"You forget everything. The hours slip by. You travel in your chair through centuries you seem to see before you, your thoughts are caught up in the story, dallying with the details or following the course of the plot, you enter into characters, so that it seems as if it were your own heart beating beneath their costumes." — Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary (via flowersinthelibrary)

the written escape




I'm a 19-year-old book blogger from Toronto, Ontario. This blog is a response to the people who ask me what books I read and what they're about. Through this blog I intend to review and blog about my interest in books. I'm currently reading Pnin by Vladimir Nabokov, Hangsaman by Shirley Jackson, and American Pastoral by Philip Roth.
