I think i’ve become somewhat of an expert when it comes to the summer commute. Rucksack, packed lightly, so I’m not battling on the tube. I’ve managed to become a platform genius by memorising the sweet standing spot (I’ve got a seat every day this week, do you know what that means?). Since the 20th of May I haven’t been late to work, anyone who hasn’t been late since the timetable changes needs a reward? or compensation? Yes, I did just say compensation.. for being on time.
Something light and quick, for the hot commutes we’ve been having here in London the past few months. If I can remember correctly, I literally read this in a day and a half. It’s a superrrr easy read and not heavy in terms of character and plot. You can keep up with everything and everyone without having to flick back and remind yourself who’s who. Two important things to note; it’s a romance… and yes it’s better then the film, obviously.
My Current read, and honestly I’m enjoying not putting it down. It’s been met with mixed reviews, I think you either love it or hate it. Regardless, you would have definitely seen this gold and green number because it’s won a number of awards. Including Waterstone’s book of the year back in 2016. I won’t give any spoilers as I’m yet to finish it myself but I’m enjoying trying to work out the messages and what direction it will take.
This book has been on my radar for absolutely ages, in fact I thought I had it. Turns out theres honestly about a thousand different titles that followed, and typically I purchased the wrong one. I will get round to grabbing the right one, but to see if this book is up your street google the 5 love languages test! It’s quick and easy, you just have to answer a few love related Qs; from your answers you can find out your two love languages: how you show and feel love, and more importanylu what that means to you & your relationships.
I loved the film, so i’m interested to see how my imagination interprets the story against our beloved Will Smith. By the end of it I’ll probably have a whole new vision of the characters and settings. To be honest it’s probably better suited for the winter commute, 2 hours of daylight goes hand in hand with a plot of the non-living and human extinction. By the time I get through my ‘to read’ list it probably will be!
I love seeing people take out their books and have a break from technology and their phones. If you have any of your own recommendations feel free to share plus your current commute reads!
