New Year, new books await
Last night I had children organised for the return to school and was looking forward to returning to routine today. Alas, the blood sugar gods were not pleased and I was up all night battling high blood sugar with my son. His levels were in that worrisome range where going to the hospital might have been in the cards. So I did not trust myself to sleep between the hourly checks.
Thankfully, on my bedside table was this book, "Before I Go To Sleep" by S.J. Watson. It is a mystery romance combination that delves into the world of amnesia. A fitting title on a night that sleep was not possible, and a page-turning novel that kept me awake and alert on diabetes watch.
"Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Welcome to Christine's life. Interesting premise is it not?
This fast paced read has me hungry to start a new book. Once again I am reminded of how books have comforted and sustained me in a multitude of scenarios throughout my life.
The new year means many new titles to explore. What titles are you excited to have read or have on your to read list?
