The revision of my exams drives me crazy, so some nights I feel like I need a real escape. Not an escape of online shopping (which is quite enjoyable too), but an escape of reading a book with a cup of tea, in my bed. I absolutely love reading books as it is the only thing that calms me down when I feel quite stressed. My friends think I am weird for reading books for pleasure, and they give me weird looks when I recommend them a new book to read, but it's something that I love doing since I was young. I used to read a couple of pages of a book before I went to bed and slept like an angel. This last year has been stressful, I barely had time to read any books at night. I usually finish homework and projects for school at 10 at night, which means that I will be in bed at around 10.30. Which seemed pointless for me to read, as I usually fall asleep at 11 at night.
Now that my revision is taking the best of me, I am trying to relax a bit more at night. I try to be in bed early, I try to read books. I am currently reading Looking for Alaska by John Green and I feel like I am in another world when I read it. I guess you could say that books are my great escape. I'm nearly finished in Looking for Alaska and I am planning on reading The Fault In Our Stars next. If you have any other book recommendations please comment them below, tweet me or email me! Because I need some books for when I finished my exams! ;)
