Or, is it possible that my love of reading is coming back?
The song You’ve lost that lovin’ feelin’ (the one from Top Gun) keeps playing in my head when I think of books and perfumes. 🙂 I mean, it’s true, I did. (lose that loving feeling)
I’m not sure how (although I have my thoughts on that) but I did.
Well, hopefully it will slowly come back. I actually read the book from the title and I’m in the middle or reading another one.
I’m also using perfumes outside the 2 I kept in rotation. Baby steps. 😉
But to get back to the book.
I’m not going to go much into details. What struck me as a bit strange was the use of Abyssian’s powerful position to hurt Lila (psychologically) because he could and had the need to. Considering the atmosphere we live in now.
Ok, so he’s had a really tortured childhood and is not in the best psychological frame of mind to accept goodness but still, I couldn’t help but think of all the excuses made for such cases.
And before this turns into a critic, the story turned around and I felt happy with how Ms Cole resolved the whole situation. I love strong female characters (even when I can’t understand where they are coming from) and a good love story can’t hurt. 😉
Btw, when I say a good love story I mean, steamy sex scenes. 😉 There is a reason after all why these romance novels (of any kind) are so popular. 😀
Oh, and yes, there is a love story in there as well. 😉

As I was reading the post, in my head I was rotating the thought that I couldn’t imagine how I might ever loose interest in perfumes: I loved them from when I was 5… And then I realized that for decades I loved and read books… and then I stopped. I keep telling myself that I should start reading again, I plan, I even buy them… and then never touch them. So I do understand how one might stop loving something they used to but I hope that we both will find those lost pleasures – from reading a good book or finding that unicorn perfume.

That’s how I feel about it – lost pleasure. It’s not that I don’t love perfume and books, it’s just feels like I lost the feeling of pleasure in general so the things that brought it no longer do. I do feel like I’m slowly getting back into the pleasure groove. 🙂
