My Dear Lucy . . .


In an effort to focus on and post about the little things this month, I thought I’d tell you about my saving grace last night.

You know there are some days when you get home from work and the last thing you want to do is talk to people. You’re not mad at anyone but you just have nothing to say and want to be left in peace for a few hours?

That was me yesterday.

As you can probably tell, I’m a bit of a bookworm and nothing makes me happier than a book that lets me escape the world for a few hours.

There’s something so calming about diving into a favorite, dog-eared book that you’ve read so many times, you could practically recite it from memory. It has the same feeling as coming home after being away for a long time.

For me, one of my very favorite escapes is to Narnia.

From the first page, I’m sucked into a world of far-away lands, talking animals, battles and evil witches. All the things a good story needs.

I have a nice copy on my bookshelf but when I need a good adventure, I always go for my beat up copy that’s perfect for curling up with, big mug of tea in hand (don’t worry I don’t treat all my books like this).

If you’ve never read The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, you’re sorely missing out.

A book written for a little girl but perfect for any age. It’s reads like a story being said out loud and gives you an incredible adventure where you don’t even have to leave the couch.

Only about 100 pages, it’s the perfect place to go to to escape your daily life for a short period of time.

Even if you’re not into adventure stories, you should get a copy just for the inscription.

I’s by far the best I’ve ever seen.

Tell me, what are your favorite, dog-eared books? Your go-to reads that you’ll never get sick of?

    How have I never read the inscription on that book?! I love the Narnia books, but haven’t read them since I was a kid. I definitely need to read them again! Also, the picture of you reading the book is so pretty! 🙂
