Baby got broken back
So I woke up this morning and the first thing that happened was that the joints in my back decided to lock in a protest against laying in one position for 4 hours of reading the night before.. So the good news is that I have time off from work to finally do the stuff I never have time for. The bad news is that it hurts like a mother, and I have to lay still and take medication that makes me fall asleep almost before I put them in my mouth.. Thank God for the invention of reading materials
Speaking of which — I’ve just finished reading The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I really did love it, and it is by far one of the best books I have read, but I also felt an enormous load lifted off my shoulders when finished..
The story intervenes with the districts and some of the characters from the book The Shadow of the Wind (also written by Señor Zafon). The Angel’s Game, contrary to The Shadow of the Wind, is supernatural and quite hard to swallow.. It absorbs you to the point of depression and captivates you completely in the universe that is a dark and sombre Barcelona filled with secrets, traitors and pencil mustache lovers.. It is written to the point of perfection and I think there are few books that fit the term “page-turner” better..
“Just with ink and paper you can create stories and worlds and universes.” – Zafon
“Books are mirrors: you only see in them what you already have inside you.” – Zafon
“Poetry is written with tears, fiction with blood, and history with invisible ink.” – Zafon
So anyways — Now I can find time to enjoy myself and relax, and not worry that a certain gentleman with the initials A.C is waiting for me around every corner.. I feel good again, and I’m finally ready for Christmas to come! :)
Best apple muffins ever!
Dried apples for decoration :)
