When I went on holiday I fell into a bit of a reading slump. Corralling an enthusiastic toddler in an unusual environment is hard work, and then in the evenings and at nap times I had people to talk to, so no reading really took place.
Since coming home I’ve been trying to pick up again, and I need to do a bit of planning around reviews and whatnot.
So, what am I reading?
Intuitive Eating – I’ve had this for years and have read it before, but the time had come to return to it. Interestingly the last time I read it, I thought it was all a bit silly. One of those things where you get grumpy and mumble about it not being that easy. But in hindsight, I really wasn’t ready for it, and I’m finding it really helpful in my new world of anti dieting and body positivity.
Harry Potter – When the books were still coming out I got part way through, I think, book 6. There was a thing with Delores Umbridge that just really bothered me, I put down the book and never picked any of them up again. Last week I just really felt like it, so I started reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
The Little Bookshop of Lonely Hearts is my current bedtime book, and I’m really enjoying it so far!
