Books

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”

Cicero

I love books. I always have. It’s something that is part of my everyday life. Or, more specifically, something that puts a stop to my everday life. When you start reading a book, real time stops and you are allowed to disappear into the time of another world, with infinitely more interesting people and places, where things that for some reason aren’t allowed to happen in real life do happen. It’s the ordinary person’s greatest magic trick.

Books come in many forms, and I love a great deal of them. My favourite genre is fantasy- that’s where you can really disappear into your own little world. I love fantasy so much I was inspired to write a bit of it myself. I also love Science Fiction, Historical or Mystery books, as well as dipping into some of the beaten-up Classic books you’ll find in your average library. There’s always more to find when it comes to books though; I always love trying something new!

Some of my favourite authors

  • J.R.R Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit)
  • Terry Pratchett (The Discworld novels)
  • J.K Rowling (Harry Potter)
  • Christopher Paolini (The Inheritance Saga)
  • Brian Jacques (The Redwall series)
