Cheers for the reply!
So you have a cat? what's his/her name?
My wee baby (cat) is called Sandy and she's 9. Not too well these days, as her kidneys are in the early stages of failing her, but she goes to the vet every 6 weeks for injections to boost her kidney function, and is responding well at the moment :)
She's such a talkative wee girl, and loves company, which is good because I'm at home a lot and she's great company :)
What are your fave reads these days? I read Scars while I was away on holiday, which is about a girl in therapy as memories of sexual abuse begin to resurface and she begins cutting to deal with her trauma. It stayed with me for quite a while after I read it, especially its ending which was realistic and I was glad the author resisted the urge to just make it a "happy-ever-after" conclusion.
I'm also reading a book about reptile smuggling - harrowing read but very interesting.
Hope to chat soon,
Hope it's ok to follow your shelf? I feel exactly as you do about books and for me, a book is pretty much a fail if it can't affect a response, particularly an ongoing emotional one.
Also, you might have a lot in common with one of my shelfari friends, Chanelle. She also studied Child Psychology :)
I'm a 45-yr-old Mum of 2 boys and I live in Christchurch, NZ, btw. Hope we'll be friends.
If readers are the smartest people what does that make the people that never pick up a book?
I have a vampire series you might like.
May your flowers always be in bloom.
