    I recently finished The Lord of The Rings

    series. It has been two days since I finished and my heart literally aches because I didn't want the story to end. I have become attached to characters that don't exist and I will never meet but how I long to meet each one nonetheless. ..

    Oh yes. When I was little,

    I was lucky enough that my mum read to me regularly, and that's where the love of a good story began. I love reading to my daughter, and hope she'll also love the comfort and company of a good book throughout her life too.

    Cracking open a new novel is like venturing out

    into the world. New adventures, new characters to meet and enjoy and a new time and place to experience. A cozy reading spot and a cup of tea is all I need to go along with my next world that awaits.

    I am a huge fan of the Heros Of Olympus series!

    I love Greek Mythology, and how Rick Riorden incorporates the modern world into the ancient world. Blood of Olympus is the latest, and possibly the last installment of the series, and I'm actually kind of sad. You read these books, and become connected to these characters. You...

    Vonnegut And Nabokav

    My two favorites are Slapstick by Kurt Vonnegut and Lolita by Nabokav. Nabokav may not be spelled correctly because I don't have the book with me right at the moment. Go to Amazon.com and read the blurbs if you want some entertainment!

    I took world literature last semester

    and 2 of the 3 books I read we're TO DIE FOR! The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri and The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien. Both definitely worth the read. The other book I read (things fall apart) was also pretty good, but the others are definitely more read worthy!
