Special Delivery

I wasn't planning on blogging today actually, but something came in the mail that made me change my mind, I could not, not blog.
So before I say anything, let me say this first,
I feel incredibly blessed, special, undeserving even but I'm all smiles now, I haven't stopped smiling since I got this.

I was already having a wonderful day thanks in most part to someone I love very much who's having a sleepover at this lil eating disordered gal's place. I wish I could say more but not yet. Then came the cherry on top of the sundae (mmm never mind..)

So to the wonderful, amazing, beautiful blogger désespérée de maigrir ,
THANK YOU sooo much for my Book!
I'm so happy, you just have no idea.
I wish I could bottle how I feel right now and share it with you all.

I can't wait to read this.
I'm still reading "We need to talk about Kevin" by Lionel Shriver, I'm almost done, I love this book, please read if you can, it's riveting, especially from a parents perspective, you know I should actually do more book reviews, whatcha ya think??
Turn some of you on to reading lol. I had a half ass attempt once with a Vlog I did on some of my favorites..

So when I'm done with Kevin, I'm reading this bugger immediately. I can't wait.
The Dark Tower series are my favorite books of all time, second would be the Dune saga.
The Dune saga books I lost a long time ago when I was homeless, I wouldn't mind aquiring the whole series again and reading them all, I get the best memories from them.
Back to The Dark Tower, it's a great read and I can't wait to see what Roland and his ka-tet are up too. These characters are beloved to me and I feel like part of their little group, with them on their quest to seek The Dark Tower.
I actually found this series by accident one day.
I was browsing a thrift store and came upon this book titled "The WasteLands" something told me to get it.

At the time I was a 22yr old Lou working as a Secretary at a shipping agency and had a lot of time to kill between clients, I read at my desk in my spare time.

22yr old Lou

I read The WasteLands in 3days, the ending of the book of course was a cliffhanger, I had no idea of the vast Universe that is TDT series..
I'm glad I found it because it drew me in and consumed me.
I'm so happy and blessed that some wonderful person out there has gone above and beyond to get me the continuation of the series, and a day before it actually comes out worldwide no less.
I can't thank you enough, you're a truly wonderful person for getting me this book.
So now I leave you all and will finish the current read and make way for this new one.
I'm so happy today.
Thank you once again and I'll let you all know how it goes.
Take care everyone and goodnight.
Hugs and Kisses to you all, please be safe.

OH I forgot to tell you and your friend who gets you all the books thanks! cuz I got that book "The Search For Delicious" after I saw that on your blog..... wait, did I already say thanks for that? anyway, thanks. AND I'm trying to get ready to read (listen to) Dune, then we have a bunch of audio's of some of the other books from the library. I keep listening to The Game of Thrones series over and over again and I'm on the second--because it's the second season on HBO so i have to finish that. AND I'm also reading (not listening) to The Year Of The Flood by Margaret Atwood.

Anyhoo. I got a surprise in the mail today too!! From Peri :-) I LOVE this fun penpal stuff we got going on from blogger *kissy*

I was so happy to read your post this morning, because I had the opposite of your day... truly an awful day yesterday and I dreaded waking up today and being sad all over again - but this, made me feel a little bit better.

I hope you enjoy it when you finish "We Need to Talk About Kevin" and I sent two other books in the package with the school supplies and other stuff for your daughter.

My favorite author is Paul Coelho - have you ever read any of his books? The Alchemist changed my life.

Big hugs, Lulu, I'm so glad I could bring you a little happiness. <3

aww I'm so happy for you Lou!
You're such an avid reader and i've seen your vlog and have gotten all the books you mentioned.
You should do more post about books too that would be great, sometimes I have no idea what to read but the way you talk about books would make anyone pick up reading.
Take care and you look beautiful when you're really happy, hope you stay smiling all the time.
