Just one person choosing to pick up a book and get on board the reading for pleasure train is the start of a journey I can’t wait to go on

Staff said they were looking forward to visiting the staff room each day to see what books and treats were there and staff were choosing to read the extracts in their lunchtime – result!

I just want to write, I will write as I feel, as I see, as I hear, as I know and most importantly as I experience

I have a lot to tell. Pretty funny that I have just said that. For the longest time I believed that I had nothing interesting to say, that my life wasn’t as exciting as people thought. But I see that now, I have a pretty damn interesting life. From my childhood to my newly acquired adulthood. My stories will be both happy and sad. I’m looking forward to have you laugh with me, cry with me and hopefully encourage and give hope where I can as I tell my stories and document my life.

I do not know what to write about and I am not too sure still what I want to write about

Keywords: {0}

My name is Monika, but everyone calls me Mimii. I am a dance teacher. I like to read almost any type of book, I love binge-watching series and I have a special kind of admiration for children’s animations. I like to sing, although I am terrible at it. I like to be adventurous and spend time outdoors with my friends. I travel the world from time to time and love to immerse myself in the culture whenever I go to a new country. History, art, culture, the way people live and the food they eat are just fascinating.

The world needs all of the stories

Keywords: a writers life , connection , novel , publishing , storytelling , writer , writing

I need to write what comes to me. What fills my heart. What feels most natural. And I know that reading has always been the buoy to keep me afloat during any difficult time. It’s been an escape. It’s been a joy. It’s been a place to go to. A way to be someone else. A way to relax and turn off if I need to. And I want to be those things for someone else. I want someone to pick my book up and sigh with relief. To feel comforted and at ease. And I know the way to do this is through the stories I have if I keep true to them. If I don’t let expectations or perceptions degrade them.

I want the pure experience of diving into the unknown and discovering everything for myself

Keywords: books , writing , book reviews

So, from now on there will be no more posts of book reviews. Now, I’ll still do a recap of what I’ve read (maybe monthly or quarterly instead of annually, I haven’t decided yet) and if a book greatly inspires me I may devote a post to it, but it’s likely it’ll be more of how it made me feel, what it made me think, and how it changed me.
