Hello, again friends!
What do you read? Why do you enjoy reading? What are some books that you are currently reading?
Those are some of the questions that I have been asked about, as of late. I feel many of us book lovers have similar reasons why we love to read, but as I don’t want to speak for others, I’ll talk about myself and why I love to read! Books…ahh! When I hold a new book, I instantly melt. I find I love everything about getting a new book; from the fresh book smell, the feel of the pages, all the way down to the pretty cover it undoubtedly has. Getting beyond all that, I love reading because I enjoy the feeling I get while reading. It’s hard to put into words, so bear with me, but I like feeling like I could go anywhere in the world or alternate world; depending on the type of book. I love a book where the impossible seems like it could happen. A story where the characters draw you in from their first breath of life, where the plot intrigues you and everything about it screams excitement! I am a lover of the ability to escape! Escaping the world around and delving into a great book has been my favorite thing to do since I was about 8, and possibly younger!
As for what I read…anything. However, my true love is anything fantasy. The sub-genre doesn’t particularly matter. As I’ve said before, all I require is an epic world that I can take my time to explore and love!
