:: 30 ::

I don’t turn 30 until next year but I am so excited for that year. It’s going to be epic! I am so pumped for 30 that I wrote a poem today in eager anticipation ☺️. I think I feel bad for 30. Everyone is afraid of it. So I’ve decided to embrace it, and count down to it. This is me giving 30 some love.

  

Bella’s Bookshelf 3 | The Very Thought of You

I see your face in every flower,

Your eyes in stars above,

It’s just the thought of you,

The very thought of you, my love…

Ahh such words have ben sung by the genius that is Nat King Cole.

I wish I could recommend this book for CXC Literature students. The poetry, imagery, and character complexity are just yearning to be analyzed. This is an excellent, pseudo-fictitious account of WWII events. The juxtaposition of thoughts and characters is presented beautifully. Simple writing & complex characters. Melancholic & sensual events. Hitler brutality & English kindness. War & Love through the eyes of an 8-year old Brit. Love. All kinds of love. Parental, mentor, marital, love affairs….I am impressed that this is the first novel by Rosie Alison. What a woman! =)

 If your love language is Words of Affirmation, you’ll love this book. There are some love letters written here that will make you all-sorts-of-swoon.

For what it’s worth, I wanted to tell you that I love you. Never before has anyone touched me so deeply – you have changed my life and I cherish everything about you….I have never loved a face more than I love yours, and I see it everywhere. Everything that moves reminds me of you.

I give this book a 5/5. I’ll definitely read again one day. Bella’s Bookshelf is happy for this new addition =)
