Sundays in bed with is a meme that was originally hosted by Midnight Book Girl. It is simply a chance to share the book that is by your bed at the moment (or that you wish was by your bed). This week the book by my bed (or on the arm of my sofa) is My Kind of Happy by Cathy Bramley
I only discovered Cathy Bramley a couple of years ago when I picked a book of hers up at the library. I really enjoy her novels so was pleased to spot this one on the library shelf yesterday.
Blurb from the book:
‘I think flowers are sunshine for the soul.’
Flowers have always made Fearne smile. She treasures the memories of her beloved grandmother’s floristry and helping her to arrange beautiful blooms that brought such joy to their recipients.
But ever since a family tragedy a year ago, Fearne has been searching for her own contentment. When a chance discovery inspires her to start a happiness list, it seems that Fearne might just have found her answer…
Sometimes the scariest path can be the most rewarding. So is Fearne ready to take the risk and step into the unknown? And what kind of happiness might she find if she does?
Fearne is still grieving for her brother after his death several months ago but when she begins to clear out his room, she discovers an unsent letter from her brother to her. In the letter, he talks about how it is important to live your life doing what makes you happy and hopes that Fearne will do that. This makes her realise that she isn’t actually doing the things that make her happy and she isn’t really sure what needs to be on her happiness list.
I’m really enjoying the start of this. I like the idea of making a list of the things that make you happy and make sure that you include them in your life. I really like the character of Fearne and the dog, Scamp, who she is looking after for a neighbour is just gorgeous.
What’s by your bed this weekend?
