    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.

    So I finished The Disclaimer by Renee Knight,

    and it was a good book. I couldn't put it down and it was suspenseful, so if you like thriller books, then this is a good book.

    Do you ever finish a book,

    and realize everyone is carrying on with their lives as if you didn't just experience emotional trauma at the hands of a paperback?

    That mini panic attack you get

    when you think your Nook or Kindle broke... Then that amazing feeling of relief that you get when you fix it and it comes back on. :)

    Do authors cry when they kill off the best

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

    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

    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.:)

    The one thing that sucks about Nooks

    and Kindles... Is that you need to charge them in order to use them. So, I need to stop reading to charge it. :(

    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 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.

    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.

    Someone asked me why I don't use a kindle

    instead of reading an actual book, I couldn't be the only one who loves to actually hold a book and read until all hours at night.

    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...

    Nothing can beat the feel of a book in your

    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!

    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.

    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.
