I love books. Reading about other people is way easier than facing life, and I wish I could live in one of those worlds without school, stress, and no problems with life. I spend a few hours everyday, but then I have to tear myself away from the book to finish my homework.

I Love Books - Books are the only way for me to escape life sometimes. It allows me to live in a fantasy world and allows me to forget whatever that is happening in reality.

At the moment I'm reading the running man by Stephen King (writing as Richard Bachman). I'm really liking it so far. I'm a fan of dystopian novels. Also I just love when king writes as Bachman. There's just an overall darker tone that I find more present in Bachman's writings...

To be able to explore a new place, and escape from reality for just a little while, to experience heart break, sadness, anger, love, joy, and to get a feel for older times; that is why I appreciate literature, and also I like the thought that someone wanted to sit down to write a...

One of my absolute favourite book is "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte. It's an amazing book, set in the 1800s, about how a plain and ordinary girl falls in love with a man who's way out of her league.
