The Importance of Stories. . .

“We read to know that we are not alone.” – C.S Lewis

We all need to escape sometimes. To forget about the mundane troubles that bog down our minds and run away to another world. We all have different ways of doing this, some people hide at the back of a cinema and fall into films, some people block the world out with headphones and listen to their favourite songs, some transform into the heroes of their video games. But for me it was always books. Whenever I felt like it was all to much I would fill my mind with somewhere else, drown my worries with someone elses story.

I will read anything; fiction, non fiction, fantasy, sci-fi, romance, horror, crime, I want to try it all. There’s something addictive about finding a new story, transforming into someone else for a while and returning to the real world with a new perspective. My bookcase is my doorway to new places; it’s a time machine and an airplane without needing to leave my room.

This site is where I’ll be talking about the books I love, the stories that change me and the ones I’ll probably forget in a few days. There is nothing I love more then exchanging thoughts on the books I’ve read and receiving recommendations so I hope you’ll all join me.
