Today is a no-classes day since it’s Bonifacio Day (a holiday to pay tribute to one of our national heroes). And guess what I’ve been doing? If you answered any thing other than reading, clearly, you’re new here or you don’t really pay attention. Actually, I am making out with this book, kind of. Haha. Kidding!
I actually have a quiz tomorrow in Pedia and a report I have to finish, but that’s what late nights are for. Haha. Instead, I am cuddled up in my bed, reading Jodi Picoult & Samantha van Leer’s Between The Lines almost all day. Yeah, same old, same old. The fact that I am alone in my dorm because my roommate left for their group meeting made it so much better. I really love the peace and quiet whenever I’m reading, I mean, who doesn’t? And so, here’s a little something about the book:
Delilah is a bookworm, and like any other person who loves reading, she is some sort of an outcast. She hates school as much as she love her fictional worlds. A book from the library she happened to find is currently stealing her whole attention. It would have been easy if it was yet another fantasy or romance book fit for her age. But instead, she is hooked and addicted with a children’s fairy tale, complete with a prince and all that. Of course, it’s a typical happily-ever-after story, which she always wished to experience. But what if the book isn’t what it is and that the fictional character she adored the most is actually real? What if the prince in the story is trapped in a happy-ever-after he does not wish for himself?
Well, isn’t that just what every one of us bookworms dream of? For our beloved fictional characters to come to life and live in the real world. That’s what got me into buying this and reading it. I am halfway through and I am really enjoying it, though the fairy tale part of the book is the typical childhood story, nothing new.
