Spring has finally shown her face in Toronto! Of course, we had a little snow last Saturday, but that didn’t stop people from stepping out and enjoying what little sun we had – I think I even saw a good number of people wearing shorts. You do you, Toronto. You do you.
But if I may make a recommendation, now is as good a time as any to relax for a little bit. I know that my fellow uni/college students are uber-stressed and in a bit of a time crunch, especially my brothers and sisters from York and UofT who were affected by the strike. As my co-workers continually remind me, though, “always make time for self-care.” So take a three-hour break, pick up the TFIOS book (or watch the movie, which was pretty good!) and settle in with a nice deep mug of hot chocolate. Don’t forget the whipped cream!
Here are this week’s Book Baubles:
1. The Fault In Our Stars, John Green
Let’s face it, if you haven’t yet heard of this book you were living under a rock. Or maybe you have heard about it, but don’t quite get what all the hype’s about. Either way, reading a book is good for your health – buy it here, and sink once again into the little infinity that Gus and Hazel shared, or critique the book and decide for yourself whether it deserved all the good reviews. Enjoy!
2. A racerback tank, because we’re hopeful that summer is just around the corner!
Feeling that summer-yearning really bad? Buy this tank (here) and layer it with a cardigan while we wait for the weather to hit the positive double digits! Summer’s almost here, guys!
3. A necklace, because I love necklaces. This one is handmade by Krysten Sherwood.
Get this necklace here for that John Green fan in your life whose birthday is coming up soon!
Bonus drink recommendation: Green Tea Latte! I love the ones from Second Cup – it’s the perfect treat drink, and would go so well with this book. Make like a person who has all the spare time in the world, grab TFIOS (or any other book you’ve been meaning to get into, really), head out to your neighbourhood coffee shop, and settle in for a good long read with a latte.
