book well worth your time and one that certainly won’t waste it.
If I hadn’t read the books I have read I would be…
Not me – and I rather like me these days so that would be a pity.
So if you are ever snuggled down feeling vaguely guilty with a book – don’t – just don’t – because books are never
A waste of time.
