Yesterday evening, I met up with my friend and book buddy to discuss the latest book we had read together. We took our tea out onto the balcony and, once we had caught up a little, we began highlighting the things we had enjoyed in Roselle Lim’s book Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune.
As usual, the time we had together was too short and we did not get to finish highlighting all that we had enjoyed in the story. I am sure we will get back to this novel at our next meetup – or we may begin texting our thoughts!
As my friend was preparing to leave, we noticed the light in the sky which had been grey all day. The rays of light hinted at the blue sky behind the clouds – a blue which we hoped would shine through the next day.
