hey guys! welcome back to another post where you get to have an inside look at my random obsessions! the obsession of the day is….. reading! i am a TOTAL reading fanatic! sit me down with a good book and i will be thoroughly entertained for the rest of the day! reading is just… ughhh… its amazing!! you can get lost in a world that isn’t your own, and become the characters that you’re reading about! you feel all the emotions they’re feeling, all the struggles feel like they’re your own; everything about them becomes you! reading is an amazing experience and i wouldn’t trade it for the world! not only am i a reader, but i’m also a reader who reads like 10 books at the same time 😬 my mom always asks me how i keep up with all the different story lines, and to be honest, i really don’t know. once i get to a boring part of one book, i move onto another one for a while, keep doing that until i’m done with the books 😂
