Book Recommendation

Hey everyone!

Sorry I haven’t written anything in a while. I’m actually kinda uninspired right now, not to mention all my usual excuses- school, sports, etc. I should have a review and EOTD up next week though!

However, today’s post isn’t makeup related- it’s actually a book recommendation! I haven’t done much reading this year, but I read this particular book over Labor Day weekend. It’s Ophelia, by Lisa Klein, and yes, it is based on Hamlet, which happens to be my fave Shakespeare play. 

This book tells the events of Hamlet from Ophelia’s point of view- what happened before and after the tragedy. I won’t tell you too much, but in it she doesn’t end up like she does in the play… I like this book because it gives more depth to Ophelia who doesn’t really get a whole lot of attention in the play, and you can really empathize with her more.

If you like historical fiction or retellings of classics, then this is for you! Also, in the comments, let me know if you like book recommendations, or if I should stick to makeup!

Have you read any good books lately? Does this interest you? Let me know!

  2. First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

    I've had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Appreciate it!

  3. Hey there! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website like yours require a large amount of work?

    daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
