To be somewhere else, Cath thought.
To get free of ourselves.
To stop, Cath thought.
To stop being anything or anywhere at all.
Cath looked down at her notebook. To disappear.
– ‘Fangirl’ by Rainbow Rowell
I’m a book addict (isn’t that obvious?). I’m an 18 year old girl who lives on a sunny island called Singapore. I hope that I’ll find more people out there who share the same passion as me. I enjoy sharing opinions about books that I’ve read and I would love to hear yours too! If you’re interested in reading my book reviews and knowing fragments of my life, do visit my page regularly!
Lounging on a couch, having a ‘date’ with my books is one of my favourite ways to spend time. I’m a really picky reader and I don’t finish half of the books that I have started reading. Please don’t be enraged if I didn’t like your favourite book, opinions differ! Most of the time, you will find me reading a book either from the Young Adult or Romance shelf. Well, I do read other genres but sporadically.
Please bear with my occasional slips in grammar/vocabulary/sentence structure, I’m trying very hard to improve on it. Do offer any constructive advice but no rude comments please!
Why did I start writing reviews on fictional books? Well…. Do you remember reading a really good book? And when you’re done with the book, you realise that everyone is just carrying on with their lives while you’re suffering from an emotional trauma?
That’s why I started writing reviews. I just can’t bear to part with my fictional world.
Another reason as to why I’m so desperately in love with reading?
Reading makes me disappear. In that several minutes or hours, I don’t feel like I’m myself. It’s as though my problems, my being and my soul are three separate entities. I get lost. Lost in the world of fictional friends and leading a life that I would never dream to have. It’s my personal escapade.
