30 Day Challenge


It’s Monday morning again..how does the week go so quickly! I do not know! Anyway I am reaching the end of this challenge and it’s going to be odd not writing this every morning, however I think I should just be proud of actually finishing it without being too difficult about the questions!

So, today, the question is, ‘the book that changed your opinion about something and I think it would have to be, ‘Eat, pray, love. By Elizabeth Gilbert.’ Before someone asks no the film did not stand up to the brilliance of the book and I will not be watching it again! However the book is a stunner and it taught me that no matter what I’m doing in my life, how stressed I am, how panicked I am about an essay or an exam, I know that that is not the only path I could take.

I know that a lot of people hated the book and I’m not sure why! I read it  a couple of bursts but overall I really enjoyed it and would recommend it highly. However it wasn’t the writing I enjoyed the most but the stance; it’s all about asking the simple question, “what do I want.” At the moment that is finishing my degree and getting a good mark but in a couple of months that could change to backpacking around Thailand with a one way ticket. This book only showed me that it is possible…oh and to worry less.

    I’m probably one of the few who liked the book AND the film… the book was better though, of course!! However I did have to skip a couple of the “pray” chapters… they got a bit much for me! Yawn!!

    Counting the days until I can go back to paradise… ahem, I mean, Thailand 😉

    Ooh, ps – I searched on your blog for The Bell Jar and I see you haven’t reviewed it yet. Don’t know if it’s your kind of thing, but it certainly made me think a lot. There are some cracking quotes in that book too!
