Musing Mondays (04.05. 2015)

Friday was the 1st of May, and at least in Norway that is a national holiday. Everybody has the day off, and it is the perfect day to enjoy a book outside in the warmth of the sun. I hear you are supposed to wave a flag and march for your rights as a worker, but as I am a student still, I opted for a book instead.

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

Musing Monday

  • I’m currently reading…
  • Up next I think I’ll read…
  • I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
  • I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I can’t wait to get a copy of…
  • I wish I could read ___, but…
  • I blogged about ____ this past week…

I have done woefully little reading and searching for books lately, mostly due to my final paper being due tomorrow. On that note, I have found a lifesaver for stressed out students and anyone else who needs to disconnect for a few precious moments.

The Secret Garden colouring book, by Johanna Bashford!

This book is so perfect for relaxing and putting your mind back together after a long day, and it gives your eyes a rest from all the screens you’re constantly surrounding yourself with. The Secret Garden by Frances H. Burnett is one of my favourite books of all times, and I love how this colouring book is inspired by it. I’m combining the colouring with listening to an audiobook.

The meme is hosted by A Daily Rhythm, so you should stop by if you want to see more Monday Musings today.

    Oh my goodness! What a beautiful book! I’m definitely going to have to add it. I’ve done some of the mandala books before but I like the idea of having a floral based book.

      I love it! It’s so relaxing, and much more fun than the mandala books because you have landscapes and stuff as well. And it’s based on The Secret Garden, I have loved that children’s book since I was 12 years old. Fittingly, I fell in love with it as I listened to it on tape ^_^
