Hey, little girl, comb your hair, fix your make-up

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usYesterday I finished the first part of the Belfast trilogy by Sharon Owens, "The tea house on Mulberry Street". It's a "collection" (in lack of better words) of stories about a handful of very different people, who have one (ok, two) thing(s) in common - the tea house Muldoon's (and troubles with love). One of them is a young artist who writes love letters to Nicolas Cage, whom she is completely infatuated with, and she is convinced that her ordinary name is the reason why nobody is buying her paintings. Another character is Aurora, who loves books by Brontë and to dress up like she was living in a Brontë novel.
It's a feel good book, very cosy (if a book can be cosy?), it reminded me a lot of Love Actually (the movie - haven't read the book). Definitely recommendable if you need an easily read feel good book. And as a bonus a recipe for cheesecake (they eat a lot of cheesecake in this book) is included on one of the last pages, if you fancy some cake after reading.

I still have a lot to catch up on after my days without internet, but hopefully I'll get time to catch up in the weekend.
Here's a little piece of music to start off the weekend. My favourite part is the beginning, so good. Have a nice weekend!
