Reading Addict

I have been always called a bookworm. If I suddenly go missing, you can always find me under a book. 

Reading has become equivalent to breathing for me to the point that I cannot fall asleep till I read at least a page. Since 2011 I have been keeping a reading challenge on Goodreads and I have never completed it until last year. Last year, ladies & gentlemen, I read a total of 100 books. WooHoo!! 

The fact that I was unemployed probably 5 months of the year also helped me achieve my target. All in all those were best 5 months of my life wherein I did what I truly enjoyed. 

A part of me actually dies when someone says they don't read and they would rather wait for the movie to come out. I feel we live in a world where everybody wants shortcut and don't even want to imagine things and rather have a movie do the work for them. 

I sometimes use books as an escape method wherein I dont want to face the real world problems. When I'm so engrossed in a book with what's happening with the character and all the emotions they go thorough, I also become a part of it. Once i'm done with the book i feel like I have won a battle and can face my real world problems. :)

I thought i'll share the my top 10 favorite books of 2016 to get you all in the habit of reading.
