When I saw this quote over on beautiful blog Love Audrey I knew it was going to be my pinterest pick for this week...it sums up my feelings about books perfectly. I love how a book can transport you to another world, time, place...and that is exactly how I have been feeling this week reading The Help by Katheryn Stockett. What was a little strange was that Audrey had also recommended The Help in her reading list...small world isn't it?
I'm sure most of you know of the story especially since the film adaptation came out...the tale of a small Mississippi town during 60's America that explores the racial divide that was so strong there at the time, all through the lives of three women, Aibileen, Minny and Skeeter. Now I really enjoyed the film, and it is what lead me to read the book, but I'm finding the book so much better! Either way I would definitely recommend the film or book version...
I hope you have a lovely weekend, it is meant to be an absolute scorcher here in the uk! So I will be in the garden with a cold drink and book in hand to be sure...enjoy! x
