I’m having one of those days (weeks, actually) where all I want to do is crawl inside a book and live there. Or just go to some remote, beautiful location and read good books and drink cocktails all day.
The above book is one of my frequent rereads. I can’t recall ever reading an epistolary novel before, and to be honest a novel written in letters didn’t exactly appeal to me at first. But The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society is just so beautifully done. If you haven’t read it, do so. Now.
I’m experimenting with the epistolary form by writing my current work-in-progress in journal entries. I reread Guernsey, as well as The Perks of Being a Wallflower (more on that beautiful book later) for inspiration, and they both helped quite a bit. I’m not sure how this current one is going to end up. I’ll let you know in a few months!
