Confessions of a Bookaholic.

I’ve loved reading ever since I can remember, but unfortunately I don’t read as much as I would like to these days, unless its the type of book that you just can’t put down. I come across these books more often than you’d think, but most of the time even though the book is still really good I end up spending my time doing other pointless activities like watching TV (at the moment all I’ve been watching is Pretty Little Liars) or wasting time on the computer (its amazing how much time can pass when you’re not even really doing anything). 

Therefore, to try and get back into reading a bit more I’ve decided I’m going to undertake the Gilmore Girls Reading Challenge (all explanation necessary is in the link).  At the moment I’m thinking I will aim for at least Lorelei level because that seems possible, but depending on how long it takes me I might even aspire to the Rory level. Obviously this challenge is a couple years old so I will be changing it up a little bit to suit myself and make from March 2013 – March 2014. I intend to begin after I have finished the final book of my favourite trilogy (The Delirium Trilogy) which comes out on my birthday (March 5). I believe this will be a fun activity and I am mainly doing it to broaden my horizen so to speak. I have a tendency to only read one genre of books so I’m hoping this will not only enable me to learn to enjoy reading different genres (especially classics) but also encourage me to begin reading a lot more. If you think this is something you’d be interested in doing let me know and hopefuly we can discuss some of the books we’ve read. 

On the topic of my favourite books I’m going to create a little challenge/list of books that I highly recommend everyone should read as they are books that I just could not put down. I don’t know how long this will take me but I will start it today. It will be a mixture of trilogy’s and individual books but I really love to share books that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself with other people (like I do with my sister all the time) so it would actually mean a lot to me if you could take to time to read my list of my favourite books (when I have compiled it and posted it) and at least consider reading even a few of them. Just try to ignore how bad my description of each book will be 😛

Until next time,

When a good man goes to war.

Demons run when a good man goes to war.
Night will fall and drown the sun
when a good man goes to war.
Friendship dies and true love lies
Night will fall and the dark will rise
when a good man goes to war.
Demons run but count the cost
the battle’s won but the child is lost.
