Books throughout Belfast, Northern Ireland

I am on vacation from August 10 – 19th and can finally check Paris off my bucket list! I am enjoying my time away, but wanted to pop in quickly and share a few photos from my time in Northern Ireland. 

Prior to heading out on holiday, I was working in my Belfast office for the week. I packed way too many books, so I decided to take them with me around town and share a few spots I hit up during my stay. I used the hashtag #booksthroughoutbelfast on Instagram to chronicle my week.

Seven days in Belfast and I finished Tied to Deceit by Neena H. Brar, Exit West by Mohsin Hamid, and started An American Marriage by Tayari Jones. I may not get to all the books I packed but they enjoyed traveling throughout Belfast with me. What was not enjoyable was that they definitely weighed down my suitcase – but its what we do for the love of books, right?! Enjoy!

Who can I talk about this with? (obviously I will not discuss it here – not going to spoil anything for you) For my suspense fans, you need to read this. Read More »
