Sometimes I feel like I have a huge duty to share with you all the latest raw-related material .. and then I realize, how boring is that? Of course I’m obsessed with this lifestyle and I could read endless books regarding the diet but at the same time I have to give my creativity room to flourish as well. my favorite way to do this is by reading fiction books that have a flare for romanticism.
I’m a girl. What can I say?
Don’t you fret, though, I have plenty of books that are directly related to this raw lifestyle as well as the spiritual aspect of a wholesome and pure life. It happens. But today I have to be completely honest and share with you one of my favorite indulgences.
Speaking of indulgences, I also tend to indulge in some Ally McBeal whenever I’m feeling especially girly but that is neither here nor there and a little bit less respectable than a good old-fashioned book. Again, I’m a girl. What can I say? I love the McBeal.
This book that I’m reading now is by one of my (many) favorite authors, Cecelia Ahern. I discovered her way back in high school and so I think I just have a loyal dedication to her for that very reason. Other than that, I love her writing style. It’s refreshing, descriptive and incredibly creative. Most of her novels are so heavily based in fantasy that it feels good to be transported into something somewhere else.
This is the latest of her books and so I’ve only just begun, but I can say with complete confidence that I’ve loved every single one of her books. They aren’t as challenging, emotionally or intellectually, say, as some of my other favorites (like White Oleander
or Tipping the Velvet
) but her writing is intelligent nonetheless with a beautiful flare for description.
Is she girly? Yup. Is she popular. Maybe, I don’t know, I don’t keep up with the “latest”. Is her writing simple? Mostly. Even still, she writes in a way that makes it easy to disappear into a distant land all the while without soiling your precious neurons with dumbed down writing and raunchy plot lines.
Some of her other books that I’ve read are below. I’d really recommend any of them, not just the one I’m currently reading.
