    It Makes Me Feel Better =)

    I actually thought it was childish and stupid, because I usually read something for adults and..I mean not adults in a meaning that children can't read it! Just like for example "the Poe Shadow", "What Time Devours" and "Blind Faith", it's good...

    My Favourite Books

    We read many books as a child and many of these are forgotten, but Roald Dahl has remained a firm memory in my adult mind. The Twits and the the BFG would have to be my all time Favourites, and the books were only made more exciting when Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda...

    Danny, The Champion Of The World

    There are several books that have stayed with me since childhood. Wherever I moved, and I moved a lot, those books got packed and unpacked. One of them is "Danny, the Champion of the World". It's full of heart and adventure and that sweet wackiness that comes from Dahl. I have...

    Love is him, his smile, his eyes, his voice. Love is his books, kis hugs, his tears. Love is him, but he isn't here now, he will not here anymore, and I am nothing without him.
