    I get taken to this whole other world

    when I am reading a book, I get completely engulfed and I love it. It takes me away from any problems or any stress. Books just make me feel better, keep me interested and make me a dreamer. I don't understand when people tell me that they don't enjoy reading books.

    I got 5 new books so far.

    :) 3 of which are part of a trilogy and 2 are just random novels. They're all fantasy, considering my number one favorite genre is fantasy. I enjoy horror and thriller too, but the only really good books in that genre that I have read are mainly from Stephen King. anyway...

    I prefer books any day to those silly little

    e-books. I don't see the point of them. They can never replace the feel, smell & calmness of a real book.

    I can't find the desire to read it.

    .. I bought the first three parts of 50 shades of Grey to read while I recover from my toenail removal surgery - but now that I have them and need to be resting, I can't find the desire to sit and read them and find myself wishing that I'd bought the Twilight, Divergent or...

    Books were my first love.

    I've been borrowing and reading library books all my life. I just couldn't afford to buy and store all the books I want to read. Luckily, lots of free ebooks have come online, and I now read them on my tablet. I can't relax with my phone or computers switched on, but I can...

    Do authors cry when they kill off the best

    characters? Or do they smile, laugh and have a cup of tea with Satan?

    Nothing can beat the feel of a book in your

    hand..the smell of the pages when you open a new one. When I buy preowned books I just leaf through them, looking for little secrets left between the pages by previous owners. Years ago, I owned a big house with a library room where I stashed and stacked my books. When I...

    I never seem to get over a feeling

    when your favorite series/book ends. It's some sort of quiet yearning to know more, to know everything that happens to your favorite characters.

    once including the Holy Bible. Two of the books are really short. And a normal sized novel I'm reading has almost 400 pages I've been reading since June 2015. It takes me a long time to read and ponder over books, but I love them and sometimes re read sentences because I want to...

    My classmates all ridicule me

    for reading more books rather than watch movies with them. But I don't mind. Those idiots can't differentiate a book from a magazine. I'm comfortable with what I'm doing and I won't change reading for them. It hurts, but fictional characters taught me to be who I am and just be...

    Books are addicting Book Hangover When you've

    I just finished reading today "Sinsajo",

    the spanish translation for "Mockingjay". Never got to see anything from "The Hunger Games" before, and I must say I got delighted with this one. We can find themes such as war and peace, friendship, sacrifice for a common goal, and of course, everything set in a credible future...

    It's an Urdu novel. I cried for days and nights. It ripped my heart into two halves. You can find its English version "Mistletoe by Umera Ahmed" If you want to feel how sensitive life can be and how the corrupt bureaucrat system, social evils, nepotism, family oriented favors...

    I love the author Gillian Flynn.

    Gone Girl is incredible, but I'm also a major fan of her first two books; Sharp objects and Dark Places. Her novella, The Grown Up was pretty good too. I want her to write more.

    Started reading Nancy Drew Detective Books

    when I was 8. My sister's kinda upset that I'm following her around the house since she's 7 yrs older than me. She wants me to shut up. So she handed me one of her Nancy Drew Books and that paved my way to appreciate different types of styles in writing a storyline.

    One of my favorite books

    that I have read is "The African Queen". Sure, the story is a bit dated and yes, I know they made it into a movie in the 50s...but there is something about that book that kept me glued and made me read through it and unable to put it down.
