Returning to the theme of books, I wanted to mention ‘Cup of Tea Books’.
I’m sure you know the ones I mean, the books you return to time and time again. For many people it is the classics such as Jane Eyre, for others it may be a favourite series.
Maeve Binchy will always be one of my favourites, I would also count Elizabeth Jane Howard and her Cazelet Chronicles. Perhaps there is a theme, they are all stories of families through the years. The characters develop over time to become like old friends.
When I need a book to chill out with then I’ll turn to one of these.
Sometimes I think these are ‘easy’ books to read as they often deal with everyday life but I am sure they were not easy to write! If I could write one story with characters you would like to ‘meet’ again then I’d be very happy!

My cup of tea book is The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I never tire of reading about Skeeter and her bravery in writing the book that mattered. Lovely post, Sareen.
Oh, a lovely book, Rae! Love the film too.
