So I’m in Santorini!
And I’m absolutely loving life.
We’re staying in Kamari and for the most part is very chilled and laid back which is just what I needed in my life. Whilst we have been exploring the island, we have also been doing a lot of sitting by the pool and reading. I mean that is what a holiday is about, right? Finding the balance between getting enough relaxation in and seeing all the sights you wouldn’t get to see back home. That is unless you’re blessed to live in such a beautiful place.
I feel like we’ve the right balance so far. We went on a boat trip, walked a volcano in sandals and walked over 200 (very steep) steps to visit Oia for the sunset.
I absolutely love holiday reading. Unlike reading in day to day life, you feel no pressure to stop as you have nothing else to do unless you to choose otherwise. No work, no housework, no dogs jumping on you for attention. There is no little voice in your head telling that you have a million things that actually need doing.
I’ve gotten through quite a few books on my kindle already, and I’ll probably get through a few more before it’s time to leave (I never want to leave!). I read through a few books that were okay, and then I was flicking through the store and I realised that the third book in Suzanne Wright’s The Dark In You series had been released! I am a big fan of Suzanne Wright’s paranormal/ fanatasy series. The characters are very well established and the presence of otherworldly beings in the world we know it today do not seem out of place. Ashes is the title of the third book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It follows the main characters, Harper and Knox as they figure out how to deal with various attack and life events.
Ashes was brilliant so I tried the first book in her Deep In Your Veins series. As you’ve probably guessed this is about vampires. I’m on the third book now and really enjoying it! Maybe it’s something to do with the fact the main character is British, it’s quite refreshing to see some English slang and phrases make an appearance. So whilst again the series deals with the paranormal, there is still a distinct connection with the real world which I enjoy.
Hope everyone is enjoying themselves as much as I have been this past week. Feel welcome to share some of your favourite holiday reads and destinations!
Thanks for reading,
