    It has been months since the last time I bought

    some books so yesterday, since it's payday, I decided to go to my favorite secondhand bookstore and treat myself. I spent an hour or more inside the store that the saleslady probably think I'm sort of crazy or that I am going to rob or shoplift. Haha! No, I am not like that. 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.

    I read all Sarah Dessen's books from 12-15.

    Not because I related to the teenage girl protagonists but because their troubled lives were not troubled at all lol. It was a nice break from my own but still interesting enough

    sit by the window while it is snowing, brew some hot coffee, get some toasted bagels, cuddle yourself in a blanket, light some scented candles and bam, it turns into heaven.

    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.
