    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...

    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...

    Do authors cry when they kill off the best

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

    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.

    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...

    because people will hurt you one day. But books will make you forget all the problem.

    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 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've read two books from Susan Beth Pfeffer's

    dystopian series, Life as we knew if and The dead and the gone. I tried to look for the 3rd book at Barnes and Noble but no luck, I even tried at my schools library but apparently someone stole the book. So my only option is to buy it online

    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...

    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...

    I recently completed "Amar-bail" by Umera Ahmed.

    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've got 5 books I'm reading at

    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...

    I like the escape from reality.

    Probably why I choose sci-fi and fantasy more often than not. Sometimes the only way I can escape my thoughts is by pushing them aside and traveling to another place.

    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.

    My new year's resolution is to read more books.

    Last year I maybe read 5. This year I want to at least do double that. I read several books at once and alternate between them and it takes me months to finish one.
