“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.” ― Anna Quindlen
Reading a book is a journey, you become a part of it and the journey becomes magical if it has a perfect partner. I have been providing a suitable partner to the books I have read recently, which turned out to be an awesome partnership. Books quench the thirst of your mind and the soul and the perfect drink with it, it is a cherry on top.
I have paired different drinks with different genres of books and got lost in the world of words. I am going to share a few of my favorite partners.
It is said that when life gives you lemons you turn it into lemonade, maybe that’s why it was suitable for the book “Becoming- by Michelle Obama”. In the book, Michelle Obama speaks about her journey divided into three chapters, she talks about her roots, how she found her own voice & her partnership with Barack Obama when he was her intern till he became the President of USA. This book awakens you and makes you believe that you are powerful and can change the world. One of my favorite quote from this book by her “You may live in the world as it is, but you can still work to create the world as it should be.”
Most of the people are a fan of this one. The bestseller epic fantasy novel by George R. R. Martin ” A Song of Ice and Fire”, the first book of this series was published in 1996, 5 volumes out of seven have already been published. I paired this book with one of the oldest and widely consumed drink, “Beer”. Beer allows you to relax and calm your mind, which is necessary to understand the high-level politics, strategies, in this ultimate book. The author combines realism with the magic which creates an ultimate historical fiction and you get more involved with the characters as you feel you are living their life with a glass of chilled beer in one hand 🙂
Whenever I read a romantic novel I prefer a vanilla drink, it allows me to get engrossed in the vivid romance. The book “50 shades of grey by E. l James” worked best with one of my favorite cocktail Mojito. The tingling taste of lime and freshness of mint, with white rum take you to another level of pleasure. like the drink, this erotic fiction book will make you keep all your thoughts away and be lost in this fascinating world of romance, as you finish the first book, you crave more for reading the next parts Fifty shades darker and fifty shades freed and once you finish reading, you may realize that true love is beyond all the materialistic things, it started as an erotic fantasy book but ended as a beautiful love story, and while reading it when you gaze at your mojito it must be saying ” sip me baby, again and again”.
” Coffee solves everything!!” like the saying I paired it up with the thriller novel “The midnight line ” by Lee Child , this is one of the brilliantly written novel of Jack Reacher series. As coffee stimulates your brain, making you more active and alert. I prefer it for thriller, suspense novels. it boosts your brain function and allows you to see things from the character’s perspective. The story revolves around one classy ring he happened to see and his journey to search for the ring owner, which unfolds the darker chain of crime, the book keeps you engaged with the characters. You would definitely require more cups of coffee with this genre.
These few combinations I have tried recently and really enjoyed every sip with every page. Life will turn out to be more amazing if you do things with a creative touch. There is a quote by Neil Gaiman ” A book is a dream that you hold in your hand”.
Keep unfolding your dreams & books will definitely help you to achieve it. Don’t forget to pair up with good drink 😉.
