Dear dear anon, you are incredibly kind but I can assure you that your soul beholds more splendour than mine. xox
I have been reading Tess of the D’Urbervilles (by Thomas Hardy) and The Book of Lost Things (John Connolly). I have been listening to ballet scores of late - Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker and Swan Lake, perhaps I am unintentionally reminiscing of my childhood (which seems to be rapidly diminishing) or perhaps I am listening to classic music because certain prevailing lyrics hit too close to my thoughts (I’ve written a list of my usual preferences here ). Scents - violets, the smell of rain on paving stones (I cannot quite describe it). As for tastes - butterscotch fudge, freshly picked strawberries and raspberries, a very warm cup of tea (yet not too hot to burn lips). I spend my free time reading (always always carries a book), scrawling words and little drawings which I then throw away, sometimes I bestow my thoughts to decipher my existence but I end up with nothing more than a headache. I wish you a very good Thursday, anon, and I hope my answers have been sufficient. xox
Well I have just finished The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly which I highly recommend. I am fond of The Bell Jar (Sylvia Plath), We Have Always Lived in the Castle (Shirley Jackson), Atomenent (Ian McEwan), Tamar (Mal Peet), Rebecca (Daphne du Maurier) and countless others.
I hope this very little list has satisfied you, anon, if your literary tastes have any similarities to mine. xox
Oh thank you, dear. Your tumblr is wonderful and I think I shall go on a reblogging spree! Thank you. xox
P.S. I have just read ‘A Single Drop of Honey’ and you are a truly magnificent writer (I too have often wished to be in possession of a roll top, claw-foot bath).
