I always enjoy learning how other people bears with their own life, since there’s not exclusively one way to live, and that’s might be the main reason why I love reading autobiographic novels.
Last week, I finished reading “Wild” by Cheryl Strayed.
I enjoyed Cheryl’s adventure through the Pacific Coast Trail, all those thoughts and feelings she unravels with the challenges of every mile in the PCT.
Cheryl Strayed is a talented writer because, even though her life story is far from my own, she made me relate to hers and even feel like walking in her shoes.

I enjoyed this book and I’m certainly ready to watch the movie (huge fan of Reese Witherspoon here!).
Last, my #nowreading quote chosen from this book + design created for it:
Other memorable quotes from this book:
“I could only be who it seemed I had to be”
“What if I forgave myself? I thought. What if I forgave myself even though I’d done something I shouldn’t have? (…) What if what made me do all those things everyone thought I shouldn’t have done was what also had got me here? What if I was never redeemed? What if I already was?”
Have you seen the movie or read this book?
We just watched the movie- it was good but I’ve read some of her writing so I’m betting the book is amazing!
Yes, it’s more a story for a book than for a movie I thought when I started reading it. But, I’ll check it anyway! Finally (again, in my life post-kid) I can see a movie that I read first, I won’t miss the opportunity! 😛 xx
