I treated myself to a solo holiday at the end of February/beginning of March. I spent a few nights in Vienna, Bratislava, and Budapest. Even though my current financial situation really did not allow it, I spent a whole lot of money on six new books.
It’s part of my routine whenever I go somewhere new. I always come back with a new fridge magnet and a new book. This time, I just took it a little further. In fact, I didn’t even buy two each place, as the maths would suggest. I picked up two in Vienna, three in Bratislava, and one in Budapest.

One spark will light up both their lives
Alice is settling down. It might not be the adventurous life she once imagined, but more than anything she wants to make everyone happy – her steady boyfriend, her over-protective mother – even if it means a little part of her will always feel stifled.
Max is shaking things up. After a devastating injury, he is determined to prove himself. To find the man beyond the disability, to escape his smothering family and go on an adventure.
Reading is absolutely my favourite pastime, and I love to catch a couple of pages at any opportunity. It calms me after a long day in work. It settles me if my mind is racing. And, best of all, it helps distract me from a world around me that is literally on fire.
