Reading by candlelight is my activity of choice when looking to relax and unwind after a long day. Add a cup of caffeine free tea (rooibos is my fave) and the experience is absolute perfection.
I prefer to use this time to read books that go with the chill and stress free vibe so mysteries and thrillers are out (those are reserved for daytime reading), and anything that promises not to raise my pulse is definitely in.
My current bedtime book of choice is Victoria and Abdul: The True Story of the Queen’s Closest Confidant. You have probably all seen the previews for this movie, and may not have known it is based on a true story. This very well researched book is an eye opening look at the relationship between Queen Victoria and her Munshi (teacher). To be honest it is a relationship I had never even known existed. I highly recommended this book to all of the history buffs out there. Heart racing it is not, but chances are you will walk away having learned a thing or two!
