Spring is in the air. Well, sort of. It's kind of cold, but we won't let stop us, will we? We can always snuggle with a nice book. Speaking of which, this is the book I'm reading at the moment. All the Kings's Men by Robert Penn Warren. Published in 1964, it is considered a classic. Warren even got a Pulitzer for this novel. So far, this novel didn't disappoint me. It talks about a rise of a politician Willie, but the story itself is told from a perspective of Jack, who works for Willie. The narrative pattern resembles that of The Great Gatsby. I do like the way this book is written. The style of writing makes me think of Faulkner. I haven't finished it yet, so I can't give you a recommendation or anything like that. Are you reading anything at the moment? I have to level with you and say that I haven't done as nearly as much reading this month as I usually do. I could say it is because I had a lot of medical exams, but that would be just an excuse. The truth is that I'm having troubles concentrating on reading, something that doesn't usually happen to me, no matter how hectic things might get. So, I think my slower reading pace has nothing to do with whatever has been going on in my life. Maybe I'm just going through a reader burnout. I've read so many books in January and February, it's really no wonder. Do you ever get a reader's burnout?
Hello there! I'm Ivana and I'm a coffeeholic. I'm not so much addicted to caffeine as to coffee as such. I mean I love caffeine (who doesn't) but I can do without it and if I must, I'll drink decaf. I love coffee in all shapes and forms. I love drinking coffee and I like eating sweets and cakes that contain coffee. Sometimes I make cakes with coffee. Having a cup of coffee in my hand and a book by my side is pretty much my idea of happiness. Enough about my coffee addiction. Besides talking about what I'm reading at the moment, I'll also show you two outfits. I wore both of them on the same day, on eight of March. I wore the same skirt with both outfits. This skirt is one of my favourites ones. The combination of wool and silk makes it pretty unique. I don't think I have another skirt in my closet made from the same textile combination. I remember how surprised I was when I had seen the label. Wool and silk together? Interesting combination of textures, wouldn't you say? Speaking of texture, I'm still wearing my faux fur scarves. As long as it continues to be cold, I will continue to rely on them.
