    Books are such lovely things.

    Portals to fascinating universes. I probably wouldn't survive for very long without them.

    Over the past two weeks I've been reading,

    The Dark Heroines and I've been amazed at how much I love the writing, the plot, the character development and the romance of course. I don't normally read physical books that often but with this one, it was instant love.

    Sometimes i feel like the only way i am truly

    alive is when i am reading a book or thinking up a book to write. Life can be so depressing and lonely some times.

    I have recently realised how many great

    children's books I have never read. It's quite a list. The main reason for this is that as a child I had problems with reading and comprehension. Having overcome these I'm enjoying the pleasure of children's fiction for the first time as an adult. And I am loving each minute of...

    I've never really understood

    Grab the book you're currently reading,

    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 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...

    Has anybody read Go Set a Watchman?

    What did you think? I'm not sure I understood it completely. It was okay but definitely not as awesome as To Kill a Mocking Bird.

    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...

    Books are addicting Book Hangover When you've

    finished a book and you suddenly return to the real world, but the real world feels incomplete or surreal because you're still living in the world of the book. A goals to live a life of a girl I'd love to read a book about.:)

    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...

    Everyone read Joe Hill.

    He is Stephen King's son, and he writes horror, but he really has a unique voice, separate from his father. He has 3 novels (Heart-Shaped Box, Horns, Nos4a2) and I literally read them all within days of purchasing them. He also has an anthology of short stories. Read him!

    After having my daughter I wasn't able to

    really read anything because of how much energy it takes to care for her. She's 2 months now and today I was finally able to get some reading in without being exhausted! I feel so good to be able to do something for me.

    One of my favourite opening lines to a book is

    "It was a queer sultry summer, the summer they executed the Rosenburgs, and I didn't know what I was doing in New York" Guess which book it's from without cheating :D

    I think books should be age rated

    because anyone can walk into a shop and buy a book it's crazy... Some books are just not for children/ young people.

    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.

    and a steaming cup of coco. One of my favourite books is the "The breadwinner" I forgot who wrote it- I read it as a child. It's about a young girl who has to take on her families responsibilities, because of the Taliban. It's extremely eye opening to the fact that many...
