Reading

Hey guys
So this week is going to be super random, I’m going to talk about books and reading. I know this is a topic not everybody likes, so I won’t mind if you just skip this week’s post ~how would I even find out~. But I really like reading , it’s one of the few things that can really make me happy. A lot of people say they enjoy reading so much because it takes them to another world and makes them forget their problems. You might think that it sounds stupid but it is the truth. You don’t know how many times reading helped me. It doesn’t matter if you read for 20 minutes or 2 hours. The time you spent reading is less time you spent thinking about something you hate about yourself or thinking problems or doing selfharm.  A lot of people say that celebrities saved their life, I don’t judge that I’m happy for them, but if I had to say who/what helped me it would be reading. Because when I’m  reading , I’m not thinking about my problems. It’s just me, my book and the fictional character with whom I’m possibly in love with.
I do have to admit I’ve been reading a lot less lately. It’s just I have to work a lot more for school now, I spent a lot of time watching youtubers and then there is the tumblr&Pintrest obsession. ~we’re not going to talk about that problem~ Normally it takes me lass then a week to finish a book of around 250 pages, but I’ve been reading the death cure for 2/3 months now and I’m still not done yet!
I made a list of books I want to finish/read this year. I’ll give them to you and maybe you could give me some feedback on them. But no spoilers!!!!
  •  The death cure by James Dasher
  • Perks of being a wallflower  by Stephen Chbosky
  • The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee Carter
  • Keep it simple by Kevin De Bruyne
  •  If I stay by Gayle Forman
  •  Love, Tanya by Tanya Burr
  • The list by  Siobhan Vivian

So yeah that are the books I want to have read before the end of 2015.
I totally understand if you say reading isn’t for you, I respect that. But I think it’s not totally true, you just haven’t found the right book yet. Believe me I used to sat the same thing, until the day I started reading these adventures about a speaking mouse who’s a journalist. ~We all know who he is~
That was all for this week. I hope you enjoyed it and I’ll talk to you nest Thursday.

Introduction

Hey guys
My name is Joyce and I’m 16 years old. It might seem likes this is my first time blogging but I’ve actually been doing this for a while. I used to be on tumblr, but I recently –and with that I mean this afternoon- found out that google had this super cool blogger thing. So I decided to come here. I really like blogging and want to take it more serious. That’s why I though coming here was a good choice. I understand that you might want to know more about me so I’ll give you a quick introduction.
Like I said my name is Joyce and I’m 16 years old. My parents divorced when I was around three, so don’t feel sorry it’s all I know. I have an older sister named Emily. She’s turning 19 and is studying to become a teacher. I also have a half-brother named Mirko. He’s 4 years old. Stefan, Mirko’s dad is my stepdad. –go figure- I really hate him! I know hate is a strong word, but I really do. He is the reason why I don’t want to come to my mom’s anymore.
When it comes to school, I’m a pretty good student. Second in all of my classes. –it’s not as frustrating as it seems- Chemistry, math and English are my favourites. I’m not a very social person. I mean I have my little group of friends to gang out with, but there’re only two people who I really feel comfortable with: Yade and Jytte. There is also this guy I talk a lot to trough Facebooks –he’s in my school, don’t worry- but that’s mainly because I have a crush on him. I honestly don’t want many friends –I tend to get anxious around a lot of people or strangers- That’s one of the reasons why I don’t go to parties.  I don’t really have a hobby expect reading and blogging  –I don’t count Netflix as a hobby- I am looking for one though. –I’m thinking about trying photography-
Yeah I think that’s all. If you want to know anything else don’t hesitate to ask!
I do want to tell you another two things. One: I am Belgian, so English isn’t my native language. Please keep that in mind, I’m doing my best to write as correctly as possible. Two: I try to post every Thursday.
That’s all for now; I hope you like it and I’ll see you guys next Thursday.
Love you all
Bye
