Dreaming Novel Things: Bookworms– Glamorized in Fiction, Crazed in Reality

dreamingnovelthingsDreaming Novel Things is a feature in which I discuss book related subjects, but in a creative way. I’ll use interviews, narratives and lists to talk about book trends, book opinions and bookish matters. If you have any book related subjects you’d like to see me discuss just leave me a comment below!

I’m really impressed with Neal Gaiman’s creativity and imagination. The story was so unique. I do have to admit, I tried to scare my sister a couple of times with the picture in the book and I ended up giving myself nightmares. That’s karma for ya.
