Sure, if you think you’re tough enough, heart of stone and all that jazz, then be our guest: Read this book without any assistance.
Be warned, however, that Lisa Heathfield’s ‘Paper Butterflies’ will hit you right in the feels. Hard. So it can’t hurt to be prepared, right? Just in case that heart of stone cracks…
Here’s a few essential we think you might make use of while reading this book:
1. Tissues. Trust, this is probably the most single important thing here. You’ll be needing ’em. *sniffles*
2. Tea (plus fave mug). Because nothing soothes the soul like a mug of tea, eh?
3. A squishy blanket. Sure, it may be too warm right now, but all these feels will make you feel cold. Cold to the very bone.
4. Biscuits of choice. Chocolate is a bonus. #comfortfood
5. Bookmarks. Plural. To save all the pages you might want to quote later. Because this is one book with much superior quotation action.
Other things you might want close to hand include; your phone. So you can tweet/text your book BFF. Work through the pain together.
A notebook to jot down all the things you might want to remember later for blogging or whatever.
A killer music playlist. Either to lift you up, or to suit your crushed heart. There’s no harm in wallowing a little (just throw in a few upbeat songs near the end, eh? Finish on a high).
