WOTS HOT TO READ RIGHT NOW
Imagine growing up in a house absolutely filled with books. I'm talking floor to ceiling, cabinets filled with paperbacks and hardcovers on every topic imaginable from WAR to FAIRY TALES & EVERYTHING in-between.....
Thanks to my dad, my life growing up was rich with the words and thoughts of many a great writer... and some not so good ones. To this day, after a visit at mum & dads, I return home loaded up with brand new novels to pick through. Dad and I have very different tastes in literature, however, I think it is really important to broaden my reading horizons. I now have an appreciation for crime novels, mysteries and wartime themes.... but have my own style too.
Over the years I have enjoyed the Eckhart Tolle (Power of Now), Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat Pray Love), Mitch Albom (The Five people You Meet In Heaven) self reflection styles, EL James (need I say more? Hint:50), Proust for the intellectual aspect and re-read my all time favourite classics JD Salinger (Catcher in the Rye) and F.Scott Fitzgerald (The Great Gatsby). Trashy summertime books are an absolute MUST during the holidays. Another interest is biographies such as Ava Gardiner, Vidal Sassoon and a recent one Kyle Sandilands.
My latest purchase has me very excited. The cover itself entranced me.... I just know I'm going to be transported into a world of glamour, secrets and fashion....
Z A NOVEL OF ZELDA FITZGERALD
The blurb at the back got to me too. "A novel of a woman dubbed "The First Flapper"- Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, wife and muse to F. Scott Fitzgerald. Set against the glamorous backdrop of the Roaring Twenties, Z is the story of the woman who lived large and ached to find her own identity in the shadow of her celebrated husband."
I LOVE Zelda already.... in my romantic haze of anticipation for reading this book I told Mr G that I most definitely MUST HAVE BEEN HIS MUSE OVER THE YEARS.... as every artist needs inspiration from somewhere.
HIS REPLY : "YES HONEY.... YOU HAVE BEEN VERY A-MUSING TO ME ALL THESE YEARS".
