I think I am probably not the only one who started squealing as soon as the amazing library, full of books and lovely staircases, in Disney's Beauty and the Beast appeared on my screen for the first time. I remember it clearly; I was still a little girl and already knew with 100% certainty that one day, one way or another, I would walk around one of those libraries and read all the books I could find there. Now, older and perhaps even more in love with books and libraries than I was back then, I have put things in perspective. I know I will probably never have my own personal library with lovely staircases to climb (…unless I somehow bump into a multi-billionaire prince who loves me so much he will build me my own library, who knows?). But, thank god I live in the era of the Internet, which offers me the opportunity to start my own personal library online. Even though I can't actually physically touch this library, and I can't really add any lovely staircases, I'd like to think of this blog as my little corner on the Internet where I can share all my reading experiences with my readers (which will hopefully come and join me someday... Cupcakes for everyone?), and also a place that I can see as my own library, filled with reviews and stories of amazing, and perhaps not so amazing, books... Something which I can look back at in a couple of years, remembering why exactly books were, and hopefully still are at that time, such an important part of my world.
The title of this blog, A Spoonful of Happy Endings, captures my passion for books in a couple of words. I’m a devoted fan of everything chick lit (especially if it has a happy ending), but I also love the classics (the ‘spoonful’ of course refers to the classic children’s story of Mary Poppins), with a special place in my heart for anything even slightly linked to Jane Austen. Yet, as a person with a love for books in general, I’m open to (almost) anything. I can accept the occasional unhappy ending, if the story is good!
