My name is Hannah, a bibliophile who keeps being told she doesn’t need any more books. Those words however, don’t make much sense to me when strung together in a sentence like that. Sacrilege I tell you.
I figured that I would put those book buying and book worm tendencies to good use and start this blog where I can document what I’m reading and share my love and enthusiasm for all things literature related.
I also suffer from some severe depression and anxiety. Reading has always been a really great way for me to practice self care. It allows me a way to escape from the particularly nasty feelings I have for awhile, to be able to vanish into any character that I feel like and be able to view the world from a different perspective. In doing so, I’m able to remember that depression and anxiety are not something that has to control me, and that every little small step and small accomplishment is something to be proud of.
“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” Neil Gaiman, Coraline.
Every year I try and follow Popsugar’s Reading Challenge, and as much as I try I always struggle to complete them. This year I thought I would set up my own challenge and document what I’m reading in this blog! In my next post I’ll give some more information about that!
I hope you join me!
